Naomi Willden, DDS
Dr. Willden is a Colorado native who came to Montrose because she loves the outdoors and appreciates small town values. Dr. Willden was introduced to Montrose as a kid through family camping trips and family reunions. Following a clinical rotation in Gunnison, she knew she was destined to practice in the area.

This is why she elected to enhance her training through a one-year General Practice Residency at the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus. Dr. Willden’s hospital-based residency provided her with advanced skills and training in oral surgery, root canals, implants, moderate sedation, dentures, and emergency medicine. Dr. Willden continues to gain clinical knowledge and skills through her commitment to continuing education and is proud to practice according to evidence-based principles.
Dr. Willden is passionate about building relationships with her patients. She is committed to tailoring treatment to each individual’s needs and providing honest care in a safe, non-intimidating environment.
