Brent A. Bradford, D.D.S
Dr. Brent A. Bradford welcomes you to his general and family dental practice located in the North Medical Center in Liverpool, New York. Dr. Bradford takes an interest in the impact that oral health can have on the overall health of his patients, in addition to helping them maintain or achieve a feeling of self-confidence related to their teeth and smile.
Dr. Bradford particularly enjoys helping patients in the areas of aesthetic and restorative dentistry. His aesthetic work includes bleaching, bonding and veneers. His restorative dentistry goes beyond crown and bridge work to include the innovative mini dental implants.
Some of his continuing education includes extensive training with Dr. Todd Shatkin, who patented the technique of placing a mini dental implant and crown in one visit. Dr. Bradford has completed a mini residency with Dr. Shatkin in Buffalo, New York, and has since been offering the revolutionary benefits of mini implant dentistry. These small implants can be immediately "loaded" with the crown or dentures, to offer an immediate solution to poorly fitting dentures or missing teeth.
All procedures can be performed using oral conscious sedation for fearful or anxious patients.
Dr. Bradford has a special interest in treating patients who suffer from snoring and/or obstructive sleep apnea, and will work in collaboration with the patient's sleep physician. Oral appliances have been found to be an effective treatment for patients unable to tolerate a CPAP machine. If left untreated, obstructive sleep apnea can lead to severe medical problems.
Dr. Bradford has been in private practice since 2000, when he completed a general practice residency at the SUNY Health Science Center in Syracuse, New York. A 1998 graduate of Indiana University School of Dentistry, Dr. Bradford also holds a Master's of Business Administration and a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Southern Indiana. He is a member of:
The Academy of General Dentistry
The American Dental Association
The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine
The Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation
The International Academy of Mini Dental Implants (founding member)
