Doctor Makowsky knows what he was doing! He explained everything clearly to me and let me know what the steps the procedure was going to take. He even told me about different complications that could happen during the procedure.  He performed a very delicate procedure on me perfectly! I am absolutely grateful that I found this dentist!

Makowski Dental is an amazing place. Dr. Makowski is very knowledgeable and very kind. His support team, Johnnie Ann and Kathy are very nice, they explain and help in detail. They both have a gentle touch with high skill. Natalie, the office manager is always there for you, answering all questions, getting all paper work completed and appointments perfect. Sheyenne, the dental hygienist is also very thorough and has a gentle touch and care. They operate regular hours, follow all Covid guidelines. It is a wonderful place to go to do detailed work, especially in this special time.

Thank you for serving our family Dr. Makowski! I have been to a handful of dentists in my life and have not found another nearly as exceptional as Dr. Makowski. Everything from staff to office is outstanding. They have 100% of my trust. I hesitate to tell everyone that Dr. Makowski is this good… It’s like I have searched all my life to find that one fishing spot that everyone is searching for. Finally I have found it!

I had not been to a Dentist for a long time… I was taking 12 Advil per day for about 1 year because of my “headache” pain. After 2 visits with Dr. Makowski (involving 4 hrs of his Very focused and skilled work), I am feeling no pain! I did not realize that those constant “headaches” were being caused by my (extremely infected) molar! If you have had any negative experiences with Dentists in the past (as I had), please try Dr. Makowski. His staff is exceptional as well. I was Very impressed with his DH (Jonnie) and Lindsey (you rock!)

I have been a patient of Dr. Makowski for over 22 years. He and his staff are personable, professional, informative, and fun. Yep – I said “FUN!” Dr. Makowski continues to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry with various Post-Doctorate Fellowship programs. As a patient, I greatly appreciate his dedication to his craft, as well as his desire to deliver the best possible dental services to me. I like being educated about advancements in dentistry and oral health. It contributes to my overall health and well-being. I’m happy with the consistently high quality care I receive, and I highly recommend this practice.

Greg M. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Makowski for over 15 years. He is unequivically the best dentist and oral surgeon in Colorado! He has done everything from teeth whitening to root canals on me, including custom gold dental crowns and perfect porclean crowns. I always get complements on my teeth and I plan on staying a patient because I want my teeth to last another 50 years. If you are looking for a dentist in the greater Denver area, this is your stopping point! I used to live right around the corner from the office but I moved about 12 years ago and continue to drive about 30 to 50 miles (50 from work) to go to Dr. Makowski because there is no better dentist in Colorado.

I have been seeing Dr. Makowski for about 2 years.  I wish I had found him years ago because I have paid a fortune for crowns and lost teeth that I probably didn’t have to.  Dr.  Makowski takes an analytical and scientific approach to determine the reason teeth are requiring repair.  In my case, my teeth were misaligned which resulted in my bite being off stressing and damaging some teeth requiring crowns and two teeth to be pulled.  Previous dentists were just fixing each tooth without figuring out the why.  Now after my teeth are realigned and my bite is corrected, I should be able to keep the rest of my teeth!  What a blessing!  He and his staff are cheerful and welcoming while being very professional.

My family and I have been coming to Makowski Dental for 20+ years. Everyone from the dental hygienists, the office staff and Dr. Makowski all have the same goal which is to keep their patients healthy and happy. I highly recommend Makowski Dental. As a side note, it is very impressive that Dr. Makowski has broken into sleep wellness programs for his patients. This is proof that his business is growing and the ability to innovate within the dental community. Much love from the Engelbert’s!

My family has been going to Makowski dental for several years. We have received great service from cleanings to crowns. The dental hygienist is skilled and detailed and asks questions about our satisfaction level before she calls her work complete. Dr. Makowski is very knowledgeable and uses up-to-date technology in his office. He makes suggestions for treatment options, but doesn’t push. We are happy with our experiences at Makowski Dental.

