Dr. Michael Berger, a native of Florida, had the good fortune of visiting Colorado as a teen. The endless outdoor activities and the beauty of the Rocky Mountains left a lasting impression. He knew from a young age that one day he wanted to call Colorado his home.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Miami, Dr. Berger moved to Philadelphia to attend the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dental Medicine. He had the honor of being the first dental student to serve on the University’s Institutional Review Board – an administrative body that protects the rights and welfare of all human research subjects.
Following dental school, Dr. Berger had the privilege to stay at the University of Pennsylvania to attend the two-year orthodontic residency program. Dr. Berger was awarded by the University of Pennsylvania for his research on the relationship between narrow maxillae and pediatric sleep apnea, and the subsequent effects of rapid palatal expansion. During residency, Dr. Berger met his wife Crystal, who was a dental student.
Dr. Berger worked in private practice for 5 years in central Florida before moving to Colorado to put down roots and start a family. He and his wife recently welcomed the birth of their son, Maximilian.
Along with spending time with his family, Dr. Berger enjoys taking advantage of the extensive outdoor and cultural activities that Colorado has to offer.
Dr. Berger is committed to staying current with advances in orthodontics and technology. He is an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the Rocky Mountain Association of Orthodontists.
