Dr. Heller's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Heller "Medicine wasn't a surprising career choice for Dr. Douglas Heller. Many of his immediate and extended family members work as medical professionals. The Denver native and proud graduate of Thomas Jefferson High School first became interested in dentistry from his uncle (Dr. Versman), who is now his partner along with Dr. Eric Beckman at Periodontal Associates. Dr. Heller earned his Periodontal Certificate from the University of Pennsylvania and his D.M.D. Degree at Tufts University. He thoroughly enjoys practicing periodontics as it provides him with a great opportunity to work with a variety of patients, each who comes with their own diverse background. Dr. Heller remains active in organized dentistry and has taken multiple leadership roles, both statewide and nationally. In 2013 Dr. Heller was recognized as Chairmen of the Year by the Metropolitan Denver Dental Society. He has been named one of 5280's Top Dentists from 2008-2016 and was the first ever recipient of the 2015 Denver Post Strength in Health Dental Excellence in Health Care Award for specialists in dentistry. Dr. Heller teaches periodontics at the University Of Colorado School of Dental Medicine in the Department of Surgical Dentistry. He is a member of a monthly Spear study club with other local dentists in the Denver metro area. Additionally, for over ten years Periodontal Associates has hosted a continuing education Hygiene Study Club for local dental hygienists and a Dental Implant Seminar speaker series. The Implant Seminars brings local and national experts to speak on the ever-changing dental implant technology and methods. Dr. Heller family consists of Amy and his kids, Rigley and Teigan. Being that the kids are both young, much of his free time is spent chasing monsters, looking for dinosaurs and doing random art projects. If he does get a chance to have some time himself, he can be found fly fishing in the Carbondale area or in the winter doing some skiing. He tries to stay active and most recently has picked up playing hockey."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Heller "My philosophy is simple: To try to always do the right thing. I try to have a practical approach to treatment, and to take care of people as people. And to me, that's the crux of the matter in any business, to treat people the way you would want to be treated the best part of my job is developing relationships with my patients. The real key for all dentists is to have a caring and a true passion for the well being of their patients. At the end of the day, the dentist often gets credit, but it's the whole staff that's responsible for success. I've truly been blessed with a great family, great dentists, great staff and of course great patients."

I needed an implant where a tooth had been extracted a decade ago. I was terrified and in the consultation, he assured me i would feel very little if any pain. He was quick, efficient and indeed, no pain. His office staff are great too - knowledgeable, friendly and willing to help. Thank you for...more
