Meet Dr. Chad Cattron

Dr. Chad is a fun-loving guy who grew up in Kalispell, where he wrestled and graduated from Flathead High School. He did his undergrad at FVCC and the University of Montana, later attending dental school at the University of Minnesota. He completed his pediatric dental residency among the Ozarks in Springfield, Missouri. When Dr. Chad is away from the office, he loves playing in the mountains of his hometown in Montana. His favorite things to do are wake/snowboard, spending time with his wife and three kids, playing catch with their two dogs(sometimes cats,too) and quoting movies!

Dr. Chad enjoys all kids-including fur kids! We know the dentist can be a scary place, but that’s why Dr. Chad and his buddy, Burr, are opening up a dental clinic where kids can always be smiling. Everything is so much more fun when we show off our grin!

After being away from the valley for school, Dr. Chad is thrilled to be back and hopes to not just see you in the office, but in the lakes, rivers and trails around! If you spot him, be sure to say hi!

Our Office

Glacier Grins is a pediatric dental office that is specially geared toward serving children. From a kind and kid-centered staff, to an office specially built for a positive sensory experience, Dr. Chad has made every effort to create an atmosphere conducive to a child’s overall health. We, at Glacier Grins, know that building a dental home where a kid’s smile grows big reaps benefits in their life far beyond a few teeth. It brings confidence, trust, and an integrated approach to dental health.
