Gentle Dentist in Wellington CO - Foothills Family Dental - tooth1

Here at Foothills, we promise to help provide you with expert care to enhance your smile - whether your dental needs are simple, complex, or anything in-between! Operating in both our South Location and Old Town locations, we give Fort Collins residents a range of different opportunities to clean, straighten, whiten and restore their teeth.

We offer top-of-the-line sedation dentistry services for anyone who wants to be calm and relaxed for the duration of their dentist visit. Contact us before your visit to let us know if you're interested in sedation dentistry for your next visit.

As a family-oriented practice, we believe in teaching proper oral hygiene skills from the moment your child can hold a toothbrush. Learning how to properly care for his or her teeth early can help ensure lifelong oral health for your child. From teaching children about how their diet affects their teeth to protecting their teeth by applying sealants, our pediatric dental services help young patients learn the right way to maintain a healthy smile as they transition from baby teeth to permanent teeth.


Emergency Dentist Services for Wellington Residents

Don't wait, get the dental care you need ASAP!

Given how delicate your teeth are and how heavily you rely on them, responding properly to dental emergencies is critical. The sooner you obtain the emergency services you need, the easier it is to save your teeth and avoid further complications. Foothills Family Dental is committed to solving dental emergencies as soon as necessary to protect your teeth and preserve your smile.

You need immediate attention if you've experienced the following:

  • Bleeding: Large amounts of blood coming from your teeth indicate that they or the roots and gums beneath them have been seriously harmed. If your teeth start to bleed, place a wet, cold compress next to them and call us immediately.
  • Swelling: As with bleeding, swelling around your teeth indicates that there is some serious dental problem that may not otherwise be visible yet. You should take the same precautions.
  • Severe Pain: Any amount of dental pain is a bad sign, but especially severe pain indicates that time is of the essence. If the pain is serious enough that you cannot concentrate or it persists for long periods of time, you should seek immediate attention from a dentist.
  • Physical Damage: If a tooth is chipped, broken, or knocked out entirely, you need to act quickly. Recover the bits of tooth that have fallen out and get to a dentist as soon as you can.

To keep a healthy mouth and bright smile, you need proper regular cleanings from a qualified and experienced dentist. We take extra measures to ensure that your oral health is as healthy as it can be. At Foothills Family Dental, it's no secret that we treat our patients like family, we take the extra time to effectively communicate with each and every patient. Our team understands that no two mouths are alike which is why we like to talk in-depth with all our patients to discuss their oral health, any treatments needed and preventative maintenance plans to keep their teeth healthy.

Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.

Through one-on-one consultations and in-depth treatment explanations, our patients are able to better understand the condition of their smiles and select dental care that contributes to their long-term oral health.

At regular check ups, your dentist & hygienist will perform the following:

  • Examination of Diagnostic X-Rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-Rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
  • Oral Cancer Screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum Disease Evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of Tooth Decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
  • Examination of Existing Restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.

Reviews About Our Dental Services

Excellent Practice All Around

"From the helpful front desk ladies to the very informative dental technicians/ hygienists, and of course Dr. Richard, this practice is surely one of the best. I am continually impressed by the knowledgeable and friendly staff. I never leave feeling like I have unanswered questions about my healthcare. I will continue to receive my dental care with Dr. Richard and refer my friends and family to Foothills Family Dental for as long as I live in Colorado."*
