River Peak Dental opened Nov 9, 2016 in Ridgway. Dr. Poe wanted to offer everything dental for our mountain communities in one convenient local place close to home. The business offers everything from the most complex cosmetic smile makeovers, full-mouth tooth replacement options, same-day crowns, all surgery needs, IV sedation, implants, and more. It’s very rare that River Peak cannot take care of whatever is needed, under our roof in the most technologically advanced way possible.

We are proud that we highly educate our patients about their oral health so they can make the best decisions possible for themselves with no pressure.
What’s new or unique at your business?
We offer totally digital 3D impressions now!!!!! So, no impression goop. Even though we are located in little ol’ Ridgway, don’t think you’re only getting small-town technology and techniques.
