Our Team

Dr. Jeffrey Kaes DDSDr. Jeffrey Kaes, DDS

Dr. Kaes grew up in Greeley, Colorado and has a B.A. in Biology from Colorado College. He graduated from the University of Colorado School of Dentistry in 1982 and began practicing in Aurora. Dr. Kaes moved his practice to South Denver in 1996 and is proud to be serving 3 generations of patients in his nearly 3 decades of practice.

Dr. Kaes practices General Dentistry with an emphasis on comprehensive and esthetic dentistry. Our office takes pride in a co-diagnosis strategy with our patients. One of his favorite questions is, “What can I do for you?” Dr. Kaes strives to treat his emergency patients’ needs immediately, but loves to invest 90 minutes in your first visit for diagnosis, formulating a comprehensive treatment plan which allows a very efficient use of your time and resources.

Dr. Kaes’ other favorite question is, “What do you do for fun?” He enjoys discussing life, the universe, and everything with his patients. He feels this enhances his understanding of his patient’s needs, allowing him to better meet their expectations.

We operate a small dental practice. After your first visit you will recognize everyone in the office. All of Dr. Kaes’ employees are “volunteers.” Ava, Diane, and Colleen called Dr. Kaes when they heard of openings in his office, before the positions were offered publicly. They have happily practiced with Dr. Kaes for years.

Dental Assistant, EDDA
Colleen first worked with Dr. Kaes in 1982. She returned to practice with Dr. Kaes as his chairside assistant in the 1990’s having worked in a number of “big” offices. Returning to work with Dr. Kaes, allowed Colleen to concentrate on providing great care to our patients rather than the daily “production goals” of the larger practices. She enjoys hunting, skiing, softball, tennis and the Stock Show and is our resident “car chick.” A Hinkley High School graduate, Colleen’s Aurora roots run deep.
