Practice history Dr. and Mrs. Krieger had a dental practice for 4 years in Brush, Colorado. In 1983, they moved to Elizabeth to be closer to family. (Mrs. Krieger’s aunt and uncle Janet and Nelson Waterworth were fixtures in the Elbert Post Office and agricultural community for many years.) They bought the building from Dr. Mike Iacoboni who began the dental office in 1977.
Teaching and writing experience One of the reasons Dr. Krieger moved closer to Denver was to teach at the University of Colorado Dental School. He taught part-time in the 1980’s for five years in the TEAM clinic, while also working his practice. At the same time, he became involved in freelance writing and radio work. For many years, he was a writer for “The Journal of the Colorado Dental Association. Dr. Krieger has written articles for “The Pueblo Chieftain” and “The Posse of Denver Westerners”. He also has articles in two Westerners’ book publications – “The Brand Book”.
Dr. Krieger worked with Tom Noel and G. Brown to author a souvenir book for the Red Rocks Ampitheater in 2004 – “From Dinosaurs to Rock and Roll”. He also contributed to Noel’s 2005 book “Sacred Stones”, about Red Rocks as well.
Interests Dr. Krieger is a proud booster of all things Colorado! He is particularly passionate about music. Known affectionately as Colorado’s own “Rock and Roll Dentist”, Dr. Krieger was the historian and founding board member of the Colorado Music Hall of Fame. He DJ’d school dances in the 1980’s and has performed vocal and guitar solos at various functions around the state, including the town of Elizabeth. He has written for the “Music Hound” book series, the Colorado Historical Society and music collecting publications such as “Discoveries” and “Goldmine”. Most current musical writings by Dr. Krieger are on Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Poco, Firefall and the Beatles, as well as CD reviews.
Dr. Krieger did several radio guest spots with music critic G. Brown. This culminated in the late 1990’s in a Saturday evening show called “Rock Talk”, on KHOW with G. Brown and the Heavy Man Pat Porter. He hosted an internet Saturday oldies show called GoGaGa.com (no longer in existence). He made many guest appearances on G. Brown’s 102.3 KCUV show and Archer’s Breakfast with the Beatles on 99.5 The Mountain.

Meagan Mishler – Dental Assistant
We are so fortunate, in our many years of private practice, that we continue to have loyal and skilled people working in our office, who also feel like a member of the family. Meagan Mishler began her on-the-job training in our office summer 2013, where her knowledge and skills developed rapidly, due to her can-do positive attitude. She came to the town of Elizabeth two year ago, when she met her “Prince Charming”. As a Colorado native, Meagan grew up in Littleton. She excelled in her academic skills, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2006 from Collegiate Academy. Meagan’s other interests and skills include her years playing soccer on the Nike team, and earning gold medals in the culinary arts. Meagan feel very blessed to be a member of the dental office team, and is thankful for the opportunity to work with Dr. Krieger and his wonderful wife Aimee in the beautiful town of Elizabeth.
Our dental building, located at 187 E. Kiowa Avenue, was renovated from an old house built in 1920. At one time, it was the residence of Dr. Bennett MD and was also home to the Mauldin family. In 1977, Dr. Mike Iacoboni set up his dental practice in the house. Krieger Family Dentistry purchased the building from him in 1983 and have kept its quaint look. This means it’s more roomy than modern dental offices and also has a cozy, homey look and feel. We can only guess how old the massive trees and front hedges are! Aimee Krieger is an avid gardener and enjoys planting flowers in front of the building every spring.
