We believe a healthy smile is the sign of a healthy person.
WELCOME TO THE COLONIES DENTAL CENTER
We are dedicated to providing top notch oral healthcare in a warm and friendly environment.
Part of our commitment to serving our patients includes providing information that helps them to make more informed decisions about their oral health needs. This website is a resource we hope you’ll find both useful and interesting. We genuinely hope this site is helpful to you in learning more about our practice, dental conditions and treatments, dental recommendations, and more. Please browse through our website and be sure to give us a call if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
The American Dental Association recommends that you see your dentist every six months. Doing so will give you the best chance of preventing serious dental diseases. At your regularly scheduled examination, your teeth will be cleaned by a professional who will remove all of the built-up plaque and calculus that your own toothbrush can’t reach.
If you are self-conscious due to missing teeth, wear dentures that are uncomfortable, or don’t want to have good tooth structure removed to make a bridge, we offer implant dentistry services that may be able to correct these problems and offer you a smile you can be proud to show off. Generally, if you have lost teeth you are a candidate for dental implants.
Our friendly dental team truly understand how to connect with children, putting both you and your child at ease. We welcome parents to schedule their children for the first dental visit as soon as the child gets their first tooth. Dental visits during the first three or so years of your child’s life are designed to familiarize them with the office and to create positive dental experiences.
Dentures (more commonly known as false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and which are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of your mouth. Conventional dentures are removable, however there are many different denture designs, some which rely on resting on or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.
Periodontal Treatment (Gum Disease)
Periodontal disease is a serious condition that destroys the supporting structures of your teeth including the gums and bone. It can start with simple swollen and/or bleeding gums and will progress over time to affect your overall health. Scientists have determined a connection exisits between periodontal disease and diabetes, respiratory disease, stroke and heart disease.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that completely covers the visible portion of a natural tooth above the gum line. Their purpose is to restore the natural tooth’s shape and size, strength, and to improve its appearance.
Office Policies & Payments

We work very hard to keep our fees reasonable so that people can afford the dentistry they need. We also have several payment options that we can work with. Payment is generally due at the time the service is provided, just like a restaurant, unless other arrangements have been made ahead of time.
We also offer CareCredit with 0% interest for up to 6 months. Please visit the CareCredit link below to apply today!
We can take any insurance that allows you to choose your dentist. Most plans allow you to see a dentist of your choice. If yours does not, ask your insurance agent or employer for a plan that does. Currently we are in network with Delta Dental, Cigna and Guardian. However, most of our patients have other insurance plans and we are able to work with them just fine!
One of the common myths out there is that you’ll save money going to an “in-network” dentist. Dental insurance companies say this because they have to pay those dentists less. By being out of network, we have more flexibility when planing procedures and can often times save you money in the long run.
New Patient Forms
If you are a new patient to our office, the below link contains our new patient bundle with forms that will need to be filled out when you arrive at our office.
Printing them, filling them out and bringing them with you will allow us to attend to your medical needs more quickly than completing them on your arrival. Thank you and please call our office if you have any questions.
I have never been so relaxed and so at ease in a dentist’s office! Dr.Boyd and his staff are incredible; Dr. Boyd is so great about explaining everything he is doing step by step and if you are uncomfortable or have questions, he will definitely stop and answer any questions or clarify anything for you! They are so caring and so much fun! They are so worth the trip to Columbia! I live in Jefferson City!
These guys are the best. Some of the friendliest people and professionals I have ever run across. The front desk beats every other medical office I have ever been in. Excellent staff. Excellent customer service. The medical staff are the same. Friendly, knowledgeable, gentle. Dr Boyd is incredibly nice, approachable, knowledgeable. You never feel rushed. He always takes the time to answer your questions and explain what he’s doing. His patients take part in their own care because they understand what’s happening and what’s going to happen.

“My experiences at The Colonies Dental Center have been excellent. The staff is so kind and welcoming. The dental assistants are awesome! Dr. Boyd is committed to his patients. He took his time with me and made me feel completely comfortable while working on my fillings. He was excellent with my husband and 2 year old daughter too! I would recommend him to everyone!”

“Professional service with a friendly atmosphere is unbeatable. You are greeted and taken in at the desk by pleasant, capable staff; you spend very little time in the waiting room; technicians are quite competent and friendly – and much as I regret, have to confess that Dr. Boyd is too. They never leave me any reason to gripe & complain, and that’s not how a dental clinic should be!“
