    Lawrence Yahnian DDS
    Awful. I scheduled the appointment after my crown came off and was hoping to get in and fitted for a new one before my vacation. I explained that I would like to come in and get this going and in the mean time, I would have peace of mind with at least having my exposed tooth protected with a temporary while waiting on the permanent to be made. Unfortunately, I am very experienced in this process and procedures associated with crowns, root canals, etc. During my appointment, 4 days before leaving to the DR, I was in Dr. Yahnians care. The visit started out with his assistant informing me that I will be getting numbed up. Wait. Numbed up? Why would someone need to get numb just to have his tooth sunk into that laffy taffy mold they use to get the form of your tooth, I asked. To my surprise, the Dr. was planning on surgically cutting my gum back. ***? No one asked for this. Remember, all I need is a temp for today and a crown when I return. Simple. My tooth was not in pain at all. I never had an issue with the other crown. The only reason it came off is because I requested that the previous dentist cement it on with temporary cement versus permanent. This was because I have had a couple instances over the years where 6 months after spending big money on a crown I find out I need a root canal and there goes the crown. Wasted. That backfired on me because it came off and I couldnt find it. My bad. But, there was no issue with how it fit or anything and now I am being told I am going to get my gums cut. Nope. He then took a look and said "oh yeah, I dont need to do that. I am just going to notch it with my drill". Whatever.....I didnt understand but whatever. He finished up after 5 mins of drilling and disappears. His assistant proceeds with the molding. She is sweet and likable for sure but It was becoming very apparent she is not competent in her skills yet and I am the test rat. Kinda like going to a beauty college a getting a haircut by someone who isnt seasoned yet. Not good. She was fumbling everything, I was having to hold medical equipment as if I were her dental assistant and she was pumping that sticky *** mold all over the place, including my beard. Note: took a day to get it out. She dropped the glue gun on the floor of the office and put it right back in my mouth, omitting the importance of sanitation. I could tell she was finishing up and I said, what about my temporary crown? She said, oh you have gone this long without it so it shouldnt be a problem. WOW. I had to convince her that I should have one and dont forget, that was my number one objective with this appointment. She returned and said that she could put one of those silver caps that they use for children. *** again?? NOTE: This is my uppermost back molar. She proceeded to try to engineer this thing and shoved her hand in my mouth, retry, retry, and again and again. Again, obvious she didnt know what she was doing. I said forget it and I left with less tooth than when I came in and no temporary crown. Once at home that night, after the numbing wore off from the drilling procedure, I was experiencing severe hot and cold sensitivity. New problem I did not have before. Seriously, severe sensitivity. I emailed them and expressed my displeasure with how the day went. I also, very tactfully informed them (front desk manager) that I do not want her working on me anymore. They seemed to take me seriously and appeared to be very empathetic. He said he was be discreet about this and pass this along to Dr. Yahnian. I felt he needed to know. He said the Dr. was going to be off and will not be able to do anything before I leave. I also requested that since I am in severe pain and I am going to a 3rd world country in less than 3 days, perhaps the Dr. could script me something in the event this gets any worse. I finally get a VM from the office manager saying there is a script of Vicodin waiting for me if I would like to drive 30 min to get it. REALLY? Couldnt even call it in to my pharmacy 1 mile away. ***? NOTE: Still havent seen or heard from Dr. Yahnian since he finished drilling. I had a tooth ache my entire vacation and carried orajel everywhere. Had to apply about every 2 hours and during the night too. Finally found pharmacia with generic codene and that really helped. I return for my appt after my toothcation to get my permanent crown on. Guess who was walking me back to my room? YES...the same dental assistant that I told them I do not want working on me. ***? Keeping my cool, I say nothing. She begins to put the crown on but before she does I explain very clearly that the tooth is so sensitive to touch and temp. Like I cant even suck air in or bad pain. She said, "okay" and started in with the crown. As soon as she touched it I had to jerk away in pain. It was like she didnt even care what I told her. Finally, she said she would get the Dr. Yup, Dr. Yahnian makes his first appearance with out any acknowledgement to the previous situation, no sorries, no nothing. He gives me a shot and leaves. I sit there fore 15 mins and assistant returns. I told her that its not numb and it still hurts to temp and touch. Once again, same thing. I pull away in pain. Dr. Yahnian returns and administers another shot then leaves again. I sit there for 20 minutes this time. Assistant returns, cements the tooth on permanently and sends me on. After the numbing wears off, tooth still sensitive to temp and touch. Believe it or not, I got an email from the manager asking how it was the next day...but not the Dr. I explained the pain and that I cant fully bite down with normal pressure without pain. He replied and said we should wait until the following Monday and they would call and check then. That would be like 4-5 days. ***? Monday came and went and never heard from them. Monday evening, tooth comes off. ***? I emailed the office and expressed my displeasure by saying the following: "Never heard from you today. Crown came off. Terrible experience with this office". Got a reply the following morning saying the following: "Hi Spencer, we can recement the crown tomorrow at 3 if you are available". WOW. This is now Tuesday morning and not only is there zero accountability they cant even shuffle something to get me in immediately. ***?? I let them know our business was finished and I will look elsewhere. Within 30 minutes (already did my research on reviews) I was able to book an appointment same day within the hour. I am all fixed up now and I am proud to share that [*** Link removed ***] is awesome. Specifically, Dr. Hang T. Hoang, D.D.S. is amazing. She also has been voted 5280 Dentist of the year for the last three consecutive years.

