About Dr. Roper:
From his early teens, dentistry was Dr. Roper’s first choice of careers. Dr. Roper graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1985. Escaping Texas in 1984 for a summer vacation during dental school, Dr. Roper found Boulder and fell in love with it. Unfortunately, upon graduation, opportunities for a new dentist in Boulder were very slim. Dr. Roper worked 4 years in Denver as an associate in two different practices. This was a blessing in disguise, being able to work with and learn from excellent experienced dentists. In 1989, Dr. Roper opened his office in Boulder from scratch, and has enjoyed living and working there ever since.
Dr. Roper married his wife Barb in 1978. She is now happily retired after 27 years of nursing, 20 of them at University of Colorado Hospital. Much of their free time is spent together outdoors. They stay busy skiing, hiking, biking, traveling, reading, gardening, and dabbling in photography. They have two married children and four grandchildren.
Dentistry continues to interest and excite Dr. Roper. Dr. Roper spends significant time learning and staying current with advancements. Dr. Roper enjoys the technical aspects of dentistry, but it is the close connection to people that makes this a satisfying and fulfilling career.
