Dr. Leanne Nichols
Dr. Nichols truly enjoys the practice of dentistry and providing comprehensive care to her patients in order to help them achieve optimal dental health.

Dr. Nichols is originally from Honolulu, HI. Her career in dentistry started at a very young age – she worked as an assistant in her father’s periodontal practice at 14 years old. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at the University of Colorado – Boulder in 2006 with a pre-med emphasis. Then, she worked as an assistant in Westminster for a general dentist while applying to dental school, realizing her love of general dentistry. She pursued her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, graduating in 2013. After school, she accepted into a prestigious General Practice Residency at the University of Colorado, which was a strenuous and intense year of post-graduate education. This is where she first connected with Dr. Glamm and Dr. Walker.
Dr. Nichols practiced for four years at a general practice in Thornton. She joined Pearl Dentistry as an Associate in August of 2017 and couldn’t be happier to be here. During her education and career, she has received awards from the American Association of Public Health Dentistry and the American College of Prosthodontists. She was also awarded the Highest Producing Resident award during her General Practice Residency for completing the most dental cases that any first-year resident had done in the program up to that point.
Outside of the office, Dr. Nichols is married to a Colorado native. Her husband Jason manages his family’s auto glass business. She spends her free time doing Yoga and Pilates, hiking, skiing, standup paddle boarding, baking, and cooking healthy foods for her family.
