About Dr. LaFonte

Bret E. LaFonteDDS

Dr. LaFonte is known for his gentle and creative touch. He enjoys helping each of his patients improve their health, appearance, and self-esteem by creating the smile of their dreams, and also maintaining the health and function of their teeth, gums, and bite.

 Dr. LaFonte is a Colorado native, having graduated from Arapahoe High School in 1981. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Colorado State University in 1986 majoring in Speech Communications. He finished his formal education at the University of Colorado's School of Dentistry in Denver in 1993.  He is a member of the American Dental Association, the Colorado Dental Association, and the Metro Denver Dental Society. His thirst for learning and desire to provide his patients with the most current techniques, materials and technologies drives Dr. LaFonte to pursue multiple continuing education opportunities throughout the year.

 When not in the office, Dr. LaFonte enjoys spending time with his family. Many of you may remember Dr. LaFonte's wife, Gayle, who was a dental hygienist in this office for nine years.  Bret and Gayle have four children: daughter Kendra, identical twin boys Kyle and Dane, and youngest son Cole.  All of the children are young adults now, leaving Dr. LaFonte and Gayle to adjust to being an empty nesters. A sports enthusiast, Dr. LaFonte enjoys watching the local pro sports teams (don't get him going about the Broncos!!) and playing the occasional round of golf.  He enjoys anything Disney related as well. It's a rare year when Dr. LaFonte, his wife, and his children don't visit one of the Disney parks.                  

Dr. LaFonte's philosophy to treat each patient like a family member, is seen in his gentle and caring chair side manner. His conservative approach and careful diagnosis of each individual's dental needs ensure the quality of care that each of his patients deserve. Whether you just need a check up or need more involved dental work, Dr. ​LaFonte always puts his patient's best care first.
