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

Richard E. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Jealous of a New Smile? After 23 months, it was time for my braces to finally come off! I was calm and collected on the outside but “happy dancing” on the inside ready for my new smile. I proudly wore my new smile from ear to ear. I was so happy I went to the nearest store to show off. I smiled at everyone and everyone smiled back. Some people even stared in amazement and I could tell some were jealous. Some people even wanted to take pictures with me because of my smile. It was crazy! I felt like a move star… But that’s just my imagination. The reality is 23 months ago, I had an overbite I wasn’t too proud of and my bottom teeth looked like a row of shark teeth. Crooked and uneven. As I’ve gotten older my teeth naturally moved and shifted. I was becoming more self-conscious of my smile. Enter Dr. Helm and his team. I have to admit, the whole process from getting a consultation, to setting appointments for checkups, to the day my braces came off was actually easy for me to deal with as a “mature adult” aka, not a kid anymore. The office staff was always accommodating and flexible with my schedule. I felt safe in the care of Dr. Helm and his team from day one. And that matters! The respect and level of care they provide for all patients is hard to beat, in my humble but accurate opinion. Today, I am thankful for my new smile! And can’t help but feel like a star anyway. It truly is a big deal because my self-conscious smile has been transformed into a smile of confidence. And my crooked teeth are now straight and even! Thanks to Dr. Helm and his dedicated team of experienced and efficient professionals who really know how to make you smile. I would highly recommend that if your smile doesn’t make you feel good, that you go to Helm Orthodontics, especially if you’re not a kid anymore. Mission accomplished and job well done. Thank you, thank you and thank you to Helm Orthodontics! Sincerely, Richard Escobedo

We have been going to Helm Orthodontics for the last 5 years and we are so grateful for the professionalism and caring of Dr. Helm and his staff. My daughter used to cover her mouth when she smiled, but she got her wonderful smile back after Dr. Helm did his amazing work. We also took our son and he is so happy about his teeth. We kept recommending Dr. Helm to our relatives and send three cousins to get their teeth fixed. The staff treated us as family, they gave us flexible appointments and make us very comfortable to ask any questions. Dr. Helm directly communicate with us about any issues we needed to know. I highly recommending Helm Orthodontics for orthodontic needs of any ages.

I absolutely love the workers here. They are always so warm and welcoming whenever I come in and never fail to make sure I’m comfortable. I recently got my braces off and I’m very satisfied with my experience and results. I’d recommend Helm Ortho to anyone! I also know a bunch of my friends who have gotten their braces here and have a good experience as well.

Lisa C. from Bennett, CO (Source: Yelp)


By far the best orthodontist in the area. I had my fair share of consultations and none of them took me as serious as Dr Helm and his staff. Since the initial consultation they treated me as if I were already part of the family.  His assistants know what they are doing and do everything they can to make you feel as comfortable as possible. As soon as I walk in they already know my name. I love that I am able to bring my 3 yr old daughter with me to my 20 min appointments. Also the price is not exaggerated and you can do payment plans without having to use care credit first. LOVE HELM ORTHODONTICS!

I love helm orthodontics. They are very professional and personable. I didn’t realize just how amazing they were until we left the state for a year. We had the worst orthodontic care at another clinic while gone. We never knew who we would see, what was going on, the business office was a mess. I was paying way more then the care we received. Moving back to Colorado it was a relief to have my daughter back in the capable hands of Dr. Helm and staff. They are all so wonderful. I never questioned anything, costs were clear, care was clear. My daughter was back on track and ended up with the beautiful teeth she wanted.

Isaura P. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Helm is very wonderful to work with.  My daughter and I are very please with the end result of her treatment “a perfect smile”.  The entire treatment went smoothly.  Dr Helm always kept us up to date with the progress.  He made us feel part of his family.  The dedication and care he shows his patients is priceless and hard to find.  The office staff is always very friendly and welcoming.  They are really easy to work with and recommend his office for orthodontic care to anyone in need of it.  They are awesome!!!

