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

I wish I could give more stars honestly. First of all, their price for Invisalign is absolutely UNBEATABLE. I started my treatment in 2016 and got quotes from two establishments, Trinity being one of them. The other place was more than double the cost out of pocket. Second, they will work with you until they, and you, are satisfied with your results. After my first set of trays, the lines between my top and bottom two front teeth didn’t quite line up, and the doctor pointed out that one of the front teeth was also slightly lower than the other. So I got another set of trays, no extra cost. With these trays, one of my teeth was not sitting in the aligner properly (this tooth turned out to be super stubborn). I grew concerned about it and called to make an appointment. The doctor agreed and scanned me for a THIRD set of trays, still no extra cost. I had barely made it into the start of that first set, but the doctor didn’t hesitate once to throw them out and get me ones that worked. After those trays, the stubborn tooth was still being stubborn. So I got a final set of trays (I say final because I’ll be done on Thursday), and once again, no extra cost. I’ve been in the office SO many times and have never had to pay anything more out of pocket. And last visit I found out I get a complimentary teeth whitening as a congratulations for finishing my treatment! What?! Maybe my insurance is really good but I have never had to pay for anything other than the price I was quoted 2 years ago. The only thing about this office I could do without is the religious theme, and the Christian music they sometimes play. But it’s by no means overbearing and it’s a small price to pay when other places cost more than double. Go here. Even if you live across town. I promise it will be worth it and you will be happy.

I’ve been a patient of this office since I was 14. I need braces as a teen and then again after I broke my jaw as an adult. Currently my daughter is also a patient. I can’t how much I love this office. They have two locations which makes things very convenient. The staff is always warm and welcoming. Dr Nelson is always kind and professional. He is honest about patient needs. My daughter and I both live this office and would highly recommend them!!! Both the Thornton and Arvada office are incredible.

We absolutely loved Trinity Orthodontics! They took the time to sit down and explain the plan for our daughter’s braces, answered all of our questions, and were committed to ensuring that she would leave their care with a perfect smile. There were no hidden costs and we appreciated the one phase approach. Our daughter’s smile is beautiful! We recommend Trinity Orthodontics to all of our friends and will use them for our younger daughter in the future.

DO THE NEXT RIGHT THING…with your Orthodontic Care, get a free evaluation at Trinity Orthodontics. I am so glad I did for my 2 kids. Word of mouth got me to this practice. I hope this YELP! review passes into your “ears”, just as confidently. Their EXCELLENT customer service by the staff was a wonderful 1st impression. Take note ALL business, your front desk and ancillary staff is huge for good initial impressions. Dr. Nelson was great. He shared his knowledge and experience openly as he evaluated both our kids for future braces. Dr. Nelson is not your normal orthodontist. This man specializes in craniofacial structure and proper bite alignment…meaning he’s not in the business of just straightening teeth. He wants to not only straighten teeth but make sure a child OR adult has proper bite and jaw alignment. Many “factory orthodontics” are in the business of just grabbing a patient’s money and put on braces to “straighten” teeth, without applying the expertise that Dr. Nelson has and applies. This brings me to another point about this practice. Their motto is “You shall do what is right and good in the sight of the Lord.” Deut. 6:18 – They actually apply to their practice, what they preach. This is HUGE in healthcare. And personally if I find any person or business that applies these principles…I’m there. My kids are new to the practice, so as their care progresses check back for updates. I look forward to sharing more. Thanks Dr. Nelson and Trinity!!

We love Trinity Orthodontics…. such nice doctors and staff, always welcoming, on time, and will make time to get theirs patients taken care of. We would highly recommend to start your treatment with such a great and caring office. With the 2 locations you will alway be able to get in. If you haven’t already make your appointment today. Thank you Trinity Orthodontics for being awesome!!!

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


Dr Nelson and his staff have well over 100 years of combined experience. He is a top 1% Invisalign provider in the entire world. He has a fellowship status through the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain. He treats adults and children and is very honest and meticulous about his work. Dr Nelson does not only provide straight teeth but he focuses on the bite and makes sure the jaw joints are in the most ideal position to help with TMJ placement. The reason this is so important is long term health of your teeth and bite. You would be under serving yourself if you went somewhere else.

The staff and Dr. Nelson have been amazing. After several consultations, Dr. Nelson was the only dentist to explain things clearly and concisely. He was conservative with the treatment and did not want to remove teeth that did not need removed! Thank you for taking care of my son’s teeth! Isabel his hygienist was always very communicative about what my son needed to do to be successful with his braces. We would recommend them to anyone who needs braces! Thanks again.

