Best dental experience of my life. Beautiful, clean and modern facility; lovely staff; pricing was very fair – the introductory offer of digital x-rays, exam and cleaning for $59 was a great way to get started – and they have a very good value plan as I don’t have insurance. While I personally have no nervousness around dentist vistis I have a close friend who has very high anxiety who recommended Highlands Dentist to me and we were both so impressed. I’m now also referring them to any and all who will listen 🙂

The best dentists office I’ve ever been to! They updated me with all the pricing (multiple times have I gotten a bill from the dentist with no knowledge it wasn’t all covered by insurance), showed me exactly what was wrong, and even got me in before my appointment time. I’m more then pleased with this place and highly recommend Dr. Shonts. Thank you guys!

I absolutely love this office. Very clean and modern. The staff is amazing. Everyone was a pleasure to speak with. They listen and answered all of my questions & concerns in regards to getting work done to my teeth. Due to me not having insurance they were able to provide different methods to pay for my procedure. At first I was always nervous about going to the dentist , but now I feel more comfortable and know that I’m in great hands.

My experience at Highlands Dentists definitely warrants a stellar review. Dr Catherine Shonts was extremely compassionate, knowledgable and easy to connect with. The rest of the team is also fabulous and made sure to comprehensively explain everything from my insurance coverage to my oral health standing and goals. Highly recommend 🙂

I have never particularly enjoyed going to the dentist, but Highlands Dentists has completely changed my attitude about dental visits. From my first visit I was treated like a valued client. Every single person in the office was professional in her job, everyone made you feel welcome and comfortable, and everyone was so competent that they got you on your way quickly and as efficiently as possible. We are lucky in Denver to have access to top quality health care, and the professionals at Highlands Dentists are, in my mind, the best of the best. For reasonably priced, super professional dental care you can’t do better than this office. I feel lucky to have found them!

Always super friendly and so through with my cleanings, which is super important when you’re looking for a dental practice. I always go to Dr. Shonts, she is great. She always explains everything to me in detail, and reminds me the importance of flossing, which I can slack on sometimes. Also the billing department side is very through with you before any charges are made.  This is something i believe to be extremely important when looking for a good dentist, or really any where you are going to spend a decent about of money. The billing department will discuss your bill before the appointment starts by going through the itemized lines. There is. It secret or hidden fee’s, everything is very transparent, and I very much appreciate that. My mouth always feels super clean and sparkly after my visits. I highly recommend Dr. Shonts to everyone!

My favorite dental office! The team here is so welcoming and friendly, and they do an amazing job. They explain everything and encourage questions, and I never feel like I’m being rushed out of the chair to get to the next patient. My dentist, Catherine Shonts, is super nice and professional, and gentle on my teeth! I highly recommend the whole team. The office itself is really modern and clean, and I’ve only had great experiences here.

I was very impressed with my first visit to Highlands Dentists. I was happy that I could get my cleaning and a filling done in one appointment (on my first visit). I appreciate the transparency offered for the billing before the procedure was performed. I have always just received a fat bill in the past with other dentists without any explanation or estimates of cost beforehand. I really liked this straight-forward honest approach with costs presented and you pay for the procedure after being completed. Dentistry has become increasingly sales oriented (everywhere) and I like that they give recommendations and you pick and choose exactly what you want done. I did have to a wait a little while to get x-rays done, which wasn’t quite as quick as it could have been. However, once started, the x-rays went fine. The staff was friendly, the dentist did a good job on my filling and this facility had all of the modern dental equipment expected in a high-quality facility. Prices weren’t the lowest I’ve seen, but they were fair and seemed reasonable. Plus the location is good with plenty of garage parking. Really good first impression.

I had a great experience at this dentist office. The staff, Dr. Shonts and the hygienist all treated me with great service and professionalism. I hadn’t been to the dentist in over a year and I was pretty nervous about the deep cleaning and cavity check. I was pleased with my overall treatment and my dental health is finally back to being good. Happy to have found a dentist I enjoy going to in Denver!

I came here when my tooth was killing me and my regular dentist couldn’t see me sooner. After my experience, this will be the new regular. After some tooth pain that kept me up all night, I decided it was time to go in because it wasn’t just going away. They had availability within an hour of calling so in I went. After providing the initial profile info through a web portal, they went to work. A few x-rays later came the worst part of the visit – I needed a root canal. But for such terrible news, the way the staff was incredible in how they went about getting me treated. They talked about treatment options, got me scheduled with the endodontist that afternoon, let me know what the full procedure entailed. But best of all, the payment/insurance specialist. Walked me through each individual charge line by line, what insurance would pay & what I would need to pay plus payment options. I can’t remember the last time a dentist or doctor was so thorough in letting me know up front what I would owe, not after the fact. Why is this not required of every health provider in this country??? (Mr. Trump, are you listening?) Highlands Dentists redefined what it means for a dentist to be 5 stars.

I love this team.  The dentist is my least favorite place to go (except for jail, I suppose, but I haven’t made it there yet.), and I get anxiety just making a routine appointment.  However, the team at Highlands has been so friendly, helpful, and professional during my recent visits, that I’ve actually been able to keep up with my oral care in a timely manner.  If you’re looking for a great dental team in the Highlands, I would highly recommend this facility.

Leslie S. from Northwest, Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


It’s taken a lot of trial and error, but I have finally found the perfect dentist for me. Like many others, I experience a lot of anxiety at even the most routine of dental procedures, but my experience at Highlands Dentists was the best I’ve ever had. When I went in for my first appointment to get a cleaning and x-rays, I was immediately struck by the kindness and professionalism of the staff. The office ran like a well-oiled machine and each staff member made a clear effort to welcome me to the practice and make me as comfortable as possible. I came to find out that I needed a crown on one of my teeth. I felt my heart sink at the worry of the cost, the fear of the procedure itself, the disappointment at having to have work done at all, etc. I had no reason to fear, though. I was walked through payment options and had my insurance coverage clearly explained to me. When it came to the procedure itself, it was a dream. I experienced no discomfort whatsoever, and was continually reassured by the staff’s patience and constant check ins with me throughout the process. I’m recommending this team to everyone I know. Get your dental work done here!

I can’t speak enough praise about Highlands Dental. Having moved neighborhoods, I tried a new dentist (Rino Dental) closer to my new house. The new dentist botched a routine filling, including failing to properly numb the tooth even after 3 attempts. I went back to Highlands to see if they could fix what the new dentist had damaged. I was extremely anxious after the terrible experience at the new dentist and was dreading the appointment, but Highlands did an incredible repair job. They were calm and professional in explaining what needed to be done, and got me properly numb on the first try. They did a careful and thorough job and made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire procedure. After my terrible experience at Rino Dental, I thought I would be terrified of the dentist for the rest of my life. Highlands did an incredible job restoring my confidence in the dental profession. I am so grateful for the care I received and would highly recommend them to anyone.

I went to Highlands Dentist for the first time and had a very good experience. The doctor explained everything they were doing and the benefits specialist went over all the pricing giving me options accordingly. The hygenist was very nice and gave me some tips on how to care best for my teeth.
