He greatly enjoys working with people, building connections, and providing clear, supportive communication to patients in need.

Dr. Bradley’s grandfather was actually the first periodontist in the state of Nebraska. He served as an amazing role model and had a great career. Dr. Bradley also knew that he was very satisfied with the work he did to help others, which had a profound effect on his younger self. As he grew older, it only made sense to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps – and he’s never regretted that decision for a minute.
Dr. Bradley graduated Summa Cum Laude from Wayne State College before transitioning to the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry, where he completed his dental doctorate with high honors. He remained at the school to complete his Master of Science and certificate in periodontics. Today, he is Board-Certified by the American Board of Periodontology, which represents his commitment to continuing education and the mastery of periodontal specialty services.
While in private practice with a group of local dentists, Dr. Bradley formed a Spear Study Club to pursue further training. He is also certified in the Hybridge Full Arch Technique, which has been one of the most rewarding aspects of his job over the years. He currently serves as an adjunct faculty in the periodontics residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry and is a member of the following organizations:
Dr. Bradley met his wife Mikala while on a mission trip in college to San Diego. Today, they have three children named Easton, Leighton, and Josiah. Most of his free time is taken up by the kiddos, and he wouldn’t have it any other way! Additionally, he and his wife enjoy working out together, playing sports, snowboarding, and being outdoors. Most of his physical activity is quickly negated by his love of food and trying out new restaurants. Also, because his wife’s family lives in the Los Angeles area, most of their vacations are spent in southern California, and his favorite vacation spot of all time is Lake Tahoe. The family stays active in their local church as well, and any extra scraps of time are spent watching movies and reading books.
