I was pleasently suprised by the expert & friendly care both my son and I received from Dr Wachuta and his entire staff. Their friendliness and expertise put us both at ease. This was by far the best dental experience I have ever had. I could not recommend them more highly.

I go to Gentle Smiles for all my dental needs but most recently I needed work done on one of my front teeth that required a crown put on. I decided it would be best to match the surrounding teeth as well so I had 7 crowns put on. Dr Wachuta put all the crowns on in one afternoon, they match my other teeth, and look amazing! Dr Wachuta's assistant Lizzy was very helpful and made the task of putting my permanent crowns on simple and painless.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Wachuta for nearly 20 years. He is gentle, as well as very professional. The office staff, Bree is exceptional helping with scheduling, insurance questions, etc. My hygienist, Jean is gentle, yet thorough. I would recommend Dr. Wachutas office highly for new patients.

I had a follow up visit to fit my crown for which I was prepped a couple of weeks ago. Liz and Dr. Wachuta did a wonderful job. Painless and very professional. I would highly recommend Gentle Smiles of Colorado to anyone who needs dental work or is looking for a new dentist.
Denver, CO |
Had a great experience having a cleaning, and prep for a crown. Dr. Wachuta and his assistant Megan were fantastic. As close to painless as I have ever had. Also my hygienist, Eric was also excellent. Great front desk staff.

Dr. Wachuta is the BEST dentist I have ever used. His office is wonderful from the front desk with Kaley to his team of associates. I had been to dentist in the past who always wanted to dive right in with what I now understand were unnecessary procedures, but Dr. Wachuta got my teeth in tip top shape using proactive and preventative measures. My teeth finally look and feel great. I'll always use his awesome practice and will refer him to everyone.

From Dr. Wachuta, to his dental hygienist, to the receptionist, Bre.... everyone at this clinic is thoughtful, caring, welcoming, and friendly. I went here for an annual cleaning and found the service warm and comforting. Definitely recommended.

I was very pleased with my experience. Dr. Wachuta was very kind and i would recommended. Dr. Wachuta's assistant Viola made the experience one of the best. She has a heart of gold and i wish her all the best.
in Evergreen, CO |
I have been going to Dr. Wachuta for over 10 years. I would recommend this office to anyone that is looking for a dentist. They are very professional and treat their patients with respect and care.
in Golden, CO |
Switched to Dr. Wachuta and staff due to recently starting Medicare. I had an initial exam in September; followed up with cleaning by Nancy Felix. Before the cleaning, a serious gum infection threatened before holiday travel. Dr. W prescribed antibiotics, cleared the infection-Nancy cleaned/disinfected the gums (laser technology). Next week Tim took care of a cavity, w/potential to be a root canal, but being careful we avoided the RC $62 vs $750. Great work and attitude, highly professional!
Golden, CO |
Wacuta's practice is based upon revenue, stack the monkey's up, deliver mediocre service & make the caged wait to look at pictures of Wacuta on vacation. 20 minutes late again today, which may represent proficiency in the medical & dental arena, provider comes out to deliver paperwork that ensures the $$$, completely ignores the patient - as in not even one word of kindness for your patience. You don't like it, go somewhere else. I am taking my own advice in perpetuity.
in Boulder, CO |
I regularly go to Dr. Wachuta's Wheat Ridge location (Gentle Smiles) and it's great. Bree is a very helpful receptionist who has worked with many of the curveballs of my changing schedule. The dental assistants and dentists there are great.
in Arvada, CO |
Had a terrible toothache and the Gentle Smiles office got me in quickly. Ended up having my first root canal and it wasn't bad at all. Dr. Wachuta does a very good job of making the procedure painless and tolerable.

