Dr. Brik along with his amazing wife Ashley, and their three children: Trey, Emery, and Jackson will be making Colorado Springs their new home.

They are natives of Mesa, Arizona and Dr. Brik comes from a family of dentists. He received his Bachelor of Science from Brigham Young University. He then completed dental school at the University of Southern California. The ensuing FIVE years, Dr. Brik was formally trained in both orthodontics and pediatric dentistry.

Oahu, Hawaii was the headquarters for his 2-year pediatric dental residency at Lutheran Medical Center.

This unique program had him traveling from Oahu to Maui to the Big Island to provide dental care to some of the most underserved children in the country.

He then moved 5,000 miles to Buffalo, New York to complete a 3-year residency in orthodontics at the University of Buffalo. He will be graduating June 2016 with his Master’s of Science, and specialty Certificate in Orthodontics.

In order to further his pediatric dental abilities, while in orthodontic residency, Dr. Brik has been working part-time in private practice at Just 4 Me Pediatric Dentistry in Buffalo NY.

He and Ashley have enjoyed immersing their family in every community they have lived. In Los Angeles,
they became frequent fliers of Disneyland, beach trips, and attending popular television shows in Hollywood. They welcomed their first two children, Trey and Emery, during dental school with Emery being born the week of graduation. For the next couple of years, they enjoyed exploring the culture and beauty of Hawaii. Most recently, the Nielsen’s have been loving their east coast experience. They have been able to take advantage of DC, NYC, Boston, Adirondack Mountain Range, Philadelphia and others. In 2014 they welcomed Jackson, their “Buffalo Baby” into the family.
