quote-blue-leftI’ve been a patient of Dr. Gates for over 20 years.

You have a great view of the Flatirons from your dental chair, and can imagine the Atomic Clock at NIST, just across Broadway, keeping the world in time, while Dr. Gates and his team attend to your dental cares.

If you are accepted as a patient, you will have found one of the very finest dental surgeons and prosthodontists, practicing on a world-class level of skill, care, and attention to his patients.

They take some insurance plans, but expect payment at the time of service. Hesitate to quibble over pricing, as you will be getting the very best of personal care, from some of the best folks you will ever meet, for work that will last a very long time.

Christy is a great communicator and will handle your questions, scheduling, and payments with confidence and detail.

Essie is both very kind, and very skilled, as your dental hygienist.

Dental assistant Tiffany rounds out this team of professionals. Right there with what is needed, and herself a confident presence.

Compassionate, caring, thoughtful, smart. All with a great sense of humor.

If you find your path to Dr. Gate’s practice, you will surely be grateful you found him, and his team.

quote-blue-leftDear Dr. Gates,

40th anniversaryI just want to say thank you again for making my smile so nice. I knew I looked a lot better, but I did not really see it until our son took this picture last Friday at the Flagstaff House. I have received so many compliments. And the best part is, that everything fits so well.

Thank you, thank you!

quote-blue-leftI have been seeing Dr. Gates for my dental care for over 20 years. During this time I have dealt with several challenging dental issues, including a problematic and painful bite alignment, and Dr. Gates is the only one that has been able to resolve these issues. As an engineer, I appreciate the analytical approach and attention to detail that Dr. Gates has shown in addressing my bite and other dental issues. Dr. Gates has also installed numerous crowns for me over the past 20 years – the workmanship is excellent and I have not had to have any of them replaced. The office staff, hygienist and dental assistants are always friendly, attentive and courteous, and the view from his dental chairs is second to none! Finally, Dr. Gates and his staff are compassionate and caring, and frequently participate in mission trips to remote areas where they provide voluntary dental services to those who would otherwise have none. I highly recommend Dr. Gates and his staff to anyone, particularly individuals with challenging bite or reconstructive dental needs.

quote-blue-leftAs a very satisfied patient of Dr. Gates, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the way I was treated by Dr. Gates and his staff. The whole process was explained to me beforehand and he gave me several options in which I opted for all new bottom teeth held in with 6 implants. I couldn’t be happier with the results. It is very rare to find such high standards of sincerity and trustworthiness as I received by Dr. Gates’ office. My new teeth give me new confidence because I didn’t want the stigma of false teeth that might make me feel old. Dr. Gates was recommended to me by a family member who is a dental hygienist in a different state who said his reputation was highly respected by other dentist, so I took her advice and went with Dr. Gates. In addition, the personalized attention I received was something you wouldn’t get from one of those mass production dental offices, so I say THANK YOU… Dr. Gates and Staff.

quote-blue-leftI was referred to Dr.Gates from my periodontist. I was dissatisfied with the color of my teeth and wanted to whiten my smile. After my first appointment I felt very comfortable and knew I was in good hands. Throughout the process the staff was outstanding in every way and I came to understand that Dr. Gates was a perfectionist. They did a custom color crown on my front tooth (#9) and it came out perfect. I am so happy with the results. I smile all the time now. People I work with have already commented that I am always smiling. I understand why people come from all over to work with Dr. Gates. He truly is the best there is! Dr. Gates, Thanks again to you and your staff!

quote-blue-leftI have been a patient at Dr.Gates office since 5/2011. I have been under his care for a full mouth rehabilitation/restoration. This involved the crowns for 9 implants as well as crowning of 7 of my own teeth. He came highly recommended to me by both my dentist and periodontist. Losing many teeth, bone grafting, wearing a temporary partial were all very traumatic to me. My biggest fear was living the rest of my life with big “chicklet teeth”! OR 20 year-old teeth in a middle age mouth! OR living with ill-fitting teeth making eating and chewing difficult! So much time was spent by Dr. Gates and the staff striving for perfection. Hours were spent in the chair. I was made as comfortable as possible. Excellent nerve blocks were placed leaving me pain free during the procedures. Follow up phone calls were made to check on my well-being. Never once did I leave the office looking like a freak! Temporary crowns looked almost as good as the final product. The office staff, including receptionist/scheduler and dental assistants were all professional and kind. Every effort was made to accommodate my busy work schedule, with multiple lengthy appointments. The dental assistants were very skilled in their role. They were always aware of the needs of the patient stopping for rest periods, bathroom breaks, and hydration. They functioned as cheerleaders to get you through the process. Without hesitation, I would recommend Dr. Gates and his office staff for care.
