What is a Prosthodontist?
As a prosthodontist, Dr. Patterson is a member of a select specialty recognized by the American Dental Association that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment planning and restoration of unaesthetic, missing or severely damaged teeth. To achieve this, Dr. Patterson has gone through several years of rigorous training beyond dental school in materials, techniques and technologies. Further more, Dr. Patterson has taken exhaustive oral and written exams and been awarded Board Certification by the American Board of Prosthodontists. This extra training means he can help you understand all of the different treatment options available to you. He works closely with general dentists, as well as other dental specialists (oral surgeons, periodontists, endodontists and orthodontists) to make sure that all treatment you receive is done by the most qualified and experienced providers available. So whether you need routine dental care, have a single discolored tooth, or need more extensive dental work, Mountain Springs Advanced Dental is here to help you achieve and maintain a healthy smile that you can be proud of.
FAMILY, COSMETIC AND PROSTHETIC DENTISTRY
Here at Mountain Springs Advanced Dental we are more than just a general dental office. In addition to providing the best in routine hygiene and general dental care, we offer many expanded services to our patients, such as same-day crowns, cosmetic treatment, periodontal care and Invisalign. Dr. Patterson is a board certified prosthodontist with many years experience in all aspects of preventative and restorative dentistry. This means that he is trained to help you no matter the condition of your teeth. We also have our own in-house dental laboratory where we make many of our own crowns, bridges and other dental restorations and appliances. We are always looking for more and better services to provide to our patients. Our hygienists are among the best in town and do much more than just clean your teeth. We emphasize patient education at Mountain Springs Advanced Dental, and our hygienists focus on making sure our patients understand the best techniques for home care. They are trained in the most effective treatments to help you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. Our staff is friendly, helpful and will always greet you with a smile and treat you with the respect and care that you deserve. One of the things many people are most surprised about with our office is that despite the fact that Dr. Patterson is a specialist, we do take most dental insurances! This means you get specialty-level care for the same cost that you would at a regular general dentist’s office that is on your insurance plan! Why wouldn’t you want that!?!
This was my second visit Mountain Springs Advanced Dental and the atmosphere and the care was superb, as it was with the first visit. The visits were for a detailed examination, and the development of a comprehensive care plan. The entire team was genuinely friendly, introducing themselves immediately and explaining all processes and procedures. Dr. Patterson spent ~45 minute discussing his finding with me and my husband, explaining all my options clearly, to include potential cost of those options. The lack of pressure regarding my option selection was very refreshing. I left the office after making my decision feeling confident that the care I would receive would be 1st class. I would (and will) highly recommend Dr. Patterson and Mountain Springs Advanced Dental for both basic and complex dental procedures.
Dr. Patterson and team consistently provide the highest level of care and compassion to me and my family. I have been a patient of Dr. Patterson since he began his CO Springs private practice in 2012. I have two annual routine visits and whatever needs dealing with in between. I have always had positive experiences and regularly recommend Dr. Patterson to anyone who may be looking for an outstanding dentist and for sure if they are in need of specialized dental procedures. The team and Hygienists are fabulous too! Thank you Dr. Patterson for your Service to our Country and for being a wonderful dentist.
Still sitting outside the office and I couldn’t bare to drive away without making sure I review this amazing experience! Taryn was hands down the most absolutely amazing dental hygienist that I have ever had the pleasure to complete this procedure. She was incredibly knowledgeable, easy to talk to, patient, caring, so incredible at her job that right away I decided to schedule and appointment for my daughter and my fiance. Dr. Patterson has always been a delight and I trust his care completely. My mother was the first person to come to this office and I am so happy she’s referred us. We are all now looking at a future of wonderful dental health. April at the front desk was also wonderful getting everything approved through our insurance! Over all, there is not a single thing I would change in this office. Thank you all so much for all the hard work you put in!!
Working with Dr. Patterson had to have been my most enjoyable dental experience to date. I came to Dr. Patterson looking to have some cosmetic work done to correct my diastema. From the moment you walk into the office you are greeted by the friendliest front office team, and the consultation with Dr. Patterson went very smoothly. They were able to work with my insurance, and for the first time in my life, I have the smile that I have always dreamed of. Thank you for the amazing work!
