Sunrise was honored to be part of Gail's "Pay it Forward" Event for the second year in a row! To honor her very own cancer free anniversary, our friend Gail created this yearly event to bring smiles to children and their families who are battling disease. We made special Build-A-Bears for each child and their siblings whom are currently staying at Brent's Place and St. Jude's. We look forward to participating again next year and raising awareness for pediatric cancer and immunodeficiency disorders. Thank you Gail for all your hard work - you inspire us!
Dr. Crespi welcomed her sweet baby boy into the world on April 20th at 6:35pm. Bennett weighs 6 lbs 12 ounces and is measuring 18 inches long!
Wishing all our patients a wonderful Easter weekend. Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful Spring weather!
In preparation for Dr. Crespi's maternity leave, we have arranged office coverage with some AWESOME pediatric dentists from the Denver Metro area – and get this – they are brothers! Please read their bios below to learn more about Dr. D and Dr. Craig. They have both completed specialty in pediatric dentistry, just like Dr. Crespi, and have an office in Lone Tree. Dr. Crespi is hopeful she will be back seeing patients by mid-June. Thanks for being patient with us during this special time for Dr. Crespi!

Congratulations to our Toys for Tots contest winner! Rylan and family won a Broncos SuperBowl 50 signed football for participating in our donation event.
2016 has officially come to end and what a year it has been! We are thankful for our amazing team here at Sunrise as well as each and every one of our patients. Wishing you all a happy and successful 2017!
Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas! Melvin couldn't wait to open his gifts before going back to visit with Santa. We cannot wait for him to come back and hang out with us next year!
If your child's four favorite food groups this Christmas is candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup like Buddy the Elf make sure they're flossing once a day!
Since Melvin is in our office over the next couple weeks we decided he should get his very first dental visit! Melvin got x-rays, a cleaning, and an exam by Dr. Crespi. We have a positive report to go back to Santa with - Melvin has been brushing and flossing and has no cavities!
Melvin is going to be hanging out in the office over the next two weeks to help out our staff and report back to Santa. We have special prizes for the children that can spot Melvin while they're in the office!
Christmas came early at Sunrise! Thank you Rylan for the delicious chocolate chip cookies. Everybody loved them! Rylan also donated a toy for Toys for Tots which means he was entered to win a Super Bowl 50 football signed by DeMarcus Ware. You could be too if you bring a toy before December 15th!
