Pediatric (Kids) Dentist:
Dr. Colton Flake
Dr. Colt grew up in Snowflake, Arizona. He loved his childhood in a small town where he enjoyed playing football, basketball and golf. After high school he served a two-year mission in Mexico for the LDS church. He learned to speak Spanish fluently and gained a great love for the people there. While attending Arizona State University he met and later married his best friend and lovely wife, Ashley. Dr. Colt loves business, but has always known he wanted to be a dentist. After earning a business degree at ASU, he and Ashley moved to Colorado where he attended the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. In 2010 Dr. Colt graduated as a Doctor of Dental Surgery and began a two year specialty program at the University of Nevada Las Vegas to specialize in treating children. While in Nevada, Dr. Colt and Ashley welcomed their twin boys, Casen and Oliver. Since they enjoyed living in Colorado they decided to move back and joined Comfort Kids in 2012. Dr. Colt thoroughly enjoys working with his patients here. He also loves spending time outdoors, golfing, scuba diving, and traveling, but most of all he enjoys a nice piece of cheesecake!
Dr. Rosalyn Shkolnikov
Dr. Roz was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. After completing her Bachelors at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst Commonwealth Honors College she obtained her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Roz did several out-reach programs involving children and as a result fell in love with pediatric dentistry. To enhance her dental training, she completed a general practice residency at the NYU Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. Working in New York taught her how to deal with very complex dental cases, but more importantly how to find a good piece of pizza! Dr. Roz was given the opportunity to complete an additional two-year residency in pediatric dentistry with NYU Lutheran Medical Center and Suncoast Community Health Centers in Tampa Florida. Dr. Roz has worked in multiple hospitals and community health centers providing specialized pediatric dental care. Dr. Roz loves seeing her patients grow and enjoy coming to the dentist. Outside of the clinic, Dr. Roz loves spending time with family, staying active and getting to know different cultures through food, theatre and travel.
Dr. Reza Mesmarian
At the age of 12, most children want to be a fireman, an astronaut, or a race car driver; Dr. Reza wanted to become a dentist. He wanted to pursue a life of helping others and working with his hands. The connection he made working with tools in his grandfather’s shop, to using dental instruments solidified his dream to become a dentist. The value he sees in serving others, especially children, has helped him maintain a strong and happy work ethic.
After completing his undergraduate degree at Idaho State University, Dr. Reza continued his training at the University Of Colorado School Of Dental Medicine. After earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree he knew he wanted to work with children so he joined a kid’s dental clinic in Denver. Wanting to further advance his career, he later joined us at Comfort Dental Kids and we are glad he did!
In his personal life, Dr. Reza love to run with his best friend, a Siberian husky named Bear. He has two nephews that are full of energy whom he dearly loves and enjoys watching as they grow and develop into young men.
Dr. Reza’s philosophy is to be kind, loving, and nurturing to everyone. He enjoys addressing children’s needs and helping them pursue their dreams.
Dr. Mark Gilstrap
Dr. Mark Gilstrap was born and raised in central California. As a child, he enjoyed going to the dentist, especially when he could hold the mirror during his check-up. After high school he had the opportunity to work as a pediatric dental assistant, from then on, he LOVED going to the dentist. Dr. Mark served a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the most exotic of locations: Denver, Colorado. During his mission, he fell in love with Denver and the people here. After his mission he attended Brigham Young University, and shared a chemistry class with a cute girl named Ariel. After several study sessions, Ariel earned a B and Dr. Mark earned Ariel’s hand in marriage. Dr. Mark then attended dental school at Roseman College of Dental Medicine. During his schooling, he and Ariel came to Denver to complete a state of the art in-utero fetal surgery at Children’s Hospital of Colorado, for their unborn daughter Emma. With so much love for and connection to Denver, it was no surprise that Dr. Mark returned to Colorado to complete a two-year pediatric dental residency. Dr. Mark loves sports, traveling, tinkering with things and spending time with his wife and two daughters Emma and Addy. He is always on the hunt for good food spots and “the best wings in the world.”
