Meet the Team at Colorado Precision Dentistry



Dr. Bailey

Dr. Brent D. Bailey D.D.S.

Dr. Bailey has been practicing in Highlands Ranch, Colorado since 1984. He is a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. His love for his profession is part of his family’s history, as his father was a dentist and two of his brothers are practicing dentists in Michigan.

Dr. Bailey is a continual student in the art and science of dentistry. Because of Dr. Bailey’s advanced work in modern restorative techniques, he was personally requested by the founder of the world’s most prestigious independent dental research group, Clinical Research, to be an “evaluator” of current technologies for this organization. He has now served in this non-profit organization for more than two decades.

Brent is a committed Christian and a dedicated family man. He believes that sound physical, emotional, and spiritual health all contribute to our enjoyment of life. Brent enjoys a host of activities including running, biking, skiing and photography. He loves the outdoors and enjoys spending time with family and friends in the beautiful state of Colorado.

You will enjoy Dr. Bailey for his personal care as well as his obvious pursuit of excellence. He never stops short of providing his best for every patient and we believe this is the primary reason patients come from throughout the United States to seek care in his office.

Dr. Heather C. Leyva D.D.S.

Dr. Leyva moved to Colorado with her fiancé from New York City in July of 2020. She grew up in Santa Barbara County, California then moved to Alabama to attend Auburn University. She enjoyed an excellent college experience, especially loved college football, and graduated summa cum laude in Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Leyva moved to New York City after completing her undergraduate degree to attend dental school at Columbia University. She graduated with honors from Columbia and continued her training at a one-year general practice residency program at Brooklyn Methodist Hospital.

Dr. Leyva is experienced in whole-body dental health, emergency dentistry, oral surgery and surgical implant placement, pediatrics, and especially loves artistic restorative dentistry. She enjoys working with all ages, from infants to seniors. She has traveled to Guatemala and Costa Rica to provide free dental care to young children, and also taught a seminar on geriatric dentistry while attending Columbia. Dr. Leyva continues to perfect her trade with continuing education and completes hundreds of hours of continuing education per year. She is upbeat, warm, and treats her patients like family.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Leyva enjoys cooking gourmet meals, traveling, and exploring the great outdoors with her fiancé and their two senior dogs. She looks forward to providing you phenomenal dental care and helping you be the healthiest and most confident version of yourself!

About The Staff

One of the biggest keys to optimal results in a dental practice is an excellent staff. High turnover in any business indicates an internal problem and turnover in a professional setting should be a primary concern of every client. The staff and doctors must be an efficient team to ensure consistent, high-quality results. The majority of Dr. Bailey and Dr. Leyva’s staff have worked with them for years or even decades. Many factors go into providing patients with the very best health care, one of which is the staff - our staff consists of the finest, most caring, and highly skilled dental care technicians available in the field.

Our patients know that when they return to our practice they will be greeted by the same people they have come to know and trust through the years. Our dedicated staff shares Drs. Bailey and Leyva’s vision of care, and the Doctors are proud of the service our team provides.
