Kimberly L Mitchell, Ouray

Great, reliable and caring dental care. My family has been seeing Dr. Thomas since he came to town. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Carol M., Ridgway

I can actually say I now like going to the dentist! It is the friendliest group of people, and it’ is small enough that they know you and you get to know them on a personal basis.....I can’t say enough good things about them all. Of course it goes without saying. That they are experts in their field also.

Alyssa A, Ridgway

Absolutely incredible experience here. Hands down the best service I’ve ever received at a dental or medical office. Staff is the most kind, caring, patient, & compassionate group of healthcare professionals. I had the pleasure to work with both doc’s in my first two trips and they were awesome. They really took time to explain everything thoroughly and make sure I was comfortable during each procedure. If I could give this place 100 stars I would. Going to the dentist can be a great experience if you give these guys a shot! They truly care and make you feel like family!

Susan, Ridgway

Dr. Thomas and his team are professional, friendly and competent. I have received dental care at Ridgway Family Dentistry for years and I have always been happy with the care and service. Everyone in the practice cares about you and your dental health.

Susan L. , Ridgway

I have being going to Dr. Thomas since he first established his practice in Ridgway. Dr. Thomas is always friendly, professional and competent. I always feel that I am in good hands with both Dr. Thomas and his staff and appreciate that I can receive high quality care close to home. Ridgway Family Dentistry is a wonderful practice within our community

Very Happy

Jamie N, Ridgway

Dr. Thomas is the best! He pulled my daughter's tooth out yesterday. She was a little scared, but she said it was so painless and fast she didn't even know he had pulled it out!


I've been having my dental work performed at Ridgway Family Dentistry for many years. First, if I hadn't been wholly satisfied with the services provided, I would be a loyal patient. Second, the friendly atmosphere, the wonderful, caring people there are just the most appreciated bonus. Michael, Joan, Gerry and all are just the absolute best. I'll never go anywhere else for my dental care. Thank you all so much for doing what you do in the first-class way you do it.

Tamora T, Ridgway

When no other Dentist would see me, because I had an emergency and no personal dentist Ridgway Family Dentistry made an appointment. I am exceedingly satisfied with my care. I am seen and can make appointments in a timely manner. Everyone is friendly and caring; not in a hurry to get rid of me for the next appointment. The level of expertise with each dentist excellent. No procedure is done unless needed. People go to Montrose for dental care. I suggest Montrose folk come to Ridgway Family Dentistry for excellent care.

Brook Reynolds, Placerville co

Wonderful team !! Can't wait to start bringing the kiddos. Very friendly and timely.

Sheri Worth, Telluride

I've been coming ro Ridgway Family Dentistry for many years. Dr. Thomas is professional, thorough, friendly, gentle and a wonderful dentist all the way around. His staff is amazing, and I always feel I'm getting the best care possible. I have a big healthy smile courtesy of Ridgway Family Dentistry, and you can too!

John Strantz, Montrose

Have had the best care with Dr. Thomas and hygienist Lynnsay. They truly care about their patients.

Bruce, Ridgway

Have been going to Dr. Thomas for about 10 years and will continue to do so. Dr. Thomas has always met my needs in a very compassionate and competent manner. Dr Thomas' office as always provided that "family" doctor/dentist feel, which for me is important. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Thomas.

Daniel H., Silverton

Dr. Thomas and his people are the best. Everyone there is very kind and helpful. Geri and Jacqueline are a great team while i'm in the chair getting cleaned. Lynsey adds a young positive energy. You are all positive. Thank You all for your great work and painless dentistry.

Gayle S., Montrose, CO

The staff and Dr. Thomas are SO wonderful. It is a pleasure to be a patient and they always are so personal and caring. Would highly recommend them to everyone.

Ronnie P, Montrose

Terrible fear of dentists but truly appreciate everyone of these guys, they care...... I'm guessing its been 10 years now and I'm so comfortable here that my whole family are now patients, even my three year old. I can highly recommend them.

Logan D, Bozeman, MT and Ridgway

Dr. Thomas is absolutely a world class dentist. I went to him to get my wisdom teeth pulled and it was one of the easiest processes ever. I was in and out in no time, had hardly any pain afterwards, and didn't even have to take a pain killer. I was even able to eat normal foods the next day! he and his staff are very friendly, it's obvious they truly care about your well-being. This is why I go to him for all my cleanings as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Thomas to anyone in the Ridgway/Ouray/Montrose area as the best dentist in this region.

Susan b, Just moved to ridgway 😄

Just had the BEST cleaning here with Lindsey the hygienist... These guys are wonderful , thorough, gentle , warm and professional. I HIGHLY recommend making the ridgway family dentistry your new place for dental care.

Jackie, Silverton

I have always said that I would rather give birth then go to the dentist but that changed many years ago when I switched to Ridgway Family Dentistry. I no longer dread my dentist appointments, I feel as if I am a member of their family. I am comfortable and have never felt pressured by anyone to have certain work done. I have many friends who have complained that their dentists make them uncomfortable with any decisions they make concerning treatment. At Ridgway Family Dentistry they will give you your options but leave the decisions up to you. Wonderful people!!

Jamie, Ridgway

The team at Ridgway Family Dentistry are amazing! Geri gives the best teeth cleaning I have ever had and both Dr. Thomas and Dr. Lurye are fantastic. As much as my family and I don't enjoy going to the dentist, we know it is good for us, and these guys are the best! Thank you!

Leah T, Las Vegas

I found all of the staff and the Drs. to be both professional and personable. Although I have relocated, they are still very helpful. As recently as a month ago, my dentist emailed a digital x-ray to Dr. Lurye for a second opinion, and he was happy to give my second opinion on a treatment plan. Thank you all.

Esther C., Ridgway

I have been a patient of Dr. Lurye's for many years, following him from Winter Park to Ridgway. His gentle touch, combined with extreme dental care, make me committed to be his patient for the duration! His personality- serious in work and yet light in periods of my anxiety- helps me feel assured that I am getting the best care possible. In addition, the practice is staffed with knowledegable, gentle, and caring hygienists and assistants who help see me as a person and not just a set of 32 almost pearly-whites. I appreciate Dr. Lurye, his team, and his commitment to my all-over health!
