Here are three differences as to why to choose Cherry Creek DDS as your dentist in Denver:

  1. Personal care. You're not a number, you're a person - and we work to get to know the full you! So anytime you come in, it's like seeing old friends, not feeling like a transaction.
  2. 35+ years of experience. Dr. Hagen has seen nearly all dental situations and can provide solutions to any challenge.
  3. White-glove service. Many dentists are hindered by what dental plans allow. We aren't! We individualize dental care just for you.

We often see entire families and are told by patients they love the welcoming atmosphere and relationships they build here. We'd love to welcome you!

An important question to ask!

We are out-of-network for all dental insurance plans. This may lead to higher out-of-pocket costs for you.

Because we aren't beholden to insurance companies, our standards of care can be much higher than other insurance-contracted dentists. You truly do get what you pay for!

It's far greater than you might think.

Some reporting on the topic:

"When you look at the dental insurance model, it doesn’t protect the patient from financial risk. It’s the opposite,” said Marko Vujicic, chief economist and vice president of the Health Policy Institute at the American Dental Association." (source: Vox)

"...whether you have an employer-provided plan or a private one, you'll still pay a lot out of pocket if you need extensive work.

And if you buy dental insurance yourself and wind up needing only basic care, you could end up paying more in monthly premiums than if you paid for the individual services yourself." (Source: Consumer Reports)

No, we are not a Medicaid-approved provider.


"I'm a new patient, but this has been an incredible dental experience thus far. Not only did Dr. Hagen take the time to meet with me when I first arrived, but he sat and chatted with me for so long and answered all my dental worries."

-H. Stephanie, 5-star Google review

"An excellent experience. I've felt well-cared for and important from beginning to end with the dentist, office manager, and hygienist. Thank you for the small touches that make me feel comfortable."