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


Great Dental Office! I wish my family would have started going to Dr Jim when my kids were young. We have been going to Dr Jim for about 5 years and it has been wonderful. It use to be difficult to coax my family to see the dentist. This dental office has changed my family’s fear of having teeth cleaned and dental work done. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. If there are any dental issues they are always taken care of quickly and without repeat visits to address the same problem. The billing is always sent to insurance and billed correctly the first time. I would recommend this Dr and office to anyone.

Nate B. from Parker, CO (Source: Yelp)


No one likes going to the dentist, period. However, Dr. Makowski and his staff truly make your trip to the dentist an enjoyable one. They are personable, they know about you, your family, your hobbies and they show a genuine interest in who you are as a person. Not to mention, they do a really good job as your dentist. They perform high quality work and take all kinds of insurance. I switched from my previous dentist because they never had availability they met my schedule. Dr. Jim will bend over backwards to make our schedules work and to find a time that I can come in that actually works for me! If you need a good dentist, look no further. This is one of the best dental offices in Denver.

I have been receiving dental care from Dr. Makowski for over 25 years. He is the absolute best and his attention to detail is beyond measure. My husband finally switched to him after years of unsatisfied results and says Dr. Makowski provides the best care and services he’s ever had! I will refer anyone and everyone to him and his office!

Tina E. from Arvada, CO (Source: Yelp)


I had the pleasure of working on a temporary basis with Dr. Makowski and his team, and I can truly say the quality of dentistry provided is excellent, and they are a very caring group of dental professionals.  The office and dental equipment is state-of-the-art and their sterilization techniques are excellent. I’ve worked in the field of dentistry for more than 4 decades and have been a nationwide dental consultant for many years; this is the first time I have reviewed a dental team online and I am proud to say this is one of the best dental practices I’ve seen, and I have seen many over the years. Dr. Makowski’s skills are as excellent as can be, and I will be seeing him as my own personal dentist.  Very friendly office!

LA T. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have had my dentist in Los Angeles for over 20 years who is outstanding and trustworthy. Finding a new one in Denver was going to be a challenge & I wasn’t looking forward to it but necessary. Actually my long time dentist asked his network to recommend someone in Denver and that’s how I found Dr Makowski! I was in terrible pain due to an impacted and infected molar tooth, and Lindsay was my savior who squeezed me in for an appointment. I walked into the office and pleasantly surprised to see a chalkboard with “welcome liza anne!” Aww too sweet. Then I met the others in the office who were equally as warm and welcoming- Diane and Morgan. I didn’t even have to wait long in spite of my short notice appointment. Dr Jim was not only pleasant but precise in his evaluation and treatment. I definitely found my new dentist in Denver!! Glad to be a new patient of Dr Makowski!!

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


Care, comfort, experience, and even a chuckle or two! I used to be nervous during dentist visits, but no more. I’ve had a handful of procedures done, and during every visit I was made to feel at ease. Friendly and knowledgable staff. I feel like family when I’m in for a visit. It’s taken me literally years to find an establishment this fine.

TJ Jones (Source: Google)


I have been going to Dr. Makowski for over 30+ years never a complaint, exceptional staff and with every emergency they get me in next day. I’m very grateful for the work they do. Even though my insurance is off network, I wouldn’t trust anyone except this staff to take care of my dental needs. Example today – I had a veneer that came off that Dr. Makowski put on in 1990’s and it lasted well over 30 years before any issues. The life span of a veneer is 10 years. QUALITY WORK!! They fit me in with a phone call and fixed within 30 minutes. Shows they really do care and willing to help if they can. I highly recommend Makowski Dental!

As usual, very friendly, very conscientious, professional care. Dr. Makowski is personally involved in each patient’s care and identified a potential issue with my medical condition and planned dental treatment. He personally resolved this with my cardiologist and everything went very well. Sheyanne was great in completing my deep cleaning, wonderful addition to a very fine office.

Dr. Makowski is a such an amazing dentist. I recently moved to Denver and hadn’t found a dentist I trusted, until a tooth was causing such pain I couldn’t sleep! Dr. Makowski went above and beyond taking care of me, and made sure the pain was gone- and the integrity of my smile was kept. Truly an incredible experience and I would highly recommend seeing him.

