Dr. Richard Harvey
Dr. Rick Harvey stumbled upon the dental field after taking a skills assessment in college. In his words, “the more I observed dentists in my hometown, the more I fell in love with the profession. I was amazed by the dentists’ ability to help make a difficult situation more pleasant for the patient.”
Dr. Harvey earned a dual degree from Utah State University in 1999, majoring in spanish and liberal arts & sciences. He was then awarded the US Navy’s Health Professions Scholarship and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Ohio State University College of Dentistry. He’s still a Buckeye through and through. Dr. Harvey began his career in 2003 and spent over 4 years serving the men and women of the US military who were stationed in California and aboard the USS New Orleans.
He moved from California to Colorado and started working at Summit Family Dentistry. The office’s philosophy of going above and beyond for each patient aligned perfectly with Dr. Harvey’s standards and he eventually purchased the practice. His desire to give back led him to become a host office for Dentistry from the Heart – a free community dentistry day. Summit Family Dentistry has hosted this event for the last seven years and donates over $70,000 in free dental treatment annually.
Dr. Harvey and his wife Crista stay busy with their four children and are active in their church. When he has free time he enjoys listening to music, going to the theater, and playing or watching basketball. Dr. Harvey has been nationally recognized for his accomplishments in dentistry and as a small business owner.

Dr. Jill Biles has dentistry in her blood. Her great-grandfather, great-uncle, uncle, and three cousins are all dentists! She attended the University of Minnesota dental school and earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2006. She also holds an advanced certification in Nutrition Science.
Dr. Biles says the best part of being a dentist is helping people in a way that improves their health and their self-confidence. She has a heart for giving back and volunteers doing dental screenings at elementary schools, health fairs, and through the Summit sponsored, Dentistry from the Heart event. She was drawn to Summit Family Dentistry by the team’s genuine focus on caring for the patients. A native Iowan, Dr. Biles was raised to always be kind to others, and her kindness shows in everything she does. Summit patients adore her, “put you at ease” demeanor and professionalism.
Dr. Biles and her husband, Brad, have two children and two dogs. She loves spending time hiking, riding bikes, and park hopping with the family. She also enjoys scrapbooking and watching movies at home.

Dr. Autumn Gray
Dr. Autumn Gray found her love for Dentistry in a very unique way! After taking a jewelry making class in high school, she attended a pre-dental day at the dental school in college, and while touring the dental lab, realized that a lot of the same instruments and methods used to make jewelry are also used in dentistry! She loves that Dentistry is a fantastic blend of art and science, and also gives her the opportunity to really give back and help people in a unique way. Dr. Gray grew up in a small town near Green Bay and attended college at Ohio State University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology and Spanish. She then attended Marquette University School of Dentistry where she earned her degree in Doctor of Dental Surgery.
She is passionate about helping others on their journey to great oral health and beautiful smiles while helping them feel comfortable and well-cared for throughout the process. Dr. Gray is a very open, warm and welcoming Dentist that makes patients feel comfortable.She is able to talk to anyone, which is one of the many reasons why we love having her on the Summit Family Dentistry team. In her free time, one may find her hiking, camping, reading, kayaking, gardening, or painting.

Rose has been a Hygienist for 39 years! Shortly after getting her Associate of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from North Dakota State College of Science, she moved from North Dakota to Colorado and has been cleaning teeth and educating patients about oral health! She also has a certificate from the OSAP-DALE Foundation Dental Infection Prevention and Control Certificate Program.
In high school, Rose “shadowed” a Dental Hygienist for an advanced biology class who made quite an impression on her, which is why Rose went into the dental field!