Dr. Helm made our choice of orthodontist easy. On our initial visit the office was very organized and friendly. Dr. Helm was professional, knowledgeable and kind. I have not regretted our choice once in the years we have been seeing him. With 4 kids we have many years to go.

I am 39. The quality of service I received here was unparalleled. Dr. Helm and the staff are VERY knowledgable, informative, and nice. They are all doing their best here and you will probably see that from the first visit. I am almost done with the braces and I really cannot wait to get them out. 2020 was hard on their business but they didn’t loose sight of their goal. The quality of service is this same. I don’t know if I will be living in this area or not by the time my kids need ortho services. My kids are 6 and 2 now. But I will definitely bring them here is I live near by. There is only one thing that upsets me. Six starts is not an option here otherwise I sure would have giving the a six star. Thank you for everyone who works here. You are all awesome and I wish you all the best because you deserve the best for your hard work. Peace.

After recently getting my braces off, I decided that Helm Orthodontics deserved a review. The staff is very pleasant and makes it a mission to remember you by name. As soon as you entered the office, you could just sit down and they would acknowledge you and check you in for the appointment. There is a playroom for smaller children and they also offer beverages while you are waiting. The staff also remembered details about me that I forgot I even told them such as where I work, and what my plans were for the holidays. I can’t express enough how much of a pleasure it was to do business with Helm Orthodontics and I recommend them to anyone interested in getting braces. They always operate in a professional and timely manner. Once the braces were off, the end results were better than I had expected. Bravo Helm Orthodontics! Bravo!

Dr. Helm and his team are fantastic! Dr. Helm is very thorough and detail-oriented, walking you through the process each step of the way. He gives you a personalized experience and you can tell he really cares. When I got my braces off my teeth looked great even though I had a pretty difficult case. His team is friendly and remembered me every time I’ve come in, they also get me in as soon as possible whenever I’ve broken or misplaced a retainer. I honestly can’t recommend them enough!

I’ve been going here a little over two years and just got my braces off! I actually live an hour away and drive here for my appointments because the staff is great and they truly care. They know all their patients by name and worked well with my schedule. The selling point is even once your braces are removed they still work with you for same day retainers and follow up appointments!

My experience with Helm Orthodontics was nothing but positive. Everyone from Heather, Bonni, and the orthodontic technicians were amazing. Definitely felt part of the family that Dr. Helm has cultured into his practice. I was always greeted by my name, even when I called over the phone. They honestly know how to make you feel part of the family and not just another customer. Dr. Helm was very detailed when it came to my orthodontic treatment. He spent his time making sure the my smile was coming along great – even when the office was busy, he would make sure he spent his time with all of his patients. I was very impressed with my final results and I would recommend Dr. Helm to anyone looking for orthodontic treatment!

Without any reservation, I highly recommend Dr. Helm and his practitioners for help with correcting your dental problems. After failed attempts to fix my son’s overbite and other dental issues by other Dental practitioners, Helm Orthodontic’s methods, solutions, and procedures were successful in correcting these issues and produced positive results in appearance that will last a lifetime while improving my son’s quality of life. The staff is bilingual, diversified in skills, and are very professional, caring, and personable with all their patients.

Bonnie was in the office by herself on Monday the 7th of Oct 2019, & I needed Big help with my broken lower retainer. She was not only So helpful, but friendly and so nice. I waited while she put my new retainer together and then with a lot patience & know -how she fitted them on me. I was very thankful to have a wonderful experience @ Dr. Helm’s office, even tho’ he was not there. Thank you Bonnie!

The office staff at Dr. Helm‘s office are amazing my twins both had braces and the ladies in the office were always very courteous helpful and a pleasure to see every time they went over there. Dr. Helm was very informative anytime he saw them he let them know how the progress was with the anticipation date of when the braces may be coming off. I would definitely recommend to them. Kudos to billing ladies as well.

