In 2011, 5280 magazine named Dr. Colin Gibson one of Denver’s top dentists. Given the breadth of Dr. Gibson’s orthodontic services, this may come as no surprise to his patients. In addition to fitting kids, teens, and adults with traditional braces, he offers subtler options, such as clear ceramic braces, for patients who are sensitive about their developing smiles. He also straightens teeth with a series of nearly invisible clear plastic aligners from Invisalign and ClearCorrect. For patients who are concerned about the duration of orthodontic treatments, Dr. Gibson offers rapid orthodontic techniques such as short-term braces, which boast a higher mouth-adjusting success rate than taunting Mike Tyson.
At Dr. Jiwon Jeff Jung's office, clients can relax before appointments in a luxuriously outfitted reception area. Kids can keep themselves occupied with toys and games as adults enjoy beverages from the coffee kiosk. Dr. Jung's passion for emerging dental technologies and techniques—he takes continuing-education classes—means that he can ensure current, comfortable procedures for his patients, whether they're seeking general, surgical, or cosmetic dentistry services, including implants and Invisalign. For extra-jittery patients, minimal conscious sedation and laughing gas are also available.
Led by Dr. Jesse Jenkins, Five Parks Dental provides patients with a comfortable environment and expert care to keep tooth-related troubles at bay. Thoroughly check out your chompers with a full set of digital x-rays, which can help reveal any bone loss, tumors, or other dental dilemmas that may be masquerading as reclusive concert pianists on a gum-line retreat. A comprehensive examination applies the same scrutiny to other concerns, keeping mouth rocks polished and suitable for showing to strangers with a complete session of tartar-evicting cleaning and polishing. The doctor will also sniff out symptoms of TMJ, head and neck cancer, and periodontal predicaments with the tenacity of a three-nosed bloodhound. During the visit, patients can gaze up at an overhead television to watch a movie or don headphones to distract ears from demanding their own gentle cleaning.
During more than 25 years in practice, Dr. Robert Denny has been fixing up worn-out smiles while gaining experience in most every niche of dentistry along the way. Upon graduating from the University of Texas, Dr. Denny received a scholarship to study at the highly respected University of Pennsylvania School of Dentistry. After serving in the Navy Dental Corps during Vietnam and completing a stint as an dental instructor in Illinois, Dr. Denny returned to Denver, where he has been in private practice ever since. Since opening his first office in 1984, the former president of the Metropolitan Denver Dental Society has grown his practice to two different locations. He's also expanded his service menu to encompass treatments that range from general dentistry and cosmetic care to orthodontics.
At Advanced Dental Arts, Dr. Randy Simon wants to know each patient "as a person, not a set of teeth." Inside his office, warm lighting and comfortable chairs dispel patients' worries about a cold, clinical atmosphere full of ghosts holding tiny mirrors. Over the past two decades, Dr. Simon has developed his own dental philosophy he believes in listening closely during every patient's visit, keeping up to date by studying dental literature and attending continuing-education classes, and creating dentist-patient relationships that last for years.
