Cathy A. Fermelia, DDS

For Dr. Cathy Fermelia, dentistry is more than just treating teeth; it’s about treating patients like family. Her passion for dentistry and for helping others is something that has driven Dr. Fermelia to giving her patients first-class care in every way.

Dr. Fermelia graduated from Creighton University in 1981 with a degree in mathematics, and then earned her dental degree from Creighton University School of Dentistry in 1985. After graduating, she worked at the Memorial Hospital, Children’s Hospital, Veterans Administration Hospital, and a rehabilitation center at Oklahoma Medical Center. From her time at the Oklahoma Medical Center, Dr. Fermelia is qualified and experienced in treating young children and elderly patients. Since her graduation and residency, Dr. Fermelia has continued her education by attending continuing education courses and receiving training in endodontics, orthodontics, implants, and dental laser use.

In 1991, she bought her practice in Lakewood, Colorado, and has been the recipient of the Spectrum Award for Customer Service, has won the Award from North America Center for Dentistry, and has been named one of America’s Best Dentists. Dr. Fermelia is also a member of the American Dental Association, the Colorado Dental Association, and the Metro Denver Dental Society.

Dr. Fermelia has been married to her husband since 1986. She and her husband have two adult children, a son in engineering and a daughter in medicine. In her spare time, Dr. Fermelia enjoys running, skiing, reading, doing crossword puzzles, and learning trivia. She and her husband also enjoy taking yearly motorcycle trips together.

Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Dr. Hannah Chase moved to Colorado Springs midway through high school. After graduating in the Springs, Dr. Chase headed to the Midwest to earn her Bachelor of Science in Microbiology, with minors in Business and Music from The Ohio State University.
