Why did you become a orthodontist?
I became an orthodontist because I truly love helping people, and improving smiles is a great way for me to do that. The mouth is just one small part of our bodies, but it can have such a huge effect on our lives. I feel lucky to spend each day interacting with my patients and helping them achieve a smile that they can wear proudly.
Interesting Facts

I grew up in upstate New York with a lot of that time spent in Buffalo, NY - Go Bills! I moved to Colorado two years ago because I love to ski, snowshoe, hike, camp, and do lots of outdoor activities, and the Rocky Mountains are the best place to do that. My yellow lab tucker likes to join me for as many of these adventures as he can.

Why did you become a optometrist?
When I was 10 my family decided to take an international vacation to my parents' home country. We grew up in an underprivileged community, therefore access to vision care was not easy. I left my glasses at home as they were too expensive to risk replacing. I realized this was a mistake as we traveled for 2 months and I could not visualize anything past my arm. This immediately sparked the idea of pursuing a career in vision. Today I practice as a pediatric optometrist.
Interesting Facts

I grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and played Lacrosse. I love to travel during my off-time and Colorado ended up being one of my favorite places. To escape the heat, I left Florida for more beautiful weather. When I'm not traveling, I spend a great deal of my time at home spoiling my Corgi. My favorite hobby is cooking cuisines from different countries. Perhaps I may open a restaurant in the future?

I take my daughters here for their vision and they’re always very nice. I went today to the Ortho side and they were amazing. They let us know everything they were doing, explaining everything step by step and answered any questions that I had.

Kid's Dentist Denver

We are experts in providing high-quality, affordable dental care for kids in Denver. A child’s first dentist visit should happen after their first tooth emerges or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. Starting healthy oral care habits early in life prepares your child for the best oral and overall health.

Dental Cleanings

Even with regular brushing at home, teeth still need professional dental cleanings. During dental cleanings, we use special tools and skills to clear plaque away from the spots that are difficult to reach. We check for early signs of tooth decay to identify and treat any issues that arise before they become a problem. If your child is at an elevated risk for tooth decay, they can benefit from fluoride treatments and sealants that will protect and maintain the strength of their teeth.

Dental X-Rays

Dental x-rays are important tools that dentists use to monitor oral development and check for any potential diseases or decay that can impact your child’s dental health. With dental x-rays, dentists can see areas of the teeth that are invisible during dental cleanings.

Fluoride Treatment

Your teeth need vitamins, and fluoride gives your teeth the nutrients they need to stay healthy! Fluoride is a natural mineral that protects teeth from decay and helps teeth stay strong. During regular dental visits, we use a tiny paintbrush to apply a concentrated fluoride varnish directly onto tooth/teeth surfaces that need protection. Fluoride treatments are an important part of healthy dental hygiene, and they are highly beneficial throughout a child’s life.

Cavities & Fillings

For toddlers and children, the most basic form of tooth decay is cavities. A cavity develops when a buildup of plaque eats at the tooth enamel and creates a hole in the tooth. Sometimes cavities are hard to prevent. Proper dental hygiene, a healthy diet, and biannual dental cleanings are the best defense against plaque buildup and cavities. When a cavity is detected, the dentist will remove the decay and fill in the hole with a filling.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants protect teeth against harmful bacteria that can lead to tooth decay. Even with excellent oral hygiene, the grooves on the tops of molars are vulnerable to collections of food and bacteria. Dental sealants provide an extra layer of protection for the teeth, and they are an important part of oral care.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns top damaged teeth that need to be restored to their correct size and shape. When a filling is not enough to restore a tooth that is decayed or compromised, dental crowns save the day. It only takes a single appointment to apply a dental crown, and the visit does involve some form of anesthetic.

Tooth Extraction

Sometimes teeth need to be extracted. If a tooth is extensively damaged or decayed it may need to be pulled out. Additionally, tooth extraction may be necessary if stubborn baby teeth need help coming out, or if room needs to be made in the mouth in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

Dental Sedation Options

With every dental visit and procedure, we want to minimize potential distress and keep kids calm and comfortable. To ease the process of specific dental procedures, we give kids dental sedation. Select locations provide dental sedation options, and a referral is required.

Chipped Tooth Care

Sometimes teeth accidentally get chipped or broken during play. Thankfully, we have ways to fix them! If your child has a broken tooth, it is important that you contact your dentist immediately. At the emergency visit, the dentist will examine the child’s mouth. In specific circumstances, the tooth fragment can be reattached. If you are able to locate the chipped tooth fragment, put it in a bag with saline or water and bring it with you to the dentist's office. If you can’t find the tooth fragment, there are additional ways to repair the tooth for a happy and healthy smile.

We look forward to being your kid's dentist Denver!


Good news for kids and families! Medicaid and most dental insurance plans cover two dental cleanings and checkups per year. Regular visits are important for maintaining oral health. Book an appointment with us for your child today!

Vision Services

We want your child’s future to be clear!

Regular eye exams are an essential way to prepare babies, kids, and teens for educational, social, and developmental success. Vision issues can impact the way a child interacts with school, sports, their peers, and daily activities. A vision check-up is a great way to make sure your child is prepared for success.


