Arvada

I took my daughter here based on a referral from my hood friend, the kind of friend you would always listen to bc she always researches so well and has a solid gut instinct for good people) for a third opinion on her fractured front grown up tooth after being told by a hygienist friend AND her regular dentist that nothing could be done given her age and the specific fracture. Everyone at this office was wonderful, so positive and up for the challenge. We are thrilled to have found them.
Dr. Ryan is amazing! Extremely diligent in his work and makes the patient very calm. Makes sure you feel no pain or discomfort and if you do he makes sure that is the only time. The entire staff are very personable and caring. Absolutely the best dentist and office I have been to.
Dental hygienist is awesome and caring! We always talk about life during our visit. I’ve been going to this office for about a year and half now. They helped turn my dental health around to zero cavities each visit.
This place is really good! They have been really caring and they listen to you as a patient and work with you.I had not been to a dentist in almost 12 years and my gums had been really causing issues recentlyI initially had gone to a dentist who had told me to I would need 22 teeth removed… I came to visit Dr Ryan and he told me 8 and I was still worried and devastated. So he gave me some medication to help with the pain and told to talk to a periodontist. From that referral, the periodontist concurred his finding and actually said it should be 9 because I still have my wisdom teeth and they are just not helping me in anyway…Now I am going to DentistryofColorado for my cleaning and they have been very patient and empathetic with my situation and ask… I asked to take my 4 wisdom tooth out first and wait for 3 weeks before taking any of my 5 other teeth…. At which point they will do a reevaluation and check to see how to proceed. They even called me to check in on me the day after my cleaning and have shown me how to take care of my teeth and mainly gums (this is where I took it for granted and did not give my gums the care it needed)I have always been weary of doctors and dentist but they notice that and have been always warm, and making sure you are heard
I have only been going to Dentistry of Colorado - Arvada a short time. I have found the staff to be caring, knowledgeable and very skilled at each visit. I plan to continue to use them for my dental needs. I think you will like them very much too.
This was my first visit to see Dr. Ryan for a cleaning and chipped tooth. I found the receptionist very pleasant and informative as to the procedures and charges with my dental plan. The dental hygienist was also very good and informative as she took x-rays and during the cleaning procedure. Dr. Ryan was calm, reserved, yet professional in my check-up and repairing my tooth which took only minutes. I will return in December. I would recommend this dental office to others and will refer my husband.Sincerely,Nancy Willingham

Lafayette

Dr. Vera and the staff at Dentistry of Colorado Lafayette are absolutely fabulous! Gentle is the name of their game. Dr. Vera, the dental assistant Amanda, and hygienist Cindy are all very mindful of gathering thorough history and making certain it is appropriate to start dental treatment. Cans of starting gingerly with the metal instruments and carefully working up to the needed amount of pressure to complete the work. The entire team is friendly and really listened to my question, giving me practical and helpful suggestions for tooth and gum health maintenance. Love this group!! ⭐️
As someone who has generally spent most of my time with the dental hygienist...thankfully never having to have any major dental work done...the hygienist here at the Lafayette location is top notch! Cindy is both very welcoming, knowledgeable, and thorough. Dr. Vera is excellent as well! If I ever need more extensive work done, I would feel very comfortable with her to do the job.
Second time at this business and I still love them as much as the first 5star review! Dr Vera is kind, approachable, and really knows her business! I hope this brings more business their way but not so much that I can’t get scheduled when needed!😊 (I know: how selfish of me!)
Dr. Vera was very confident and I felt I was in good hands for my crown. No pain whatsoever other than getting the shot. Both Dr. Vera and her assistant Amanda were caring, asked lots of questions, and explained everything as they proceeded. I was able to use a AARP United Healthcare Medicare supplement discount which made getting the crown affordable. Joe in the office couldn't have been any nicer, getting me set up. Positive experience all around.
The team at Dentistry of Colorado are wonderful. I appreciate their attention to detail. Dr. Vera is wonderful and Cindy and the hygienist team are meticulous. Joe at the front desk is fantastic, his friendly persona welcoming you starts your experience in such a positive way and he takes the stress out of dealing with insurance and scheduling appointments.
The DoC is always full of fun, professional individuals that care deeply about you and your health. There is clearly a strong emphasis on education with abundant answers for any questions that you pose. I always enjoy my visits and feel very privileged to be a patient at this facility.
I just had my first appointment at DOC- Lafayette and had a great experience. I saw Dr. Karly Vera. Dr. Vera performed my cleaning, which surprised me; I am used to the dental hygienist doing the entire cleaning, and the dentist pops in at the very end to do a final check. Perhaps this is just for a new patient visit. Regardless, I appreciated it. Dr. Vera was very thorough, professional, and personable. Everyone else I came in contact with in the office was also helpful, friendly and efficient. The office was clean. I plan to return for my future routine dental care.
Joe is the best! He is always on top of his game, empathetic and helpful. The dentist take their time to answer all questions and concerns. They have a holistic approach to avoid cutting on teeth whenever possible! Always have a positive experience when I go.

