Dr. Bryce J. Cushing

 

“Dr. Bryce” has been treating kids for nearly ten years in the dental office.  His experience with children shows as he helps them get through the dental procedures.  He understands that each child is unique and responds differently to the whole dental experience.  He wants to make each visit to Smiles 4 Kids dental office a successful and enjoyable experience for your child.  Making this happen is very rewarding for him.

 

Dr. Bryce graduated with honors from dental school at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry.  After dental school, he worked in his own general dental office.  It was during this time that he realized he loved working with kids and excelled at it.  He was then privileged to continue his education and specialize in Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Florida, one of the nation’s top residencies.  This residency afforded Dr. Bryce a comprehensive knowledge in all aspects of pediatric dentistry.

 

Dr. Bryce, his wife Traci and their three children are new to the Omaha area, but are excited to call it home!  If he’s not at work, you can find him at one of his kids sporting events cheering them on.
