I brought my two boys, ages 2 and 4, for their first time dental experience. It was amazing! Dr. Rachel and her staff were so welcoming and fun. The kids have been begging me to go back to the dentist. My two year old needed dental work done shortly after this first visit, and I was amazed at the way Dr. Greg and his assistant Leah took care of him. They were reassuring to me as the parent, had so many tricks and treats up their sleeves to help him through the process, and were able to complete the necessary work on a very wiggly 2 year old. He is still asking me to go back even after a filling and a crown…. now if that doesn’t tell you how great this place is, I don’t know what would! I couldn’t be more grateful and pleased. Thank you, Big Grins!

As my sweet Josie wiped away her scared tears before walking through the front door today at Big Grins, I couldn’t help but worry that she was really going to struggle at her appointment. Brenda welcomed us with a big smile and the cute dog picture on the front desk caught Josie’s eye immediately. She has a soft spot for dogs so the distraction was perfect. But it only got better….Brenda said she would check to see if Sugar, the dog in the picture, was available to keep her company during her time at the dentist. Sugar had some time to spare and she joined Josie in the dentist chair, snuggled next to her leg, for the whole time! Thank you, Dr. Greg, for the amazing bedside manner and the funny, goofy jokes, and thanks to ALL your assistants – 2 and 4 legged! This was a great dentist experience ??
Informative, patient, competent, up-front with costs. Highly recommend this practice.– Elycia Feldman
It is always a pleasure to visit Big Grins. The staff is friendly, efficient, and makes my daughter feel at ease every time. Thank you, Dr. Greg and crew!– Heidi Frederiksen
Dr. Greg is super with our kiddos. The whole team at Big Grins does a great job.– Kristine Benett
Dr. Evans is a highly skilled and experienced pediatric dentist with a great sense of humor and ability to put kids at ease with his witty sense of humor. His dental staff are all very friendly, caring, and efficient, too.– Jackie Nguyen
We have been taking our kids to Dr. Greg for almost 20 years (a lot of kids over a span of time.) I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Dr. Greg is able to develop the best rapport with little ones on up to teenagers, helping to put them at ease and even making it a fun experience. I didn’t know that was possible! I appreciate the time he takes to visit with the patient and parents, always explaining things clearly; and I have come to completely trust his judgment. It’s one thing to develop such good relationships with the families, but he’s also a really good dentist. The staff are so kind and professional as well, and it seems like they’ve all been there for years, which I think says a lot about the healthy and positive environment Dr. Greg and the administrators provide. I know Dr. Greg does a lot of community outreach too; so basically he’s a really good guy, the dental work is top notch, and the staff are wonderful. I can’t recommend highly enough.– Kim Arnett
My 3 kids have been seeing Dr Greg for several years and couldn’t be happier. The staff is tremendous, the office is fun for the kids and relaxing for adults, and Greg is very skilled. He has a wonderful way with his patients and we actually look forward to going to the dentist. They don’t push unnecessary treatments and are very honest about things that can wait and treatments that should take priority. We drive up from Loveland and it’s definitely worth it.– Rockin Moxie
This practice is so amazing. My two year old required a filling and a crown for two different cavities, and the experience was above and beyond what I expected. The doctor (Dr Greg) and his assistant (Leah) used so many comforting strategies and were able to give my son a positive experience and also help with the necessary dental work. Another hygienist also helped soothe my 2 month old while I was helping my son. The people here go above and beyond! They use positive reinforcement, no parent shaming (already felt bad enough about two cavities), and have so many tricks and treats to get kids to enjoy their time. I’d recommend to anyone in town!– Brittany M.
