Hello, and Welcome to 2thbar by Dr. B! I’m Dr. Jasper Bartolome, DDS — the “Dr. B” of 2thbar.
I’ve been a dentist for over twenty years and love taking care of my patients and helping them look and feel good. A healthy smile lets you eat well, speak well and be well inside and out. I find great personal and professional fulfillment in creating beautiful smiles that visibly improve function and aesthetics, helping you be healthier, happier and more confident. I enjoy making my patients feel comfortable and look forward to visits in my dental office.
I was born in the Philippines but raised in Ethiopia, East Africa as a missionary kid. I earned my first dental degree, Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), at Southwestern University and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2000. I also hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing that I earned in 2004. I was recognized twice by the Philippines Professional Regulation Commission for the fifth highest scores in the nation in both the dentistry and nursing licensure exams.
I moved to the USA in 2005 and worked as a registered nurse in Texas for a few years. In 2008, I was accepted into the highly competitive program for foreign-trained dentists at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine’s International Student Program. In 2010, I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree and was nominated into the national dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon whose members are in the top 20% of their graduating class.
I have practiced dentistry in Colorado ever since, first in corporate dentistry, then afterwards in community health dentistry, where I took on a leadership role as the Associate Director of Oral Health. Working in varied healthcare settings has given me a unique perspective and appreciation of dental health as an integral part of one’s overall health. 2thbar by Dr. B is a culmination of my many years of knowledge and experience, fused with my passion to create an elevated dental home. I strive to provide the highest quality care and keep abreast of the best evidence-based practices through regular continuing education classes, along with a tripartite professional membership with the American Dental Association, Colorado Dental Association, and Metro Denver Dental Society.
My husband Darryl and I met while he was in medical school and I was in dental school. We have been married since 1998, and Darryl is currently my business partner, manager and co-founder of 2thbar. You will see him greeting you in the office, putting you at ease and helping to address any of your questions or concerns.
We have one daughter, Shantel, who graduated from Tufts University in 2020 and currently lives and works on the East Coast. On our days off, we love spending time with family and friends, and you may see us out and about with our furry Lhasa Apso baby, Valentino.
Can’t wait to meet you in person and get to know you too! See you soon at 2thbar by Dr. B!
