I haven’t smiled showing my teeth in over 10 years, Dr. Craig and his amazing team gave me my smile back! Words cannot express the way I feel about my smile now, I feel like a new person! I have had years of bad luck with dentist and I finally feel like I found the people who actually care! I left crying tears of happiness and that probably will never end. Thank you so much!! Life changing place, 10 plus stars here!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Craig at Summerbrook Dental for years. His hygienists are all wonderful, gentle and thorough. Dr. Craig is awesome. I’m pretty particular when it comes to my mouth and he has always patiently done what needed done to keep me happy. I had composite teeth that had been knocked out as a child and a few years back he replaced them for me with veneers. They have been great and are a perfect match to the rest of my teeth. I travel a little further than I would like to the office, so last year I thought I would try to find a dentist closer to home. One visit was all it took to remind me that. it is worth the extra drive time to see someone I can trust to do things right, so I’m happily back at Summerbrook Dental. My kids have also seen him and there whole staff is great with kids.

I’ve always had a major fear of dentists until I found Dr. Craig. I came to Summerbrook because they offered free laughing gas. Little did I know that before long I wouldn’t even need it. From the front office all the way to the dentist you will deal with kind and caring people. Your comfort and desires are top priority to this staff. I’ve had extensive surgery and amazing results. I would highly recommend Dr. Craig and Summerbrook Dental. I’m so thankful for all of them. I have my smile back. Jill Bill Centennial, Co

I dropped in today because I thought a crown wasn’t sitting right.  It got fixed for free (of course), and when I was walking out, Dr. Craig, clearly involved in a procedure on another client, saw me, took a moment, and hailed me by my name.  What dentist knows every client’s name, and treats her like family? If you want a great human being, as well as a cutting-edge dental scientist to take care of your teeth, come to Jim, and Summerbrook Dental!

Summerbrook is the only dental group myself and my family go to. All the employees make you feel at ease as soon as you enter the front door. They make sure you are as comfortable as possible during any procedure. They invite you to ask as many questions as you like. I have had everything from crowns, to root canals, fillings and extractions and would trust Dr. Craig with all of it, and yes, I am a dental work coward! This is where you want your dental work done.

Alyssa A. from Colorado Springs, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have some insanely deeply seeded dental fears and anxieties based on almost a lifetime of traumatic experiences in the dental chair. Summerbrook dental has completely changed that for me. They’re understanding of my anxieties and never make me feel bad about needing nitrous or extra medication before procedures. I live in Colorado Springs and drive all the way to Aurora for Summerbrook! I cannot recommend it enough, they’ve absolutely changed the way I feel about dental procedures. They’ve found a customer for life.

Mike B. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Summerbrook Dental for a couple of years and they are always courteous and kind. I normally have dental insurance but due to unfortunate circumstances this time I did not. My son does have Medicaid and the nice people at Summerbrook had just recently seen him for a periodical check up. It turned out Summerbrook doesn’t take Medicaid. It also turned out the the last bill for my son did not go through because they tried to charge it to my last insurance company. I was very worried about the pending bill and also about my sons next check up. Instead, the people at SummerBrook worry about people and not just business. They dismissed the mistake of the last bill and insisted on seeing my son for his check up. They then gave me some recommendations for a good Pediatric Dentist who would take Medicaid in the future. They took a potentially bad day and made it good. Thank you SummerBrook Dental, I will always remember what you did for us.

Kailyn and the other assistants in the office were very friendly and helpful. Their smiles made me feel comfortable at once. Marlo, Dr Craig’s assistant was accommodating and very friendly. She was knowledgeable and answered my questions. She made me feel comfortable. The atmosphere was soothing and comforting. Dr. Craig was friendly and answered the questions I had. I was very happy with the evaluation and treatment plan he gave me. It is cost effective and makes sense. I trust his evaluation over two others I had been given. I look forward to working with the Summerbrook Dental team.

For most going to the dentist is an unpleasant experience. I can understand that feeling. However, I keep coming back to Summerbrook because every time I’m made to feel at home. Dr. Craig and his staff makes a great effort to not only make me feel at ease but give me the best information for any procedure I may need. If you’re looking for an honest and practical place to call home for your dental needs, give Summerbrook a try.

