My family and I have been going to Dr. Petersen for about 12 years. We followed him to his independent practice because he is quite simply the best dentist I have ever had. He is patient, kind, gentle, welcomes questions and takes the time to answer them, as well as explain difficult procedures. He has done 2 crowns for me (fixed one that had been badly done before by someone else) and has now done an implant for both myself and my husband. He inspires confidence because he is so meticulous to get everything perfect, but is friendly and personable at the same time. His office manager, hygienists and staff are top notch professionals. They also offer an in-house discount plan. If you are looking for a really careful and kind dentist that you can trust your family to, I highly recommend Dr. Petersen!

The best dentist I have ever been to. I do not like going to the dentist, and I have had very bad experiences. Dr. Petersen is truly the first dentist I have found where I am comfortable and not filled with anxiety. The staff is extremely friendly and kind. The dental hygienists listen to your concerns, do not make you feel bad about your oral hygiene, and are gentle. I have had deep cleaning, fillings placed, and crowns. They have worked with me to get the most out of my insurance and the prices are very reasonable. While Dr. Petersen has always offered different options for treatment I never feel pressured or pushed for the up-sell. I highly recommend Dr. Petersen. He and his staff are exceptional.

Dr. Petersen and his entire staff are pros from the word “go”! Everyone there is positive and upbeat and they realize that not everyone ( me) likes to go to the dentist but they go out of their way to make you as comfortable as possible . Dr. Petersen is meticulous in his dentistry and explains clearly what needs to be done and answers any questions you might have.

New patients are required to have a cleaning in 2 visits. One to look at my teeth, the next to clean them. It was a waste of my time. The office manager explained to me how hard it is for dentists to stay in practice because insurance doesn’t pay much. I felt like he was trying to make me feel bad for utilizing my insurance. I needed a procedure. I paid my portion and insurance paid their portion, the front office then told me on my next visit the was an additional fee due. It felt dishonest.

Wonderful dental practice for our family, from the 5yr. old, his 7 yr. old brother, their parents and their grandmother (me)! I was terrified to find a new dentist when we moved to CO in 2016. I'm one of those patients with high dental anxiety. All my appointments have been pain free, thorough and non stressful. I highly recommend their entire team.

Tiffany and Dr Peterson were great with my squirrelly 3 year old! He had fun while I was able to learn more about the growth and development of his airway and sign up for the healthy start program! I am grateful for their extensive skills and being able to provide my son with more than just a basic dental check up. Healthy start will help him sleep better now and need less orthodontia later!

Excellent prices, staff and Dr. care. Not a corporate chain. Not there to “up sell” like my previous not too good dentist.
