Why Did You Want to Become a Dentist?
Dr. Bronner’s uncle was a dentist, and during one fated trip to his dental office, a young Dr. Bronner was told that he would need a shot (anesthetic) so his tooth could be fixed. Dr. Bronner immediately ran and made it all the way to the front door before he was met by his dad who picked him up and placed him back in the dental chair. He handed Dr. Bronner a mirror and said, “Hold this while uncle Abe fixes your tooth…don’t you want to see how he does it?” Dr. Bronner took the mirror and proceeded to critique his uncle’s dentistry indefinitely. From there, he says that his path was set!
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Bronner completed his Bachelor of Science at Towson University in Maryland and continued his education at Adelphi University in Garden City, New York, earning his master’s degree. He then attended the New York University College of Dentistry in Manhattan, where he completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery. Following dental school, Dr. Bronner underwent residency training at North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System/Northwell Health in New York, earning Resident of the Year in his second year.
Throughout his career, Dr. Bronner has been dedicated to furthering his knowledge. He completed the Invisalign® Boot Camp as well as advanced training in occlusion and treatment planning at the Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida. He has also taken courses focused on dental implant placement, tooth extractions, bone grafting, restorative dentistry, and emergency treatment. Altogether, he has received over 500 hours of continuing education since he started practicing.
Dr. Bronner is also a member of multiple professional organizations, including the:
American Dental Association
New York State Dental Association
Academy of General Dentistry
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
At home, Dr. Bronner’s favorite thing to do is spend time with his wife, Erin, and their dog, Benny. When they aren’t visiting his nieces and nephews downstate, they like to be outdoors and hike, so they take mini trips all over the northeast multiple times a year. He also likes to spend his weekends flying drones!
