Arielle Garfinkle, DMD

Dr. Ari

Dr. Ari brings with her experience from all corners of the dental world to Ruby Canyon Dental! She is originally from Philadelphia, PA and attended Temple University Dental School where she graduated in 2016. In addition to being the second busiest dental school in the country, her time at Temple also afforded her the opportunity to volunteer both locally in the community and abroad in the Dominican Republic.

After graduation she and her husband moved to the Western Slope where she completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at Marillac Health. Since then she has worked in private practice here in Grand Junction, as well as doing teledental work for patients across the state.

Dr. Ari has undergone extensive post-graduate training in cosmetic dentistry through the Esthetic Continuum at UCLA and Beverly Hills Institute of Dental Esthetics. She has also received her fellowship in dental implantology from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists as well as from the American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics. She is continuously expanding her skills and attending new courses with a focus on orthodontia and pediatric sleep related breathing disorders.

Dr. Ari very much values the dentist-patient relationship and is dedicated to listening closely to every patient so as to best determine the most comprehensive solutions for their specific dental needs. Dr. Ari recently welcomed her first child in May of 2020, and she enjoys spending time outside with her family and pets as well as cooking, painting, and playing softball.
