Small Business Spotlight: Hope Pediatric Dentistry

Small Business Spotlight: Hope Pediatric Dentistry


New businesses have been opening in Downtown Westminster, including some professional offices. Recently we spoke with Dr. Lisa Phillips, board certified pediatric dentist and owner of Hope Pediatric Dentistry at 5724 W. 89th Avenue to find out why she chose Downtown Westminster for her practice – and the very special reason behind its name.

How did you choose Downtown Westminster for Hope Pediatric Dentistry?

After I finished my residency in Pediatric Dentistry at Children’s Hospital Colorado, I moved just down the street from here (near 92nd and Lamar). I immediately fell in love with Westminster and this part of town; I even used to shop at the Westminster Mall and the JCPenney that’s adjacent to my business. I believe in the vision that the City has for Downtown Westminster. The location is promising with local vendors coming on board and I can see a lively community forming as it grows. I was the first storefront in the new Downtown and I am so excited to be part of its history!

It sounds like your practice is already doing well – you were recently nominated for an award?

I was voted one of the top pediatric dentists in Colorado by 5280 Magazine! The 5280 Top Dentist list is created using peer evaluations. Top dentists in the field ask other dentists and specialists a question: “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer him or her to?” I am honored to be regarded so highly by my peers, but mostly I just absolutely love serving my patients and their families.

Tell us about the special meaning behind the name of your practice.

In 2014, my husband contracted a virus that attacked his heart and sent him into congestive heart failure. Doctors told me they didn’t know how long he had to live, as his organs were going into failure. I was also nine months pregnant at the time, with our second child. My husband was in the hospital for three weeks and when he came home, he said the one thing that kept him alive was seeing me walk in every day at 5 a.m. with a smile on my face. That inspired him to keep hope.

Seven days later our daughter was born and we named her Isla Hope. That entire experience made me realize how much I wanted to provide hope for families and the kids I serve. My goal is to help children feel confident, to smile, and to inspire hope to those around them.
