Farewell to Dr. Tom Rikli, Welcome Dr. Kurtis Hammack

Dear Valued Patients and Friends,

We are writing to share some special news. Firstly, after a dental career of more than 40 years, Dr. Tom Rikli is retiring in June. Dr. Rikli takes with him the great satisfaction and joy of having served each one of his patients well, in some cases caring for multiple generations of families! He is grateful that his patients have entrusted their dental needs to him and is proud to have helped build a thriving and caring dental practice. We wish Dr. Rikli and his wife Monica much happiness in whatever adventures await them and in the blessing of time spent with their beautiful children and grandkids.

We are pleased to announce the newest member of our team, Kurtis Hammack, DDS. Dr. Hammack graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry in 2012 and completed a residency in Advanced General Dentistry the following year. He has proudly served as a dental officer in the United States Air Force, both overseas and at the Air Force Academy, earning the distinction of 2017 Clinical Dentist of the Year for outstanding dental care, community outreach and customer service.

What Do Our Patients Say

A Dental Clinic Serving Colorado Springs & The Surrounding Area

  • No dental insurance? No problem!

  • Dental savings plan to help keep quality dental costs affordable

  • We are your local Colorado Springs, CO dentist

One of the most common concerns dental patients have is about how they can affordably receive the dental treatments they may need.  Patients who have dental insurance typically are provided a benefit that allows them to receive examinations, x-rays, and simple cleanings at a minimal out of pocket cost, as well as some assistance with any additional treatment that may be needed.  Unfortunately, many people do not have access to dental insurance and are left with the total financial responsibility for their entire treatment.

Being a Top Dentist in Colorado Springs, we are proud to offer a dental savings plan that helps patients without insurance affordably receive the care that they need.

If you have any questions regarding treatment options, payment information, insurance, location, etc.,
please let us know!