I did smile care club and they didn’t fix my teeth to the detail I wanted. Total waste of time and money. But Dr. Nelson said at the initial appointment that if I decided to do further correction with his team that they wouldn’t be satisfied with anything less than perfection. It’s taken about a year and a half but you can’t rush art. And I’m super happy with the results! I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

Trinity Orthodontics was recommended to me for my two daughters by a friend and also a co-worker. It was a great experience for our family. The staff is friendly and accommodating.The doctors are knowledgeable, focused and understanding. My oldest daughter had traditional braces and the youngest had Invisalign, both worked well. I highly recommend Trinity Orthodontics to anyone looking to get a beautiful, perfect smile for yourself or your family. The O’Laughlin Family

Trinity orthodontics is amazing. They’re so kind and very clear on their step by step process on how to get your teeth all straightened up! They never make you feel nervous about anything and always answer any questions or concerns I have. I highly recommend coming here!

Aaden Ramirez (Source: Google)


I went to about four other Orthodontists prior to going here. All of them except Dr Nelson told me that they either couldn’t do anything, tongue was too big, or to get veneers. From the start Dr Nelson was caring and personal. My treatment took a half year longer than excepted, but I never felt like they were rushing me out and instead always made sure that my teeth were well taken care of and that my smile was perfect. I definitely do not regret choosing Trinity and love the care they put into making sure my needs where met. I would choose them all over again and would recommend anyone to Trinity.

Doug O. from Thornton, CO (Source: Yelp)


Both my son and daughter went Dr. Nelson at Trinity Orthodontics for braces. Dr. Nelson and his staff have always been great at making the kids feel at ease and explaining what was going on with their treatment. We first met with Dr. Nelson when my son was young, around 9 or 10. After his examination, Dr. Nelson recommended that treatment not be started until all my sons adult teeth were in. It’s very refreshing to have such an honest, skilled professional that has the utmost integrity. I would and do recommend Dr. Nelson and Trinity Orthodontics for any Orthodontics needed. I myself was a patient for a sleep apnea appliance and received the the same great honest and professional treatment every visit. Doug Omland

Joshua F. from Henderson, CO (Source: Yelp)


Wow can I just say that I will recommend Trinity Orthodontics to everybody I know. I came in for an impression to get my new retainer and it is really hard for me to take impressions. Susan, Isabel, and Yerr were amazing on helping me get through the impressions. They told me we would get through it together. I am so impressed with how kind and amazing everybody is at this location. I will always come back and recommend to all my friends. Everybody here loves their job and you can see it through there smiles. Dr Nelson was awesome And just simply had a personal talk with me.(which I thought was awesome). This is the best Orthodontist in Thornton Colorado. Thank you Trinity Orthodontist

Terry O. from Arvada, CO (Source: Yelp)


For the past 19 years, I’ve been a business owner in the construction supply industry. It’s not a surprise, nor secret, that service, trust, credibility, integrity, and honesty are absolutely paramount to success. It’s easy to find service providers in every business, but it’s more difficult to find those that have the same values as mine. I found that Trinity Orthodontics has the same values as me!! My wife and I have sent two of our three daughters to Trinity Orthodontics for braces over the past the past six years – and we couldn’t be more happy with the level of care, integrity, and professionalism we received from Trinity. In 6 months our third daughter will also get her braces from Trinity Orthodontics. There’s no way we’d consider any other Orthodontist – great people. Keep up the great work!

Blanda O. from Arvada, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have 3 girls who have all received orthodontic care from Dr Nelson and his staff. My oldest had severe crowding and most recommended some of her teeth to be pulled. Dr Nelson allowed time for her to grow and was able to straighten her teeth without a single tooth pulled! Both of my daughters have a beautiful smile now and I completely trust his care of my youngest. I am also in health care and find his entire staff professional, friendly, and up to date. Excellent practice with the patient as the top priority! Staff also creates a fun environment for children with regular, seasonal games. My kids loved it! Also Dr Nelson stays up to date on orthodontic treatments, TMJ and Sleep apnea. I have complete trust in his care and his referrals

Dr Nelson is wonderful and so is his staff! The office is welcoming and they offer so many “extras” (drinks-alcoholic and non alcoholic, snacks, blankets, pillows…almost anything to keep you comfortable!). Not to mention how great everyone is and the ambiance of the office the way the treatment is handled is so revolutionary! Dr Nelson’s office is able to offer quick treatment plans, affordable prices, and high end technology. I am so impressed with my treatment and overall experience at Trinity Orthodontics!!!

