This year marks Dr. Robert Brei’s silver anniversary as a practicing dentist in Tucson. After graduating with honors and receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Loyola School of Dentistry in Chicago, Dr. Brei opened an office in Tucson 25 years ago. He now performs both cosmetic and routine dental procedures, including full-mouth dental reconstruction, dental implants, dental veneers, and smile makeovers.
During his career, Dr. Brei has been recognized as one of Tucson Lifestyle Magazine’s Top Dentists. This accolade is especially noteworthy because he was chosen for this honor by his peers—other dentists in Tucson. He has also been awarded a Fellowship in the Academy of Dentistry International, which “is bestowed on dentists whose professional, civic, and related accomplishments are truly outstanding.” Most recently, Dr. Brei was chosen by Expertise, an online resource which finds the best practitioners in any field, as one of the top 18 dentists in Tucson among 145 throughout the city. He has also been listed on the topDentists website since 2010.
Some of the things Dr. Brei loves most about being a dentist is the mix between science, management, engineering, and artistry. “Each day is different, and I love the challenges,” he says. “Another thing I really enjoy is the continuing education component of what I do. Technological advances in the dental profession happen every day as techniques, materials used, and procedures become increasingly advanced. The opportunities to learn and improve are endless.”
Although a lot has changed in the 25 years since Dr. Brei opened his practice, he’s kept pace with technology. His comprehensive website gives patients the ability to schedule appointments online and provides informative blogs on a variety of dental health topics. He is also active on social media, including Facebook and Twitter.
“Most of all, the thing I probably like best, is the opportunity to help people and to make a difference in their lives,” he says. Dr. Brei has been doing exactly that; making a difference in people’s lives in Tucson for a quarter of a century.