Sydney Kemmerzell (Source: Google)


So incredibly welcoming and accommodating! I have seen a lot, and I mean A LOT of dentists. All the ladies there today had such a positive demeanor and Dr. Makowski is so detailed; takes the time to listen to your opinions and desires and takes note (literally). I was referred by my Orthodontist and after my consultation I was able to take the spot of a cancellation to get my teeth cleaned! And got some great care tips and a MUCH healthier mouth. Thank you Dr. Makowski and his entire team for making my first experience with you so pleasant! 🙂 *Also got a bunch of goodies!!*

Derek M. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I was led to Dr. Makowski in July, 2014 after a previous dentist I was seeing botched a procedure and caused me injury. He and his team are excellent! Not only was I pleased with the actual work done on my teeth, but the way in which he and his staff conducted themselves throughout the entire process was the best I’ve experienced in my 10 years in Denver. They listened to my concerns, showed compassion and understanding, offered me insight into the issues surrounding my problems as well as multiple solutions, answered EVERY one of my questions (and trust me, there were a LOT of them), and executed his work flawlessly. In general, I don’t have an issue with going to the dentist; it doesn’t bother me. But I know that many people really dislike going. If YOU are one of them then you absolutely must give Dr. Makowski and his team a try. I am so thankful to have found him!

Megan N. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


WOW! I have never in my life felt more at home in a dentist’s office! I am a new patient, having recently moved here from a small town. I found Dr. Makowski’s office via online reviews, and I was not disappointed. When I stepped into the office, I was pleasantly surprised by the comfortable atmosphere. The office is clean and in very good condition. For my very first appointment, they had “WELCOME, MEGAN” written on a chalkboard at the checkout desk, so I felt good going into the appointment. Lindsey, the delightful woman at the desk, made sure that all of my paperwork was handled correctly and assisted me whenever I asked. I am a single mom, and had to bring my 3 year old daughter to my appointment with me. All of the staff were very kind, and they were very tolerant of having my daughter there. The initial appointment I had scheduled was a consult, and it was handled masterfully! Dr. Makowski is a warm and inviting man, and it is apparent that he takes interest in his patients. We talked about my issues with my teeth, both medical and cosmetic. He was knowledgeable and listened to all of my concerns. He also talked to my daughter about how pretty her teeth were! Dr. Makowski actually cared about my feelings about my health. He had several ideas of how we could improve my smile and help me feel better about my teeth. On a separate appointment, I saw a dental hygenist who was just superb! I wish I had caught her name. I also had to take my daughter to that appointment, and she was patient with my daughter. She did an excellent job with my cleaning, and did not seem to judge my hygiene (It had been quite a while since I had seen a dentist). Overall, if you are looking for a dental office, I CANNOT recommend this clinic enough. They are friendly, inviting, and they are well-versed in their craft. They have certainly won me over!

Rachal R. from Parker, CO (Source: Yelp)


I am a fairly new patient. It was easy to get a timely appointment. The office is bright and inviting. Lindsey was welcoming and offered a refreshment. My appointment started on time. The visit started with a thorough history of my symptoms and a review of my last visit by Jo, my hygienist. Dr.Makowski stopped by to say hello while we were getting started. I had x-rays taken and a cleaning done this visit. The process was thorough and pain free. Dr. Makowski was updated by my hygienist, then he sat down with me and looked at my x-rays and in my mouth. He again assessed how I perceived my mouth status. He is very personable, you can tell he enjoys his work. Then Jo assessed if I needed floss, toothbrush’s or toothpaste before I left and made sure I had follow-up in place before I left. I have been to a few dental offices in my past. Dr. Makowski has a very nice office and I had a very positive experience. I will gladly return to his office for my next scheduled cleaning.

Dr. Makowski and his entire staff are amazing!!! Not only was the services I received flawless, but the procedure process as well. Zero pain involved – Dr. Makowski is efficient, professional but very personable. I have had a fair amount of dental work done and this was by far my most pleasant experience.

