GATEWAY PARK DENTAL
Gateway Park Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is a dental office built on the foundation of treating our patients like friends.
We are all about greeting you by name, creating a lasting relationship, and offering you the same treatment that we would a best friend or family member. We take the time to sit down with you, ask you about your needs, and develop a treatment plan together. That way, we know that we’re offering you just the right treatment, formed through a friendship. We are proud to be your family dentist.
At Gateway Park Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, visits to the dentist are smooth and easy. We provide gentle care in a calm environment, and offer heated massages, a beverage bar, noise reduction headphones, and more—all to make your visit smooth and easy.
On top of that, we make it easy to keep track of your next appointment. We use an automated appointment reminder system that will call your phone two days prior to your appointment to remind you when you are scheduled to see us. Just listen to the message and follow the prompts to confirm. If you are unable to respond to the message, a member of our staff will contact you to confirm your scheduled visit.
Our dental office features high-tech equipment and is a paper-free workplace, which means all x-rays and charting are made and recorded with the aid of the computer. Digital charting uses consistent charting methods that are accurate and precise, making it easy to read your dental chart and see up-to-date information. Digital charting standardizes the charting process so it is clear, easy to understand, and enables us to provide the most accurate and precise care. When needed, this method also allows us to quickly and securely share information with your other health care providers.
We make insurance claims easy with electronic claim processing. Rather than sending your dental claim through the mail, it is sent electronically to your insurance company with the click of the button. By filing your claim electronically, information is submitted more efficiently and with fewer errors. Turnaround time on claims is faster, and fewer claims are returned or denied. We are happy to submit your dental claims to your insurance company on your behalf.
Our office employs a variety of technological advancements that keep our patients safe, provide better treatment outcomes, and make communication easier.
In our Aurora office, we use digital radiography, which allows us to take x-rays using up to 90 percent less radiation than conventional film x-rays. Using this technology, we are able to take an x-ray of your mouth by using a small sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to a computer. The result is a highly detailed image of your mouth that can easily be enhanced to better diagnose dental concerns and determine the very best treatment for each case.

When needed, this method also allows us to quickly and securely share information with your other health care providers.

Our Aurora dentist office utilizes electronic claims processing. This means that rather than sending your dental claim through the mail, it is sent electronically to your insurance company with the click of the button. By filing your claim electronically, information is submitted more efficiently and with fewer errors. This benefits our patients because the turnaround time on claims is faster and fewer claims are returned or denied. We are happy to submit your dental claims to your insurance company on your behalf.
We use a small camera about the size of a pen, called an intraoral camera, to help clearly see the condition of your teeth and gums. With this advanced technology, we can zoom in on small diseased areas, cracks, chips, and worn metal fillings with extreme precision. The full-color images taken with the intraoral camera are sent to a computer screen so we can clearly see and diagnose dental problems much earlier than with traditional dental technology. Because images are displayed on our screens, patients will also be able to see areas being worked on and are able to gain a better understanding of dental procedures being performed. Dental claims are also more successfully processed when the insurance company has a picture of the tooth that was worked on. Learn more by visiting our office or by calling (303) 307-8282.
Izolation and Magnification
Following our goal of high-quality dentistry, our office uses the Izolation system that improves patients’ comfort, lowers procedure time, and provides a better outcome. The soft flexible mouthpiece keeps the tongue and cheek out of the way while the bite block gives the patient's jaw something to relax on so there are no worries about the jaw staying open.
The dentist, hygienist, and assistant all wear surgical loupes, which magnify the oral cavity. This allows our team to zoom in on the area we are working on to provide a high-quality finished product that would be impossible to do with the naked eye.
Our office in Aurora strives to make your dental visit as comfortable as possible. This includes a beverage bar in the waiting room with coffee, tea, cocoa, and cider. We also have free Wi-Fi and a television in the waiting room. During treatment, we have relaxing music, noise reduction headphones, heat and massage in the chairs, and blankets and pillows for your comfort.
