Why You Should Visit Treasured Teeth

When choosing your pediatric dentist in Thornton, CO, you want a practice that is both experienced and specially motivated to accommodate children.

A Calming Environment: We know many children are nervous about visiting the dentist, which is why we take special care to assure our office is welcoming and fun for children. The pirate theme helps engage their imagination, and we even have a large pirate ship playhouse to make them feel comfortable like they do at school. They will be greeted with a smile and taken care of during their whole visit.

Complete Pediatric Dentistry: We offer a variety of preventive and restorative services in order to assure your child’s dental health. Every child will be given oral exam so we can evaluate what is the best solution for their smile as they develop. We can provide them with everything from a routine cleaning to dental crowns and space maintainers to assure their teeth stay healthy and beautiful. We can also work with you to assure that they develop and sustain a home routine that will help stop many dental issues before they even start.

Dental Insurance: In order to accommodate all the patients we can, we are happy to accept dental insurance from all major providers. We will even file your claim for you. We also can help Medicaid and CHP+ patients.

Referral Rewards: If you enjoy your visit to Treasured Teeth so much that you refer a friend and their family to us, we will give you either a $20 gift card to a local business or a $20 credit to your account at Treasured Teeth. We love to help people, so you should be rewarded if you choose to tell more patients about us.

We know Treasured Teeth can help your children keep smiling for years, so come see us today.
