Dr. Ava Khodakhast

Dr. Ava Khodakhast (also known as Dr. Ava or Dr. Khoda) believes her vast experience and many hours of continuing education ensure her patients always receive the highest quality care. “I consider dentistry not only a science but an art. I enjoy improving the lives of my patients, and that in itself is priceless.” 

She graduated as a Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2000 and obtained her American DDS from the University of Missouri Kansas City. She continued her studies for three more years of training at the Medical College of Georgia, where she completed her master’s in Oral Biology and her Residency in Prosthodontics, a branch of dentistry specializing in cosmetic, implant, and complex removable and fixed mouth rehabilitation procedures. 

Dr. Khodakhast then challenged herself further by earning the prestigious “Diplomate” status with the American Board of Prosthodontics and “Fellow” status with the American College of Prosthodontists by taking up board examinations, titles that only a few carry in the specialty of prosthodontics.

Before coming to Colorado, Dr. Khodakhast served as assistant director of Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of Missouri in Kansas City (UMKC). While at UMKC, Dr. Khodakhast also worked in private practice performing the techniques and skills she taught regarding complex and cosmetic case scenarios. 

Dr. Khodakhast was born and raised in Kuwait and is fluent in Farsi and Arabic. Dr. Khodakhast is a citizen of the world and has resided in many countries.

When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Khodakhast enjoys spending time with her husband and their puppies, Jolie & Beau. She and her husband enjoy learning about and experiencing new cultures. They also enjoy sampling new cuisines and watching foreign films. 

Dr. Khodakhast is excited to be in Colorado, where she gets to enjoy all the beautiful outdoors and the great lifestyle it has to offer.

We cannot wait for you and your family to meet Dr. Ava Khodakhast.
