Did you know?
Hakala Family Dentistry was started in 1962 by Dr. Joe Hakala, Dr. Kate Hakala’s father. He and his wife, Jane, have been married for 54 years and have 6 children and 6 grandchildren. Dr. Joe has been a woodcarver longer than he has been a dentist and has carved all of the figurines and hummingbirds in our waiting room. That’s why the logo for Hakala Family Dentistry is a hummingbird!
Dr. Kate is a member of the American Dental Association, Colorado Dental Association, and Metro Denver Dental Society.
