Dr. Kulkarni did an excellent job on my wife’s Invisalign and I would highly recommend her to anyone! Her office is beautiful and state of the art. Plus she is one of the few board certified orthodontists in the Denver area. The rest of the staff was great as well. I would definitely return!

After being told by another local orthodontist that my daughter’s teeth “will never be straight” we decided to change doctors. Dr. Kulkarni was recommended by a friend and we are so happy we made the switch. I’m pleased to report that my daughter’s teeth are well on their way to being straight! Dr. Kulkarni never really even questioned it. She has been professional and dedicated from the start, as has her amazing staff. Both my kids are now patients and we have been extremely satisfied with the care we’ve been given. Highly recommended!!

Our first experience with orthodontia and we couldn’t be happier. Dr Kulkarni is thorough, always provides information throughout the process, takes the time to answer questions and has done an amazing job with my daughter’s teeth. The staff are equally great from the front desk to the techs, everyone is friendly, informative and professional. I would highly recommend this Kulkarni orthodontics!

Miy daughter received her braces with Dr. Kulkarni and both my wife and I would recommend her office for anyone. She explains the process of each visit and makes sure we understand in detail what to expect. She is personable and makes our daughter feel comfortable. She has a friendly and approachable manor to her. The staff is always friendly and easy to work with.

Dr Kulkarni and her team are wonderful! Both of our kids have gone to her. They are very good at communicating and she calls the next day to see how they are feeling after procedures. We have had a few instances when we’ve needed something after hours and Dr Kulkarni has called us right back to address our concerns. They have been clear and straightforward dealing with payments. Also- everyone is really kind and friendly.

Dr. Kulkarni and her team are the best! They are always sure to explain to my daughter everything they are doing, to keep her at ease. The appointments always go so smoothly. We have just a few more visits left and we will definitely miss everyone in the office. No need to look any further, this is the Othodontist family for you!!

Our experience at Kulkarni Orthodontics was excellent. Dr. Kulkarni’s expertise is unmatched in the Lakewood area. She was thorough and meticulous with our son’s treatment and he has a beautiful smile to show for it! She and her staff are very friendly and helpful and make everyone feel welcome and important.

Very friendly and informative on anything they are doing or needs to be done. No secret charges were a surprise as we were informed before anything was done. The day my child had braces put on for the first time they made sure my child not only was informed on everything but that we all were informed. They even called later that night to make sure she was doing ok and if any questions or concerns came up after we left.

Dr. Kulkarni and her staff are absolutely wonderful. My son has been visiting this office since 2017 for 2 phases of braces. Each phase was discussed in detail including price and duration. There were no surprise costs at anytime. During our time with Kulkarni Orthodontics, we were always met with friendly, well educated staff that displayed great care for each individual patient. We never once felt rushed or a bother for even the simplest of visits. My son has completed both phases and has walked away with the most handsome smile in the time frame they promised. I would hands down recommend this practice to anyone.

Dr. Kulkarni is amazing! She and her entire staff are wonderful. They are ALL very kind and welcoming. They go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable. They all are awesome at explaining the entire process during each visit. I am very thankful for Dr. K and her entire staff for making my experience so gr

Dr. Kulkarni and her team are amazing. I have two daughters in braces right now. Lina takes her time to customize the best care for each of my daughters and takes the time to talk to me after each check-up to let me know where we are in the process and explains it to me in a way I am able to understand. My oldest daughter will be out of braces soon. Lina’s fine attention to detail is apparent in the transformation of my daughters smile. I highly recommend Kulkarni Orthodontics.

Dr. Kulkarni has treated both our daughters. Dr. Kulkarni is very passionate about her work. She and her staff take time to get to know their patients personally. The staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Kulkarni went above and beyond to find the best possible treatment for our daughter and consulted with us about her ideas along the way. Our daughters have always felt welcome and comfortable in their office. Dr. Kulkarni always takes her time in talking with the kids and parents before and after their appointments. We highly recommend Dr. Kulkarni to all our family and friends

I haven’t had the best luck with any other orthodontics office that I have been through, this is now my third and just in the few visits that I have done here at this dental office have outweighed all of the bad experiences that I’ve had previously with other offices and most of all she was very flexible as far as financially and I would definitely recommend people to go and see her. The staff are amazing as well, very friendly

I had adult braces done with Dr. Kulkarni and would recommend her office for anyone. She always took the time to explain the process of each visit/adjustment in detail I never had questions about what the plan was. She is very warm and personable, remembering details of my personal life and genuinely inquiring and caring. She was always friendly and approachable with all the kids I heard her interact with. All of her staff were friendly and easy to work with. I love my teeth now!

