Kids Like Us, Parents Love Us

I couldn’t have been more happy with my pick of Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry! My daughter (a little over 2) needed a dentist to go to. Taking her for her first dentist visit I was a little nervous; being an adult who still gets nervous going to my own doctors visits I didn’t want to project this feeling/vibe onto my daughter. Immediately upon entering I felt better and the staff and Dr. Patrick were very kind and helped put me and my daughter at ease. They talked to us to get to know us, the staff gave my daughter toys and stuffed animals to play with, there were bubbles to look at, I started to see my daughter get comfortable. As a parent I was very impressed with their knowledge of kids, their understanding and tolerance of crying, their technique to brush my 2 year olds teeth (when she puts up a fight for me), and the time the Dr gave us. As a 1st grade teacher I was impressed with their sensory room for kids with special needs, and other kids (including my daughter), their kid friendly environment and timing, and their knowledge they share with kids and classrooms throughout the community. I give them 2 thumbs up and 5 stars! Thank you Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry!

What an amazing experience! I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Patrick and his wonderful staff today after bringing in my 4 and 7-year-old daughters. From the beginning, I had a personalized experience that can so often be missing in dental/medical offices today. Having grown up working in a pediatric dental office (my father was a pediatric dentist) and being a dentist myself, I can tell you from both a personal and professional standpoint that this is exactly the type of pediatric dentist you want your children to see. Kind, caring, detail oriented and GREAT with my children. It isn’t very often that you meet a pediatric dentist who isn’t only great at what they do, but also honest and caring. I am very excited to have found such a wonderful office where my children can have their dental needs met for years to come! Thank you Dr. Patrick!

We have a 1 year old and didn’t know what to expect with his 1st dental visit. Dr. Bowman was wonderful. Our son is often nervous around strangers but was very comfortable and offering up plenty of smiles. In addition to the exam we got some great information about staring off his dental health strong and will be sure to head back every 6 months! The location is great for our lives and the hours of operation also fit well into our schedule as working parents. The entire staff was very friendly and you can tell they really have a focus on children and their wellbeing.

I was excited to see a brand new pediatric dental practice open in our neighborhood and hoped that it would be a good fit for my 3 y/o. She had her first visit on Saturday (convenient hours!) and she loved it. She actually didn't want to leave. We were so warmly welcomed and got a tour of the the new place before the appointment. They are up and running, but still working on decor and some other design aspects. Everyone was so patient and kind with my daughter and Dr. Patrick is very thorough and knowledgeable. My daughter was able to watch some kid friendly videos during her cleaning and the dental hygienist was great with her. I am so pleased to have this practice in our neighborhood, but would also be willing to commute here as it's conveniently located off I-25.

M. Barham

We brought our daughter in for her first-ever dentist visit. She did great, thanks to Dr. Patrick and his the super patient and friendly staff. From check-in to departure, the appointment ran smoothly and on-time. Everyone spent ample time with us, explaining all the ins and outs of dental care for a toddler, and giving us tips to keep her healthy. They took every Covid-related precaution, so we were comfortable on that front, too. Loved the bright and cherry space; parking was easy. Super excited they're in the neighborhood!

M. Andrews

My 2 and 1/2 year old son had a great experience with Dr. Bowman and the staff. They put him at ease and made him feel safe and welcome. I definitely recommend Wash Park Dentistry.

K. Koczman

What a great experience! Love the way these guys are so focused on kids and making sure they have a good experience! We started to take our 1 year old for his first dental visit to a different family practice and I felt so uncomfortable so I left. Heidi at Wash Park Ped Dentist made a quick appointment for us a couple days later and I'm soooo glad we switched. Victoria, the hygienist, was attentive to our little one and helped keep him entertained so I could speak with the dentist and learn how to brush his teeth. Can't say enough amazing things about how we were treated here!

J. L. Duvall

It took us a long time to find a dental practice that we loved, but it was worth the wait. We couldn't be more impressed with the care we receive at Wash Park Pediatric Denistry. My older girls both had traumatic experiences at the dentist when they were younger, and so it was important to find a provider who was kind, compassionate, and gentle. Dr. Patrick is all that and more. He does a great job of relating to the kids AND expaining what's going on to parents. The office is warm and welcoming. We feel like we are truly part of the community...and not just another patient. I can't recommend them enough!

M. N. Moutrie

We loved our experience at this office! Everyone was so friendly, calming, and thorough throughout both visits we have had. The office was very clean and well though out! So glad we found you wash park!

Frequently Asked Questions

Before you give us a call and schedule an appointment, you may have questions about our practice or about your child’s dental health. To help you feel comfortable in your choice, here are some of our responses to common questions parents have asked us. Just remember that we’ll be happy to answer your questions during your child’s visit as well!

Why Is Dental Health Important for Kids to Learn Early?

Many adults who choose not to go to the dentist because of negative experiences in the past can develop fear. Others did not gain the necessary skills to keep their smile healthy and suffer from tooth pain and other problems. When children learn young about how to properly care for their teeth and have good experiences, they are more likely to continue these healthy habits into adulthood. As a result, they can preserve their natural teeth and enjoy a stronger, more brilliant smile!

What Is the Best Way to Find a Pediatric Dentist in Denver?

Would you take your child to a pediatrician or a general family doctor? Just as a pediatrician undergoes special training, a pediatric dentist dedicates three additional years to become board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, focusing exclusively on dental issues that infants, toddlers, children, and teens may experience. This expertise centers not only on clinical treatment for growing smiles but also on creating an uplifting, educational environment for younger patients and those with high/low support. As a result, if you want your child to have positive early dental experiences, Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry has the perfect setup!

What Are the Best Ways to Prevent Dental Emergencies for My Child?

At-home care plays a huge role in keeping your child’s smile protected from cavities, but a dental appointment every six months is just as important! Not only will we make sure your child’s teeth and jaw are developing properly, but we’ll also remove any plaque missed in brushing and flossing. We can also actively prevent cavities through fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and other treatments. If your child is involved in potentially risky activities, such as football, hockey, or even soccer, we can also provide a custom mouthguard for ideal protection from dental injuries.

Why Is It Important to Treat a Lip or Tongue Tie?

If you’re trying to nurse a baby with a lip or tongue tie, you are probably already encountering difficulty, but if the issue isn’t resolved with a frenectomy, a lip or tongue tie can make eating solid foods, learning to talk, and getting quality sleep much more challenging later in life as well. Through a simple procedure that takes only a couple of minutes, we can give your child better oral function by improving the tongue’s range of motion. Needless to say, if your child has a restrictive tie, a frenectomy can significantly help in breastfeeding and in your baby’s development.

Should I Bring My Teenager to Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry?

Absolutely! We specialize in serving young patients from infancy clear until the age of 18, when most people are done in their oral development. Until that age, our team can care for your child’s growing smile with instructions for how to take care of their teeth and gums, orthodontic treatment to give them a strong and beautiful bite, and wisdom tooth extractions in a low-stress environment where their comfort comes first.
