Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Elizabeth J. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


The team was wonderful for my first visit. I was able to complete all of my forms online before arrival. I was seated in my chair in time for my appointment, which was wonderful. Then onto photos, x-rays, review of my dental health and a treatment plan. Everything was thorough, clearly explained, and the cost estimates were reviewed with up front. During the cleaning the hygienist was careful to check in to ensure I was comfortable. She scheduled all of my follow-up appointments quickly, efficiently, and emailed my calendar reservations. I really appreciated the care, compassion, kindness, conversation and although I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’m excited to go back for more; I am confident that I will be in good hands. After two disappointing and painful experiences with dentists in downtown Denver, I’m so pleased to have found a team of caring professionals who will look after my teeth.

Everyone at this office is wonderful and treats you like family. Although it’s a very chill and mom and pop vibe, the Doctors and hygienists are sharp and utilize the latest technology. Plus, I’m pretty sure there was not a germ left in my mouth after Debbie went after every nook and cranny. She gave me a weighted blanket to keep me warm and is literally the nicest person you could know.

I’m a new patient here, but with my familiar and beloved dental team. This facility has modern equipment for improving preventative care; photography to show you what they see, I.e. back molars, condition of fillings etc.,laser therapy to prevent bacteria from forming for several months between visits, and offers fluoride application to protect enamel. Very up to date with text and email options for reminders and to communicate.

Fermelia Dental was great! As a new patient I was so impressed with how thorough they were. The staff is very friendly and during the appointment I was consistently asked about my comfort which made me feel like they really care. Christina, one of the hygienists and Dr. Fermelia explained everything really well and made sure any concerns I had were addressed. They really do want to provide a good patient experience.

I had to switch dentists due to insurance changes, and had gone to previous one for 15 years. I was apprehensive, but from the day I phoned to book, then the greeting when I arrived, I was really encouraged. They were great! But the test, is when the work begins, right?! 🙂 The hygienist Kimmi was thorough and informative in every step of the beginning process and the cleaning! I’ve also never had so many pictures to view of every side of my teeth. When Dr. Fermelia came, she spent time with me and most importantly, left it up to me, on things they were going to watch, and what future things I might need to do. Most appreciated that she did not paint the gloom and doom picture, and say that I had to do all this expensive work. Liked everyone I met!!

I work with dentists across the country, consulting them on marketing, service, and reputation. Dr. Fermelia is not a client, but she remains my personal dentist for good reason. She and her team pay attention to details, whether it is ensuring short wait times, selecting the right patients for treatment, or simply communicating thoroughly with patients during a routine cleaning and checkup. Thanks Catherine and Vicki.

I would strongly recommend this dentist and dental hygienist Vicki. I had many apprehensions about simply finding and going to a new dentist. I have had negative experiences at dental offices, so I was very nervous. Thankfully I was not displeased with my service. The staff is really sweet and caring. Vicki told me what she going to do in each of her steps when working on my teeth. They all really take the extra time to ensure all your questions are answered. Dr Fermelia met with me personally and checked my teeth. I appreciated how comfortable they made me feel. They continued to talk with me ask how I was doing throughout. I would highly recommend if you want a great dentist you can trust. Thank you!

I was a new patient today and was really pleased with my entire experience at Dr. Fermelia’s office. The front staff is professional and friendly, and able to get me in the next morning to recement a crown. Dr. Fermelia is wonderful! She really took time to explain what was required in my particular situation and the whys as well. It was so refreshing to be treated like a valued long-time patient. The office is really nice, and the dental assistant was also very kind. I’m returning next week for a cleaning and will definitely recommend this practice to friends and family!

Dr. Fermelia came in on her day off to personally address my issue and it proved her level of care and concern. Although I have only been here for 2 appointments so far, it has far exceeded any dental office experience I have ever had (and I have had many different dentist from my life of traveling). Every member of that team is exceptional! Couldn’t be happier.

Dr. Fermalia and her practice manager and the rest of her staff provide excellent compassionate dental care. I am retirement age and have had several dentists.Dr Fermalia is by far the best I have ever had. Would highly recommend her and her staff especially as a dentist for the whole family just as my family has benefited from outstanding dental care for every member of my family.

This office is the absolute best. The staff here is wonderful. They made my 3 year old feel so comfortable for his first exam and cleaning. I also had a great experience with Kimi. Thoroughly explained everything she was doing and had great suggestions. Very accommodating and patient as I had my 6 month old with me. Highly recommend this office for any dental needs.

I having been using Dr. Fermelia for 20 years and love her. About 15 years ago I was referred to an in-network dentist other than her. After getting a list of items wrong with my teeth I returned only to learn I really didn’t need all the work another dentist recommended. For the last 15 years since then I have only gone to see her and have always been 100% satisfied.

It is always a pleasure to visit Dr. Fermelia’s office for my cleaning appointment. Vicky is most accomplished and professional. She is sensitive to my comfort during the cleaning process, which is most important to all dental patients (I believe). It is also a pleasure to interact with Mason, who explains the insurance payment for the services I received and is most professional about scheduling and accommodating in e-mailing me needed information pertinent to Dr. Fermelia’s office.