I visited Dr. Kulkarni for help with a cemented retainer I had placed by my childhood orthodontist back in Michigan. From emailing with me personally all the way through my consultation and eventually yanking a hunk of metal out of my mouth, Dr. K and her staff were great. Highly recommend. Edited to add: I only had two appointments with Dr. K, one to remove a cemented retainer and one to pick up my new removable retainer. I found myself wishing I had more treatment to do so I could come back! Overall great experience.

They did a great job on my son Cades teeth. A big difference was made in less time than we had hoped. The care the whole office showed along with Dr. Kulkarni made a great difference. She made sure to call and check on him after he got his wisdom teeth out (even though that’s not a procedure her office does so that meant a lot). One time we discovered we were out of wax right before a trip and they were off that day and I called and left a message and someone was able to get us wax very last minute even though they were closed that day. It’s a great office would recommend to anyone!

I try to support women in business, especially women who work in the sciences and other male-dominant fields. I carefully researched my options before selecting our orthodontist. It was a bonus that Dr. Kulkarni and her staff are lovely people and that the office is so close to home. I couldn’t have gotten any luckier. Thank you, Dr. Kulkarni! Aubrey’s teeth look beautiful!

After searching around for an orthodontist for our 12-year-old twins, I have to say we are so happy to have found Dr. Kulkarni! From the initial phone call, to the consultation appointment, and then our girls getting the braces on, we have been very pleased with the friendliness of the staff, the thoroughness in explaining the process and specific plan for each of our daughters, the follow up once they got their braces (Dr. K herself called to see how our girls were doing), and the ease in scheduling appointments. We are very pleased with Kulkarni Orthodontics!

We are so lucky to find and get to work with Dr. Kulkarni and her staff at Kulkarni Orthodontics. We moved to Lakewood/Littleton area with one kid in braces and one kid needing them, so one started in the middle of treatment, and the other brand new. Dr. Kulkarni saw the older kid through completion (last month) and the process couldn’t have been easier. They made it so easy and with a smile! Our younger child has one year to go and we couldn’t ask for better staff and orthodontist. Dr. Kulkarni and her amazing staff are kind, easy to work with, and they never make us feel bad if we have to change an appointment or if we need to change billing cards. Through the years, we have worked with all sorts of doctor’s offices, dentist offices, and these guys are like family. The process from start to finish is super easy. We have a year to go with one kid and I am even considering getting my own evaluation and possibly, braces, through them because I have a couple of issues going on decades after my braces came off. Like I said, we are super lucky and blessed to have found them and it helps that they are 6 mins from the kids’ school and 8 from the home!

Dr. Kulkarni and all of her staff are so friendly and welcoming. They do a great job of helping my girls feel at ease with any procedure being done. Rachel and the reception staff are great!! Costs are reasonable and I love that everything is included, instead of feeling like I’m being nickel and dimes on every visit! Thank you!

Dr. Kulkarni is the best! Her entire staff is very friendly and professional. My Invisalign treatment turned out great even with COVID causing certain appointments to be cancelled. The staff at Kulkarni Orthodontist were on top of getting me rescheduled and keeping the facility clean. Overall I give the services a 5star.

I am a 28 year old and it is my 2nd time in my life having braces. I just wanted to pick someone that would do a good, thorough job, so I wouldn’t ever have to get braces again. I ended up picking Dr Kulkarni because I thought she had good reviews on google and the Cigna website. I live in Denver & work in Westminster so Lakewood is a bit of a drive. Honestly, it was worth it. During my consultation the Dr. estimated I would have my metal braces on for 8-10 months. I got them off just under 7 months. I am very pleased with the results & feel like I made friends with the staff! I also considered Invisalign, but thought metal was the better route for me.

We’ve been clients of Dr. Kulkarni’s for over two years with two kids. Dr. Kulkarni and her staff are great with kids, explaining procedures in terms they can understand and impressing upon them the importance of their role in successful orthodontic treatment. When there was a major concern with our older daughter’s x-ray during a routine follow-up visit, Dr. Kulkarni was able to consult with a specialist and provide information for us the same day. The office is very accommodating with appointment times, and very responsive to immediate concerns. We can’t recommend them highly enough!

I am Ava Williams. I am 8 years old! I have been with Kulkarni Orthodontics for 1 year! They have been kind and sugar sweet for the whole time I have been there. They try to be as gentle as they can and reasonably they are an amazing place to help your teeth. I had an underbite and a cross-bight now I barely have either! I love going to Kulkarni! In fact, I have an appointment at 3:40 today! And that is my review. I hope you found this helpful! Buh Bye!
