Wyoming’s Top Rated Local® Businesses: 2020

While there’s a lot of uncertainty in the world right now, we didn’t want to let that stop us from celebrating the amazing small businesses of Wyoming!

Best known for being the first state in the nation to guarantee women the right to vote, Wyoming is a wonderful state to live in and visit. Home to two world-famous national parks, Yellowstone and Grand Teton, as well as Matthew Fox, Dick Cheney and Scott Avett, the Equality State is also home to a number of truly incredible local businesses — from acupuncturists to window cleaners — that work to serve their communities and make the world a better place.

Top Rated Local® is here to recognize the many local businesses that work to make Wyoming such a phenomenal place to live and visit. There are so many amazing businesses that serve the people of Wyoming, but only the best of the best have made it on our list of Top Rated Local award winners for 2020. Today, we’re ecstatic to announce our 2020 award winners in Wyoming.

To calculate our 2020 winners, we’ve looked at each business’ Rating Score™, which is determined by the total number of verified review sites the business is listed on, the total number of ratings/reviews the business has on those review sites and the business’ average overall star rating. The more review sites a business is listed on, the more reviews or ratings a business has and the higher the average star rating, the higher the Rating Score will be, with the highest being 100.00.

There are a large number of businesses that work hard to serve the people of Wyoming and provide them with everything they need to thrive, and this year, we’ve identified 299 total businesses that have made the cut. These one-of-a-kind, local businesses have clearly made an impact on the customers and clients they serve each and every day, as evidenced by their impressive average Rating Score of 95.20 and average star rating of 4.86. For comparison, businesses across Top Rated Local average a 68.87 Rating Score and a 4.20 star rating. These businesses are truly the best of the best.

There are so many stand-out businesses in Wyoming that deserve to be recognized for their success, but we’re especially excited to give a shoutout to the number one award-winner in Wyoming for 2020 — Birch Family Dental. With a dedication to providing the very best care using modern, cutting-edge technology, Birch Family Dental has become Green River’s premier source for family dental care. Birch Family Dental has received 330 reviews across 5 verified reviews sites with an average star rating of 5.00, which has earned it a phenomenal Rating Score of 100.00 and the bragging rights of being the number one Top Rated Local business in all of Wyoming for 2020.

Congratulations to all of our award winners in Wyoming for 2020. We commend you for the outstanding service and support you provide for your community day in and day out.

Wyoming’s Top Rated Local® Photographers Award Winner: Adam J. Howard Photography

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Adam J. Howard Photography is an award winner for photographers in 2019.

If you are looking for a remarkable photographer in Wyoming, look no further than this award-winning company!

Adam J. Howard Photography has received many overwhelmingly positive reviews across three different verified sites with an average rating of 4.94 stars, earning them an impressive Rating Score™ of 96.40 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking as one of the top five photographers in Wyoming!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Adam was amazing! He was great to work with and took amazing photos. He is creative and really listened to what we wanted as a couple. I’m so happy I chose him to do the photography for our wedding.” – M.L.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Adam J. Howard Photography is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Photographer

We were excited to learn all about Adam J. Howard Photography and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with Adam himself.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Adam J. Howard Photography stand apart from its competitors. Adam told us about the personal attention he gives to his clients and the way he incorporates the natural beauty of Wyoming into his photography. He said:

“I try and give everybody more of a personalized experience and work around what my clients want. You can’t always do everything that everybody wants, but you can have a commitment to try to make sure it happens. I try to always be flexible. I work with my clients to make images they enjoy. I also try to highlight the landscape out here. A lot of people come out to this corner of Wyoming because there’s a lot of cool things to see out here. There’s mountains, rivers, trees, a lot of greenery, old rustic buildings, it’s just a really cool area, so I want to capture those things and incorporate them into my portrait work.”

Building Success By Making Personal Connections

Adam J. Howard Photography has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Adam how they have managed to grow their business and get such great reviews. He told us about the connections he forms with his clients, saying:

“Honestly, I really try and focus more on people than on the business side of photography. A big part of my approach to photography is trying to connect with people as individuals. I feel like, once you make that connection with somebody, they open up a little more and have a better experience. Over the years, that’s one area I’ve tried to grow in. I’ve taken hundreds of photos, done hundreds of sessions, but I never want to lose sight of the fact that these are real people who might be celebrating something, or they might have hurts or losses, and honestly, all of those people are just really kind, and they’ve left some nice reviews.”

Adam also knows the benefit of online marketing and has managed to organically improve his rankings from being on the 14th page of Google to the first.

