Our Doctors

James F. Kinkade DDS

As a sixth-generation Colorado native and a third generation Colorado dentist, I sincerely appreciate the outgoing Colorado lifestyle.

I am committed to providing the highest quality, skillful and personal service that one would expect from their family. My sincere commitment to patient education has and always will be a cornerstone of my practice. I have been practicing dentistry since 2007 when I graduated from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine where I gained extensive knowledge and expertise in all aspects of dentistry.

I live in Denver with my wife Amy and our young son Carson. Our family enjoys spending time outdoors, traveling and meeting new people. Recreationally, I enjoy skiing, scuba diving, golf and working around the house.

Drs. Dave and Chelsea Stangl

We are very excited to be a part of the Sopris Smiles family. We met in dental school at Boston University and moved out to Colorado after graduation. We worked individually for 8 years and then decided we were better together and bought a practice in Crested Butte in 2017. We jumped at the opportunity to work with Dr. James Kinkade and combine our passion for creating an exceptional dental experience to this practice.

Our prevention driven philosophy has always been to provide an excellent experience by using the best technology available to catch problems while they are small and painless and provide faster, more comfortable procedures. We absolutely love being dentists and business owners and look forward to meeting you!

Dr. Peter Huettner

I am a native of Rochester, Minnesota and a third-generation alum of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After college, I moved out east to earn my dental degree at the Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, PA. I then continued to New York City where I completed additional training at the General Practice Residency program at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn. I spent time working at several private practices in NYC before finally settling a few years ago at my new home in the Denver area.

I have been working to serve the diverse needs of patients within the private practice setting since completion of residency. Implant dentistry, orthodontics, sleep medicine, endodontics, and esthetic dentistry are of interest to me and I am committed to continuing education in these fields, as well as a wide array of other dental topics, in order to provide the best and most current knowledge and care for my patients.

In my free time, I enjoy skiing, hiking, mountain biking, camping, and exploring all the wonderful things that Colorado has to offer. I also likes to relax and cheer on my Wisconsin Badgers and Minnesota Vikings, although I have become partial to the local teams in recent years as well, especially the Rockies, Nuggets, and Broncos.
