Doctors and Staff

Harald Joesaar, DDS       

Dr Joesaar is a Colorado native and Boulder Resident of 23 years.    He grew up in the mountains around Central city and graduated from Gilpin county High School.    He then attended Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood springs, getting a degree in Graphic Arts;.  Then Metropolitan State University for a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology.   He worked for several years in various fields but wasn’t satisfied.    However, on one particular night in December he had an epiphany and knew that dentistry was his calling.   He realized that the profession combined all the things that he loves:  Helping people, sculpture, science, and working with his hands.   He enrolled at the University of Colorado to finish his Biology degree, then his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2002.


LIving in Boulder, Dr Joesaar bought a practice in Arvada which grew and thrived for the next nine years.   He also got married and had babies.   As their lives expanded, Dr Joesaar understood that he needed to leave the Arvada practice and come back to Boulder.    It was during this period that Dr Joesaar and Dr Barnes met.    It took several years but they both understood that this could be an ideal match.   Dr Barnes could practice in his specialty fields, and Dr Joesaar could rejoin his Boulder community.    They are very excited to create this new Gunbarrel practice that will bring their patients expanded services and options!   Stay tuned in the months ahead as you see this in action!