Adam also told us about the importance of networking and getting client referrals. He said:

“I’ve built a web presence by posting on Facebook. I build connections and get my clients to tag themselves in photos on Facebook, and that goes a long way for exposure. My main clientele is people from out of town. A lot of people travel here for vacation and end up having family or friends that come out here a few years later, so referrals are huge. Taking those little extra steps to get exposure over time really helps.”

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Adam J. Howard Photography has spread the word about who he is and what he does by staying active in his community.

“This business allows me to be in the community and support my family. I’m involved in the Cornerstone Church. One of the ministries I participate in is a firewood ministry, which I oversee every year. We give firewood to families in need. We’re doing a lot of different community outreach projects throughout the year, and I’m grateful to oversee those. I love being a part of the community and pouring my time and effort back into it.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Adam J. Howard Photography has managed to. We asked if Adam could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“Do the small things. It can be a pain to write a blog or post photos, but taking those little steps to get a little bit of exposure over a long period of time really helps. I think a lot of people, when they start a business that is primarily an online business, they work under the assumption that they can just throw some money at Google or Facebook and get a lot of exposure right away, but most of the time, you have to just hang in there and have a long-term view of what you’re doing. It just takes time. I think people, especially in my generation and younger, just need to put in the time. You won’t be able to make everyone happy, but when you do, find out what it is you did to make that person happy, and hone in on that.”


Congratulations to Adam J. Howard Photography for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Adam for taking the time to speak with us!

They did an awesome job and also put new stripping on my garage door and tightened all the things on it and lubed what needed to be lubed. I highly recommend them.” – Loretta O.

Not Your Average Garage Door Company

We wanted to know what makes Wyoming’s number one garage door company so special, so we took a few minutes to talk with President and Co-Owner, Heidi Stewart.

“If you are looking for a holistic way to heal, you won’t have to look further than Medicine Wheel Wellness. They have a large group of incredibly talented healers working to rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit. I recently had a session with Dr. Sulzer, and it has given me the most lower back pain relief that I have felt in over two years. Not only did his adjustments help relieve the pain; he gave me numerous exercises to incorporate into my daily routine, and this has made all the difference. He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the body and his practice, and it shows. Looking forward to another session with him soon! Highly recommend.” – Julie R.

Not Your Average Acupuncture Clinic

We wanted to learn more about this two-time award winner and how they managed to build such an impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Francine Bartlett, the owner of Medicine Wheel Wellness.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Medicine Wheel Wellness a one-of-a-kind acupuncture clinic in Wyoming. Here’s what Francine had to say:

“The whole collective at Medicine Wheel Wellness is about the actual medicine wheel. We serve people in all four aspects of well-being: physical, mental, spiritual and emotional. …Our acupuncturist is very holistic. She gives a wonderful, comprehensive approach to care. She is surrounded in a facility by 15 other practitioners that are also available. So if she needed assistance or if that client needed more care, we’re really a one-stop-shop for a lot of other services.”

We also asked Francine what their mission is at Medicine Wheel Wellness and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s her response:

“Our vision is really all about making sure our community knows and is educated on a holistic approach. If you’re not being offered care that is comprehensive from those four aspects —- physical, mental, spiritual and emotional — then essentially, you’re not receiving what can be available to you. A lot of people have inconsistent or a slower healing process. Our mission is to make sure people know that, when they come here, there’s a whole healing plan that is centered around the medicine wheel and those four aspects. We really involve nature and ancient wisdom incorporated into how we apply modern modality.”

Building Success Through Great Customer Care

Francine attributes Medicine Wheel Wellness’ strong online reputation to their commitment to providing great customer care, which leads to organic reviews. Francine also told us that they don’t often ask for reviews.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Medicine Wheel Wellness has gotten their name out there through face-to-face outreach within their community, which includes hosting workshops. Each one of their 15 practitioners is active in their community and promotes themselves as well as Medicine Wheel Wellness.

Every business owner wants to build the kind of online reputation Medicine Wheel Wellness has. When we asked Francine what advice she has for those business owners, emphasized the importance of consistency and authenticity, and of having a strategic plan in place.

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“I had several cavities that I didn’t have time to deal with, and things got unbearable. I called to make an appointment, assuming that it would be a while before they could fit me into their schedule. Not only did they get me on the schedule within a few days, but they also fixed all of my cavities, took x-rays and gave me a full cleaning. [It was a] five-star experience, and [they have] a very friendly staff.” – Alex M.

Not Your Average Dental Office

Dr. Catherine Tebay, the owner of Teton Dental Arts, generously gave us a few minutes of her time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Teton Dental Arts apart from the many other dental clinics in Wyoming. Here’s Dr. Tebay’s response:

“We care. We treat our patients and staff like we would our families. We are honest and forthright. Our entire staff believes in the comprehensive nature of whole dental health and looking at the ‘big picture.’ Lastly, we do not ‘sell’ to people; we simply explain and present one’s dental needs in a very straightforward fashion.”

