Welcome New Patients!

Dental Services

We offer many different dental services. Here are a few we specialize in.

Bridges & Crowns

Bridges are one of the restorative options available to a patient who has lost a tooth. Bridges can be an effective way to replace the tooth, stabilize the area, and restore a natural smile.

As the name implies, a crown sits atop a tooth, usually one that has been severely compromised. Crowns resemble the color and shape of the original and cover the entire outer shell of an existing tooth. They can serve a number purposes, and they generally achieve outstanding results.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.

Oral Surgery

Fillings, crowns, and other basic dental services can correct the majority of oral health problems. But here are some of the issues that require oral surgery.

Sleep Apnea

Whether you’ve just been diagnosed with sleep apnea or possibly undiagnosed, but researching the possibilities of having it, we know you have a lot of questions. What is sleep apnea? How do I know if I have it? What do I do next? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Steamboat Dental Center has partnered with Jeffrey Harrison DDS to assist our patients with Sleep Apnea and get you sleeping well again.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Good smiles can contribute to a person’s happiness, relationships, and self-esteem. Some people, though, are uncomfortable with their smile because of tooth loss, tooth decay, or discoloring. Some even experience discomfort or pain because of tooth loss or decay.

Meet Richard Witty, DMD

Why Choose Us

We are a dental practice that strives to provide comprehensive dental services in a comfortable manner. Our practice is devoted to maintaining, restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures that will result in beautiful smiles!

State of the Art Equipment and Techniques

Digital x-rays reduce radiation exposure by over 95% compared to conventional film x-rays. This makes the use of dental x-rays extremely safe for our patients. In addition, they allow us to greatly improve our diagnostic capabilities by enlarging, digitally enhancing and improving the quality of the images produced. Digital x-rays can be emailed to other doctors for instantaneous review and consultation, which previously relied on regular mail and could often take several weeks to occur.

Most importantly, digital radiography allows us to treat our patients with the safest, most accurate means medical science has available.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

A Positive Experience

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

High Standards

We adhere to a strict standard of excellence in personalized dental care that enables us to provide the exceptional quality dental services that our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Training & Expertise

As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.

Our Patients Are Like Family

We recently moved to Steamboat Springs and was referred to Dr. Witty at Steamboat Dental Center.  My last dentist had all the lasers and cool things that made my visits there quick and easy.  That’s what I was looking for in a new dentist and was so happy to find it at Steamboat Dental Center.  Jaime, the office manager, was amazing at working around my family’s crazy schedule and was just a joy to talk with.  Dr. Witty is so easy going and makes you feel comfortable immediately.  Professional, smart and welcoming.  I’m so happy to have found my family’s new dentist at Steamboat Dental Center.

H4 Agency

I can not express my gratitude for this office and staff. I had an emergency dental need and they got me right in and stayed late to get me back on my feet. They were so understanding and positive, which helps when you are scared! I would highly recommend this amazing dental practice and dentist!

Larisa Woycio

Went there for a dental emergency, so glad that I found this place, the atmosphere was great, everyone was very nice and Dr Witty was awesome, very easy and informative. After we were done he even told me that if i started feeling bad again that night to call him on his cell, never had such great treatment from a dentist, easily the best I have even been to.

Michael Doss

Dr. Witty is a top tier dentist.  Their office utilizes cutting edge technology to offer me a great dental experience during an otherwise less than desirable chore (who likes going to the dentist?).  The staff’s professionalism are second to none and are great to work with all the way around.