Best dental experience I’ve ever had!I have been around the dental block, and continuously ran into poor practices and rude staff, however, that was not the case for Dentistry of Colorado - Lafayette. The front desk staff was wonderfully pleasant (Joe) and had great communication around my appointment and insurance, the dental assistant (Sabree) was well-educated and such a pleasure to chat with. Everyone made me feel welcome and completely guilt free! And then I got to my amazing doctor, who I am soooo pleased I get to continue seeing and working with to get my mouth where it needs to be. Dr. Vera was so welcoming and communicative with everything she did, possible outcomes, all options. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience! No one is ever excited to go to the dentist, especially when it’s been awhile, and I can honestly say that I cannot wait!
I am so happy with my care at this dentist!! I felt cared for immediately by everyone from the front desk (Brandi), to hygienist (Cindy) and Dr. Carly Vera who was super knowledgeable and kind. I can tell they take pride in their work & really care for people here.
Was greeted with a friendly smile & welcome. Doing X-rays she explained what section with each section. There was a delay for my appointment & Brandi told there was a delay & the dr. would be with me asap. Cindy told me everything she was going to do when cleaning my teeth. She is so sweet. Dr Vera was kind & patient answering my questions. I felt very comfortable with all those in the office.
Cindy and Dr. Vera are such a great team. I felt like they cleared their entire schedules to make sure I was taken care of and comfortable. They explained every step of their process and what they were seeing. I have 100% faith and trust in them after only my initial visit. I had been looking for a provider for a while, and I am so glad I got in to see them. Everyone from the front desk back is so personable and kind. If there is a wait for a visit, and you are NOT in an emergency situation, be patient, because they are worth it!

Lakewood

The staff here is very friendly and they do their best to make you feel comfortable and welcome. I had a fracture in one of my back molars, and they were able to set me up with referrals, and finishing appointments in a timely manner. Very great and comfortable environment, with a great view from the dental office as well!!!

First experience with this dentist and his staff. It was a good experience and I’m going to use them for my dental work. Highly recommended.

New patient to this office and really happy with the service! Everyone here is so nice and scheduling was easy. Heather was the hygienist and she is the best!! She walked me through everything and left with my teeth so clean. Look forward to my next cleaning. Definitely recommend.

That was the most efficient and friendly dentist office I have ever been to. The front desk was really sweet, and Heather the dental hygienist was so amicable. Dentist was in and out and everyone as a team made the time fly. So glad I found this place as my home dentist location.
Christopher O.
I’ve been going here for a few years and they’re always so punctual. They respect my time and always call and text to confirm my appointments. When I was transitioned to a new dentist before (at this same office) they were so helpful. Heather is knowledgeable and informative. While cleaning, she’s gentle and lets you know what’s going on.
Lia C.
Best dental office ever! Hands down perfect in everything they do!

Heather and Dr. Shaffer are an amazing team...both my girls went in and had the best dental experience ....
Krista W.
I had started to experience a lot of pain and could not bare it any longer. I went into Dentistry of Colorado and within 5 minutes of completing the paperwork I was seen by the dentist and 30 minutes later the emergency was taken care of. The staff was wonderful, professional and very attentive, I would recommend this facility to those that need emergency service.

I was so impressed with my experience Doctor & the whole team today! They really helped accommodate my tight schedule. I got some great tips while being well informed. I was hesitant bc of past years & switching Around of doctors etc. But that was all put at ease today and I am definitely going to recommend to my friends & family. (:

The hygienist was very nice,informative and so patient with all my questions. The doctor was also really nice. Looking forward to going back!
Megan P.
I had a great cleaning with Heather. Heather is very thorough, knowledgeable and passionate in the work she does. She took the time to answer all of my dental related questions and concerns. We even had the opportunity to chat about life and the many obstacles we all face. Thank you.

Westminster

Nice Staff! Dr. Grenillo was really nice to me after coming in for some discomfort after a filling. He listened to my concerns, addressed them, and let me know to not hesitate to reach out if anything else arises 🙂 Aside from all this being at no cost.
I started my journey to stop my jaw pain w Dr. Pollack 4yrs ago. Since then we’ve been through COVID and numerous location changes, but she and her office staff continue to be kind, friendly and supportive no matter what issue I happen to bring in to them. Today Dr. Grenillo helped me w a chipped front tooth. He’s a total Rock Star, and took great care of me! He’s very gentle and knows what he’s doing. Thank you for hiring such great employees Dr. Pollack, you take good care of them and then they take great care of us! (And yes, my jaw is pain free now!)
I was super anxious to get work done other than just a cleaning in my mouth after a terrible dentist experience years ago with a botched filling. Dr. O completely turned it around with his gentle and awesome work! I’ve gotten 2 cleanings here over the past year and just had some fillings done. The hygienist were awesome for both cleanings and Dr. O did an excellent job on making sure I was comfortable for the fillings and in no pain.
I’ve been waiting to write a review because I wanted to be honest with my experience and develop a relationship with the dentistry before posting. Dr. O and Ebony were the ones to be there and perform my wisdom teeth removal, both super kind and knowledgeable about what they’re doing. Though I kept a calm composure during my surgery I was stressing terribly in my head but Dr. O spoke to Ebony every step of the way of what he was doing as if he was talking to me and answered all the questions that we’re running through my mind during the procedure, I could not have been more pleased and happy with the exceptional care and work they did for me.
I had not been to a dentist for about 3 years because of a terribly painful experience with having a cavity filled. After reading some positive reviews I decided to try this practice out and was not disappointed. Dr. O had to fill the same exact tooth as my old dentist and it was entirely painless! Dr. O was also both extremely helpful in answering questions and extremely careful in doing his work. Easily the best dentist I've ever had. Also, Kelli who did my cleaning was fantastic. Very personable and did a great job. I'll definitely be back in 6 months.If you are nervous about going to a dentist, rest assured you'll be taken great care of here!
