About Dr. Jesse Witkoff

Meet Dr. Jesse Witkoff

Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Jesse Witkoff, a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist who has been practicing since 1993, is the founder of A Wild Smile Pediatric Dentistry in Denver. He has been treating infants, children, and adults with Tethered Oral Tissues (TOTs) and performing releases (frenectomies) for the last 6 years.

Throughout his many years as a pediatric dentist, Dr. Jesse has seen the positive impact that tongue and lip tie release treatments (frenectomies) can have on babies, youth, adolescents, adults and their families.

Frenectomies are particularly personal for Dr. Jesse because he suffered from numerous issues related to his own tongue tie that went undiagnosed well into adulthood. When he finally had a frenectomy in 2017, Dr. Jesse was amazed that much of his chronic neck and back pain was greatly relieved, and his breathing and airway issues (including obstructive sleep apnea) improved. After years of trying to chase down the cause of these issues to no avail, he was shocked to see that such a simple, minimally invasive procedure could solve so many problems – not just trouble with breastfeeding and bottle-feeding. That’s when Dr. Jesse knew that he wanted to provide education about tongue ties and airway issues and dedicate his whole practice to this life-changing treatment.

In August 2018, Dr. Jesse Witkoff founded Colorado Tongue Tie so he could focus specifically on tongue and lip tie releases. Our sole purpose at Colorado Tongue Tie is to help babies, children and their families thrive. Specializing in frenectomies and focusing solely on this procedure allows Dr. Jesse to spend an extensive amount of time with each patient and to really understand and support your individual needs while providing the highest level of care.

With a network of like-minded pediatric medical professionals, Colorado Tongue Tie prides itself on partnering with patients and parents to educate, diagnose, treat, and support families with any challenges related to tongue ties. Call us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jesse!

Hear What Our Patients Are Saying

Ashley Elizabeth

"Wow! What an amazing place! We drove 2 hours to have our 5 month old daughter’s lip tie released because we heard such great things. It was all true! Dr. Jesse and his staff were extremely professional and beyond helpful. They are clearly experts in ties and made us feel very comfortable, answered all of our questions, and took their time. We came to find out our daughter also had a tongue tie. They also squeezed in our 2.5 year old who didn’t have an appointment because we wondered if she had the same problem, sure enough, she did. The procedure for our infant was quick, and I was able to nurse her right after. We’re going to follow up for our 2.5 year old. After care instructions were very clear, and Dr. Jesse even called that night to check on our baby. We couldn’t be more impressed!"

Brooklyn C.

"Dr. Jesse was nothing short of amazing! He was so kind, gentle and understanding. He answered every question and concern we had very thoroughly with great knowledge about lip and tongue ties. We traveled 4 hours each way to be under his care and it was worth it. Our family highly recommends Dr. Jesse and his very caring staff."

Jamie h.

"I am so happy we followed recommendations and use Dr Jesse and the amazing team. They were amazing using laser technology for my son’s numerous oral tie releases when he was just weeks old. The whole team does such a great job of making my son and our whole family welcome, and calm, and prepared. I wish they could be my dentist as an adult!"

Sarah h.

"Dr. Jesse and the staff are amazing! My sweet 6 week old just had her tongue and lip tie repaired and they were so great! I’m glad I found them on the tongue and liptie support network because they were totally worth the drive!"

Jodie R.

"Brought my 11 week old son in for a tongue and lip tie release we thought had been corrected by an ENT when he was just five days old, turns out it wasn’t! This place is amazing. I would recommend it to anyone. Kind and caring staff. Clean office. Amazing follow up and they were even able to get us in quickly since we are heading to day care in a couple weeks. The doctor even provided his cell phone number in case we need him over the Christmas holiday. Incredible! This place was wonderful!"

Andrew L.

"This place is outstanding for all the important reasons. The entire staff is 100% focused on you during your time in the office. All of them!! I’ve never experience that level of service. They really listen to where you are at, have amazing fancy equipment to check your kid out, and make sure parents and children are comfortable. And most importantly, they do a great job. I was in the room for my sons tongue/lip laser procedure and they were done in 2-3 minutes tops. He recovered without much pain at all and we’ve been sleeping well ever since. Can’t recommend them enough."