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


Having worked in a dental office during my college years, I am somewhat knowledgeable of what to look for. I am a little more critical of the service and cleanliness of a Dental office. I am happy to say that I am more than pleased with Dr Craig and his staff. I have now been a patient for more than a year with a couple cleanings and a filling replacement on my list of visits. At this point, I have no need to look further for a Dental office for my family. I’ll start from the beginning. Like most of us, I hate to be on time for my appointment only to wait to be seen. This has not happened here. I am in my seat within minutes of arriving. Even better, the operatory is not an extension of the waiting room. Once the assistant has set me up, the procedure starts right away. The billing is simple and to the point. It is breath of fresh air to leave behind the dice game of wondering what your visit will cost by having a concise and clear bill before my procedure. I think I am not alone in the sentiment that I am not a fan of getting my teeth cleaned. In the past it has been uncomfortable and sometimes unnecessarily painful. I sometimes dreaded my cleanings in the past. Now, the care and gentle approach to the cleanings by the hygienist at Summerbrook has me looking forward to my cleanings. I cant recommend the care and service at Summerbrook by Dr Craig & his staff enough! They are a great example of what a visit to the Dentist should be like.

Azali Akili A. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


I’m originally from California and I despise the dentist and everything associated with it. Needless to say I took a chance and came in for a cleaning and regular maintenance. Wow, it was like being in Disneyland and here I was a small child, unafraid and relaxed. No Dental Institution has ever made me feel more accomodated and less of a nuisance. Since call me old fashioned but I don’t like anyone in my mouth unless we are dating or a grandparent of mine. This is genuinely my truth visit them yourself to get your own.

I came to Summerbrook after a series of bad experiences with other dentist offices, where I had felt looked down on or not listened to. From the first contact I clearly understood that Dr. Craig genuinely cares about the welfare of his patients and wants them to feel a stronger sense of control over their plan than other places I’ve been. I was also helped by Sandy, who was gentle, competent, and kind when she gathered information for my chart and gave me my cleaning. I feel like Summrbrook has given me the best treatment that I’ve ever received from a dentist office and I am grateful to be a new patient there.

Jessica G. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


I love summerbrook dental. They do a great job and they have been the best dental clinic I have been to. Dr. Craig always takes time to see how I’m doing, they are gentle, the office is comfortable.  Colleen the dental hygienist is also welcoming and makes visits less intimidating. I’m really sad that I will be moving out of state this Summer… so I will have to find a new dental clinic. Bummer 🙁

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


I moved to the Denver area about 2 years ago. I have been coming to Summerbrook Dental since I have lived here. It seems like every time I come I end up with Colin, and I don’t mind it at all. She’s awesome, super kind, she’s that person you know she loved her job because she’s so happy so helpful and just wants to work on your teeth. One thing I like about this dental office is I’m always busy and they text you to remind you about your appointment 2 weeks before and 2 days before the appointment just as a reminder. When your in the office the treatment is outstanding!!

Chanda L. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Summerbrook Dental for a few years now, and I have never had a better dental experience than I have here. Everyone in the office is very kind and personable. They always greet me and they remember things about me that even I sometimes forget. Also, they offer complimentary nitrous if you feel scared and uncomfortable. I go to the office for cleanings approximately every six months, and I have gotten a crown and my wisdom teeth pulled at this office. I had no complications and everything healed well. Even though I am no longer on my military dental insurance, I would rather pay out of pocket to get my treatments at Summerbrook than to try out a new dentist office.

Mary T. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


It is wonderful to have complete confidence in your dentist, which I have with Dr. Garrison at Summerbrook Dental. After two years of visits and extensive work done, I know I will be treated with friendly and personal attention by all the hygienists (especially Colleen), my favorite and extremely skilled dental assistant Brooke, who did the BEST front  filling EVER, and the doctors. They give great cleaning with good education and encouragement, and excellent treatment, and advise only necessary work to be done. I have had some complicated situations, and Dr. Garrison conferred with Dr. Craig, plus referred me outside the practice for a second opinion when needed. She was then able to completely take care of an extraction and implant. I like the continuity of care with seeing the same staff each time. They all are caring, and provide as supportive and as comfortable an experience that you could hope for in a dental practice.