If your child has a hard time focusing on things far far away, they may have Myopia. Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a refractive disorder that makes it difficult to see objects in the distance, but it is easy to see things up close. The symptoms can include:

  • Blurred vision when looking at objects at a distance

  • Squinting

  • Eyestrain

  • Eye fatigue when looking at objects far away

In addition to causing physical issues, nearsightedness can also impact a child’s safety and performance in school. Eyeglasses, contact lenses, or eye surgery can be used to fix nearsightedness. Take your child to routine eye exams to detect potential issues and help them stay healthy.


Are things too close for comfort? If so, then your child may have Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness. Hyperopia is a common condition that makes objects far away easier to see than objects up close. With farsightedness, the light rays in the eyes focus behind the surface of the retina instead of directly on the retina, which makes close-up objects blurry. The symptoms may include:

  • Blurred vision

  • Trouble focusing on things close by

  • Eyestrain

  • Eye fatigue

  • Headaches when performing tasks close-up

Farsightedness can impact self-esteem and educational capabilities. Thankfully it is easy to correct with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery. Take your kid for a vision exam to make sure they are prepared for success!


Astigmatism is a common condition that causes objects both near and far to appear blurry. With astigmatism, your eye isn’t able to focus because it is not completely round. In kids, astigmatism can be difficult to diagnose because they perceive the blurriness as normal. The symptoms include:

  • Blurred Vision

  • Distorted Vision

  • Eyestrain

  • Headaches

Like other common eye issues, astigmatism can impact safety and school performance. Thankfully it can be treated with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery. Make an appointment for an eye exam to make sure your child’s eyes are healthy and their vision is clear!

Lazy Eye

A lazy or wandering eye is called Amblyopia. In amblyopia, one eye underperforms because it does not properly reflect light. When a child has a lazy eye, their body follows the direction of the normally performing eye which can impact their ability to perceive depth. Symptoms may include:

  • Issues with depth perception

  • Frequently squinting or shutting one eye

  • Tilting head to focus

Early detection is important for the most effective and simple treatment. To set your child up for success, schedule a routine eye exam today!

Cross Eyes

Cross eyes, or strabismus, is a common eye condition in which the eyes are not always aligned. With strabismus, the eyes look in different directions because the eye muscles are out of sync. If left unaddressed, strabismus can lead to a lazy eye or cause other types of vision problems. There are a few different treatment options, and your provider can find the best one for you.

Fashionable Frames Denver

For many parents, it is a struggle to get their children to wear eyeglasses. We carry over 350 Medicaid-approved frames to ensure your child can find the perfect pair to suit their age, size, fashion, and lifestyle. We want every child to feel cool, confident, and comfortable when wearing eyeglasses!

Insurance Options Denver

We don’t want any child to struggle with learning challenges that are caused by undetected vision problems. If your child is experiencing vision issues, we can help. We accept Medicaid and most insurance plans so that your child can have regular vision check-ups and glasses at little or no cost to you.

Orthodontic Services

To fix jaw alignment and teeth spacing, orthodontic braces are a great solution! Braces offer many positive side effects. They can boost your child or teen’s confidence and self-esteem, and they improve overall oral health, including:

  • Improve ability to chew food

  • Alleviate speech impairment

  • Make brushing, cleaning, and flossing teeth easier

  • Reduce the risk of cavities and periodontal disease

  • Reduce the occurrence of grinding and chipping teeth

  • Reduce the risk of injury from protruding teeth

Braces can lay the foundation for a lifetime of improved oral health and help you and your children look their best!

Finding the Right Braces

To create a perfect smile, the first step is to find the right braces. Based on your treatment plan, cost, and desired appearance, we can help you choose the right type of braces. There are several different types of braces to choose from:

  • Traditional Metal Braces are the most common type of braces, particularly for kids and teens. They are affordable and highly effective. Orthodontists can easily and accurately adjust metal braces during monthly visits. Kids and teens get to choose fun elastic band colors to achieve a look they love!

  • Ceramic or Porcelain Braces function similarly to metal braces, but the brackets and wires are designed to be less noticeable. The brackets and wires are colored to blend in with the teeth. These braces are more expensive than metal braces, and they require extra cleaning to prevent discoloration. If you are looking for a less noticeable orthodontic treatment, ceramic or porcelain braces may be a great option for you.

  • Removable Aligners are a popular choice. This solution consists of transparent trays that rest on top of teeth and can be removed for meal times and other activities. Removable aligners are more expensive than metal braces, and they are not designed to correct significant bite problems. They are not usually recommended for children because they require an additional level of personal responsibility. If you are looking for a less noticeable way to correct alignment issues, and you keep up with the required care, this solution may be right for you.

Affordable Braces

Medicaid and other insurance plans recognize the importance of braces for oral health. Depending on your orthodontic needs and insurance plan, your provider may potentially cover the entire cost of orthodontic treatment. After an orthodontic evaluation, Medicaid will determine coverage. If you have private insurance, you need to contact your insurance provider to learn about your orthodontic coverage options.

If you do not have insurance, don’t worry! For adults and children who do not have insurance coverage, we offer a variety of affordable payment plans. Our orthodontic coordinators can work with you to review the options and determine a plan that works for you and your family.

Orthodontic Evaluations

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child is screened before they turn seven. By their seventh birthday, it will be clear whether or not your child has any jaw alignment problems, overcrowding, overbite or underbite, crossbite, or other orthodontic issues that may impact their mouth. An early orthodontic evaluation is important because it is the best way to quickly determine if braces are needed and choose the best treatment plan.
