Dental care services

You can get dental care services at four Axis Health System locations. Our dentists and hygienists are skilled and ready to serve you. First, we encourage preventive care with regular dental exams and cleanings. Also, we teach patients about good dental hygiene. Second, our teams offers emergency and restorative dental services. For example, this includes x-rays and fillings. In addition, our team offers extractions (tooth pulling), root canals and crowns.

Patients of all ages

We accept new patients of all ages at our dental clinics. Moreover, we encourage early care for children – starting with the first tooth. For instance, our care teams gently teach young children how to brush, floss and take care of their teeth.

Health First Colorado (Medicaid)

Our dental clinics accept Health First Colorado dental benefits (Colorado’s Medicaid program). To learn more about specific dental benefits for children and adults, visit Health First Colorado’s benefits page. 

Payments accepted

You have a variety of payment options for our dental care services. Axis accepts Medicaid, CHP+, and people without dental insurance, and offer a sliding-fee scale for those who qualify. However, we do not accept private dental insurance at this time. If you do have private dental insurance, we will collect the charge from you. Then we will give you what you need to file for reimbursement from your insurance company.

Patient rooms at the Durango Oral Health Clinic have beautiful mountain views.
