Prentice Orthodontics opened in 2006 as a state-of-the-art, fully computerized practice, offering the most technologically-advanced treatment procedures available at our Broomfield office. Dr. Prentice uses all forms of digital imaging, including photographs, X-rays, and models to develop a treatment plan that is individualized for each patient. Being involved in the community is extremely close to Dr. Prentice’s heart. She sponsors and donates to fundraisers for many of the schools in the Broomfield/Westminster/Thornton area.
When Dr. Prentice is not with her patients, she spends her free time with her wonderful husband, Dan, and their energetic son, Ryder. She loves our wonderful Colorado lifestyle and enjoys skiing, hiking, biking, traveling, reading and cooking. Please join us for a lifetime of great smiles!
