Dental Health

Cosmetic Dentist Serving Lakewood, Denver, Golden & Nearby Colorado


Experiencing multiple dental problems can be overwhelming. You may feel embarrassed to smile, in addition to dealing with physical symptoms of dental problems. Fortunately, full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive approach to rejuvenating vulnerable and damaged teeth and gums. Dr. Scott Greenhalgh has been performing full mouth reconstructions for many years, and he can discuss all of the options with you so you can make decisions about what to do next.

I want to provide some information about the current advisories for our dental practice.

Health officals have requested that dental offices in Colorado close for a period of three weeks. Therefore, IF you have a future dental appointment with either Dr Greenhalgh or our dental hygienists, they are CANCELLED. We will be contacting you about re-scheduling those appointments to a future date.

If you're not one of the 2-3% of people who has actually used their benefits, you should schedule an appointment immediately. You're paying insurance premiums (even if they are split with your employer). You may as well use the benefits that you've paid for.

Halloween is just a few days away. If you have young children, they are most likely excited about putting on their costume and going trick-or-treating on Thursday. This Halloween ritual is a favorite for many kids, and for good reason. What can be better than coming home with a giant bucket of candy? There’s nothing wrong with letting your kids enjoy some Halloween candy, but it’s important to have a plan in place for making sure these sweet treats don’t cause cavities.

Seeing a dentist for regular checkups is key to living a healthy life, but not for the reason you may think. Did you know that your dentist does more than keep your teeth clean? They help keep your mouth cancer-free.

Oral cancer affects more than 50,000 Americans per year. Oral cancer screenings as part of your routine dental appointments are your best defense against this disease.

Your Best Dental FlossEveryone knows you are supposed to floss every day, but a surprising number of people still haven’t incorporated flossing into their daily dental hygiene routine. With Halloween upon us and the winter food holidays fast approaching, it’s the perfect time of year to start flossing to thoroughly clean your mouth of food debris and plaque build up.
