Your Friendly Salem Dentist
Dr. Kolts is a firm proponent of the idea that we treat people, not teeth. This means that Dr. Kolts will take the time to develop a relationship with you as an individual and recommend treatments that take into account your total-body health. From time-to-time, you’ll probably hear Dr. Kolts say “if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” This motto that Dr. Kolts lives by means that he strives for the highest quality patient care. This is demonstrated by the state-of-the-art equipment and dental materials in the office, the highly trained staff that he surrounds himself with, and the way he respectfully treats his patients.
Dr. Kolts’ greatest pride is his family. His wife, Chalece, is a stay-at-home mother for their three children (and Dr. Kolts knows that she works much harder than he does!). His daughter, Brielle, is seven and an avid reader. Dallin is four years old and wants to be just like his dad when he grows up. You may even see him in the office “helping out” from time to time. Levi is 18 months old and is as cute and mischievous as they come. They also recently added a 1 year old dog name Louie to their family.
In his spare time, Dr. Kolts likes to go camping with his family, play golf (as long as nobody is watching), and relax at the coast. His family is active in their local church.
Dr. Kolts earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of Minnesota. He also has an MBA from The Pennsylvania State University. He is a member of the Washington County Dental Society, the Oregon Dental Association, the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentists, and the Academy of LDS Dentists.