I’ve only had the best of positive experiences at Helm Orthodontics. My teeth have always been my biggest insecurity to the point I was always nervous to smile. I’m pretty sure I had one of the worst cases they’d seen and I wanted to fix them so bad. Dr.Helm and his staff did the most incredible job fixing them for me to have a better smile. The office is very welcoming and you’d always feel free and at home surrounded by the really helpful and amazing stuff. I’m rocking with perfectly straight teeth and my self confidence skyrocketed once I saw the results. I would definitely recommend Dr. Helm to anyone who needs/wants straight teeth. I promise you won’t regret it. you can start your treatment now and thank me later.

Dr. Helm and his whole team are simply amazing. I decided to get Invisalign to close several small gaps between my teeth. Dr. Helm is a true professional and throughout the treatment, I really felt that his goal was to make sure that I am 100% happy with the final result. In addition, the cost was very reasonable compared to some other places in Denver. I got Invisialign Express and after I finished all my trays, I was not completely happy. Some of my teeth weren’t fully touching due to their shape and little black triangles were visible near the gumline. I mentioned my concern to Dr. Helm and he immediately offered to reshape my teeth slightly, and ordered a whole new set of aligners (with no extra fee). At the end of the treatment, Dr. Helm’s team stressed the importance of retainers to make sure my teeth stay where I want them forever. I couldn’t be happier with the final result and I can’t recommend Dr. Helm and his team highly enough!!

Best Orthodontic Care ever! Dr. Helm and his staff are so friendly, fun and professional too. I’ve completed about 2 years of braces and LOVE my results! For the past 2 years I have always been greeted with a smike, kindness and quality care. Just an amazing group of caring people.

I still have follow up care and so look forward to seeing them on every visit!!! Dr Helm and Staff, I am so glad I found you!! Thank you so much!!!

I was a patient of Dr. Helm during my early high school years. Dr. Helm along with his staff were and continue to be very kind and knowledgeable! Throughout every step of the process, my family and I were provided with information about not only what the next steps were but why those steps were being taken. We appreciated being kept in the loop and the time that they dedicated to doing so. We had such a great experience with Dr. Helm and his team that we decided to continue our relationship by choosing him for my brother’s orthodontic experience. I’ve had my braces off for a few years now, but I continue to receive compliments on my smile! I have to thank Dr. Helm and his team for helping me achieve a smile that I am proud of!

Kendra W. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Helm and his team are excellent. My son has received top notch care and they take oral hygiene very seriously. They want to set people up for success with braces and be sure that their clients know how to take care of their teeth before, during and after braces. We just got braces today (this is our 4th visit as my son had some gum swelling Dr. Helm and his team wanted to get under control) and I am beyond impressed with this practice. Well done Helm team!

Heidi Z. from Bennett, CO (Source: Yelp)


Both of my kids were ready for braces at the same time and I was nervous about everything. The price, the process, the doctor… Took them to a few different places, ending with Helm Ortho because their quote for the two of them was substantially lower than multiple other places we had checked with. Their office and staff were very helpful and flexible. They kept everything on track and the entire process went very smoothly. The kids really liked Dr. Helm and staff, and were very comfortable in the office from the very beginning. They have wrapped everything up now, and both have beautiful smiles. Ended up that I couldn’t have asked for a better price, process or doctor. Planning for a visit for kid #3 soon!

I’ve been going to Helm Orthodontics for the last two and a half years and his staff has become family. I just got my braces off and the staff has been nothing but incredible to me. I used to cringe when I saw my smile. I never smiled showing my teeth because I was ashamed of how crooked and out of place my teeth were. Now, I can’t stop smiling. Dr. Helm changed my life. I can’t thank him enough.

I am 14 years old. I had braces for three years. At Helm Ortho, everything is absolutely perfect. My appointments always ran smoothly. Dr. Helm is a phenomenal Orthodontist. Their staff are informative, organized, friendly, and kind. They are always considerate of their patients. Every time I walk in, the office is spotless down to the very last detail. I wouldn’t have done anything differently.

