Rosie D Says

I went to Bright Now on 120th & Washington and was very happy with the work done by my Dentist. He took his time and the Dental assistants were pretty nice too. Thornton, Northglenn, Brighton patients, this is the BEST Dentist I've seen in 10 Years!

I had a double crown and like anyone the dentist is not my favorite place. With that been said Jack Emmons was great. My consultation was excellent and pointed me in the right direction. I am 100% satisfied with the work performed. His staff was great and professional. I have found my dentist for all my future work and would recommend this office to anyone.

Linda M Says

Wow, what can I say, I never thought I would say I actually enjoyed going to the dentist. The staff Dr. Emmons, Diane and Lauren, are wonderful and a joy to do business with. They make the experience painless and enjoyable. I would not change a thing in this office - they make you feel so welcome and they care about you as a person. Thanks so much for being the best dentist office I have ever been to!

Vicki P Says

I cannot say enough GOOD about my first experience at this office!!!! For starters, Diane the office manager, was amazing, patient and helpful! She was very reassuring, and has great customer service attitude!! The tech, Marcus, was very good at explaining what steps were next, made me laugh and feel comfortable, and I was sad to hear that that day was his last day. But hope he does well in his new position! Now for Dr Jack Emmons...he was FANTASTIC!! Very compassionate, educational, and just overall amazing at his work!! I went home very confident that the dental work was perfect and perfectly done! I can say that I look forward to my next appointment!!! Thank you, Dr. Emmons!! I loved that the equipment and atmosphere of the office was up to date, and very comfortable. I have to confess I was uncomfortable with the 'shopping center' exterior until I got inside and was pleasantly surprised !!!

Elva L Says

I continue to be extremely impressed with the amazing staff here! I love love love Lauren and her atitude and how comfortable she makes me! Really helps me relax as does Dr. Emmons who is great as well! The staff works so well together and remembers you which really makes you feel welcome and confortable its a fun friendly atmosphere! There is however one person there who seems to not belong and doesnt help with this feeling, Ashley! My first visit in it was painfully obvious it was her first day! Which I tried to over look figuring everyone starts somewhere cut the girl a break. But over my several visits she continues to make me feel less comfortable. I would guess that to be employeed here you must have some kind of training, there is questions I continue to hear her ask that even I have gotten to a point of being able to answer!!! Yes I have heard the answers that many times in my own visits!!! And I overheard the way she was speaking to a kid, OMG, I wanted to scream at her!! Which led me to a conversation with Lauren of when I bring my kids in I need to make sure Lauren is the one doing their exrays!! Because I do not trust Ashley near them!! And my children would not tolerate being spoken down to like babies which is what Ashley was doing to this kid I believe the mom said was 7! There is some things you just dont do! There was another new gentleman in my last visit I believe his name started with a M I do not recall his name, but he fit in, and obviously had a clue as to what he was doing! He belongs with this group, Ashley however does not!

Elva L Says

I had a double root canal and crown done with Dr. Emmons with help from Lauren and it was by far the best root canal I have ever had done!!! I had no pain at all! When I did start to feel again during my procedure the Dr noticed and immediatly numbed me some more! And Lauren was wonderful as always in helping comfort me. I've had horrible experieces in the past with dentists but I absolutly love Dr Emmons and Lauren!!! They take great care of me and make sure im comfortable and all is good! I also greatly appreciate Elle who remembers me when I walk in and helped me find a way to afford the treatment I needed! Love these 3!!!

Erick A Says

The entire staff at Brightnow Dental of Thornton' are very courteous, as well as professional! Dr. Emmons is very passionate when it comes to helping patients. He makes the entire process of getting dental work done less stressful. When it comes to assistance none do it better than Lauren and Diane. Thanks a lot guys!!!!!!

Stephanie R Says

I cannot say enough about this office my family LOVES it! The staff is AMAZING from the front desk gal Elle to the office manager Diane to Dr. Jack Emmons and to our favorite dental assistant Lauren! They treat our family with respect and friendly smiles! They are able to calm our fears and just have been WONDERFUL!!!!! We will NEVER leave this office as long as this team is here! THANK YOU to the most wonderful dental team in the world we couldn't be more pleased thanks to our extended family at the Bright Now Dental in Thornton, CO!