As my daughter wiped away her scared tears outside of the front door at Big Grins yesterday, I did everything I could to reassure her that it was going to be fine. She was extra nervous about having a cavity filled (and maybe I was too). When we walked in, Brenda greeted us with the biggest smile and Josie immediately noticed the cute dog picture on the front desk – she has a soft spot for dogs! “Look mom! It’s Sugar!” Josie squeaked! Brenda told us Sugar might be available to help Josie through her procedure today and Josie’s eyes lit up! For the whole appointment, Sugar laid right beside Josie in the dentist chair and snuggled her leg. Dr. Greg’s bedside manner was amazing and we loved the corny jokes and silly stories. ALL of the assistants – 2 legged and 4 legged – were over the top. We left the dentist with big grins on our faces 🙂 Thank you!– Erin M
We love everyone at Big Grins! Dr. Greg is amazing, and every single staff member is wonderful too. My kids love to go to the dentist. It’s so fun there!– Shelly Rodgers
My family has been coming to Big Grins for years now (4 kids) & we love them! Dr. Greg and the entire staff are fabulous. My kids actually can’t wait to go to the dentist every 6 months. All of my questions and concerns are respectfully and thoroughly answered, and I never feel like there are any frivolous charges. I wish there were a light-up dance floor and climbing wall at my dentist’s office!– Sarah DePumpo
Dr. Greg is extremely patient and awesome with kids. If you have a child with a developmental disability I strongly recommend him. He has been the only dentist to gain the confidence of my child and he has the patience of a saint! His staff is always kind and accommodating, the office is always kept clean and the play area is a great addition for the kiddos. He also see’s toddlers as well and knows how to make the kids feel calm and at ease in his presence. Fort Collins is lucky to have a pediatric dentist like him practicing in our area.– Captain Kidd
I had been procrastinating on finding a pediatric dentist. My co-workers raved about how much their kids love coming here. We were not disappointed. We were blown away by how awesome the playroom is. My son loved the rotating climbing wall! My husband and I were so happy with how friendly, knowledgeable, and patient all of the staff were. Going to the dentist is always a very stressful situation for me, but I have no doubt that my kids will have a very different experience with dentists because of this amazing place!– Sparrow Evans
Best crew in around, they have guided my 3 their whole lives it’s very apparent as my kids turn into their teens these guys know exactly what they are doing. Thank you thank you. Fry family– Brandon Fry
My kiddos have been clients of Dr. Greg’s for umpteen years… I don’t even remember…maybe 16 years? In fact, we followed him to his current practice at Big Grins. We have absolutely loved this man and his staff. They have gone over and beyond our expectations countless times and have treated us like we’re just another member of their big happy family. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Greg’s chair-side manner with the kids; not only is he so good and kind to them, he knows and understands their fears. He is very knowledgeable and professional and quickly noticed a tumor growing in one of kids’ mouths when she was young and took immediate action to recommend an oral surgeon. His staff bought me flowers when our family was going through an exceptionally difficult time, which was something I’ll never forget. Slowly my kids have been graduating from pediatric dentistry and each time it gets harder to say good-bye…soon we’ll just have to stop by just to say hi! Thank you Dr. Greg and all your wonderful staff at Big Grins for not only being our dentist, but also our friends! We love you all!– Christy Knutson
Amazing service and attentiveness to the kids! My 3-year-old was nervous for her first “big girl” appointment. But Cheyenne’s caring demeanor put her at ease as soon as we walked in. Cheyenne did a great job of explaining everything to my daughter, letting her hold and feel the dental tools before using them on her teeth, and just overall did a fantastic job! Dr. Greg did a great job as well, again making my daughter feel comfortable and actually excited to show him her teeth.– Ellen N
Absolutely amazing place. Their comfort dog helped my daughter get much needed treatment completed! The staff must love their jobs! You can feel the family centered environment from the moment you walk in. I love how Dr. Greg treats my child individually.– Anya P.
