Comprehensive Family Dental Care in Denver, CO

A healthy, beautiful smile provides a level of confidence and self-esteem that makes any situation easier, and at Gentle Smiles of Colorado, our mission is to help our patients achieve one. Our team of expert dentists and highly-trained dental specialists works closely with patients to understand their dental needs in fine detail, and we strive to craft comprehensive treatment plans that fit into any lifestyle. As a comprehensive dental practice, we're proud to offer both general, preventive dental care as well as cosmetic dentistry and periodontal treatment, and with three convenient locations in Denver, Golden, and Wheat Ridge, Colorado, we make it easy to get high-quality care. But no matter what treatment you need, it all starts with your first visit to our office. 

Your First Visit As an Adult Patient

We're always excited to welcome new patients to our practice, and whether you're moving to Denver from out of town or simply want to switch dentists, we look forward to helping you achieve a better smile. During your first visit, we'll take some time to get to know you, perform a comprehensive evaluation of your dental health, and discuss any potential treatment options that might help improve your smile. After completing some paperwork to get you into our system, our Denver dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth, mouth, bite, and smile, and we'll also take diagnostic records like x-rays and photographs to help us form a complete diagnosis. After the exam, your Wheat Ridge dentist will discuss any potential issues in your dental health, then talk over the possible next steps for treatment. Finally, we'll provide some personalized tips on how you can optimize your oral hygiene at home for a healthier, more beautiful smile in the long-term.

Your Child's First Visit to the Dentist

As a family dental practice serving Wheat Ridge, Denver, and Golden, we often have the pleasure of welcoming children into our practice. In keeping with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists, we ask parents to bring children in for an initial appointment around the age of 1. This may seem early, but that's intentional: the best way to foster the development of a healthy smile is through early, regular preventive care. 

During your child's first appointment, we likely won't do much in terms of actual dental treatment. Instead, the first visit is a chance for us to get to know each other, to get your child more accustomed to the dentist's office, and for your Golden dentist to examine your child's mouth to ensure dental development is progressing as normal. After the examination, we'll provide instructions for how best to care for your child's teeth at home. 

What to Bring to Your First Dentist's Visit

We strive to make the treatment process convenient for our patients, and we understand that your time is valuable. To that end, ask our new patients to bring a few things to their first appointment in order to expedite the process and ensure you get as much time as possible with your dentist. To help your first visit go off without a hitch, please bring the following with you to our office:

  • Any insurance or health information forms
  • Your dental insurance card (if you have one)
  • Any panoramic x-rays taken within 6 months of the appointment
