This award recognizes extraordinary collegiality, outreach and community service, highlighting the role a prosthodontist plays in advancing the quality of life for patients in their community.
“While it is a great honor to be recognized by such an esteemed organization as the ACP, the real joy has been the over 45 years of helping patients with their dental needs,” said Dr. Becker.
Dr. Becker has been a member of the ACP for over 40 years and maintains a private practice in Denver, Colorado. He previously served as a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Restorative Dentistry at the University of Colorado School of Dentistry, where he was also the course director of pre-doctoral courses on dental implants.
Dr. Becker studied Biological Science at Colorado State University, and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Marquette University. He began his specialty training in prosthodontics while in the U.S. Air Force, and completed the training at the University of Washington in Seattle, earning a certificate in fixed prosthodontics and a Master of Science in Dentistry (MSD) in removable prosthodontics.
A prosthodontist is a dental specialist who focuses on the restoration and replacement of missing teeth and correcting other oral or facial issues. With their advanced training, prosthodontists are able to help patients with implants, dentures and veneers, all the way to full mouth and jaw reconstructions.