Never have to wait for more than a minute or two for my appointment. Staff very friendly and kind. Vicki Beeg is the greatest dental hygienist and is very thorough and quick…also very careful and pain free! Dr Fermelia is upfront and no nonsense. She tells you how it is, but leaves the decisions up to you. Great dentist and office…so glad I am going there.

Ken Hart (Source: Google)


Dr Fermelia and her staff are an outstanding team! Stormie, Vicki and Kelly are fantastic! everyone is professional, friendly, caring with a great sense of humor..all my experiences with Academy Park Dental have been positive. whenever I hear folks say, “I hate going to the dentist!” I think to myself, “I don’t!!” I tell everyone I know about Dr. Cathy…I can’t say enough about what a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere she has created at her practice…Dr Cathy and Academy Park Dental made me smile…again…that sounds like a corny commercial, but it’s true!

July 10, 2019 A quick word of thanks to Dr. Cathy and her staff for the great job they did in replacing my partial. The fit is great and the new partial has made chewing food easy again. Whether it is a dental procedure or teeth cleaning, one thing that I always have liked and appreciated is that everything is always explained to you. You always know what is happening and you are frequently asked, “do you have any questions?” And a second thanks to Dr. Cathy for working around the appointment rescheduling and delays that were caused when my arthritis doctor changed my medication. Arthritis medication can sometimes cause mouth sores. So, when my arthritis doctor increased my medication, it caused mouth sores to develop. Dr. Cathy patiently worked around the two delays that occurred. The whole process was another example of the patient centered care and professionalism that this office always shows. Tim Wrig

As a new patient, I came in just for a cleaning today and every single staff member that I met greeted me kindly and made sure that I was comfortable and had everything that I needed, even in the waiting room. My actual visit was very pleasant as well, with each of my doctors genuinely getting to know me and my dental needs. Their knowledgeable and friendly staff made my visit the highlight of my day- They even had my name up on a whiteboard welcoming me as a new patient! 🙂

I grew up with the best dentist in the world and when he retired I floated from dentist to dentist and did not like any of them! Then I found Dr. Fermelia and I happily drive an hour across town to go to her! My husband has been to numerous other dentists in the city because he wanted somewhere closer to home or work. But, he finally realized it was worth the drive because everywhere else wanted to overcharge him and recommended tons of unnecessary work! Our two boys love her as well! My older son just broke out his filling (chewing on something hard I believe) and he insists on waiting until Dr. Fermelia is available because he is scared to go to anyone else. She makes him safe and that means a LOT with kids and dentists!!!

Had my first appointment this morning with this office and for the first time in my life I did not feel judged, overwhelmed or scared when leaving my appointment. Every single person I interacted with was extremely nice, professional and welcoming! I would recommend them to anyone and am excited to have finally found an office I feel excited to work with!

Rachel S. from Lakewood, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here since 2019 and absolutely love it. All the doctors and hygienists are so kind and care about your comfort. The administrative staff is very kind and helpful as well! I don’t like going to the dentist (who does?) but I always feel comfortable here. They are clean, respectful, and caring. Couldn’t recommend this practice more.

Will S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a great team! I was referred to this office by a friend after years of avoiding dentists and I’m grateful I gave them a try. My experience has been excellent each time and has overall restored my trust in dentist offices. Their friendly and encouraging staff made me feel welcome and put my fears at ease (Shout out to Debbie for being an important part of that). They are all about giving you a positive experience and if you ask them for something to make it better, they are compassionate and willing to facilitate (especially if you have a phobia of dentist chairs). Though I’ve been going to this location for a couple years now, I wanted to be thorough before leaving this review. Since my first checkup, I’ve had multiple cleanings, my wisdom teeth removed, and a few fillings. All of which they did a terrific job and in the process helped me regain confidence in my smile. It’s also worth noting that during my visits in 2020 & 2021, they’ve taken as many precautions as possible to ensure client / staff safety and peace of mind during the pandemic. If you’re looking for a reliable, friendly, and positive dental experience, stop reading reviews and put this team to the test like I did. If they can make me a believer, they can make you one as well. I plan on recommending them to my own friends and family.

I hate dental cleanings in general. However, when my family and I found Dr. Fermelia and her wonderful staff, everything changed. Wonderful atmosphere, friendly doctors and nurses and very thorough. I recently had back surgery and Dr. Fermelia and her staff went out of their way to make me comforable during my cleaning. Thank you Dr. Fermelia and your staff for such a wonderful place for all of our dental needs.

Went in pretty nervous as it had been years since I last went to a dentist. I also knew there was a lot of work to be done on my teeth. I was worried I’d be heavily judged and it would be an awful experience. It was the complete opposite once I got there. Everyone was very understanding and the atmosphere was chill. They answered all my questions and helped me come up with a game plan for my dental health going forward. I would highly recommend to anyone!

