Our practice is working together to realize a shared vision of uncompromising excellence in dentistry. To fulfill this mission, we are committed to:
Dr. Nibal Zrik suffered a toothache as a child and needed an emergency root canal. Ever since the dentist took him out of pain, Dr. Z knew dentistry was his calling in life, and he wanted to be able to provide this wonderful service for others. Dr. Zrik received his Bachelor of Science in Biology and Chemistry, and his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Virginia Commonwealth University. He joined us at Artistic & Family Dental when Dr. Revoir was unable to return to dentistry. He has been a wonderful addition to our team, with exceptional skills at extractions, implants and restorative procedures. Dentistry seems to run in Dr. Z’s family because his wife, brother, and sister are dentists as well.
Dr. Zrik and his wife, Dr. Pria Chang, moved here recently to enjoy our Colorado lifestyle. Dr. Z is an avid skier, enjoys dirt biking, and is recently getting into fly fishing (mostly at the behest of his Father in Law- but he is enjoying it!).When we asked Dr. Zrik’s thoughts on being a dentist, he states …”I’m passionate about what I do and pride myself on making patients feel comfortable, respected, and appreciated”
Dr. Pria Chang completed her undergraduate degree at James Madison University, in Harrisonburg, VA and was the first student to gain an internship during this time with Stanford Research. Following her graduation, she worked in a genetics lab at Howard Hughes Medical Institute. After a few years with the lab, she realized although she enjoyed research, she hadn’t quite reached her professional calling. Dr. Chang decided to enroll into dental school, and earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (DDS) from Virginia Commonwealth University. During her time as a dental student, she excelled in endodontics and was selected to perform complicated root canal cases for not only her patients, but also her classmate’s patients as well. This is an honor that has carried over into her commitment of successful treatment of her patients.
Following graduation, Dr. Chang attended a General Practice Residency at Hunter Holmes McGuire Veterans Hospital, where she was able to advance her knowledge and skill set in the fields of prosthodontics (dentures, partial dentures, crowns and bridges), periodontics (bone and gum surgery) and oral surgery (extractions and implants). During the first year of the COVID pandemic, she remained in the hospital and had the honor of performing emergency treatment such as root canals and extractions, for the veterans who were most vulnerable and required care. Following her work with the Veterans, Dr. Chang worked for a family practice in Fredericksburg, Virginia until relocating to Colorado.
When we asked Dr. Chang’s thoughts on being a dentist, her reply was simple… “Being a dentist is a dream come true and I’m thankful to be able to do what I love, every day! It’s an honor to work with each and every patient who entrusts me with their care.”
Dr. Wilk was the proud owner of Artistic & Family Dental from 1989 until 2022. Today he remains in the clinic maintaining the Denver Sleep Apnea Center, where he focuses on the management of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea through the use of oral appliance therapy- an effective alternate treatment for patients who prefer it to CPAP.
He is triple board-certified in the dental treatment of sleep apnea as a Diplomate of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, American Sleep and Breathing Academy, and the American Board of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine. He also provides treatment for patients who have craniofacial pain and/or TMJ pain. If you suffer from TMJ pain, craniofacial pain, or are interested in an alternative to CPAP, give us a call and request Dr. Wilk!

What Our Patients Say...
I love this practice! Prior to visiting Artistic, it had been a very long time since I had been to the dentist. Everyone here is extremely kind and welcoming. I felt safe and the providers proved to be amazing. My exam was very quick and efficient. I had a wisdom teeth extraction that went very well and also extremely efficient. Could not be happier
The best dental practice I have ever gone to. The reception desk ladies are so sweet, and they ACTUALLY work with you on payments, unlike most places that claim they do. Doctor Pria Chang did my root canal, and she was so calm and gentle, I almost fell asleep. Her husband (who is also a dentist there) is also very kind. I will definitely continue being seen here on the journey to fix my teeth, not to mention I will also be bringing my daughters here.
Was super great! Very satisfied with the cleaning and went well. Only have it one less star because it dad take around and hour and a half which was much longer than I was expecting. But maybe that’s just a sign that they took their time to do a good and thorough job!
They are a friendly & knowledgeable staff who keep track of you as a patient in their practice. They are also good at handling emergency issues like when a crown falls out. Good choice.
Very pleasant staff. They seemed to genuinely care more about educating and helping my dental hygiene more than profit. Definitely enjoyed my visit
I loved my visit pria Chang did such an amazing job for my root canel. She was kind and talkative and knowledgeable and it didn’t hurt at all.
