Committed to Seeing You Smile
When choosing a new dental practice to visit, the quality of experience is based on much more than just the doctor himself – you also want to feel comfortable and welcomed around the rest of the team too! Thankfully, our tight-knit group of dental assistants, hygienists, and coordinators are truly the best, and they can’t wait to get to know you from the very first appointment. With us, your comfort and safety is prioritized every step of the way throughout the treatment process.
Dr. Bunker and his entire team are especially interested in making our patients feel right at home. Each member of our team is highly skilled and strives to provide energetic and warm service for each patient in a gentle, family friendly, technologically advanced practice. We will always put your needs first to achieve efficient, comprehensive, and pleasant treatment results.

Growing up, Brittany was never a fan of going to the dentist but that quickly changed after meeting Dr. Bunker. She is now Dr. Bunker’s biggest fan (who also just happens to be his wife of 18 years). After graduating from Brigham Young University she taught high school English before moving back east for dental school. Five kids later, when she’s not running her daily nonprofit shuttle service for their children, she assists Dr. Bunker with all the behind the scenes that comes with running a practice. She loves spending time with her family, reading any chance she gets and late night chats with her husband over a bowl of ice cream.
