Meet Dr. Albers

Dr. Mark T. AlbersBackground and Education

Dr. Albers grew up in a small farming community in northeastern Nebraska.  A third generation dentist, he followed in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps by attending Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska.

Dr. Albers spent one year at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa, before transferring to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to finish his undergraduate education.  He was accepted to Creighton University’s School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska, where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery.

Dr. Albers moved to Colorado Springs in 1987 to work as an associate in a large dental practice.  In 1990, he took over an established practice located in downtown Colorado Springs.  In 2005, Dr. Albers moved the office to its current location at 2155 Hollowbrook Drive in north central Colorado Springs.

Philosophy and Commitment to Excellence

Dr. Albers understands the importance of staying up to date on the latest developments in dentistry.  He is committed to continually learning and improving his dental skills so he can provide the best dental care possible for his patients.  Therefore, Dr. Albers spends over 100 hours each year on continuing dental education.  Since 1991, Dr. Albers has been a member of a local study club which meets eight to ten times each year to discuss the latest in dental techniques and dental technology, and to work on complex dental cases.  Since 1995,  he has participated in a second study club, meeting for multi-day conferences two to three times per year.  Most recently, Dr. Albers joined the local chapter of the Seattle Study Club, a national club which brings in world-class speakers for its meetings.  Dr. Albers is a regular attendee dental conferences in Colorado and other states.

As a result of this commitment to excellence, Dr. Albers is regularly listed as a top dentist in Colorado Springs in the Top Dentists editions of Colorado Springs Style Magazine  and Denver-based magazine, 5280.

Family

Although Dr. Albers and his wife both grew up in Nebraska, they met in Colorado Springs while playing on a co-ed softball team.  They were married in 1988 and raised their kids in Colorado Springs.  Dr. Albers and his wife were very active in coaching and attending many sporting events when their kids were younger.  They are now enjoying a new stage in life as “empty-nesters!”  In his spare time – which he has more of now – Dr. Albers enjoys camping, fishing, and snowboarding.