Lori H. from Colorado Springs, CO (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Helm is by far the BEST orthodontist.  I would highly recommend him.  Not only is Dr. Helm nice, very knowledgeable, but a perfectionist.  His staff is awesome too.  I have not felt at any time during my 20 months of treatment that he did not care.  I observed Dr. Helm’s professionalism each visit and everyone is treated with respect and as if they were his only patient.  I feel like I became part of the family.

Stacey Q. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


My experience with Helm orthodontics was nothing but professional from the time I stepped in the door. Dr Helm listened to what concerns I had with my teeth and provided a detail analysis of what should be done at my consultation. His office and staff are a very friendly environment. I appreciate the honest and kindness that he and his office provides. If you are looking for a kind, professional orthodontist I highly recommend Dr Helm at  Helm Orthodontics you will not be disappointed.

The staff at Helm Orthodontics is incredible. They work hard to tailor to my needs around work and school, as well as last minute things that come up. I have been coming here about a year and a half and every experience has been perfect. Dr. Helm is kind and extremely helpful and his dental staff is incredible. I definitely recommend Helm Orthodontics to anyone looking to get braces. In addition, Rachel one of the staff members who preps you for Dr. Helm is incredible. Go see Rachel and Dr. Helm ASAP!

Helm Orthodontics has done a fantastic job over the last two years on making me feel more than just a customer. The ladies are phenomenal! Especially Mariela, she’s the best! Dr. Helm does a great job with making me feel comfortable and he knows his craft! I was very hesitant on getting braces but my results have been amazing! I am very grateful for the work that I got done here! Worth every penny!

“Professional is not a label you give yourself – It’s a description you hope others apply to you.” – David Maister Dr. Helm and his staff are definitely professionals who care. From the moment you walk in, all patients are warmly welcomed and greeted by name. It’s like they were waiting just for you. The level of focus and dedication to the service and well-being of patients is obvious throughout the team, which speaks to the leadership and character of Dr. Helm. He has clearly surrounded himself with like-minded people. The entire staff is friendly and competent in their role. Both of my children have undergone treatment with braces through Dr. Helm and his staff and the results are nothing short of amazing! I have to use the word amazing because it’s amazing what a difference a proud and confident smile can make. Helm Orthodontics changes lives and I highly recommend them to all in search of a winning smile.

All three of kids needed braces and this place is absolutely amazing. The flexibility for payments was amazing being a single mom and all I was able to afford it. The staff is sooo friendly. The Dentist was so helpful in the whole process and knew what he was doing. I recommend this place to everyone I know. I love love this place no one is to young or to old to come here. They just want to see you smile with confidence.

I just want to say this place is the absolute best ! I had my braces done by them for a year. I came to Dr. Helm asking if it was possible to get my teeth nice and aligned in a year’s worth of time because I was getting married. He did just that with no hesitation. We set realistic expectations and it came out better than I could have imagined. I can’t thank him and his whole team enough for going above and beyond in helping make this process possible. I am extremely happy with how my teeth look. Everyone here is so nice from the minute you walk in to the minute you leave. Highly recommend this office you won’t be disappointed.

Gina Martinez (Source: Google)


Dr. Helm was very helpful and remembered my son’s name as well as my name. He did a really great job, the techs he has are also great at what they do. The staff was helpful, if I needed to push back a payment by a few days they were able to accommodate me. Nothing but good visits in the over 2 years my son had to be seen. I would highly recommend this office to anyone needing orthodontic care.

This place is the the absolute best! Dr. Helm and his staff is very professional , knowledgeable, friendly and fun. I love the atmosphere every time we come. Dr. Helm has given my 16 year old a beautiful smile and my 18 is getting close to having his braces off after his teeth were botched up by a orthodontist in Houston. I am so grateful to have been connected with this office and I highly recommend them to anyone needing this service!