Dr. Fermelia was very responsive and sensitive to my pain level when I needed a crown. Because I cannot take epinephrine, I did need additional support to maintain a level of comfort throughout the crown. Her professionalism and commitment to me as her patient was and is her top priority resulting in a crown that perfectly fits my bite and the tooth it replaced.

Kevin B. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


One of the best places I have ever went for dental. The customer service is great and they treat you like a customer. Not just the next person in line hoping the day will end soon. I have received cleanings from two different associates throughout the years I have been there and still kind hearted people who care. Catherine is the best and there is a reason why she is a top dentist in 5280 mag. Overall, as long as this place is here. This will only be my place for my dental care. Thank you all.

Chantal C. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have been going Dr Fermelia for years and I love her! She pays so much attention to detail and makes sure any dental issues you may have are addressed. She takes her time with you and will even call after an appointment to make sure you’re doing okay. My dental hygienist Vicki is the nicest lady. She’s does a fabulous cleaning and is so gentle I could fall asleep in the chair. We’ll be coming back for years to come!

Roxy A. from Littleton, CO (Source: Yelp)


Catherine Fermelia, DDS has been my dentist since I was 7 years old…I’m now 32. The facility is very clean, the staff is very friendly, and Mrs. Fermelia has always been a great dentist and has taken good care of my pearly whites over the years! I never understood why people dread going to the dentist because it’s always been a great experience for me, and I would refer anyone looking for a good dentist to look no further! Even when I had my first two cavities a couple years back, they took great care of me! My mom, husband and best friend are all patients here as well.

Trent Rogers (Source: Google)


Dr Fermelia and staff were amazing! I feel at home here and don’t feel rushed or pressured for anything. They made sure I knew what was going on and what they were doing as they were doing it. They have a great set of questions when you arrive like “I gag easily” or “I don’t like the sound of dental instruments” and they actually go over this and confirm everything with you. They truly care about their patients and make you feel at ease every step of the way.

Dr. Fermelia and her team consistently perform at the highest level with the utmost focus on customer satisfaction, top notch quality and excellent technical skills. I first met Dr. Fermelia in 1999 when my wife and I sought out a dentist for our 5 year old daughter. We were very impressed with the supportive and encouraging approach from entire Fermelia Dental team that our daughter experienced in that first visit. After that visit both my wife and I switched to Dr. Fermelia and her team to provide our dental needs. So far 20 years of great dental health services for our entire family from one of the very best dentists!

Dr. Fermelia is a master in her profession. She does fantastic work…painlessly, and is always looking out for her patients best interests. I have sent my friends and family members to her…and they all agree that she is wonderful. I used to be very anxious going to the dentist, but now I feel comfortable with any procedure. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent dentist and staff.

I highly recommend Dr Fermelia’s office (Academy Park Dental) to everyone. The check-in was friendly and professional. My hygienist Sandra was personable and gave me a painless experience. And Dr Fermelia herself took plenty of time with me (it was my first visit) and I never felt rushed. I have an intermittent tooth-achy problem that the doctor solved on this very first visit, when my previous dentist had not solved it in two years. The doctor actually called me a few days before my appointment to introduce herself and ask if I had any questions about the practice. I was speechless. I had never had a doctor do that before! I will definitely recommend this practice to anyone to is looking for a caring and experienced dentist.

I have been using Catherine Fermelia as my dentist for over 20 years. She has always been extremely helpful, informative, and gentle in her dealings with me. She has a wonderful staff to assist her, from the front desk to the assistant who clean my teeth. I no longer live in the Denver metro area, but continue to drive 2 1/2 hours to Academy Park Dental because I appreciate the wonderful service they give me.

Vette Sternbeck (Source: Facebook)


I don’t like dentist and finding this office with the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. They took all of the fear out of going to a dentist office. They make you feel like family from the time you walk through the door. My mother-in-law, my husband, and I all go to her and when daughter turns three; I will be happy to take her to Dr. Fermelia. I would suggest anybody go to this dentist office.

Nicole Raile (Source: Google)


Always service I can trust! My husband and I have been going to Dr. Fermelia for several years now and have always walked away very satisfied with our services. The staff is always friendly and inviting. Prices are very reasonable, and they offer great loyalty programs if you don’t have dental insurance. If you need a dentist and good quality is what you’re looking for, don’t hesitate, go see Dr. Cathy!

Kate Frett (Source: Google)


Dr. Fermelia and her staff are simply the best! My teeth have been in their care for nearly 10 years now, with the exception of a brief stint where I tried to see someone closer to home. What a mistake that was! Dr. Fermelia is on the opposite side of town, but the quality care I receive from her and her staff is well worth a 45-minute commute a couple of times a year. Her office uses newer technologies to help them continue to do a great job on my pearly whites, but they go so far above just taking care of my teeth. They really seem to know me. They know about my job, my family, my hobbies, and they ask me about these things every time I am there for an appointment. A trip here is like taking my teeth to the spa, and getting to chat with old friends at the same time. I really cannot say enough good things about Dr. Fermelia and her staff, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new dentist!
