Dr. Hamid Khanjari

Dr. Hamid Khanjari (“Dr. K”) originally hails from the land of 10,000 lakes, but better known as the great state of Minnesota. He moved to Colorado in 2011 in search of a new beginning and the next chapter of his life after graduating from dental school. A graduate with honors from The University of Minnesota’s School of Dentistry, he’s a mid-westerner at heart with all of the hospitality and down-home realism that comes from that part of the country. He is also rigorous and definite in his refinement of the field he loves, from simple fillings to complex smile transformations and everything in between.

Dr. Khanjari believes in caring for you like you’re family. He takes the time to get to know the real you and listens to your concerns, wants and desires. It is Dr. Khanjari’s and his team’s highest objective to create an environment where those human qualities are honored. A strong proponent of continuing education, Dr. Khanjari is a graduate of some of the most prestigious continuing dental education pursuits you could take on such as the Pacific Aesthetic Continuum, The REHAB Masterclass Mentorship and The Institute for Craniofacial Sleep Medicine to name a few. He imparts these skills to dental students when he teaches part time at The University of Colorado’s School of Dental Medicine as well as other dentists through his active participation with The Spear Education Institute. This commitment to excellence has been recognized by his peers and colleagues alike who continually vote him one of 5280’s Top Dentists year after year.

When asked why he is so passionate about the field of dentistry, Dr. Khanjari said:

“Oral health and aesthetics are unquestionably priceless. It is a provocative physical feature that directly prefaces the essence of an individual. A person’s smile is one of the first features I notice, perhaps because I love to smile myself. Personally, a smile provides an untouchable sense of self-confidence and best of all is contagious in its ability to spread positive attitudes. Additionally, smiles are widely believed to possess medicinal healing properties; after all, laughter is the best medicine! What I enjoy the most about practicing dentistry is that I get to collectively combine my aspiration to cultivate lasting relationships with my patients as well as the opportunity to display and demonstrate my artistic talents.”

Hamid, his wife Noosha, and their maltipoo son, Mr. Tyson, are blessed to call Colorado home. He and his wife enjoy traveling, cooking, trying new restaurants, music, movies and spending quality time with their family and friends. Dr. Khanjari also enjoys reading, skiing, playing guitar and cheering on his Minnesota sports teams from afar! He is a die-hard Vikings and Golden Gophers fan, but also loves the Twins, Wild and Timberwolves!

Dr. David Bennett

Dr. David Bennett has been an innovator in aesthetic dentistry for over twenty years. A Colorado resident since 1976, he attended Regis Jesuit High School where he learned the Jesuit value of being a ‘Man For Others”, attended Colorado State University, eventually graduating from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 1997. Even before graduating dental school, his father Dr. Stuart Bennett sent David to train with some of the finest aesthetic and reconstructive dentists in the world, and it was at this time that Dr. Bennett rejected the popular trend in cosmetic dentistry of making smiles that look artificial, and embraced a style of creating smiles are natural, radiant, and unique to each client. He felt this approach was more fitting to his vision of recreating nature’s perfection, and to the natural, health driven lifestyle of Colorado. Since then, he has taught dentists internationally his approach to biomimetic aesthetic and reconstructive techniques, and performed over a thousand smile transformations, each smile as unique as the person it is created for. When asked why he is so passionate about aesthetic dentistry he says:

“Aesthetic dentistry is really about self-transformation… becoming your very best self. The magic of transforming someone’s smile is not only the change that you see in their appearance; it is the change that occurs on the inside. It is the change in their love for themselves, in their self-confidence, and in their belief in what they can achieve. I have had clients in a career transition change their smile and proceed to get the job of their dreams. I have had single and divorced clients change their smile specifically to attract someone special and they end up meeting the love of their life. While I can’t promise these intangible benefits to every client when we perform a smile transformation, this kind of personal growth happens more often than not. So while it is wonderful to see a smile transformed, it is even more impactful to see a client’s life elevated.”

David believes in living life in balance. While he is passionate about dentistry, he puts equal importance on spending time with family and friends, recreation and self-discovery, and cultivating his creativity. His wife Tricia, daughter Ayla, son Layten, and golden retriever Yeti all feel blessed to call the Washington Park neighborhood home, and enjoy the vibrant lifestyle the park and local restaurants offer. David’s favorite quote is “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams… live the life you have imagined” by Henry David Thoreau, and he does his best to live his life that way. A creator at heart, David will always have at least one passion project he is involved with, whether that be writing and recording music, designing and developing interesting architectural projects, writing fiction, or exploring his limits on skis. Giving back to the community is important to the Bennett family, who are active supporters of Tennyson Center for Children and the Denver Rescue Mission.