Both of our boys go to Trinity Orthodontics and we have been very pleased! Everyone in the office is pleasant and helpful. Anytime we have questions they are happy to answer them. They are very flexible and respond quickly when anything is needed! Dr. Nelson does a great job with our kids and helps explain things in a way that my 9 year old can understand as well. The techs are also very sweet and always check on my kids to make sure they are comfortable while they are working with them

Teresa M. from Brighton, CO (Source: Yelp)


Trinity Orthodonics deserves 100 stars! Everything about this office is extraordinary. I feel Dr. Nelson has genuine concern for me as a patient and wants me to have the best care and treatment possible. He is patient, precise, knowledgeable with a good sense of humor, all in one. The office staff are the BEST! They treat everyone with respect and kindness and have always been attentive to my needs and concerns. They hug me when I leave and I love it! I’d recommend this office to anyone considering treatment. Way to go, Trinity!

Magdalina S. from Longmont, CO (Source: Yelp)


From the first time me and my family walked in to this place, I instantly feel the friendliness of the staff. We felt so welcomed. I also love the fact how this facility is so animal friendly. We brought our puppy here and everyone was so happy, even one of the staff give our puppy a water to drinks. Another thing my kids love about this place is that they always have cookies and drinks upfront available for everyone which my kids love Today I missed my appointment from yesterday and since I live so far away, they make it happened to see me anyway. That is awesome!

Amanda Thomas (Source: Facebook)


From the day I scheduled my daughter’s first consultation, we have received the utmost attention, care and consideration from staff and Dr. Nelson. Every member of their staff is knowledgeable, caring, and personable. They always make you feel relaxed and welcome. Because of the contagious joyful environment you can’t help but leave feeling the same. I will recommend Trinity Orthodontics to anyone considering treatment. They are simply the best.

Great orthodontist. Saw us for years before our kids needed braces, free of charge. They didn’t rush us into unnecessary treatments too early. When our daughter finally did need braces, we got a great deal on Invisalign, and the entire process was easy and painless. Appointments we’re short and convenient. There were no extra add-on charges, even when we needed new aligners. We will definitely use them for our son in a few years.

Ardn T. from Arvada, CO (Source: Yelp)


I moved to Colorado halfway through my Invisalign treatment from California, and was doing long-distance with my old provider. We decided my alligners weren’t tracking and they told me to get rescanned here in Colorado at my own cost or fly back to them. I called Trinity after I found them on the Invisalign site just in inquire if they would be open to doing a scan for me. Imagine my surprise when they told me that not only would they, but that they would do it free of cost to me as a courtesy! I found that to be a huge relief and really appreciated that they would schedule me in so quick to do this. I’m going to look into transferring my treatment to them after this

Maria D. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I came into the wrong office for my appointment and I was sitting for awhile wondering why they haven’t called me up and I saw someone wiping down the counter and handles of everything and Nicky approached me to ask if I needed anything and that’s when I learned i was in the wrong office! But she was so kind to help me find the office I needed and even offered to walk me over, offered me water and kept the office clean during this time of crisis. Even though I am not a patient they have such GREAT service.

Kaitlyn T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Professional and friendly staff! They offer you coffee, cookies, water, alcoholic or non alcoholic beverages, blankets, pillows honestly anything to make you comfortable. They took scans and Xrays and showed me what my smile will look like roughly and explained the processes thoroughly and clearly. They answered any and every question I had. I would recommend all my friends and family here. Such a great experience. My treatment is estimated at only 12 months for Invisalign and this fixes TMJ, overbite, my bite and overall alignment.

Becky S. from Arvada, CO (Source: Yelp)


Initial consultation for my 12 year old daughter was today. My 14 year old son had completed treatment with Trinity about a year and a half ago. First impression again is welcoming, friendly and professional. Trinity is well organized! All staff communicate very clearly about the treatment course and plan. Dr. Nelson is very friendly and professional and ensures the best results. I feel my daughter now is also in the best hands with this team. Would recommend Trinity Orthodontics to anyone in need or orthodontics.

