I’m not sure where to start ! Instead of looking around after a series of negative dental experiences somewhere else I took a long break from “the dentist” in general. I wish I had known about Dr. Wachuta and his staff at Gentle Smiles years ago. I walked in to the comfy spa like waiting room (irrationally) terrified to open my mouth. The front desk staff were welcoming and professional. I got a painless thorough cleaning and exam and even a relaxing education on oral health throughout the process. Today I came back and saw Dr. Wachuta and assistant Lizzy for fillings which went seamlessly without a hitch. They were calm , attentive, compassionate, caring, and skilled. Before this appointment I was worried that between nerves and having a mouth that doesn’t numb easily I was going to have to be sedated to get any work done. Great news - no sedation necessary and no pain ! I never thought I’d say this (but changed my mind after finding this place) - I now enjoy going to the dentist !

Great dentist... always straight forward and caring. I recently chipped one of my front teeth. They got me in right away and the terrific dental assistant (Lizzy) was amazing. The tooth looks good as new! Thanks!!

He is incompetent and on some weird ego trip. You enter his office and it's full of pictures of him running marathons and climbing mountains. How poor patients and staff have no option but to be awestruck I guess. He has zero empathy for his patients. He will never know what's going on with you (at least read the records before you come in). One visit he FORGOT to check my dental x-ray. Another time, he missed a tooth that needed a root canal leading to an emergency dental procedure not covered by my insurance. I can go on and tell you other horror stories, but, I hope this is sufficient to get the picture of his level of idiocy.

I had to switch from my long time dentist to Dr. Wachuta after I retired. I have been extremely pleased with the staff and Dr. Wachuta. I am working on replacing a second bridge in two years. They were both long overdue to be replaced. They did not pressure me in any way and worked with me on the schedule and answered any concerns I had. The staff has always been extremely friendly and accommodating. Lizzie is the assistant that is working with me now and she has been very helpful, thorough and reassuring.

I had an appointment at Dr Wachuta's office today and was very pleased to be able to get my tooth fixed without another appointment. I have been going to this office for many years and have been very satisfied with my care. The hygienists are pleasant and efficient

We have been going to Dr. Wachuta at the Golden office for years and he is the only dentist we trust for all our needs. I had to have a tooth extraction done and he did amazing. HIs Assistant Lizzy was very helpful and knowledgeable. Answered all my concerns and very I felt that she really cared. Appreciate all that you do.

Has a RT and it went much better than expected. ( was my first RT experience) He and Lizzy made the scary procedure as comfortable as possible. Dr. Wachuta is a very nice guy and had me in and out faster than expected. I would recommend the Denver office to anyone looking for a dentist. Reception is very nice and takes the time to explain cost, insurance, etc.

Dr. Wachuta is a great dentist! I have been going to his office for 18 years. He listens and explains things well. I’ve had cleanings, fillings, an implant, and now a root canal done all with no complaints. Today Liz was his assistant while performing my root canal, she was sweet, gentle, and had great bedside manners! Thanks Gentle Smiles!

I have been a patient of Dr. Wachuta's for approximately 25 years. My complete satisfaction has caused me to recommend several of my friends to him. April 3, 2019 he prepared me to have 4 crowns installed and with his very excellent assistant Lizzy I could not be happier. Lizzy is extremely competent . His office staff are second to none.

Dr. Wachuta and his whole team are great. I appreciate that they are a back to basics dentist office. If you want the fancy lasers and being pressured into treatment costing hundreds or thousands of dollars, then go somewhere else. Dr. Wachuta is friendly, efficient, and an excellent dentist. He is the fourth dentist I have tried since moving to Denver and I finally found someone I can trust. I won't be switching again. Thanks Dr. Wachuta! Go Badgers!

I had a very positive experience at the Wheat Ridge office. Dr. Wachuta is very personable and explained the progress and status of how well the procedure was going as he went along. He took several X rays during the procedure to ensure that all of the canals had been successfully cleaned. Liz, his assistant, and Brie and Marie and the other staff have all been very friendly and helpful.

Had a filling done by Dr Wachuta and his assistant Lizzy yesterday. Quick, friendly and absolutely painless. What more can I ask? If you need dental work, this is the place to go.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Wachuta for more than 10 years and this review is long overdue. Recently, my 8-year-old daughter went in to have two teeth extracted and a little extra work on her upper gums. She was terrified! I knew we were in safe hands. Dr. Wachuta came to see us in the lobby right after the procedure to inform us that she did great and everything went smoothly! The friendly staff also was comforting as my daughter had lots of questions! Thanks a million!

Dr. Wachuta cured me of my fear of going to the dentist. His practice is appropriately named Gentle Smiles. Nancy the Hygienist was friendly and extremely efficient. She also gave me some helpful suggestions on caring for my teeth. Aldo, Dr Wachuta’s assistant was gentle and skillful in making the necessary adjustments for my crowns and fillings as well as smoothly down some of the rough edges on the back of a couple of my teeth. He was also very gentle and friendly. Highly recommend!!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Wachuta for 17 years now, and every time I have any work done, I am treated with the utmost professionalism and care. . possible by everyone in his office. I had a filling come out and I got an appointment the next day. Dr Wachuta prepped the filling and his assistant Liz did the rest professionally. Liz was very kind and courteous during the procedure. I highly recommended Gentle Smiles to everyone.

My experience with Dr. Wachuta and his amazing staff was incredible. I never thought I’d say that about a dentist office, but this one deserves some major kudos for what an exceptional job they all do! Kaylene, the receptionist, is super friendly and Lisa, the dental hygienist, is by far the best at her job that it’s hard to tell you just a few things she does so well! Lisa and Dr. Wachuta are really the ones that made such a lasting impression on me, which is why I will always come here!
