What Sets Us Apart

Since 1960, that is how long our practice has been creating great smiles in the Denver area. Over 20,000 incredible smiles have been created in our office, and we are now even seeing third generation patients of the practice! We have been around a long time, but our approach to orthodontic care and our offices are thoroughly modern. Total Orthodontics is known for our honest, conservative approach to orthodontic treatment. Only a small percentage of our patients undergo two phases of orthodontic treatment, as the research supports, and very few have permanent teeth removed.

  • Dr. Theroux and Dr. Barefoot are the ONLY Board-certified Orthodontists in Lone Tree. Fewer than 20% of all orthodontists practicing in Arapahoe and Douglas Counties are Board-certified.  Board Certification matters!
  • We are the only area orthodontic practice to offer TWO 5280 Magazine Top Orthodontists in one office and our doctors and staff are FUN!  We are also the only office with two full-time Board-Certified doctors.
  • Hundreds of dental and medical professionals have chosen Total Orthodontics, including more than 20 pediatricians.
  • Our practice was featured in The Progressive Orthodontist Business Journal as an exceptional practice–one of four for the year nationally.
  • We have been selected as “Best of the Best” by CCN Readers 9 times!
  • We offer traditional braces, braces behind the teeth (lingual braces), and Invisalign®.
  • Orthodontists from across the country continually visit TO to consult with us on how to improve their own skills.
  • Dr. Theroux is an inventor, lecturer, and published author.
  • We give back to the community!   We have given away over 100 sets of free braces to deserving children through our organization that is guided by a youth board and includes community leaders.   “I am honored that in my 10 years of involvement, I have seen approximately 100 children receive a free smile and a lot of love–and the confidence that comes with that!” Dr. Nick Kyriazi  See our Community Giving Page for more on the TO Project.
  • We are conservative and never recommend unnecessary treatment. Only 6% of our patients undergo two phases of braces, as the research suggests.