Chris D. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


I’ve just started going to Summerbrook since moving to CO from NJ in March. It was a very pleasant experience overall. Today’s visit was just for a routine 6mo. checkup/cleaning, and from the moment I stepped in I was met with very courteous, friendly & knowledgeable staff. The staff had me sit down for a one-on-one meeting to determine my dental needs/preferences. Took an interest in my life out here in CO as well. They asked whether it was better to find quicker, more cost effective solutions to issues or more costly, but longer lasting ones – which I appreciated. They even provided options for whitening too. And when they noticed that a filling had popped off, they took care of that within 20mins. From the front desk to the dentists themselves, the staff went out of their way to make me feel welcomed, and I will definitely be coming back! HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for a dentist in the Denver area!

I used to be so scared at the dentist I couldn’t stop watching everything and moving and getting out of the chair. Or just leaving the appointment all together. I started at Summerbrook a few years ago with Dr. Craig and the staff with sedation and had a lot of work done. Dr. Craig and the staff are so good at their jobs and really care about how you are feeling. They are so good that the past two times I’ve been in for emergency work, I have gone without sedation. For me to even be comfortable enough for that to happen speaks volumes to the craftsmanship and genuine care that the team exudes. Please do not forget that they keep everything sterile and clean which helps so much I’d never noticed before. But today during a global pandemic I was able to have one of the most comfortable and respectful experiences ever. And I’m 45 years old. Make mine Summerbrook!

A very short wait time, Anita was fantastic ,She explained what she was doing and what the devices that she was using would do. Very professional, this was probably one of the best cleaning and oral checkup I’ve ever had! I am actually looking forward to my next cleaning! All the staff that Summerbrook Dental are awesome!

Mark H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


This review is a little long so bare with me. So this was my first visit ever with Summer Brooke Dental: First visit: Wow, so where do I begin? Lets start by saying that I had a really bad experience at my prior dentist. I woke up one day in some of the most excruciating pain in my mouth and didn’t know why. I was lucky enough to have a friend that knew Dr. Craig. So I gave Summer Brooke Dental a call and told them what was going on. Dr. Craig pushed his entire schedule for me to come in for an emergency visit. I came in and Dr. Craig found a bad root that was left in my Gum after a prior extraction after my gum had healed that I didn’t know about. He had his surgeon remove it immediately. I learned alot that day on how bad infections can be because had I not go in and had it taken care of. I would of ended up in the Emergency Room at the hospital. He was fast and quick to identify the issue. Second Visit: My teeth in the front where decaying really bad. I literally thought there was no resolve for them. However… As soon as the staff saw this I was ready to walk out. “Note that’s because of me and my attitude” But they changed my mind to stay. They told me everything was going to be okay. Which in all my dentists that I have encountered never was like that at all. It was always here is what its going to cost and you have no other options. Dr. Craig however came up to me and told me that I actually had options which blew my mind because every dentist I had before told me I never had options. My entire experience at this place has blown my mind up to opportunity’s of growth for my dental experience because I never had options before. He was straight with me also which gave me even more respect for Dr. Craig and gave me more confidence in myself. He wasn’t like other dentist that say “oh you may need this or that” He said Mark you need 4 Crowns and two fillings to get you back on track. Me being skeptical still based on my prior experience I said well I should give him a shot. Third Visit: Well OMG!!!! I’m so glad that I did!!!! My friend Mr. Novak’s referral paid off!! I came in at my appointments time early and I was settled into a really nice comfy chair with head phones to watch the news or whatever was on TV. Dr. Craig came in and told me that after today’s operations that I would have the best smile ever. Me still being skeptical I closed my eyes throughout the whole operation and repair. Then I opened my eyes to see my smile after everything was completed. Note: Me being a guy yea ill admit it, I literally almost cried in happiness when i opened my eyes top see what Dr. Craig did. For the first time in my life i had my smile back. I needed a small adjustment after the operation and Dr. Craig told me he was happy that I called because hes all about making the customer happy. Mind you I had 4 crowns done and 2 fillings completed. Final assessment: Dr. Craig is one of the best dentist I have encountered. That’s coming from a background from Chicago Dentists that Ive dealt with my entire life. Since then I have recommend 3 business owners and 16 employees I work with because not only do they work with insurance but they also have whats called Care Credit. Because of Dr. Craig and his staff I was able to get my smile back and finance everything with ZERO interest for 18 months which is unheard of!!! All I can say to those who are looking for a dentist. Look no further

