S. Kent Lauson, D.D.S., M.S. Dr. Lauson’s distinguished career as a specialist in orthodontics, dentofacial orthopedics and temporomandibular dysfunction (TMJ) has spanned over 40 years. He did undergraduate studies at the University of Wyoming, later attaining his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1971 from the University of Iowa Dental School. He then served two years in the USAF Dental Corps, where he received a Periodontics Certificate and was the Preventive Dentistry Officer of his base. After the Air Force, he completed his orthodontic residency, receiving his Master’s in Orthodontics in 1975 at St. Louis University Medical Center. He has been in private practice in Metro Denver ever since. During this time, he developed techniques for orthodontic treatment resulting in full beautiful smiles without the removal of any permanent teeth and is well known for getting excellent results in complex orthodontic and TMJ cases. These techniques are shown in the many published articles that he has completed.  A best-selling author with his book Straight Talk about Crooked Teeth, Dr. Lauson has lectured at many national dental and orthodontic meetings to spread his influence and elevate the state of orthodontics. His 10 Keys to Facial Harmony has received praise from noted authorities around the world and his techniques have improved the lives of thousands of individuals.  His latest book, The NEO Way, is a layman’s guide to very early orthodontic treatment.  It teaches the philosophy of being aware of how malocclusions develop in the first place and educates the parent on what to look for even as early as when they have their new baby.  It educates them to a new more holistic way of treating orthodontics which is better for the patient, the caring parent and the orthodontist.  This philosophy is the driving force for NEO New Early Orthodontics with its first office in Lone Tree Colorado.  Recently he has completed an online course for orthodontist worldwide and is lecturing along with 20 other orthodontists throughout the world in the virtual annual conference AAPMD (American Academy of Physiologic Medicine and Dentistry) in November, 2020. Dr. Lauson is currently listed in the  Guide to America’s Top Dentists,” published by Consumers Research Council of America. He received the distinction, “Best of Aurora” in orthodontics from the US Local Business Association. He also is Colorado’s representative for Distinguished Physicians of the World. Over his long career, he has received countless awards and is listed in dozens of Who’s Who publications. Dr. Lauson is a Fellow of the International College of Craniomandibular Orthopedics and has memberships in the American Association of Orthodontists, Rocky Mountain Society of Orthodontists, Colorado Association of Orthodontists, the American Association for Functional Orthodontics, the American Dental Association, the Colorado Dental Association, the Metro Denver Dental Society, and the American Academy and Board of Head, Facial and Neck Pain and TMJ Orthopedics.
