At Vinna Norris Family Dentistry we strive to provide excellent, personalized dental care in a welcoming, compassionate environment. We are dedicated to helping you achieve your best dental health through conservative, preventive care to promote function, wellness and comfort.

About Our Office

We moved to our current office in 2017 which is located immediately north of Poudre Valley Hospital. Our location offers four treatment rooms in a comfortable setting equipped with technology including electronic health records, digital radiography, and intraoral cameras. These tools allow us to share information with our patients related to their needs in real-time with an excellent visual display while minimizing radiation exposure.

Dr. Norris enjoys providing dentistry for the whole family and has chosen to focus on prevention, education, restorative procedures, and periodontal health. We encourage patients to bring earbuds or headphones for listening to music, an audiobook, or a podcast using their phone or mobile device during dental treatment. This can significantly enhance your dental appointment and create a more positive experience as we are aware that dental noises can be unpleasant and having something else to focus on can be a helpful distraction. For the patient who struggles with significant dental anxiety we offer nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas. For more complex care involving dental specialties, Dr. Norris has a close network of excellent colleagues she refers to in Northern Colorado for surgical, endodontic, advanced periodontal, prosthodontic, and orthodontic care.

Our consultations are provided free of charge and often scheduled as a separate appointment in the case of more complex treatment or 2nd opinions. We provide cost estimates prior to appointments to help you plan financially. While we do not participate as a member dentist office for insurance plans with the exception of Delta Dental Premier, we are happy to coordinate your insurance benefits and submit claims on your behalf.

At Vinna Norris Family Dentistry your safety comes first and our staff follows strict infection control standards for disinfection and sterilization as established by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Our staff is also trained in Basic Life Support for health providers.