I found Dr. Wachuta's office about a year ago and I was so happy to have found them! I happily bring all of my family there for our dental needs, I have small children as well as a teenager and they are great with everyone! Bre is great up front and always calls to remind me of one of our appointments! They fit you in right away when you need emergency services, I cannot say enough about this place! I would highly recommend them to anyone I know needing a good dentist!
in Wheat Ridge,CO |
Dr. Wachuta and his staff are always professional and kind. Bre is excellent at understanding my busy schedule and finding a right appointment time for me. I would recommend this office!
in Longmont, CO |
We travel from Longmont to Golden because we are so satisfied with Dr. Wachuta and Maria, hygienist.
in Denver, CO |
I have gone to Dr. Wachuta for over ten years . Never have I had an unpleasant experience. His entire staff is very professional and friendly. November 2, 2016 I had 4 front upper teeth prepared for crowns which will be done in 3 weeks. Dr. Wachuta is extremely competent. His two assistants Jenny and Sara where very well trained and very efficient. Mike Perkins
in Denver |
I have had very positive experiences at Gentle Smiles. All of the staff are very courteous and professional and go out of their way to help you in any way they can. They are very knowledgeable when it comes to specific treatments and dental plans. Kaylene and Sara at the front desk are always very accommodating when it comes to helping out with insurance needs.
in Golden, CO |
Dr. Wachuta and all his staff are very professional and friendly. I have used Dr. Wachuta for 4 years. I recently had to have some extensive work done in preparation for a partial plate. Dr. Wachuta and his staff are always very gentle. I have found myself in the past with other dentists, begging for more pain killer during a procedure. Dr. Wachuta always seems to provide the correct amount nessasary to keep the pain at bay. I am always surprised how pain free I feel the next day. D. Land
in Lakewood, co |
During my first initial visit everyone was so friendly and welcoming. They were so much fun with lots of smiles. The whole staff is great. They even called me the next day to ask how I was doing after my visit. Today I had a deep cleaning in the Golden office and Cheryl, my dental hygienist was so laid back, gentle and communicative. After all the dentists I have gone to, I feel I finally found my dentist. The whole staff treat you like family. Dr. Wachuta is awesome. He is honest & personable.
in Denver, CO |
I am a new patient at Gentle Smiles. I worked primarily with Dr. Williams and it was by far the easiest, most pain free experience I have had at a Dentists' office (I had six fillings done over the course of two days). Everyone worked together to make sure scheduling was convenient, that I was clear about billing information, and that I had the best possible care. I would recommend them to anyone.
in Wheat Ridge, CO |
I just recently switched dentist offices to Gentle Smiles and I loved it! The receptionist Bre, was super friendly and very helpful! The rest of the staff and doctors really made the experience comfortable and easy. I would highly recommend going to this office.
in Denver, CO |
Dr Wachuta has been my dentist for about 13 years. I came to him with many dental issues. I have complete confidence in him to do what needs to be done every time I'm in his office. I recently had a new post and crown made and he made me feel comfortable and did a great job. His assistant Liz was wonderful also.
in Lakewood, CO |
This was my first visit to see Dr. Wachuta after just moving from out of state. I was warmly greeted by Bre, working front desk, who made me feel so comfortable and welcomed. The Doctor and his staff were trustworthy, kind, and informative. My experience was very pleasant and I will definitely be returning for my dental care.
in Englewood, CO |
I recently took my six-year-old son for his first real visit: x-rays, exam, cleaning. Dr. Appleby and the dental assistant, Jenny, were great with him - so kind and gentle. He actually said it was fun! They are able to schedule kids on relatively short notice, too, which is helpful.
Bre is professional and cordial on the phone and in the office. I appreciate her kindness. Jane made me feel comfortable during my exam and cleaning. I had not had some of the things Jane did during my extensive exam. Dr. Appleby knew what could be causing sensitivity in an area of my mouth and fixed it by grinding down one of my crowns. Dr. Appleby and Jane are both calming. After having the same dentist, Sloans Lake Dental, for 30 years, I'm thankful to have found your office.
in Denver, CO |
My experience with Dr. Wachuta was a pleasant surprise considering my past history with other dentists. His professionalism and knowledge exceeded all my expectations. I would highly recommend his services.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Wachuta and his staff members Liz and Jen were outstanding in perfectly matching my new crown. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I was able to get a temporary put in that looked close to normal so that it was hard to tell the difference. This was in the very front of my mouth so it was critical that it was done right. They are funny, professional, outstanding, and kind.
in Arvada, CO |
Highly recommend this office! Bre works the front desk and is always cheerful. She's great at remembering the personal things about me and asks about my kids, which makes me feel important. Jane is my hygienist and I've learned so much from her! I love the time she takes to explain what she's doing, why, and how I can improve my home cleanings. Aldo repaired a chipped tooth. I've never seen such perfection! Dr Appleby had such patience answering all 100 q's my 7 yo had. This group is amazing! Ty
in Wheat Ridge, CO |
Dr. Wachuta was recommended by a friend. His Wheat Ridge office was convenient and his treatment prices were competitive. My first appointment was the most thorough exam and cleaning I?ve ever experienced. I received a written and verbal recommendation for treatment complete with estimated cost. What I appreciate about this dental practice is the personal and courteous way I was treated by Dr. Wachuta and his exceptional staff - Bre, Aldo, Jane and Liz. Great dental office
in Littleton, CO |
I've been a patient of Dr. Wachuta's for 18 years which speaks volumes for how I feel about him and his staff. He is an excellent dentist who is caring, gentle, honest and accommodating to my needs. I have had several fillings, crowns and root canals performed by him and all these experiences have been A+. I highly recommend this practice for your dental needs. No one looks forward to going to the dentist but Dr. Wachuta and his staff make it as pleasant an experience as possible.
in Wheat Ridge, CO |
This office is pleasant and all the staff are friendly and caring. I originally found Dr. Wachuta on Healthgrades.com but when I arrived saw another dentist, Dr. Appleby. I was a little disappointed since I had done my research on Dr.Wachuta . However, the care Dr. Appleby provided was good for several minor issues and she was very pleasant. I felt comfortable there and all the staff - dental hygienist, dental assistants, and front desk person - were very competent and efficient.
in Evergreen, CO |
I have been with Dr. Wachuta for over 25 years and have always been completely satisfied. I have had Maria as my hygienist for many years and would strongly recommend you ask for her. She not only executes all of her procedures quickly and expertly but is non-judgemental and quick to spot issues before they become dental problems. Stan Slowik
in Arvada, CO |
Been with Dr. Wachuta for a long time. Always have received top service. Bre in the Wheatridge office is a fantastic advocate for you when dealing with dental insurance.

The office is nice and clean. The doctors are nice, clean,and gentle. Bri at the front desk is great. She worked with my insurance company to get as much dental work as possible I've found a dentist for life and recommend Dr Wachuta to everyone
