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.
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.
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.
