About Us

At The Dental Center at Thornton Plaza, it is our goal to help each of our patients to achieve their optimal oral health through the highest quality dental care in a warm and caring environment. It's no different than what we've done for the last 33 years.

Highest Quality Dental Care

Our doctors, hygienists, and dental assistants go beyond being fully licensed and certified for their respective roles in caring for our patients. We each have a commitment to provide the best care for each of our patients. All of us attend continuing dental education on a regular basis and we participate in the 5280 Study Club. We have the latest in technical capacity, including an intraoral video system to assist in the diagnostic process and to show you some of your dental conditions. We pride ourselves in staying abreast of the latest in dental technology and equipment. As well, our sterilization and infection control systems are completely compliant with all OSHA and American Dental Association recommendations.

Flexibile and Available

Our office is open over 70 hours a week and a doctor is on call through our answering service outside of our office hours. It is our goal to be here when you need us.

Our office hours are:

Monday-Thursday: 8am-8pm
Fridays: 8am-5pm
Saturdays: 8am-1pm
Appointments may be made by calling: 303.457.1513

Our policy is to attempt to see patients within 24 hours if there is severe pain and swelling. Please call the office as soon as you are aware of a problem. It is almost always easier and less expensive to treat a dental problem early. Dental disease will only get worse if left untreated. Because there is an after-hours fee associated with coming in when the office is not open, as well as a walk-in fee if you do not have a scheduled appointment, we would encourage you to call during business hours as soon as you notice a problem.

Warm and Caring

We strive to provide a warm and caring environment with a level of care, courtesy and attentiveness that we would provide to members of our own family. We recognize that receiving dental care can be a stressful experience for some, and we do all that we can to provide you with a comfortable setting to receive your care. Nitrous Oxide (also called laughing gas) is available for those who are particularly anxious. We also provide video monitors and earphones in all our rooms so that you can watch the local news or TV programs, your favorite movie video, or CD interactional dental educational videos describing the procedure you will be experiencing on the day of your appointment or to consider alternative treatment options. In all cases, your comfort is one of our foremost concerns.

Leading our patients to optimal health is our ultimate goal. This phrase reminds us that without your help, we can accomplish very little; but working together, we can help you be not only pain free, but pleased and self assured with your smile.

Dental Insurance Plans

We accept most insurance programs that allow you to choose the dentist of your choice. These are usually called traditional or indemnity insurance plans, and offer you the most freedom in choosing your dentist. Please bring your dental insurance card with you. If a card is not available, then bring a completed insurance form with you in order to submit your dental visit to your insurance company. We can also provide a payment plan to assist you with your portion that is not covered by your insurance.
