Dr. Amy Zelko Strives to Provide Quality Care to Each Patient

Dr. Amy Zelko has known that she wanted to be a pediatric dentist since before she started dental school. Her goal was to have a career that allowed her to combine her love for art, science, and helping children. She first graduated with her bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison before going to dental school at Marquette University School of Dentistry, where she graduated second in her class.

After graduating, Dr. Zelko completed a residency in pediatric dentistry at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC), which is consistently ranked in the top five children’s hospitals in the country. She recently moved to Colorado and joined our practice in 2023.

Dr. Zelko has completed the rigorous examinations required to become board-certified with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. She was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Dental Society, which is a national dental honor society for individuals ranking in the top 10 percent of their dental class. She also served as the president of the Marquette University School of Dentistry Special Care Dentistry Association Student Network while in dental school.

Patients love that Dr. Zelko strives to provide the highest quality of dental care for every young patient she sees. She is known for her warm and caring professional demeanor. Providing a positive dental experience for both patients and their parents is her top priority. She genuinely loves being able to work with children on a daily basis. She loves seeing a child smile while visiting the dentist!

Dr. Zelko’s husband previously served in the United States Navy, which brought them to South Carolina and Virginia prior to moving to Colorado. As a military spouse, she has gained a lot of experience working at multiple different types of offices. She has worked with many other pediatric dentists around the country and in doing so has picked up new skills and techniques.

In her free time, Dr. Zelko enjoys traveling, hiking, listening to music, watching movies, and trying out new coffee shops.
