Dr. Vincenzo Artino- A Colorado native, Dr. Vinnie is the youngest child of 6 and the first in his family to even graduate from high school! He then went on on to graduate from Regis University with a bachelors degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree through the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Baumgart is proud of Dr. Vinnie and his accomplishments, having watched him attain these milestones ever since he became best friends with Patrick, Dr. Baumgart’s oldest son, at a young age.
As a scholar of dentistry he prides himself as a member and contributing clincian among his peers through clubs and associations that expand his skillset and education. These organizations include The American Dental Association (ADA), Colorado Dental Association (CDA), Metro Denver Dental Society (MDDS), Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), International Partnership for the Study of Occlusion (IPSO), and Denver Implant Study Club (DISC). He has been a proud recipient of the Alliance for Choice in Education (ACE) Scholarship, an alumni contributor, and has been honored as a guest speaker on several occasions.
Prior to pursuing a career in dentistry, Dr. Vinnie spent part of his youth assisting in the continual care of his sister living with quadriplegic cerebral palsy. He received his Cerified Nursing Assisting degree, expanding his knowledge and skills that increased the quality of his caregiving and attentiveness to his patient’s needs. This continues to be his motivation for providing compassionate care that is truly patient centered. After visiting the Dominican Republic as a volunteer through medical mission he knew dentistry was the concentration he desired to use to serve and care for others. He is a self-proclaimed gentle giant with a huge heart and pursues work and life with passion and a strong sense of humor. Currently he is working 6 days a week at various offices, but with his remaining spare time he loves being with family and friends, enjoying outdoor activities, going to the movies, bowling, etc.
Dr. Vinnie is truly passionate about providing dentistry that will transform your smile and leave you feeling confident and well cared for. Please introduce yourself when you come in for your next visit as he looks forward to meeting you!
