We are so excited to announce the newest member of our dental team, Dr. Julie Brann. Dr. Core has been on an exhaustive search for the past few months to find the exact right person to join our team, and we have finally found her!
Most of your know that our office is open 6 days a week, Monday through Saturday, but what you may not know is that Dr. Core has been working all six days by himself for the past 8 months. None of us know how he has been able to keep up that pace, but he has been nothing short of amazing during this time. Dr. Brann will be taking over on Fridays and Saturdays for him going forward, and working alongside him during the week and Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
We first met Dr. Brann while she was in her residency at the St. Vincent DePaul Lutheran Medical Center here in Phoenix in early 2016. We were so impressed with her clinical knowledge and her level of dentistry that she was performing, we know that she was going to be the right fit for us. The only issue was that she was not available to start until July due to her obligations with her residency. So, Dr. Core pushed on, working six days a week, until Dr. Brann was available because he knew she would be a perfect fit for us.
An Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency is a year-long program that less than 5% of all dentists enter after they graduate dental school. It is reserved for the most talented dentists in their class, and only for dentists that are dedicated to furthering their education and learning the latest techniques in dentistry. As stated above, Dr. Brann completed her residency at the St. Vincent DePaul Lutheran Medical Center after finishing dental school at Tufts University in Boston, MA. Before Tufts, Dr. Brann received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at Oakland University in Eastern Michigan where she is originally from.
What we love most about Dr. Brann is her compassion for her patients. She has completed mission trips to Rajahmundry, India in 2011, and Port-Au-Prince, Haiti in 2014 providing dental treatment to underprivileged children and adults who were without access to dental care. She has carried that compassion throughout her residency, and through to her work here at our office.
Dr. Brann has only been a Phoenician for a little over a year, so when she is not here in the office seeing patients, she is out exploring what Phoenix has to offer with her husband Glen. You can also catch her cheering on her beloved Michigan Wolverines, but we will convert her to a Sun Devil fan in no time at all!
