Dr. Michael J. Franquemont and our team like to say that we never treat a stranger. We are a small, family-run dental practice, so we can spend quality time getting to know you and understanding your oral health goals. It’s not only a pleasure for us to interact with our patients in this way, but it allows us to tailor your treatment to fit your unique and specific needs.
Known as “Dr. Mike” by his patients, Dr. Franquemont opened our dental practice in Centennial in 2005. You will appreciate our warm and friendly approach and a family that works together to bring your family the latest and best that dentistry has to offer.
Working alongside Dr. Mike is Lisa, our acting office manager, and Kris, our receptionist, who will greet you with a smile.
We are pleased to treat patients in Centennial and the surrounding communities of Littleton, Denver, Highlands Ranch, Aurora, and beyond. Our family looks forward to welcoming your family to our dental practice in person, but until then, please take a moment to get to know us!
Dr. Michael J. Franquemont
"I chose dentistry because I had very painful TMJ problems as a teenager and was helped greatly by my childhood dentist. The relief I experienced motivated me to help others solve their dental problems. Now, I stay with dentistry because I enjoy spending time with my patients."
Dr. Michael J. Franquemont ("Dr. Mike" to his patients) received his undergraduate degree in molecular and cellular biology from the University of Arizona. He then attended the University of Colorado School of Dentistry, where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 1999.
For over 20 years, Dr. Franquemont has been providing high-quality general dentistry to patients of all ages. He enjoys getting to know his patients, hearing about their adventures, solving their dental problems, and creating beautiful smiles. He stays current with the latest advances in dentistry and invests in new technology when it benefits his patients. Dr. Franquemont's experience with TMJ pain as a teen drove him to study various treatment methods that he now uses to provide patients with the relief they so desperately need.
