It has been a real blessing being referred to Dr. Carlson a couple years ago. I have had a pretty challenged diagnosis of gum disease. Mr. Carlson practices with the most innovative approach in the gum arena as well as most all other areas of your dental needs. In my situation, he has been practicing laser surgery on my gums which is non-invasive and a way to avoid gum graft surgery (is invasive and is likely to be much more expensive). Almost all my gum pockets that were up to between 5 and 9mm have all gone down to 1's, 2's and 3's (except for a few 4's that are still healing). The success of this procedure has been unimaginable and quite frankly, a miracle! The beauty of having Mr. Carlson a one stop doc is beneficial because the cost can be lower than going to a referred specialist (outside hygenists etc.), you will know you're getting the best treatment in the Denver Metro area. Dr. Carlson is honest and is a specialist above and beyond other dentists out there (cleanings, root canals etc)! If anyone has a need for an outstanding dentist, Dr. Carlson is a leader in the field! No need to research any further!

My wife sent me to Dr. Carlson. She has been a patient for years anf I can see why. Dr.Carlson and his staff are amazing. They take the time to explain things and never leave questions unanswered. It is like visiting an old friend when you walk in. The equipment is state of the art and the doctor is very conservative. I know I am in good hands and would recommend them to anyone who will listen!

I have had braces, cavities, cosmetic dentistry and root canals under Dr. Carlson and would highly recommend him. I am an ENT doctor and this is the man I recommend to my patients as well as other doctors who are looking for a great dentist. His bed side manner is second to none. Very helpful office staff. I cant say enough good about this dentist. Truly one of the greats!!

About Hygienist: I have regular cleanings and recommend Dr. Carlson's hygienist fully. Very thorough and gentle

I came to Dr. Carlson after having a couple of horrible experiences with the last several dentists I tried. He has renewed my faith that are still good dentists around. He listens to you, he discusses and explains procedures and/or options. Most importantly he actually cares about you and is concerned for your well being. I had a tumor in my jaw that was surgically removed and that took away a lot of my jaw bone and teeth. This type of tumor is recurring and has to been kept watch on. He is the first dentist who has actually caught one of them. In the past I have found them myself and the other dentists told me not to worry it was scar tissue or I was being paranoid even though I have a history or the tumor recurring. Dr. Carlson takes you seriously and has the calmest kindest personality.

Very BAD experience with Dr. Carlson!! Be really careful on your bill if your insurance is out of network! Even the front desk staff told you it's in network, call your insurance to make sure because they might tell you yes but apparently is NOT!! I did root canal treatment and they told me to pay a specific amount........After 2 month, they bill me another huge amount!! Moreover, hundreds of dollars above the proposal without any emergency treatment!! The worst part is they didn't inform me anything during my 2-month visits (no joking)!! Other than the costs, I've been there so many time to adjust my crown because the lab they choose does not do the crown well. As a result, I have to take off work and run back and forth, but didn't get what I expect. Don't waste your money and time, NOT worth at all!!!

Dr. carlson is and amazing man, he has always been friendly and treats you well. I hate going to get my teath clean but when i go to him he makes it so much better. He doesnt try to bull shit you or con you into anything, and he is honestly a great guy. i would recommend him for anyone in the area.

About Hygienist: his hygienists are nice and when some were new to the job they take it slow to be sure not to hurt you and make it as painless as possible. whoever says that Dr. carlson isn't god has a poor judgment of people and i dont think they understsand how hard the job can be.

Dr. Carlson often tries to sale unnecessary things or procedures (for example: special mouth guard, special mouth wash, unnecessary tooth filling, cancer screening, etc), and he did that enough where I had to say no more than once at times. One unnecessary screen test was done without my approval, and I received a bill for it. When I told him I didn't owe the bill since I didn't agree with the service, he started sending me collection threats with the amount owed. He didn't disagree with my unapproval to the service, but he said that he "requires" all his patients as if that is a mandatory. He also said the reason for the test was because many deaths occur because of the particular cancer. He also refuses to release my x-rays (which was already paid for by my insurance). I recently offered to pay 1/2 of the bill, which I originally disagreed to but because of the fact that I wanted to at least get my x-rays for my new dentist (this was offered via my mediator BBB).

About Hygienist: I do however think his previous hygienist (no longer with this dentist) was excellent. Both communicated and serviced her patients well. I even sent a kudos letter to the dentist appraising her excellence.
