"I am truly blessed to be an orthodontist. It allows me to live by the adage, ‘Love what you do and you won’t have to work a day in your life.’ That’s how I feel as I come into Rangewood Orthodontics each and every day."

Outside of work, Dr. Watts spends his free time with his wife Jenee and their five amazing kids. He is passionate about outdoor activities like soccer, lacrosse, and fly fishing.

They also volunteer as orthodontists for Kids in Need of Dentistry and are active in multiple schools in Colorado Springs, Fountain, Manitou Springs, Monument, Castle Rock, and Woodland Park.
"Coming to work allows me to work as an artist uncovering a beautiful, unique smile found in each one of our patients while creating new lasting relationships in my community. I believe our work brings about positive, lasting changes in the lives of our patients! Each day I get to spend time with fascinating people from a variety of backgrounds. They all have stories to tell, and we often end up sharing our stories and experiences. We become partners, working together toward the shared goal of a beautiful, healthy smile. One that will last a lifetime."