Dr. Makowski has been my dentist for over 20 years. Not only is he a great dentist but a good man. His office is always clean and his staff are fun and professional. I have had to call him in several emergency situations and he always took care of me. Your health will be his first concern and then he will make your smile look the best. One of the best dentist in the Denver area!

Stephanie C. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Makowski’s for almost 2 years now, and I can honestly say that I no longer dread going to the dentist! Dr. Makowski and his staff are incredibly thoughtful, friendly & professional. Even my 2 young children enjoy their visits with “Dr. Jim”. I would recommend Dr. Makowski to anyone looking for a dentist. He is as good as they get!

Angela H. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Makowski’s for a few years. I came to him after quite a long time of neglect and fear of dental work. I am so impressed by his practice that I convinced my husband to change from another dental group in town because of Dr. Jim’s personal approach. You never feel like a file or just a number, you feel like family. My children ages 7,4 & 2.5 LOVE him. They want extra visits when Mom and Dad go! he leaves the children with a positive experience everytime! Dr Jim will see our family until he retires.

Mary P. from Boulder, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Makowski for 8 years. When I first started my care with Dr. Makowski, I needed quite a bit of work. He was thorough and very gentile with my treatment. He has the best dental Hygienist who take a personal interest in you and your care. Love them!!!! They have a very clean office, which is very important to me.  That says alot about who they are.  I am always telling my friends to try Dr. Makowski for all their dental needs.  Without a doubt I give them a 5.  it’s a wonderful office to trust your care to. Mary

Katherine S. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


My entire family goes to Dr. Makowski and we all love him.  He is the ultimate perfectionist.  For example, I have had a gap between my front teeth my entire life and it returned after braces as a teen.  My previous dentist never suggested filling the gap, but Jim did it immediately.  My teeth are now beautiful.  Most importantly, he is so knowledgeable on keeping my teeth and gums HEALTHY!  Dr. Jim is personable and my kids adore him and my husband and I respect his professionalism.

I have HUGE trust issues, but I TOTALLY trust Dr Makowski.  He is NOT about money, he GENUINALLY CARES about his patients, & is INCREDIBLY meticulous when he is treating & working on his patients!!  KUDOS to his ENTIRE staff also.  You can tell he is quite particular with who he hires. IT SHOWS!!  He has an INCREDIBLE staff. Dr Makowski LISTENS to his patients.  He treats you as though you are a relative.  I’ve been with him for 20 or more years. I would be DEVASTATED if he ever retired. SERIOUSLY, I would NOT TRUST any other dentist!!

Melody J. from Arvada, CO (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Makowski has been our dentist for several years.  He and his office staff are well trained, friendly, and conscientious. I seldom have to wait  but never made to feel rushed while there. We drive all the way from Arvada to his office since moving out of his vicinity; that’s how much we appreciate and trust him.

Carolyn Mills (Source: Google)


I’ve been going to Dr. Makowski for over 20 years and have never had a bad experience. He and his always likable staff take very good care of me and my teeth. He once had a temporary hygienist who told me that she had worked with a “whole lot of” dentists, and she thought Dr. Makowski was exceptionally good, while some she had worked with she wouldn’t even think of letting them look in her mouth, let alone do any dental procedures. He’s been in the same office all this time, and, once you find it, it’s easy to get to. I highly recommend James W. Makowski!

I go to this office because it is HAPPY! Johnny, Kathy, Natalie and the new dental hygienist Cheyenne rock. I always leave happy. Needless to say….Dr Makowski LOVES his job and keeps up to date with lots of training. Impressive. I trust this team! Total Thumbs up….p.s. I’ve been to ALOT of dentists in my life…so I know 😉

I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Makowski and his staff! They are professional yet personable and really care about my health and happiness. They always follow up with sincerity and thoughtfulness after my procedures. I highly recommend Dr. Makowski for your dental needs. Amazing Staff. From behind the desk to chair side. This is one of the best run businesses around . You have got to come visit and see what I’m talking about. THE DOC IS IN THE HOUSE!!!!!
