Welcome Dr. Lai


Dr. Pearl is a Colorado native and a certified periodontist. She graduated from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine in 2009 and trained at the Mayo Clinic for her periodontics residency and received her masters in science at the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in 2014. Dr. Pearl strives to provide patients with the most modern and comfortable treatment choices through technology and innovation. She provides procedures such as laser gum surgery known as LANAP, pinhole gum rejuvenation, bone grafts, and dental implants among other dental treatments. As a practicing periodontist Dr. Pearl enjoys her relationships with her patients and her colleagues as much as the care she provides.

Her parents are from Taiwan and with their eastern culture had a different perspective on health and medicine. Growing up her family sought natural remedies from Chinese medicine that addressed the root of the underlying condition rather than symptoms alone. Their wisdom has deeply influenced her outlook on life and she understands health to include every part of the body, mind and spirit.

When it comes to her own health and wellness Dr. Pearl will research and find natural treatments whenever she can, which she has often found to be more effective with little to no side effects. She now makes her own kombucha and kefir.

She believes there is a place for both Eastern and Western medicine. The importance is the understanding that all systems are connected and to help the person as a unique individual and as a whole while respecting the person's beliefs.

Dr. Pearl and her husband enjoy mountain biking, camping and spending time with their pets. They have chickens, two cats, a dog, and an aquarium. It is always interesting at their house!
