Your family’s health is important to you.
Trying to find the perfect Longmont dentist to protect your family’s oral health can be challenging.
How do you choose the right one? What should you be looking for?
Here are five helpful tips that can help you make the right decision for you and your family.
Tip #1: Choose an office that is conveniently located
This can help when you are scheduling appointments for your busy family.
An office whose location makes it easy to drop by for appointments is essential not only for your convenience but also for your oral health.
Because being able to get to an appointment quickly makes it more likely that you will follow through with scheduled appointments!

We are happy to work around your schedule and are always welcoming new patients from Longmont and the surrounding communities, such as Niwot, Boulder, Lyons, Firestone, Frederick, Loveland, Fort Collins, Denver, Littleton, Superior, Broomfield, and Erie.
Tip #2: Check the dentist’s education and training background
Many dentists have a website where they list their education and special training. You will usually find this information on the biography page for the doctor.
You want a dentist whose background shows a real passion for dentistry – not one who settles for just basic education and skills.
What should you look for?
- Do they have any specialized training for the services they offer?
- Do they attend continuing education courses to keep up with all the newest developments in dentistry?
- Have they won any awards that prove their proficiency?
If you check the bio page of our Longmont cosmetic dentist, Dr. Chris Goldtrap, you will learn he:
- Graduated from the University of Tennessee School of DentistryOpens in the UTHSC website
- Is a fully qualified dental surgeon
- Has the distinguished achievement of being a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral ImplantologyOpens in the ABOI website
- Has a Fellowship in the Academy of General DentistryOpens in the AGD website
- Is the father of five children who understands the special needs of kids dentistry
All of this tells you Dr. Goldtrap has a real desire to provide his patients with the best dentistry techniques and skills available.
It’s not a job for him; it’s a dedication to helping others!
That’s the kind of dentist you want taking care of the health of your family.
Tip #3: They should provide the latest in dental technology
Having the latest and greatest in dental technology isn’t just for show.
Why is it important?
Because dentistry has made some fabulous advancements in recent years. The latest dental technologies provide you with real benefits, such as quicker appointments, better results, and more comfort.
An office that makes the often significant investment in money and time to procure new technology and train their team to use it proves they are a patient-first practice.
At Artistic Smiles, we are proud to be able to offer our patients the best in advanced technology.
Here are a few of the technologies we utilize and a little information on how they benefit you:
- CEREC – uses digital technology to design, create, and place dental crowns in just one visit!

- Digital x-rays – less exposure to radiation, immediately available, easy to transfer and share.
- CariVu – detects cavities and cracks in teeth before they become significant, costly problems.

Tip #4: They have services to ensure your comfort
A trip to the dentist can be an anxiety-ridden occasion for many people. Even if you don’t experience dental anxiety, sitting in a dental chair probably isn’t high on your list of fun things to do!
A first-class Longmont dentist should provide in-office amenities and services that make your visit more relaxing and enjoyable.
Our family-oriented dental practice puts patient comfort first in all of our treatments, so we provide in-office amenities and sedation dentistry options to help our nervous patients get the treatment they need and still stay relaxed.
Tip #5: They offer patient specials and help with financing
Dentistry can be a significant investment.
A Longmont family dentist who cares about you and your oral health will make it easy for you to afford the care you need.
Do they offer patient specials? Will they bill your dental insurance? What about in-office financing for those without dental insurance?
At Artistic Smiles, we are happy to be able to offer our patients all of the above!
What are some of our specials that you can use to save yourself some money?
- 50% off sedation dentistry
- $999 for a dental crown – save $400

We want to help you and your family have healthy smiles for a lifetime!
