General, cosmetic, and reconstructive dentist, Nicolas Pruett, DDS, is the founder of Broadmoor Dental, located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. At his practice, Dr. Pruett enjoys working with patients one-on-one and catering to their unique wants and needs. It brings him joy to help community members achieve beautiful, healthy smiles.

Dr. Pruett approaches dentistry through the lens of three keywords: artistry, compassion, and excellence. He recognizes the natural beauty of every smile.

To create enhanced smiles, he identifies anything that detracts from that beauty and designs conservative, harmonious restorations to eliminate those distractions.

Dr. Pruett earned his bachelor's degree in economics from Seattle University and his Master of Business from Seattle Pacific University. Afterward, he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of the Pacific, located in Stockton, California. From 1996 to 2005, Dr. Pruett was one of the foremost cosmetic dentists working in Hawaii and the Pacific Rim. He was so sought after that patients flew in to see him from surrounding areas including Japan, the outer Hawaiian Islands, and the West Coast of the United States.

Dr. Pruett has since called Colorado Springs home for nearly twenty years. Here, he lives with his wife and son.


The Pruett family are the proprietors of Broadmoor Dental, the award-winning practice off South Nevada in the old Wachovia bank building, but there’s more to the Pruetts than white smiles and healthy teeth. Let us introduce you to the family behind the brick building. Meet the Pruetts: Nicolas, Trudi, and Adin, along with their Maltese, Scout (who you met in life in Broadmoor’s December 2017 “Precious Pets” column), and the newest addition to their family, a Bichon Frise rescue, Daisy Mae.

The son of a soldier, Nicolas has done his fair share of moving, as many of you in the Broadmoor community have. He was in born Fort Hood, Texas; raised in Kirkland, Washington; and has been stationed throughout Germany, France, and Virginia. Subsequent to his undergraduate studies at Seattle University and an MBA from Seattle Pacific University, Dr. Pruett achieved his Doctorate in Dental Surgery at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco. Upon completing dental school, he spent 10 years in Oahu, Hawaii, where he opened and operated a number of dental group practices. The move from Hawaii to Colorado was somewhat happenstance. On yet another eternal flight from Hawaii to the “mainland,” Dr. Pruett sat next to a Colorado realtor. As chance may have it, the realtor had a few listings on hand. The math was simple: three times the property, for 1/3rd the cost, SAT test scores ranking top in the nation, more sunshine per year than Florida, clean air, mountain fresh water, and you can drive for hours in a straight line versus perpetually circumnavigating an island. The trade-offs were easy: skiing for surfing, brown trout for marlin, geckos for black bears... (maybe not so easy), and country music for Don Ho.
