Dr. Kevin Pass, DDS
Dr Kevin Pass graduated with a dental degree at the age of 23 from the University of Manchester, England, in 1977. He established four new dental offices in the UK. Subsequently, in the early 1980’s, Dr Kevin experienced dental practice in Perth, Australia. In 1984 he moved with his family to Cape Town, South Africa, to escape the UK climate and to practice outside of a socialized medical system. While in South Africa, Kevin became involved with teaching dentists and technicians the techniques involved with using porcelain veneers and resins to restore the beauty and function of patient’s teeth. He gave continuing education programs throughout South Africa including at the Universities of Witwatersrand, Stellenbosch and Pretoria.
Upon his return to the UK, Kevin continued to lecture and teach across Europe. He was invited to speak in Sweden, Ireland, Greece, France, Ireland, Italy, Holland and throughout the UK. Eventually, a US dental company sponsored Kevin’s move to the USA in 1992.
Kevin was appointed an Assistant Professor at the University of Missouri, Kansas City where he taught Operative Dentistry. He was also awarded a DDS from UMKC in 1996. Concurrently, Kevin was on the faculty of University Texas Health Science Center Dental School in San Antonio, as a member of the Aesthetic Dentistry Department, where he conducted research into dental adhesives. He was a member of the International Association for Dental Research on Cosmetic Dentistry.
In 1997 Kevin returned to full time practice specializing in restoring complex restorative problems and smiles. He also took many hours of continuing education and was one of the first general practitioners to offer implant placement and restoration. Kevin built up a large dental office in Overland Park, Kansas City.
Richard Pass, his son, practiced with him for two years before relocating to Colorado and starting a family. Subsequently, Kevin and his wife decided to move to Fort Collins to be close to their family and grandchildren. Kevin’s daughter, Catherine, is now a practicing dentist in St. Louis, Missouri. His other son, William, has a degree in neurobiology and just finished veterinary school in 2016.
