Brett P. Lent, DDS MS
Dr. Brett Lent grew up in Santa Monica, California and was always active in the community, and local athletics. He played baseball, soccer, water polo and swam. He was also an active member of the Boy Scouts. He moved to Fresno in 2007 with his wife Shana and quickly realized that it would be a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. Together, they have a son, Parker, who was born in 2013 and a daughter, Katelynn, who was born in 2016. Besides enjoying the thrills and challenges of parenthood, Dr. Lent enjoys travelling, golf, skiing, cooking, walking his dogs and spending time with friends and family, especially over a good meal.
He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at UCLA in 2007. Dr. Brett Lent also holds a Bachelor of Science from UCSB in Molecular Cellular Developmental Biology and a Master of Science from UCLA in Oral Biology. During his time at UCLA he also served as a research assistant in studies regarding the chewing efficiency in denture wearers and implant patients at the West Los Angeles VA Hospital.
At UCLA, Dr. Lent was one of three members of his class to receive the Excellence in Restorative Dentistry award. However, as Dr. Lent believes in providing the highest level of care to his patients and community, he continues his pursuit of excellence in dentistry through continuing education. He takes over 100 hours annually, four times the required amount. He is always excited to learn about and embrace advances in dentistry that will benefit his patients’ lives. Dr. Lent is a member of the Spear Dental Education Faculty Club, which is a prestigious interdisciplinary group of practitioners focused on comprehensive treatment planning to achieve optimal, long lasting results.
