The dentists at Boulder Dental Center, Littleton Dental, and Flatirons Dental Center, some of whom are faculty members at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, obviously care for their patients. They use digital x-rays, which administer less potentially harmful radiation, laughing gas to relax anxious patients, and a computer-controlled anesthetic-injection system for diminished discomfort.
But what sets the dentists at these two clinics apart is the fact that they also care about those other than their patients. The dentists have lent their skills to the less fortunate, volunteering for mission trips to rural Tennessee, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic, as well as a t the 2011 Colorado Mission of Mercy, a two-day event that provided free dental care to more than 1,300 people.
Offering prompt and personalized service, Dr. Trent Redfearn and his staff of mouth ivory ticklers help build sterling and healthy smiles with an array of cosmetic- and family-dental services. Customizing each cleaning to the patient’s periodontal health, Redfearn’s dental hygienists use medicated gels and prescription mouth rinses as they bristle bicuspids free of stains and tartar-tagged graffiti. Dr. Redfearn also leads each guest through a comprehensive oral evaluation, which includes an oral-cancer screening and diagnostic photos. Teeth will receive a flattering photo shoot with a full-mouth series of digital x-rays that accurately diagnose any concerns while using less radiation than traditional x-rays. Open Monday–Thursday, Redfearn Family Dental may also levy additional costs for dental cleanings if periodontal issues or adamantium fillings are present.
Hampden and SouthPark's experienced dentists protect pearly whites with a preventative course of care that cleans and checks for nascent cavities. Treatment begins with a comprehensive exam, during which a tooth detective ducks into molar back alleys to search for signs of oral cancer and gum disease. An advanced machine then snaps a series of high-quality bitewing and intraoral x-rays to reveal tooth decay, abnormalities, and coins tucked away under tongues for future magic tricks. A full cleaning refurbishes all corners of the mouth, removing plaque and tartar, and delivering eviction notices to half-chewed stowaways. Patients impressed with the gentle and attentive care can take $100 off their next dental treatments, including cosmetic dentistry, implants and orthodontics.
Nestled in Littleton’s Old Town, Old Town Dental is a perfect match for its historic surroundings. The practice welcomed its first patient more than four decades ago, and it has maintained its ties to the local community even as its technologies have moved forward with the times. This delicate balance between old fashioned and cutting edge can be attributed to Dr. Shawn Maloy, whose father founded the practice, and Dr. Michael Miller. The pair embraces new technologies in their field, using digital x-rays to reduce radiation exposure, intraoral cameras to allow for more in-depth examinations, and Zoom! whitening treatments to help teeth shine like holiday lights dipped in glow-in-the-dark paint.
Although Dr. Leo T. Leins of Lone Tree Dental Associates is truly a family dentist, his skills aren't limited to doing fillings and explaining why you should never brush with chocolate syrup. He has trained extensively throughout his 25-year career during continuing-education courses, specializing in areas such as implantology, orthodontics, and cosmetic techniques. In addition to keeping himself up to date, he has outfitted his office with the most modern tools, such as tooth-colored fillings and panoramic x-ray equipment.
Dr. Terry L. Wostrel and his team act as stalwart guardians against the onslaught of tooth decay, oral cancer, and other maladies from the offices of Rocky View Dental Care. The appointment, which takes around one hour for children, two hours for adults, or an entire day for hydras, begins with a visual inspection. Digital x-rays then peer into the pulpy depths, assessing underlying health while using 75% less radiation than traditional x-rays. Finally, the dental technician clears out settlements of plaque and tartar, leaving smiles as shiny as the sun's vanity mirror.
