Who We Are

Dr. Adler and Dr. Bousaba

We are a general dentist office. Our beginnings started 42 years ago with my previous partner Dr. Michael Plous who retired in 2016. I entered the practice 15 years ago. I now own the practice, and have 2 doctors (myself and Dr. Joe Bousaba, and 12 team members. We pride ourselves in building strong relationships with our patients.

At Northstar Dental, we have a high standard of excellence in personalized dental care. To achieve your optimal dental health, we use comprehensive treatment planning, preventive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Our goal is to make you, and your family feel welcome and comfortable while providing superior results for all of your dental needs.

As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, how your bite comes together (occlusion), performing oral cancer exams, and taking digital x-rays when necessary. We also spend time with you to thoroughly educate you on your individual oral healthcare plan to prevent dental disease.  Our family of clients comes from all around the surrounding communities, Wheat Ridge, Golden, Evergreen, Arvada.  Come see why, call today.
