Meet Our Orthodontist


“Every day I’m excited to go into the office to welcome and treat my patients."

"I can sincerely say I truly love what I do. This is because of the relationships I’m able to build with my patients, their families, and being able to offer them care that improves their lives. It’s a privilege to be a participant in a day that most of us remember forever: that great day when your braces are removed and you see your brand new radiant smile! I look forward to helping you achieve a beautiful, balanced and healthy smile.”

Education and Continuing Education

After a year at Brigham Young University and 2 years at Portland State University, Dr. Garlock received a Bachelor of Science and graduated summa cum laude. Our orthodontist then attended Oregon Health Sciences University Dental School where he graduated at the top of his class with honors.

While in Dental school, David Garlock spent much of his time serving in the community. He volunteered as a Boy Scout leader in the community,provided dental health education to children, teens and adults through various community organizations and schools, and provided dentistry to the underserved children of Portland.

After Dental School, Dr.Garlock’s prior achievements were recognized by world renowned Saint Louis University Department of Orthodontics, who allocated David a spot in their residency program where he received an additional two and a half years of specialized post-graduate training in orthodontics earning a master’s degree in dentistry in the process. It was here that our orthodontic specialist learned to combine the art and science of creating beautiful, balanced and healthy smiles using the latest technologies and advanced treatments allowing him, as he feels, to be Aurora Colorado’s best orthodontist.

Dr. Garlock has a firm commitment to continuing his education, ensuring that he is giving the best possible care to his patients. In fact, Dr. Garlock serves on the Advisory Board for the prestigious Seattle Study Club chapter here in Denver. This role allows him to serve, instruct and learn with the best Dentist and Dental specialist in our area. He also plays a leadership role in another local study club where he has given lectures and instruction on Invisalign and other orthodontic treatments.

Dr Garlock is also a member of multiple national Orthodontic Study Clubs where he is able to collaborate and learn from the top orthodontist in the world.



Outside The Office

“I’ve been blessed with 4 beautiful children and an amazing wife.  They are my top priority and my motivation to be the best that I can be. I’m your classic washed up athlete.  I love playing basketball, tennis, golf, skiing, mountain biking and just about anything else where I can be competitive and physically active.  My most prized position and priority is my family, and I feel that building relationships with them, along with those around us, helps our community grow and strengthen and become a richer environment for all.”