Doug H. from Golden, CO (Source: Yelp)


This is a review looking back at getting braces at Trinity Orthodontics several years ago. If you are older and considering braces… I was 60ish when I decided to bite the bullet and get braces (due to alignment/TMJ issues). I can’t tell you how happy I am that I made this decision, and remain so to this day, several years later. That’s all due to Dr. Nelson and Trinity orthodontics in Westminster/Arvada. The whole team there was welcoming and family-like, showing nothing but concern for the best results and professionalism. They made the process smooth, painless, and worry-free. I would highly recommend Dr. Nelson and his team. One piece of advice I would give: they will give you the option upon completion for getting an extra set of retainers. This is an add-on, but is highly recommended. You are going to want an extra set for peace of mind, and there is no better time than at completion of treatment to get a pristine set of retainers for your newly corrected teeth. (They don’t keep the molds into the future.) If you are older, braces can work for you, too! I highly recommend Dr. Nelson and Trinity Orthodontics

Stephanie A. from Brighton, CO (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Nelson is not just an excellent orthodontist, he’s an amazing person. We have run into him a couple of times outside of the office and he is so genuine and friendly and engaging with my boys, it’s nothing short of awe inspiring! He’s taken a very conservative approach with my oldest son, eliminating the need for braces all together so far. The entire office staff is probably the nicest I have ever been to. He is currently treating my middle son for his obstructive sleep apnea from a broken nose/deviated septum from when he was 2. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about OSA and the effects on children and has done an amazing job treating my young son! I highly, highly recommend Dr. Nelson and his staff! Jen in the office is so sweet and Susan is super patient and kind.

Elena B. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


We’ve started working with Dr. Nelson couple years ago. My daughter was 10 at that time and we had our first orthodontist visit with a different doctor at a the different office. Let’s say, I wanted to get a second opinion from another specialist before putting her through expanders and braces. So I called Trinity Orthodontics and they were able to get us in for a consultation that same day! Dr. Nelson is very knowledgeable and honest. He definitely gave me peace of mind and earned my trust. Little over 2 years later we are back to get Invisalign. Can’t wait to see results

I feel blessed to have found Trinity Orthodontics! My daughter got braces here few years ago. We had very few problems but did have to come back for some normal things one can encounter with braces. Each time the service by all staff was excellent. Everyone is so friendly. We are back to replace one of her retainers because it went through the wash and to file her teeth since it has been a few years. Dr. Nelson was efficient, friendly, humorous, precise and very attentive to her comfort level and to her satisfaction with the end result.

Tiffany A. from Globeville, Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Nelson and his staff have treated four of the five people in my family. So, we have been long standing patients of Trinity Orthodontics for over seven years! This does not include the pretreatment we received prior to braces. The staff is absolutely fabulous and very friendly, kind and welcoming. Dr. Nelson takes his time getting to know you and checking in on the family. Susan, the dental hygienists, is such a gem. I love when I get scheduled with her because she is so wonderful. Honestly, everyone is great! You will receive top notch treatment because Dr. Nelson is such a perfectionist and wants to ensure that you are happy with the outcome of your teeth, and the new dentist are just a conscientious about their practice too. If you’re looking for an orthodontist, look no further! You’ll be extremely pleased at Trinity Orthodontics.

Stephanie S. from Broomfield, CO (Source: Yelp)


I love my orthodontist! I have the high tech custom braces, and I love them! He really takes time with you, to see how things are going, and you see Dr. Nelson at every visit! 🙂 I’m an adult and my bite, and teeth were so crooked, and messed up! I’ve had my braces for 2 years, and they’re looking awesome! And as an added tip, if you have the cash to pay upfront do it! I saved nearly 800 dollars by paying upfront! Plus everyone is awesome and friendly! Love hearing the staff tell stories, and we all share some good laughs! Love this place!! 😀

I found this location on google while doing a search for an orthodontist. I am getting married in a year and I needed a quick fix for my less than perfect teeth. I convienetly scheduled an appointment online and was seen quite quickly. Upon my first visit, everyone in the office was extremely nice and super helpful. I can’t remember the name of the young lady that walked me through the scans and the process, but she was amazing! The way they do business is super efficient for the busy, working person. They do “virtual” visits, and have a fair upfront cost for everything. I would recommend this place to truly anyone.

Debbi K. from Broomfield, CO (Source: Yelp)


From the minute I walked in the door for my first appointment everyone there was so friendly. The same person that greeted me at the front desk was the person that went with me through the whole examination and consultation process and I really liked that. My husband was able to join me during my whole visit, too. I did not have to wait more than a couple minutes in the waiting room and the doctor was on time to see me in the exam room. Everyone there was honest, efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend!
