“Dr. Helm and his team exceeded my expectations and did excellent work. I am very happy with my daughter’s results, and I will recommend Dr. Helm’s office again and again.” -Mari M.

Dr. Nathan Helm and his orthodontic team understand that the decision of who to choose for your orthodontic care can be overwhelming. A common misperception among new patients and parents is that they will receive the same orthodontic care and results from anywhere they go, so it’s just a matter of finding the lowest price. Unfortunately, this is not true. There is a wide range of treatment philosophies, levels of training and experience, and financial and insurance considerations you should consider before choosing an orthodontist. Check out our top-10 list of why to choose Helm Orthodontics to better understand what makes Dr. Helm and his practice uniquely qualified to provide your family orthodontic care.

  1. We Provide Individual Care and Attention

    Your smile is unique, so why wouldn’t your orthodontic treatment be as well? Dr. Helm recognizes that no two patients are alike. That is why he takes the time to evaluate your specific needs and develop a treatment plan tailored to fit those needs. And since Dr. Helm is the only doctor in our practice, he will be the one to help carry out your plan every time you are in the office. You will be surprised at the time and attention you receive from Dr. Helm and his highly skilled team.

  2. We Provide Honest Care You Can Trust

    Dr. Helm will take an honest and conservative approach to your orthodontic treatment—always doing what he feels is in your best interest. He will not recommend unnecessary treatment!

  3. We Offer Customized and Affordable Payment Plans

    We believe finances should not stand in the way of you achieving a beautiful, confident smile. We work with families from all walks of life, so don’t worry, we will work with you to create a customized payment plan that will fit your family’s budget.

  4. Our Fees are All-Inclusive

    We won’t nickel-and-dime you. Your investment in your orthodontic treatment includes everything needed to complete your treatment from start to finish. Beware of hidden price tactics out there that require you to unexpectedly pay more for the removal of your braces or for retainers and orthodontic records at the end of your treatment!

  5. We Help You Maximize Your Orthodontic Insurance Benefits

    We are in-network with most major insurances. That means you can take full advantage of your insurance benefits, making your out-of-pocket investment even more affordable. At your free consultation appointment, we will let you know the benefits that are available and how those can be best used for your care. And if you don’t have orthodontic insurance, no worries, ask us about our Reasons To Smile Program that we have created for patients just like you!

  6. Dr. Helm Is the Only Private-Practice, Board-Certified Orthodontist in the Area

    What’s the difference between an orthodontist and board-certified orthodontist? Dr. Helm completed a three-year orthodontic residency beyond dental school to become an orthodontist (specialist at moving teeth and creating smiles). He then completed a rigorous voluntary board certification process to become board-certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. He is the only private-practice, board-certified orthodontist practicing in Green Valley Ranch, Northeast Denver, Northeast Aurora, and many of the other surrounding communities. In fact, less than 50% of all practicing orthodontists in the United States are board certified. Quality matters when it comes to your smile and bite!

  7. We Have a Proven Track Record

    Local dentists refer their patients, employees, and even their family to Dr. Helm because of the trust and confidence they have developed from seeing his work firsthand. In fact, every year since 2013 Colorado dentists have selected Dr. Helm as a “Top Orthodontist” as featured in 5280 Magazine. Our current and past patients also refer friends and family members because they want them to enjoy the same life-changing smile and orthodontic experience!

  8. We Take a Team Approach

    Dr. Helm takes time to communicate with your general dentist because he wants to create a beautiful smile for you as well as achieve the best possible overall oral health in the process. Not all orthodontists take the time to provide this level of care. Dr. Helm recognizes that your dentist plays a critical role in that process, and places a high priority on communication and cooperation with him or her.

  9. We Offer a Modern, High-Tech Office

    From digital x-rays and paperless charting to computerized fingerprint appointment check-in and e-mail/text message appointment reminders, our state-of-the-art office was designed with the technology and amenities to provide efficient and enjoyable orthodontic treatment for any member of your family.

  10. We Provide Before and After School Appointments

    Although missing some school or work is inevitable, we do our best to minimize this by offering routine appointments during early morning, late afternoon, evening, and lunch hours.
