I have been a patient of Dr Kawulok's for 40 years. He is the Absolute Best Dentist besides being a wonderful person. He is a perfectionist. I have had major dental issues and he has always taken good care of me. I have never had any kind of a problem with any dental work that he had done. His staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and caring. I wouldn't go to any other Dentist ever.

I see Dr. Kent for TMJ treatment. She is also ways great and does an exceptional job of explaining what is going on with my jaw, and how the treatments will help. TMJ is very frustrating and painful, however I'm thankful for a specialist like Dr. Kent.

If there is a more professional, higher quality dental office in Boulder County, I would be shocked! Both dentists and hygienists take my comfort and concerns seriously and the cleanings, fillings and crowns I’ve required over the years have been painless and lasted longer than similar procedures at other offices I've experienced in my (now) long life. I can say nothing more than thank you, Whole Family Dentistry!

I’ve been a patient of Dr Kawulok ever since he graduated from dental school in the early 90’s. He’s always met all my expectations and then some.His staff members are professional, knowledgeable, and kind. I’d highly recommend this group from a simple cleaning to a tooth extraction and replacement.

From the time I entered and was greeted by Kaydene, the receptionist, to the time I left and was processed for payment by (I forgot her name), I felt that my teeth and my particulars were foremost in the staff’s minds. And this absolutely includes Janice who performed a masterful periodontal cleaning as well as explained what different aspects of it were. I cannot speak more highly for the staff at Whole Family Dentistry!

Whole Family Dentistry was recommended to me by another (retired) local dentist after I complimented her smile, and I am very impressed and happy with my experience. Fortunately I was able to schedule a cleaning and initial consultation all in one appointment. Never have I had such a thorough exam/evaluation and am thankful for all the information and recommendations Dr. Kent and my hygienist Christine provided me with during my appointment. Glad to have found this practice.

I Love, Love, Love Whole Family Dentistry!! Doctor Kawulok has been my dentist since 1974 and, although I have been thrilled with his work and who he is as a person throughout the decades, it is always good to get feedback from an outside party, which happened when I visited a dentist in Santa Fe when I was living there for just a few years, “Wow, who is your dentist?!? He does such beautiful work!! He’s an artist!It was a great confirmation of what I already knew.If that’s not enough, the support staff is awesome! I received a warm, joyful welcome each time I step into their office and the dental hygienists are kind, magnificently skilled, and wonderful people.I leave their office with pearly white teeth and a big smile on my face and in my heart.I highly recommend Whole Family Dentistry!Sukey

Shortly after leaving Oklahoma for vacation to Colorado I had a filling fall out. I went into Whole Family Dentistry honestly thinking there was no hope of getting this fixed. OMG, they were able and willing to work me in. All the staff were amazing and professional! Dr Kent is truly one of a kind and if it wasn’t 14 hours away she would be my primary dentist! I could not say thank you enough to these fine folks.

The best most expert and precise dental work I have experienced (over several decades ... and in very competitive cities). It is a marvelous practice, calm, expert, and personable.
Excellent thorough cleaning by Judy Ulrich. I will never get by teeth cleaned by anyone else! Everyone in the office is so friendly and helpful. I always enjoy my mornings at the dentist!

Dr. Kawulok is a miracle worker with cosmetic dentistry. I am having three implants and his preparatory work and temporary denture have not only given me a great smile again but he also saw my bite was off making my jaw recede. Which he just fixed today. I had no idea. In addition, he is personable and is a good listener. On top of this, he has the most kind, sympathetic, humorous, professional and engaging staff. I feel like I have another family in his office. I heartily and enthusiastically recommend Whole Family Dentistry.

I have Learned 2 things in my Late 20's1. Verify and do your own research on all providers.2. Don't ignore major body systems like your teeth.After years of neglecting my smile under the excuse of : "I move too often to find a dentist" , in 2014 I found a provider in Longmont CO, and received less than desirable results. I felt like I left his office in worse condition then I went it. My fiancé urged me to make an appointment with his longtime Family Dentist Dr. Ted Kawulok of Whole Family Dentistry in Boulder CO.Dental work can seem really overwhelming to a young adult if not laid out and presented in a way that makes sense for the long term. Dr Kawulok was able to tell me exactly what was going on, some underlying issues that I was having that I was not even aware of, and the best approach for my long-term oral health and gave me a plan that not only seemed achievable but exceeded my overall expectationsHis entire staff quickly Befriended me, and my long term oral health became their #1 goal. thru the entire process they assured me that the overall results would be well worth it and were always listening to my concerns and making an effort to find a solution as quickly as possible.And so it was! With every procedure Dr. Kawulok left each tooth in better shape then when he started, in this Whole Family Dentistry excels in Cosmetic Dentistry. Each tooth was cared for in correlation to the end goal- and there were also the little things like fixing an old chip in a nearby tooth, or re-cutting a filling that another dentist installed, those are the things that are truly "above and beyond". I am so happy that I was able to find a caring Dr. who was able to fix years of neglect and subpar dentistry.There have also been times were I have called Suzy the receptionist over a sharp edge or a bite that just doesn't feel right, and she always makes sure to get me in - with no run around, my business is appreciated and I am valued as a patient.Now I feel really confident in my smile and that's something I'll never take for granted.

Our family of 6 has had a wonderful experience with Dr. Ted and his whole team. We have been patients for over 30 years. Dr. Ted's approach with educating and caring for me, my wife and 4 children has been instrumental in our dental health needs. Our feeling has always been one of patient first.The best perspective and testimonial to our experience, is that we live in south Denver and have made the drive to Boulder all these years for our dental needs.Most sincerely,Ty

Dr. Ted has been our family Dentist for more than 20 years and I recommend him to anyone who needs a dentist they can count on under any circumstance. There have been many times when I needed emergency help on the weekend and Ted and his staff were there for me every time. The office staff is flawless in their courtesy and follow up. Ted has called me many evenings to make sure I was comfortable after having a crown or other extensive procedure. If you are looking for a Dentist you can count on day in and day out, I highly recommend Whole Family Dentistry.Rick Baker & Family
