Dr. Lawrence Musanje | Bright Star Kids Dentistry

Dr. Lawrence Musanje

Born and raised in Uganda, Dr. Lawrence Musanje is a true man of letters! Those letters include DDS, PHD and DDS again. After his initial education at the Wuhan University in China, where he earned his first Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (DDS), Dr. Musanje continued his education earning a PhD in dental filling materials from the University of Hong Kong. He then went on to do five years of research and teaching as a post-doctoral fellow at Oregon Health and Science University. He then furthered his education at The University of Colorado, School of Dental Medicine where he was awarded another DDS degree. Dr. Lawrence, as he is called by both patients and parents, has been well prepared to care for children here in Colorado. He and his wife, Jennifer, have two children (Angelica, age 13 and Judith, age 15) and as a family they enjoy tennis, jogging, horseback riding and hiking.

Dr. Musanje’s kind, gentle demeanor and years of dental training create a welcoming environment for first time patients and regular visitors here in the office. He knows that each child is a unique and special bright star, and he takes the time to work with them to overcome dental anxiety.