    Northstar Dental (formerly Plous and Adler Family Dentistry)
    I have been a life-long patient of Northstar Dental and have been grateful for the quality care I have received. Cleanings are comprehensive but efficient with state of the art technology for both cleanings and procedures. The staff is always so welcoming and they do a wonderful job at making you feel like their top priority. I'm very happy with the quality of care I have received over the years!

    Tyr Peterson DDS
    Terrible. This man is a poor businessman, communicator and a dishonest individual. He was a new dr for me. He did not review my dental records or contact the insurance company prior to placing the temporary crown. He also did not provide me with an estimate in advance of doing the initial work, or even afterwards. He did not inform me that it's quite customary for the former dentist to replace a 2 year old crown at no cost to the patient. I learned this the hard way. I had really great dentists for more than 20 years, and they had knowledgeable business/insurance specialists on staff. He lied repeatedly in terms of the services he performed/didn't perform, and about the dates of service, etc. In the end, I had to pay him a large sum of money. Please do not trust this dentist with your care. Also, if a dentist tells you that they will act in your best interest to negotiate with the insurance company, don't believe them. It's really best if you work directly with the insurance company yourself. While most dentists step in to help out the patients, and to protect themselves from unforeseen costs, it is the patients responsibility to work things out with the insurance company.

    Medaugh, Dr. Peter C.
    He is a great dentist. He is very good, thorough, and tells you exactly what he is going to do before he does it. He gives you all the options if you do it or do not do it. He tells you the cost if you ask. There are no secrets with him. He is really a great guy to have for a dentist. He has a great staff. He did a great job the last time I saw him. He did it in a hurry. I really like that. He values your time. He has the latest equipment. He has kind of a tester. He pokes your gums with little needles. It does not hurt. Apparently, it turns white when it happens and they grade it from one to ten. It shows you if you could have possible issues in the future with gum disease. He took some pictures of some fillings that were put in by another dentist. They were so rude. It was horrible. It looked like a wash board. He said that that was crazy and that he would not have done that in his office. He did not even ask who the dentist was. He was so thorough. Anybody could go in for a test drive. He is just a super guy. If you have a problem over the weekend, you give them a call and he will immediately see you in the office. There is no hassle or no non-sense. If you have a problem, he will see you after hours or before hours. I work at a house and I see him anytime I want, but for some people, they had to be at work until seven. He can meet you at 6 if you need to. He has a very good practice. His office is nice, clean, and jovial. He got a kind of new age tag music. It is not rock and roll. It is something you hear in an elevator, but a little bit classier. He is always on time. I always see him at one o’clock. I am the first customer after lunch. His staff is there. His staff is all girls. They are really having a good time. They are fun to be around. I am kind of looking forward on going. It is hard to believe I would say something like that to a dentist. I have recommended him to so many people. If they are looking for a dentist, I tell them about this guy. He is that good and he calls me up later and says thanks. I have no intention of switching.