We also wanted to know why they do what they do at Teton Dental Arts and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Dr. Tebay had to say:

“We believe in high-quality, comprehensive dentistry for all. We treat our patients and staff like family. We do not sell to patients. We simply lay things out and give them the ability to take control of their situation. We are positive and honest and try to exceed expectations in every situation.”

Building Success by Treating People Well and Providing a Great Experience

When we asked Dr. Tebay about Teton Dental Arts’ secret to such a strong online reputation, she said:

“A few years ago, I identified the need for a strong online presence. I hired a national business that specializes in websites for dentists. I also hired a young girl who worked in my office helped facilitate the implementation. She was very savvy with social media. We work with another national dental business that helps to remind patients about their appointments. They then follow up with the patient post-visit for reviews. Our yellow page group also has a strong online presence…”

Outside of building the kind of online reputation that any business owner would envy, Teton Dental Arts has spread the word about who they are and what they do through referrals:

“We treat people well and deliver an outstanding experience. Then, they go tell their friends and families. Occasionally (every couple of years), we have an ad in a small, local magazine.”

Clearly, Dr. Tebay knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s her expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Hire people who know what they are doing, and let them do their job. Having a young person around who is very involved in social media is a plus.”


Congratulations to the team at Teton Dental Arts for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Dr. Tebay, for taking the time to speak with us!

The first question we had for Alisha was what makes Child Development Center unique compared to their competition in Wyoming. Here’s what he had to say:

“The Child Development Center puts kids first and listens to their families’ needs and tries to accommodate them by going above and beyond in everything we do to improve the child’s overall development. We offer specialized programs and quality outcomes that show how the CDC has impacted the children we serve.”

We also asked Alisha about Child Development Center’s mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Alisha told us:

“Our mission is to provide family-focused and developmentally appropriate services for children, ages zero to 21.

Building Success by Providing Great Service

When we asked Alisha what their secret is to such a strong online reputation at Child Development Center, she said:

“We serve 530 children and families who just love our program. I think that’s the big thing — just providing great service, and then, in turn, they leave a great review…”

“When you provide great service and have quality outcomes, that will drive more business and community people your way.”

Every business owner wants to grow their business and build their online reputation the way Child Development Center has. Here’s Alisha’s advice for them:

“The biggest thing is just to tell your story. People follow great stories, and we have stories that come out of our business every day.

Wyoming’s Top Rated Local® Beauty Salons and Spas Award Winner: Shear Luck Salon & Spa

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Shear Luck Salon & Spa is an award winner for beauty salons and spas in 2019.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Shear Luck Salon & Spa is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Beauty Salon

We were excited to learn all about Shear Luck Salon & Spa and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner, Careea Carr.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Shear Luck Salon & Spa stand apart from its competitors. Careea said:

“Unlike a traditional salon of independent contractors, I try to be a very involved owner and really set the standard for a good team environment. I think the reason why this matters is that our clients can feel the team vibe and friendliness the second they walk in the door. This makes them comfortable going to anybody in the salon and truly respect our recommendations of each other.”

Building Success And Giving Back

Shear Luck Salon & Spa has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Careea how they have managed to grow their business and get such great reviews. She said:

“My secret is to not be complacent, even though we are already highly rated. I have put out ads or posts stating that their recommendations are amazing, but that we always love online feedback. I think it keeps us on our toes and opens the conversation to correct mistakes that have been made and to help encourage new team members when they get those great ratings back.”

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Shear Luck Salon & Spa has spread the word about who they are and what they do by finding ways to give back to their community. Careea said:

“In my salon, we try to make it known that it’s not just all about the hair, skin, or nails. We are also here to support one another and our clients. Several times a year, we donate to charitable events, like Cowboys Against Cancer, or we will do fundraising for locals in need. At the moment, we are selling bracelets for one of our young clients who is battling leukemia. We want our clients to know we truly care about them and are always here to support them and not just make them look fabulous.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Shear Luck Salon & Spa has managed to. We asked if Careea could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“I think it’s very important to treat all of your clients with the same respect no matter if they’ve been continuously coming to you for years, or if they are sitting in your chair for the first time. I think it’s always important to be consistent, professional, and to strive to have a genuine relationship with your clients. Always treat their hair, skin, or nails as if they were your own.”


Congratulations to Shear Luck Salon & Spa for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Careea for taking the time to speak with us!
