Not many artists can call themselves dentists, but dentist Steven Weinstein can certainly call himself an artist. It was Dr. Weinstein’s passion and talent for sculpture that led him into the field of cosmetic dentistry, where his artwork is now put on display in the mouths of his many satisfied patients. Inside his boutique-style office, clients can enjoy any number of creature comforts, from massage chairs and virtual movie glasses to the complimentary paraffin hand treatments included with every service. Dr. Weinstein’s nationally recognized advancements in dentistry are reflected in the office’s diverse cosmetic and restorative solutions, which include basic preventive care, crowns, veneers, and teeth-whitening treatments for those prone to drinking from ink pots.
Since his father was a WWII naval doctor and small-town surgeon, Dr. Lawrence Kuljis was introduced to the medical profession at a young age. He drew inspiration from his dad’s thoughtful care of friends and neighbors, enrolling in school at Marquette University and eventually building a successful career in the dental arts. Today, Dr. Kuljis returns the favor by caring for his still-active 98-year-old father and continuing the family tradition of healing through preventive care and dental procedures.
Ably led by office manager Lina—who happens to be Dr. Kuljis’ wife—the friendly staff of qualified hygienists and dental assistants pride themselves on creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Guests relax in the sunny, spacious lounge before retiring to the comfort of a treatment room with breathtaking views of the area skyline and chairside computer terminals for easy access to records and saved Minesweeper games. Dr. Kuljis and his team safeguard long-term oral health with regular checkups and digital oral x-rays and perform smile makeovers with cosmetic treatments, crowns, veneers, and bridges. Patients may also opt for a complimentary hand massage during visits to help them relax during their service.
Dr. Bryan Jon Miller and his team of enamel experts at Meridian Dental Care stave off oral antagonists and maintain sterling smiles through extensive dental diagnostics. A new-patient exam and oral screening commences the visit, evaluating bite and gum health and screening for oral cancer and TMJ. A thorough teeth cleaning then rids gum stones of tartar, plaque, and Lego buildup, before digital panoramic and bitewing X-rays expose potential maladies naked to the human eye. Meridian’s team also helps exorcise the ghosts of espressos past by doling out Whitening for Life take-home treatment kits. During the whitening process, clients don custom-fitted trays filled with a special, tooth-blanching formula for a few hours each day. Patients receive two tubes of the bleaching solution upon delivery of their trays, and can receive two additional tubes at no charge when they return for recommended checkups (additional visits not included in today's deal). Operating out of an attractive and relaxing office, Meridian's helpful staff remains on hand to answer any questions regarding dental care or petitioning the Tooth Fairy for a rate increase.
Dr. James Kinkade?a third-generation dentist and sixth-generation Coloradan?and his team work together to protect their patients' oral health by using cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment technology. Digital x-rays and a proprietary scanning device allow the staff to check for signs of decay or disease and the ultrasonic scalers efficiently remove plaque.
The specialists at Kinkade Dental Studio can help repair damage with porcelain crowns or veneers, and the team also specializes in dental bonding, which uses tooth-colored composite resin to conceal chips or cracks while removing as little of the existing tooth as possible. Dental implants, root-canal therapy, and holographic fillings are a few of the more complex procedures that Dr. Kinkade can take when necessary. However, the practice always emphasizes the importance of preventative care so that troublesome teeth don't develop complicated conditions or violent coups against each other.
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.
