Q&A with Dr. Browne
Q. What inspired you to become a dentist?
- I wanted to be in the healthcare field in order to provide for other people. I saw the trials, tribulations, and hoops my dad had to go through to take care of his teeth, and I thought it would be awesome to help provide dental care for people and change their dental cycle. If I can reach a patient early enough, I may be able to prevent them from going down a long road of dental work.
Q. What do you enjoy most about being a dentist?
- I love the transformation process dentistry offers—it gives me the chance to change a person’s smile and bite in a matter of days. I also love getting to know my patients and being a part of their lives. I also enjoy the constant evolution of the field—dentistry is in such an exciting time with technology. Every month or so something big hits the market that dramatically improves the way we can take care of our patients.
Q. As an implant dentist, what technology do you use? What is your favorite piece of technology?
- I am trained in the CEREC® system and other essential technologies associated with state-of-the-art implant dentistry. I guess my favorite piece of tech is the 3D printer because it is just so cool. I have a 3D printer at home that I use to print surgical guides.
Q. What do you consider to be the most significant breakthroughs in dentistry? And why?
- The easy answer to this question is anesthesia—imagine the limitations a dentist would have if patients could feel everything during treatment. My second answer would have to be dental implants. Specifically, dental implants have vastly improved the quality of life for denture wearers because we can now offer implants to help anchor dentures for added stability, functionality, and security.
Q. What are your favorite procedures? What areas of dentistry are you most passionate about?
- Dental implants—I love the drastic difference of having a missing tooth versus having a tooth. I think there is so much value in “putting teeth back in the mouth”. Oftentimes, dentistry is about taking away—removing teeth, reducing parts of teeth for crowns, removing fillings and decay—and I love being able to put teeth back in.
Q. What led you to practice dentistry in Las Vegas?
- My wife and I moved here so that she could attend school. I wanted to work under Dr. Joe at True Dentistry because he is one of the best in the business!
Q. What do you enjoy most about working with your team at True Dentistry?
- It’s the Army and athlete in me—I love being part of a group trying to accomplish a common goal. There’s nothing better than rallying around each other and getting to achieve something.
Q. With so many dentists in Las Vegas to choose from, why should patients choose you?
- I love what I do and I love providing the best care I possibly can. I lose sleep when something in dentistry doesn’t turn out like I want it to.
Q. Are there any cases you are particularly proud of?
- In the Army I did an anterior case that turned out really well. The patient had been wanting the treatment for a long time, but was unable to get it because they kept moving around for the Army. I worked really closely with my Army lab tech and the patient was so happy about the outcome that we all cried.
Q. Aside from dentistry, what else are you passionate about?
- I am passionate about sports. I love competition. I think there are so many parallels between sports and life. I like to be outdoors and just enjoy every day as much as possible.
Q. Do you have any last words of advice for someone looking for a great dentist?
- Go to someone who loves what they do and choose someone you can trust.