I have been coming here since I was 2 and I’m almost 16. We love it here.– Brandon Lange
Our kids absolutely love going to the dentist because of the great atmosphere at Big Grins!– Sarah Newman
We love Big Grins!! Absolutely the best dentist for kids in town!– Reeta Treat
Friendly staff, Dr.Greg is great with kids, my kids loving going here!– Correia B
Big Grins is by far the best pediatric dentistry in Northern Colorado. Not only is the establishment clean and perfectly thought of for children and parents, the staff is amazing. It’s a family feeling that cares about you and your family more than you know! Dr Greg knows how to make any child feel welcomed and excited to be well at the dentist! He’s amazing at his job! We are lucky to have found such an amazing place!– Sydnie Chapman
We noticed that our 5 year old kid lost half piece of one front teeth on Friday night. We sent picture and message to Dr. Greg during weekend because we do not know how bad it is and concern her teeth root got infected. Dr. Greg replied our message on weekend and told us it was okay to fix it on Monday and keep the teeth clean during the weekend. On the next Monday, Dr. Greg and the office lady helped us squeeze a spot so my kid’s teeth got fixed, although their office was extremely busy on Monday. We really appropriate it! We are very glad that we did choose Dr. Greg as our kids dentist, which is the best choice we did ever!– Lili Kong
The environment is very welcoming and the staff made my son feel comfortable.– Heather Kirby
Best pediatric dentist office ever!!! My son had a bad toothache and they were able to accommodate and get his tooth taken care of quickly! I was in awe of all the staff and the dentist. They were all so friendly helpful and answered any questions or concerns I had. They are exceptional with the kids and made them feel happy and welcomed. The procedure for my 6 year went smooth and he did so well throughout the whole process because of the staff and dentist. Highly recommend this dental office!– Angela Atkin
Big Grins was fantastic! The set-up of the office, friendly and knowledgable staff, and experience of Dr. Greg is hard to surpass. I was referred to Big Grins by several friends and am so glad we are now going there for my son’s dental needs!– Elizabeth Hericz
Excellent care and professionalism from each person we encountered. We we’re lucky enough to spend some time with the office pup, Sugar, too – superb experience. Oh, the dentist is top-notch as well…– Matt Thompson
All of my 6 children have been going to see Dr. Evans for years. I have nothing but recommendations for them. They are great with communication – with you as a parent and with your children so they understand that their dental health is important. I have 1 child with autism. For those parents out their struggling to find good dental care for your child with special needs – this is a good fit. He loves Big Grins and they always make him feel comfortable. The short appointments are so important for children to be comfortable. My kids still get excited when I tell them they get to go to the dentist. They have absolutely no fear and this is due to the way they have treated my kids for years. I have recommended them for years to other parents – and have heard from friends how happy they are with how their children are treated. Thank you for making such a great place Dr. Evans. Your employees are happy and it shows. I know I sound like a commercial, trust me I have no affiliation other than being a long time parent of 6 happy clients. When you find a place like this, it is only fair to share it with other parents looking for the best for their children.– Sally
Big grins is so fun- our kids can hardly wait to go to the dentist! Anytime any one kiddo has an appt, the other 2 want to tag along just to goof around in the play room that precedes the actual dentist office. Genius! What a great set up! Also we love Dr. Greg— he helped us out with some pretty serious baby dental work for our son at 11 months old (Henry’s enamel on his 2 bottom teeth dissolved). He did a great job! All of the staff is friendly and fun to see! Thanks Big Grins!– Kelsey Blair Mooney
Taking both boys to the dentist is always a good experience with Big Grins. The office staff is so welcoming and kind.– Chanda Elkins
This was my 3 year olds first dental appointment and it went wonderfully! The entire crew at Big Grins are exceptional at what they do. I am very impressed! Thank you for being a great place for the kiddos!– Sarah Aragon
I had a hard time finding a dentist I liked for my son. I felt like the ones I had been to either didn’t like kids or were very unthorough because my son is so young. This dentist and his staff were so thorough and comforting to my son and I. We even held him across both our laps so he would be more comfortable and feel safe. He did a great job and found a small cleft palate that not even his pediatrician or ENT had found in less than a minute all while my baby is squirming and probably biting (teething stinks!) He was very knowledgeable and helpful when it came to patient and parent education. I will absolutely keep bringing my son here and recommend him to anyone. Great experience.– Clarissa G
Wonderful atmosphere, knowledgeable and welcoming staff. Dr. Greg Evans made my son’s first experience at the dentist super easy. It felt natural, not forced. He answered all of our questions and we left there feeling great! We’re looking forward to our next visit!– Tory Pappas
I just want to say that not only is Dr. Greg absolutely amazing but so is his entire office staff!! From the front office staff to the back of the office they were there willing to help when we had an issue with insurance. You can 110% tell that these children are their top priority. I will never go anywhere else and will forever recommend this office. Thank you for all that y’all helped with today.
– Jessica Hornsby
We have been going here for a decade. They have a super cool play area that off-sets the “work” of dental appointments. The kid always wants to go! They have laughing gas that they can use for cavities, so the kid doesn’t dislike going next time. They are kind and caring. They have coffee for adults. Filling appointments are super short in time. I highly recommend.
