Meet The Doctors

Dr. Ashley Fontenot, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Lafayette

Dr. Ashley Fontenot is a native of Eunice and graduated from Eunice High School in 2000. She attended Louisiana State University at Eunice and graduated with academic honors in 2003 with an Associate of Science Degree.

Dr. Ashley became interested in chiropractic when she was a child. Her father’s best friend was a chiropractor and so were his two sons. Dr. Ashley’s father would take her to get adjusted on a regular basis and this helped to keep her healthy way into adulthood. She attended Texas Chiropractic College in Pasadena, TX and graduated in 2006 with a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree and a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology.

She practiced with a neurosurgeon in the Texas Medical Center in Houston in early 2007 then took a position as an associate doctor in Angleton, TX and practiced there for six years. Now she is the clinic director and chiropractor at The Joint in Lafayette.

She has adjusted thousands of patients ranging from infants, children, pregnant women, athletes, and geriatric patients. Her passion is to help others achieve optimal health and well being by enhancing their natural ability to heal through chiropractic care. She is married to Dr. Michael Fontenot, who is also a chiropractor. They have two children, a daughter named Camila and a son named Micah.

Dr. Benjamin Penton, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Lafayette

Dr. Benjamin Penton joined Lafayette’s team of local healthcare providers at The Joint Chiropractic in 2021 to do the work he finds so rewarding.

“The best thing about being in this field is having a role in helping people live a pain-free life,” he says. “It is so gratifying when someone walks into the office with pain and walks out pain-free. Being able to help people in this community is icing on the cake.”

A native of southern Louisiana, Dr. Penton married his high school sweetheart, a speech language pathologist, and they have two sons and a dog named Duke, named for the legendary college basketball program. Outside the office, he likes working out, the outdoors, and spending time with his family. Also, he loves sports, Duke basketball, and everything LSU.

He attended Louisiana State and earned a bachelor’s degree in human movement science. His master’s degree in exercise physiology was earned at University of Louisiana at Monroe. He earned his doctorate of chiropractic from Texas Chiropractic College in Pasadena, Tex.

Athletics played a huge role in his decision to pursue a chiropractic path. “Seeing my teammates get hurt and not understanding what was going on and not knowing how to help them always bothered me,” he says. “So, at a young age, I knew I wanted to be in a position where I could help people recover from injuries. Luckily, I found chiropractic and knew that avenue was a way I could accomplish that.”

Dr. Jereme Menard, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Lafayette

Dr. Jereme’ Menard became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2019 in Lafayette and has been serving patients in the area since 2018.

“What really drives me the most about chiropractic care is the impact I have on patient’s lives by helping improve their quality of life,” he says. ”Most of the patients I treat will tell you that I am very detailed in my approach to care and will thoroughly explain where the source of their symptoms is coming from.”

Dr. Jereme’ Menard is a native of Maurice and a graduate of North Vermilion High School where he participated in both football and wrestling. He received his Associate Degree in Science when attending Louisiana State University in Eunice in 2012. In 2014, he received his Bachelor’s of Science degree from Texas Chiropractic College. He continued his education with Texas Chiropractic College to earn his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2016.

“I first got into chiropractic care when I was twelve years old. After my mother got into an auto accident, she brought me to the chiropractor she was seeing for treatment at the time and he did wonders for my low back pain. I started realizing after about 10-12 treatments that not only was my back pain from the accident gone but also the headaches I was experiencing way before it. I realized right then and there that I wanted to do the same thing: improve and change people’s lives.”

“When I am not treating patients, I enjoy spending time with my wife, two kids, and our husky. I also enjoy playing video games when I have the time, working out, binge watching TV shows, or working on projects around the house.”