Justin R. from Littleton, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have been with Dr. Craig and Summerbrook for going on two decades and have never experienced better medical care (regardless of specialty) than at his office. Dr. Craig and his staff are truly second to none and it’s easy to see that their dedication to compassion and care with each individual is not only genuine, but from the top down. I am a unique patient when it comes to post op and recovery from Dental procedures and Dr. Craig has worked to understand and to adapt his own practices with me to ensure my comfort and care is paramount. I would truly be hard pressed to find another Doctor and staff that are as professional and dedicated to their patients as Summerbrook and I hope never to have to. Dental work can be daunting and scary especially with my typical recovery. I know that help is a call away at any time day or night and that I will always be well informed and have everything I need. From Doctor to reception, this office is all on the same mission to change the perception of going to the Dentist.

Smile J. from East Ridge - Ptarmigan Park, Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


After Dr. Craig saw my review he personally reached out to me via email, phone, and text. He was very persistent in making sure that he made amends from my first visit to his office. After, having a one on one conversation about what happened he apologized and wanted to make sure I felt comfortable coming back for any dental work. The second and third visits were completely different experiences. His staff was very caring and attentive to all my needs. Honestly after giving Summerbrook Dental a second chance I am actually thinking about making them my “Go To” place of dentistry. I just want to thank Dr. Craig and his amazing staff for going out of their way to make me feel comfortable! Keep doing great work!

I have been seeing Dr. Craig and his team for years. I recently was married and we had split dentist’s until our insurance changed and my husband who had been seeing his dentist for 20 years had to switch. Dr. Craig was so patient and kind. It put him at ease and he was really impressed with Dr. Craig. He loved how easy it was and is very impressed.

Haley Spratt (Source: Google)


Wow! Seriously impressed and so thankful I found Summerbrook Dental! I’ve always had dental anxiety and they made me feel so at ease with everything! They explained everything so well, and were so kind and welcoming! When they found out I just received a job offer after recently graduating nursing school, the staff gave me a card and gift card congratulating me- I don’t know many businesses that would take that time and consideration for their clients. If you are at all hesitant on booking an appointment please let me out your fears at ease! They are wonderful!! Thank you Summerbrook dental!

Very nice people at this Dentist office.  They cater to cowards like me and make my experience tolerable, even enjoyable.  They had some changes at the helm but it has not taken away from the professional, courteous manner in which they work. I’ll stay here for this kind of service. They did my one and only implant.  Now dubbed, “the coolest tooth in my head”.  Cheers Summerbrook, keep on teething on.

If you are looking for a dental group that is value-driven, behaving with unyielding integrity while providing outstanding,quality equipment,products and service, then you must include Summerbrook Dental Group as your #1 provider. This unique environment provides a compassionate, no bureaucracy, “committed to you” health care system all the while making your experience eventful and fun! When was the last time you said that about your dentist?

Heather D. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely love the staff in this dental office.  They always make you feel welcome and comfortable.  I have been bringing my family here for 3 years.  I used to take my children to a separate pediatric dentist, but started bringing them to Summerbrook once I became a patient and learned that they were very kid friendly.  My kids especially enjoy the free cookies and hot cocoa :).  I highly recommend Summerbrook for all your dental needs.

Lisa G. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Summerbrook Dental for several years now. The team here really makes everyone feel at home. They know going to the dentist isn’t usually the most pleasant experience but they do so many special things to make it more comfortable. From offering drinks ( water, juice etc) to making sure your lips have enough chap stick on them while they are working on you mouth all make me feel cared for. Everyone is really pleasant and upbeat and they all pitch in to help each other meet each patients needs in the most timely manner. After my experience with the folks at Summerbrook my husband and daughter have both switched from their long term relationships with their dentist to the team at Summerbrook. I would definitely recommend them.

