Dr. David Thurman has been serving the Denver metropolitan area for over a decade. He is passionate about digital dentistry and is committed to providing honest, personalized care to every patient.

Always a creator at heart, Dr. Thurman found the perfect balance of medicine and design when he founded Dental Elements in 2009 – he practices with a discerning eye for detail and ambition for patient satisfaction.

Dr. Thurman was born and raised in beautiful rural Montana. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 2007 and has dedicated his professional life to providing his patients with outstanding dental care.

Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with friends, exploring the Rocky Mountains, road biking, traveling, playing pickleball and rooting for local sports teams. He is also passionate about art and design. Some of his favorite artists include: Tamina Amadyar, Markus AmmGeorg Baselitz, Huma Bhabha, Thomas DevauxSam Gilliam, Antony GormleyThomas Houseago and Stephen De Staebler

I'm very impressed with Dental Elements. Dr. Thurman gives you a wonderful big picture perspective on your mouth, outlining all problems, then gives a detailed picture of how to fix everything, with various options and timelines. The work he and his staff did was superb -- everything is done in house, so no temporary caps or waiting around for outside processing. My mouth wishes I had found Dental Elements years ago!