Mike M Says

As a family we had a dentist for years that we trusted and felt comfortable with them

Robert A Says

I have found my Dentist!! Dr. Emmons and assistant Lauren were great. They took time to not only explain necessary treatment but also took time to ensure I was comfortable and not in any pain. I am very pleased with all the work Dr. Emmons has performed and I am actually eager to continue treatment for a better/healthier smile. Thanks to Dr. Emmons, Lauren and the entire staff.

Michelle B Says

The people at this office are so friendly and laid back. It doesn't feel so clinical there. Everyone has a good sense of humor and their whole demeanor makes it actually fun to visit the dentist. They even play cool music to listen to rather than the standard "elevator music." Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience. Never thought I'd say that about going to the dentist!

Laura K Says

Diane, the office manager, was helpful, patient & knowledgeable in getting my treatment plan & price worked up so that I understood what work was being done, why and how much. Dr. Emmons was very kind & professional. It was the first time I walked out of the dentist without crying. The doctor & his assistant Cyrstal were very comforting to me. I was diagnosed with PTSD in 1990. Dental work is one of the hardest things for me. Dr. Emmon, Diane, & Crystal were all very helpful to me so that I was able to have my dental work done without feeling traumatized. No other dentist has ever said, "You are doing great. You did a fantastic job. You did better than most of my other patients." The Dentist & his assistant repeated this many times. It was what I needed to hear to be able to take the dental work and not cry or try to run out of the office. I went in the next day without an appointment to discuss my pain med making me sick. They were very nice about me being a walk-in. I have much more dental work to do and because of how GREAT this dentist office is I will not have to be so scared and nervouse.

jon b Says

Dr. Emmons did a great job. They found time to get me almost immediately to treat me for 2 teeth that had to come out. I was experiencing pain and had issues chewing. Where 2 other doctors had already said they were Not comfortable doing it Dr. Emmons took charge. Both teeth came out fairly easy and you could tell the whole time that the doctor was completely comfortable with the procedure. I will return and plan on having all mywork now handled by Brightnow in Thornton.

Arthur C Says

Mr Carrillo does not have internet access so he asked the staff to write his comment: "Khrystal is an excellent assistant. He has had other dentures in the past and has always had to come in for adjustments or several impressions. Khrystal was great with the impressions and he has only had to come in for two adjustments, as apposed to several adjustments with previous Dentists and dentures." "The staff are very professional and courteous and he would recommend this office and Dr. to anyone he knows."

Robert V Says

While entering the clinicl at the Thornton office I noticed how clean and inviting it felt. I was quicly taken back to have my xrays taken. Khrystal was so gentle when preforming xrays. She made me feel at ease and comfortable. The technology this office offers is awesome. Dr. Emmons was very professional and informative. He made me feel like he really cared about my oral health car. I immediatly came back the next day for treatment. Lauren helped me feel comfortable when getting my fills and cleaning done. She was great. I would recommend anyone to this office.

Judy T Says

All the people at this office have been really wonderful! They are responsive to my needs, taking time to explain, teach and encourage. I find this especially refreshing because I am likely considered a difficult dental patient. Everything about my visits has been positive and designed for my comfort, satisfaction, meeting personal dental health goals and ease. Many thanks to all with whom I have had the pleasure of knowing so far at Bright Now in Thornton!

Davina Y Says

Your employees at this office are top of the line , they made us feel as if we were the first appointment of the day not the very last one they stayed open for! That was very impressive and we think you should know how special and rare this kind of customer service is these days! Thank you Diane Smith , Jack Emmonds DDS, and Dental Assistant (name unknown) Mr. & Mrs. Brian R. Y.

Heather B Says

Every member of the staff was positive, reassuring, and kind. Everyone was very thorough in their explanation of what they would be doing to me. The dentist took time to answer all my questions. The x-ray technician had such a wonderful, positive attitude and did her job so well. The facility was extremely clean too. This place completely exceeded my expectations. I will definitely recommend Bright Now! of Thornton to all of my friends! ~Heather

Claudio J Says

I would like to let you know the staff at this office is the best. From the time I first went in to the time I just got out they treat you like a family. They tell you over and over the Dr was so helpful in keeping me clam and the dental assistants where the best at making sure I was doing ok. Check out was easy and fast and she took me through everything before I left. For now thank you to all the staff in Thornton you made me smile again.

Ed B Says

If you need to have dental work done or just xrays and a cleaning, the staff of BriteNow! Dental are absolutely the best group of professionals I have ever worked with. Dr. Emmons took care of my dental issues with great care and concern for me as his patient. His knowledge of pain control and pain management was essiential for my issues. The results of his work made me smile with confidence once again.