I have been with Summerbrook for several years. They consistently use the latest technology to benefit patients (3D laser mapping for crowns, in-house milling of permanent crowns, laser bacterial reduction, etc). They also maintain a clean, professional office and treatment rooms. For added safety right now, they are using a virtual waiting room where people wait in their car rather than the office waiting room. I appreciate the added precautions which allow the office to stay open. For my recent periodic cleaning, Lauren did a great job! In particular, she did well operating one-handed (the other hand is currently required for vacuum on high suction mode – a COVID-19 guideline for dentists). Overall, I continue to be happy with Summerbrook and plan to continue with them for my dental needs.

Summerbrook Dental is the best dental office I’ve been to. Their staff and office consistently exceed my expectations! I don’t love going to the dentist but they make it as easy and painless as possible. The staff is friendly and welcoming, the facility is clean and comfortable, and I always leave satisfied with my care. I will never go anywhere else!

Blaineand H. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


Summerbrook Dental Group is awesome. I’ve been coming here since the very early days of their existence. I’ve always been treated as a friend. Thousand example deep cleaning can be very distressing and yet I had to have one recently and it went just great no after pain and will is badass I’m leaving that in there you know. Tooth extractions and feelings are also kind of distressing to think about they’ve always been done with great care and were they were always worried about my Aftercare as well checking up on me to make sure I’m OK it all 7 stars out of 5 star rating

Heather D. from Aurora, CO (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jim Craig, I would like to take the time to say how wonderful you and your entire staff are. I have had 2 hygienists work on cleaning my teeth and each of them had a wonderful demeanor. My children have had different people work on them and they all rave about them. They all are very passionate about what they do, and not only that, they truly care on a personal level for their patients. I have never been to the dentist for regular cleanings after high school. I have always had good dental insurance and I still never took myself or my children more than once every couple of years until now. It is all because of the personal connection. I also know you staff love working in your office, and I could hear your morning meeting this morning, and heard laughter and good spirits. Having a work environment like yours definitely affects the way the staff communicate with the patients and it shows. I don’t know how you do it, picking the perfect team…but you did it!

Lourie W. from Seaford, DE (Source: Yelp)


I HATE DENTISTS!  BUT, I can honestly say that I have never had such a great experience since beginning this process.  Unfortunately, I did not give Dr. Craig much to work with and he assured me that “I would be fine”!  I started with not smiling or covering my mouth when I did.  NOW, I walk past the mirror and smile “just to smile”!  I was treated with respect and always felt that I was the only patient / client in the office.  Dr. Craig explained everything including the pain I would have afterwards.  His comment was “You’re going to hate me for a couple of days”!  I have never gone to a dentist office and laughed while I was in the chair.  The technicians / dental assistants ROCKED, as well.  Every single staff member treated me with “care” knowing my situation..  Dr. Craig also called my daughter for a few days to make sure I was doing okay; leaving HIS number, in case of ANY questions (which I always had).  THANK YOU so much for your patience and guidance in my case.  I never thought I would ever say this but, “I can’t wait until I have to go back to the dentist”; well, Dr.  Craig’s office anyway.

I appreciate the GREATEST care taken for my well being and safety they took before and during my visit. They checked my temperature before my visit for cleaning my teeth. I waited in my vehicle for them to prepare a room. Sandy did a thorough job of cleaning My teeth .I have a narrow space to work in and she made me feel very at ease. I have been seeing Dr. Craig for quite a few years ,as well as my daughter. He is the most caring , kind and sincere person and has really done a great job as a dentist on multiple issues I have had ..

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


I been going to Sommerbrook for about 3 years now and before I started going there I had not been to a dentist in several years because of previous bad experiences of other dentist. I shared my fears at the time of scheduling and from the moment I came in the door everyone was so nice they took there time explaining things and answering my questions and the hygienist at that time was so good with me and she has since left the practice and now the one who cleans my teeth now is WONDERFUL, so friendly and cares about my feelings while in the chair. Dr. Craig and Dr. Rowe are awesome as well. I will continue to go here as long as I can.  Great Service!! Thanks for everything you do for your patients it means a lot.
