Dr. Ewelina Ciula, DDS

Dentist and Owner

"My guiding principle in any care I give is to treat you as though you are a member of my family- to provide you with only what is in your best interest just as I would for my mother, father, sister, or brother.   Above all else, my foremost concern is for you, the patient- your comfort, safety, and wellbeing take the utmost precedence.  Having the opportunity to serve you year after year with dedication is why I love my profession- and I hope that love is perceptible in every aspect of your experience.  The highest quality of care you’ll receive is maintained through immersion in the latest techniques, education, and technology dentistry has to offer.  I look forward to meeting you.”

Dr. Ewelina Ciula earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the Indiana University School of Dentistry, where she was on the Dean’s List and served in national leadership roles with the Student Professionalism and Ethics Association.  After dental school, she proudly and honorably served as a dental officer in the United States military for four years at Fort Campbell, KY. She is a cum laude graduate of Loyola University Chicago, with a degree in Biology.

Dr. Ciula is trained in many aspects of dentistry including placing long-lasting, tooth-colored, and esthetic restorations, providing root canal therapy to alleviate pain and infection, performing oral surgery, including removal of wisdom teeth, the management of tempro-mandibular disorders, and the restoration of implants among many others.  She is Invisalign certified to help patients achieve a straighter, more esthetic, and healthy smile.  Dr. Ciula takes many hours of continuing education to better serve her patients.

She believes that her skills in dentistry can make a difference in someone’s life.   In addition to mission trips to Vietnam and Guatemala, Dr. Ciula volunteered at an outreach clinic in Indianapolis.  She is also actively involved in organizations such as the American Dental Association, Colorado Dental Association, Metro Denver Dental Society and the American Academy of General Dentistry.  She has been selected for fellowship in the American College of Dentists, which is a distinct honor granted to only about 3.5% of dentists.     

In her spare time, she enjoys cooking traditional foods for family and friends and exploring the colorful state of Colorado by staying active through skiing, hiking, and cycling.
