Chelse Waddell, DDS

Dr. Chelse

Dr. Chelse is proud to be creating beautiful, healthy smiles in our community!

Dr. Chelse grew up in Charleston, West Virginia—the “big city” for West Virginia, but small by anyone else’s standard. She attended West Virginia University in Morgantown and received her B.S. in Biology before then attending the West Virginia University School of Dentistry. Next, Dr. Chelse moved to Grand Junction in 2017 to complete a residency for Advanced Education in General Dentistry through NYU Langone at the Marillac Clinic.

Dr. Chelse first fell in love with Grand Junction while traveling through Colorado and Utah. She and her husband Dayton just love the area, the diversity of the landscape, and everything Grand Junction has to offer. They have made it their home ever since.

Outside of the office, Dr. Chelse enjoys hiking, camping, kayaking, knitting, crocheting, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and gardening. She can frequently be found adventuring with Dayton and their beloved dogs: a German Shepard named Ruger and a Mini Australian Shepherd named Mesa.
