As a member of the Horizon Dental team, I want to thank you for entrusting me in caring for you and your family’s dental needs. I believe in the power of a smile, and not only want to make a difference in your smile, but also your life and overall health. Before joining the Horizon Dental team, I earned a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Brigham Young University Idaho followed by a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Creighton School of Dentistry. While reflecting upon work opportunities I was intrigued to find an organization which pursues goals in harmony with my own, an organization which primarily focuses on bridging the gap between those in the community who can afford quality care and those who cannot. I plan on contributing to the mission of Horizon Dental and Colorado Public Health throughout my career by
providing primary care within a community that has limited health care resources. The sense of satisfaction I receive through assisting those with limited access to health treatment within my community is one reason I chose to work in Salida. While my approach to dentistry is conservative, I am committed to staying current with continuing education, materials, and evidence-based procedures that will deliver the greatest benefit to all patients. When not performing dental treatments I enjoy spending time with my wife and 2 children. In addition to family time, I am passionate about fly fishing, snowboarding, and spending time outdoors and being involved with community events.
Before coming to 4 Seasons Dental, Dr. James Cantua received his training at Creighton University and
practiced dentistry in Nebraska. He is a member of the American Dental Association and the Academy of
General Dentistry. He spends considerable time to learn and master new dental techniques- if he is not
in the office helping patients he is likely at a training event preparing to bring you new procedures and
treatment! He has received the International Congress of Oral Implantologists award for excellence in
implants. He enjoys meeting new people and seeing friends of the practice every day.
Dr. James is excited to be in Colorado Springs and to treat the many wonderful patients in the area.
Recently arrived from the Midwest, he and his wife are happy to raise their family in such a beautiful,
and hospitable community. They have 2 young children, so when the office closes in the evening,
playtime at home begins! Life is sometimes crazy but very happy. It is the Cantua’s hope to contribute to
the community by providing compassionate care for all of our patients.
