"The Best Dentist I've Ever Been To." 5 Star Google Review


Yodi Mutty

10/10, would recommend to everyone. Certainly the best dentist I've ever been to. They were able to book me a next day appointment when I chipped my front tooth and fixed it up in less than 45 minutes from walking through the door for the first time. More recently, I called about a throbbing tooth, and they had me in the office within 20 minutes, and a referral to a specialist within 2 hours. They were unbelievably accommodating, and the entire staff is wonderful. Also, there's sometimes pictures of cute animals up on the screens in the office, so that's always a plus.

What a great office! Where to start? From the well-run and friendly office, to the super kind office manager Nathan, and Dr. Gillette's truly excellent chair side manner and patient education skills I am extremely impressed and happy to be a new patient here. Dr. Gillette clearly focuses on minimizing the stress and anxiety most folks feel at the dentist's office. Highly recommend.

Featured Services

Dental Crowns

Trauma or infection can cause broken or decayed teeth, which can be incredibly painful and make chewing and speaking difficult. Dr. Christopher Gillette in Arvada, CO, can repair and protect compromised teeth in a single appointment with a dental crown made using our in-office CEREC system. A dental crown crafted at our practice can prevent the need for extraction by strengthening a tooth following root canal therapy. They can also hide imperfections such as intrinsic stains when veneers and dental bonding do not provide enough coverage.

Dental Bridges

Missing teeth make everyday tasks such as eating and speaking challenging. Tooth loss can occur as a result of trauma, gum disease, or untreated decay, and can cause you to feel self-conscious about the appearance of your smile. A dental bridge from our Arvada, CO, dentist can improve your quality of life by renewing your ability to chew and speak properly. Constructed of state-of-the-art medical-grade ceramics, a dental bridge is custom-made to blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. This solution can restore the balance and function of your smile.

Dental Implants

Missing teeth have a significant impact on your overall health and wellbeing. Dental roots do more than just hold a tooth in place - they help retain bone tissue. When a tooth is lost, the bone tissue begins to recede. Left untreated, this can cause the surrounding teeth to shift, leading to an aged appearance and further tooth loss. Dental implants replace tooth roots to support restorations such as bridges, crowns, and dentures while providing the stimulation needed to stop bone atrophy.

Explore Dental Implants


All-on-4 implants provide a solution for those who may not qualify for traditional dental implants due to bone atrophy. All-on-4 uses four strategically placed implant posts to maximize contact with existing bone tissue, often eliminating the need for a bone graft. Once in place, these implants can immediately support a full denture. This procedure can usually be completed in one visit to our Arvada, CO, practice, and at a lower cost than traditional implant procedures.

Explore All-on-4


Teeth that are chipped, slightly crooked, worn, or misshapen may cause you to hide your smile out of feelings of self-consciousness. Dr. Gillette can conceal these imperfections with porcelain veneers. These ultra-thin, custom-crafted porcelain shells are engineered to mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel, and are color-matched to your surrounding teeth. The smile enhancement provided by veneers can last 10 years or more with proper care. We also offer LUMINEERS®, a type of veneer that often requires no alteration of dental tissue.

Explore Veneers


Our Arvada, CO, dentistry practice offers sedation dentistry to patients who are anxious or have special needs that make sitting for long periods difficult. We provide nitrous oxide (a mild sedative), as well as deeper relaxation through oral conscious sedation and IV sedation. Do not let a fear of the dentist keep you from maintaining good oral health. Our compassionate team is here to help you receive the care you need in absolute comfort.

"​Dr. Gillette Saved My Teeth." 5-Star Google Reviews

OMG, Dr. Gillette SAVED MY TEETH. I had a horrific fall on my face while shoveling snow at my Opa’s house (I was back visiting for his funeral) and I was in a panic because I needed to get my mouth fixed before flying back home to Germany. Dr. Gillette’s staff was able to find me a same-day appointment and got my knocked back front tooth back in place to heal properly. Plus, they gave a detailed care plan so I could easily transition back to care in Germany. They were so considerate of my mangled lip and really saved the day! Best dentist I’ve ever been to!

I have been a patient of certain other "dental office chains" for many years and they have made me afraid of dental office visits due to multiple issues so I knew my teeth were in need of work. The minute I called to make the appointment at ward rd dental I knew they were different. I went in first for a cleaning and was shocked by the kindness and gentleness of all involved despite my constant fear and nervousness for the pain to start which never did. I came back to have my teeth worked on the next month and they were able to numb my mouth with 1 shot which I never felt which was so different from the 10+ shots that I was used too( that never are able to get me totally numb,) I was able to recieve 2+ hours of dental work with that and NO PAIN! I cant recommend Dr. Gillette enough!

Why It's Important to See a Dentist Regularly

Dental care involves a lot more than just aesthetics. It's important to see a dentist regularly so he or she can check for issues you may not notice during your daily dental hygiene routine. Cavities, disease, and oral cancer can be virtually impossible to notice on your own. Left untreated, diseases or infections of the mouth can spread to other parts of the body and contribute to serious health concerns.

During a routine dental checkup at our office in Arvada, CO, our dental hygienists can remove plaque and tartar from your teeth that can't be addressed with simple brushing or flossing alone. During your visit with our dentist, he will take x-rays so he can make a comprehensive assessment of the state of your smile and detect any disease or other issues in the earliest stages. We only use digital x-ray technology, which is far safer and more efficient than analog technology.

Meanwhile, it is important to expose children to dentistry early in life so their oral health can receive the necessary attention and so that they aren't uncomfortable with dental care in the future. We accept patients of all ages and take special care to ensure the comfort of little ones. We recommend scheduling your child's first appointment around their first birthday or as soon as their first tooth erupts. 

State-of-the-Art Technology & Compassionate Care Means Less Time at the Dentist

Our Arvada, CO, dentist performs the latest techniques using high-tech tools so that you and your family can experience optimal oral health. By utilizing the best of modern technology, we can provide you with top-quality care in far less time so that you can get on with your busy schedule rather than spending time in the dentist's chair.

I had a great experience at Ward Road Dental and would highly recommend them for your dental needs. The staff was welcoming and the office was inviting and clean. Nathan, the office manager, was friendly and helped make the scheduling and new client paperwork quick and easy. My hygienist, Lexi, did a great job using modern equipment. Dr. Gillette was really nice and professional. He was not at all rushed during the exam and allowed plenty of time to answer my questions. Overall great experience and I’m happy to have found my new dentist!

Excellent atmosphere, great staff. We've brought our son with cerebral palsy and quadriplegia to Dr. Gillette since he took over Ward Road Dental. His sure hand and easy demeanor has meant flawless dental care for him, when many other dentists won't take a patient on like him (spastic, involuntary movements). All the staff are wonderful with him. Our son doesn't hesitate to go to the dentist, and does it with a big smile! Thank you for caring and the great service you provide.
