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!
Dr. Hannah graduated from the University of Southern California in 2018 and practiced general dentistry in the Navy for 4 years. Her interest in tongue/lip ties began after a rocky journey with her first baby. After overcoming a turbulent postpartum period and successfully breastfeeding her 2 babies for a combined 2 years, she became inspired to help other parents and babies on their personal journeys by completing several courses and certifications as a postpartum doula, lactation counselor, and in airway and pediatric dentistry. Combined with her hobbies of yoga and breathwork, she resonated with the practice and has been increasingly fascinated by the connection between the mouth and rest of the body. When she’s not helping babies grow and thrive, she loves spending time with her own babies who are now 1 and 3, taking them on outdoor adventures in a converted camper van with her husband, rollerskating, and tending to her tropical plant collection.

He has also participated in various volunteer efforts over the years where he’s donated his time and services to provide free dental checkups and treatment to children in need. He thoroughly enjoys giving back to the community and it is something he hopes to be able to continue doing in the future.

He knows how important it is to find a provider you can trust and he is fully dedicated to providing you with the highest level of care and service you’ve come to expect at our practice. “I love to help patients improve their oral and systemic health so that they can live happier, healthier and more fulfilled lives.” Dr. Chad also loves being a pioneer in the treatment of tongue ties continuing to learn and be a leader in the field.
When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Chad enjoys working on a passion project he started called the Miracle Molar. Dr. Chad created the Miracle Molar as a way to spread positivity and inspire everyone to “Brush, Floss, and Smile More!”