    Bertagnolli Dental
    No one likes dentist and the fact that dentists are expensive but the last visit was great.  They have high technology instruments and the treatment definitely works.  It is family owned and they have reasonable rates.  I like their operations.  They are really great people.

    Dr. Patrick J. Mcclure, DDS
    I’m not impressed with him. His office was not clean and he has no office staff. I would not recommend him. He’s the only one in the office. It was dusty, he did the vacuum and it gave me the creeps. He did okay. He cleaned my teeth himself but I don’t think I want to go back to him. I got his name from a dental advertisement on TV. He was recommended through a dental referral list. I had to leave a message and wait for him to call me back. He called me back that day. It was a strange dealing that day with him. We agreed that it would be done for the price of my insurance coverage, which covers a 100%. Then I get a bill afterwards about what my insurance paid. The only thing I think would be is I know he does it all himself. He has no assistant. The cleaning was okay. I felt worried about my teeth being clean because the office is dirty. He answered my questions, which I did have many. Like I said on the billing, what my insurance is covering because he was doing all the cleaning and that’s all I have for the coverage for that visit. Then they charged my insurance an extra $90, which wasn’t covered completely. He was okay for punctuality.

    Birnbaum, Dr. Anne W.
    It was great.  She is a fun dentist.  I went in to see her because I was having problems with my jaw.  But she wasn't able to find the problem.  I then had pain in a tooth, I called her emergency number and she was able to diagnose what was going on and sent in prescription. The staff is great.   I've been going to her for 3 and a half years.

    Lori Trembath DDS
    It was actually an implant situation but when I did not hear back from my prosthodontist, I called Dr. Trembath. As I previously stated, she got back to me within 1 minute of my call to her. She advised me what and what not to do until I could see my prosthodontist the next day (I never received a call back from him).

    Broomfield Plaza Family Dntstry
    Frank and Nina Bowling have been providing dental services to my family of five for over twenty years. Frank typically handles adults while Nina usually works with children. Both dentists are extremely proficient and professional. Rarely do I have to wait even five minutes for my scheduled appointment time. Frank has coordinated extensive work with a nearby periodontist (Mark Wheeler, who is also excellent) to ensure my oral health is maintained. He not only does my routine exams, but he also repairs chipped teeth and sets crowns on worn down teeth as well as implanted posts. He does not recommend dental procedures unless they are absolutely necessary. He will even work through lunch to address emergencies. I highly recommend Frank.Nina has treated our children from early years through college. She is very careful with the young ones and has the knowledge to provide services as baby teeth are replaced with adult teeth. She can recommend orthodontia when necessary. She is outstanding!If you are looking for a dentist, you can not go wrong with this terrific team.

    Standley Shores Dental Group
    They did not list all of their charges on recent Statement. I received a statement for $524 and nowhere on this itemized statement did they say that laser treatments were performed and how much they cost. They didn't even list laser treatments when they sent the charges to our insurance Company. I expected to have a credit, based on my insurance EOBs. I called them and it was explained to me that my insurance company does not cover laser treatments. This was the first time they mentioned it, but of course, they said it was on my treatment plan. No one said, I'm going to perform laser treatment on you and it is not covered by your insurance company and the cost is $____. If they had mentioned it, I would not have agreed and my husband definitely would not have agreed to it. I had prepared to plunk down $17,000 for implants that they say is also not covered by my insurance. Thankfully, I didn't because who knows what hidden charges are associated with that. Don't be sucked in by their beautiful offices and nice manner, behind the scenes, they are devious and misleading and very rude when questioned about it.
