Expands Access To State-of-the-Art Dental Care In State 


WESTMINSTER—Aspen Dental has officially opened its doors in Westminster, Colorado with the opening of a brand-new office, bringing a renowned dentist to the community. This is the first Aspen Dental practice in the state of Colorado, as Aspen Dental continues to break down barriers and bring comprehensive, affordable care to patients across the country.

The new office is located at 9409 Sheridan Blvd and is led by licensed dentist, Dr. Laura Tappe, who was the clinical director of a New Hampshire-based Aspen Dental practice for more than 6 years.  Dr. Tappe and her team will provide a full range of dental services, create new jobs in the Westminster community, and improve access to quality oral healthcare, all at one convenient location. Dr. Tappe received her DDS degree from West Virginia University.

“We’re looking forward to opening our doors in the Westminster community and I’m proud to share this state-of-the-art dental facility with patients seeking everything from emergency to preventative oral care,” said Dr. Laura Tappe, Aspen Dental independent owner. “From the moment you walk through the doors, our staff is ready to meet your needs in a way that is convenient, accessible, efficient and compassionate.” 

Independently-owned and operated, Aspen Dental offices offer patient-friendly programs and services that make it easier for patients to get the dental care they need, including: 

  • Personalized treatment and friendly service. Each patient receives a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan designed by the dentist, with long-term oral and overall health in mind. 
  • Safe and clean care environments. We’ve always been committed to the highest safety standards, and in a world where things are changing fast, we have implemented heightened cleaning, hygiene and safety standards, symptom screening for appointments, social distancing at our offices, and now offer virtual visits for our patients. You can learn more about our health and safety protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic through our Smile Wide, Smile Safe Promise.
  • Affordable dental care. Aspen Dental practices are committed to keeping prices low so that patients can get the care they need. The practice works with most insurance providers and handles the paperwork, saving patients time and hassle, and offers free new-patient exams and X-rays for patients without dental insurance. And since no one likes an unexpected bill, the practice offers a clear, detailed estimate on the cost of treatment to give patients peace of mind.
  • On-site denture labs and Denture Money Back Guarantee. Every Aspen Dental practice is equipped with an on-site denture laboratory, which helps facilitate quick turnaround for denture repairs, relines or adjustments. 

Office hours will be Mondays from 9am to 7pm, Tuesdays through Wednesdays from 8am to 6pm, Thursdays from 7am to 5pm, and Fridays from 7am to 12pm.
