Jeffrey F. Yelle DDS
My name is Dr. Jeffrey Yelle and I am blessed to be able to practice dentistry and even more lucky to be able to do it in such a beautiful setting. Thank you for visiting our site and taking the first step in getting to know me and my team. We strive to do our best every day and if you come to visit us we will do everything in our power to make your visit welcoming and comfortable.
I would like to share a little bit about myself. I grew up in the Mountains of New Hampshire where I developed a deep appreciation of the outdoors. I also come from a family of academics where learning was engraved into my DNA. One of my favorite activities is riding my mountain bike while listening to a scientific podcast- I know, odd, my kids pick on me about it. I am fortunate enough to have three wonderful boys and an amazing wife to adventure with. Every chance we get, we explore all Colorado has to offer. We love to run, hike, bike, ski, and meditate outdoors. I have only knocked 5 14ers off my list so far but hopefully by the time you are reading this that number will be higher.
I look forward to meeting you and showing you what sets us apart. We have an amazing team that doesn’t just treat dentistry as a job but loves engaging with our patients and getting to know them. We are committed to educating and serving you better.
Currently, there is a great deal of research going into inflammation and how all body systems are connected. The Medical/Dental community can no longer operate under the assumption that the materials and treatments we use and perform don’t have an effect on your total body. For me, this is extremely exciting and with the advent of new technology, we have more diagnostic capabilities and treatment modalities than ever before. I love being a dentist in this environment and enjoy staying abreast of all the latest research and technology. I hope to meet you soon!
