Matt Bruner D.D.S., M.S.
Topic: In It To Win It - Creating a Culture of Excellence
Dr. Bruner has been providing high-caliber comprehensive orthodontic care since 2002. He attended Loma Linda University where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1998. After serving in the U.S. Army Dental Corps as a general dentist and flight surgeon for the 25th Infantry Division at Schofield Barracks, Dr. Bruner left general dentistry in order to become a specialist in orthodontics. Dr. Bruner graduated with his master’s degree and specialty certificate in orthodontics from the University of Louisville. After completing his last tour of duty, where he served as the Chief of Orthodontics at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, Major Bruner and his family returned home to Redmond, Washington.
Dr. Bruner is a member of the American Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, Hawaiian Society of Orthodontists, Washington State Society of Orthodontists, Washington State Dental Association and the Seattle King County Dental Society. Dr. Bruner also served as a member of the recognized cleft lip and palate team in Hawaii and as a mentor in two ADA-accredited residency training programs.
Dr. Bruner’s commitment to providing his patients with the most outstanding care available is evidenced by the fact that he has earned his board certification in orthodontics. This means that his skills have been evaluated through a board of his peers and he has earned the title of Diplomate by the American Board of Orthodontics, a distinction that the majority of orthodontists have not earned. In February, 2010, Dr. Bruner continued his quest for excellence by successfully completing the American Board of Orthodontics re-certification examination in Dallas, thereby continuing his board certified status.
Dr. Bruner also enjoys teaching orthodontics with Dr. Pitts at UNLV Orthodontic Residency Program.
