Dr. Bram on why he's a dentist

Well, I've developed a passion for dentistry over the past 25 years starting out as an undergrad. I enjoyed science and I volunteered at hospitals. I knew I wanted to be in healthcare. I worked as a nursing assistant while I was studying at the University of Arizona. I just enjoyed the whole climate of healthcare and the fellowship, and I wanted to be a provider.

I started in 1986 and each day I just feel more and more blessed, and so settling in after almost 30 years of practicing, there's a certain sense of freedom when you feel really, really comfortable to be able to restore somebody's quality of life and their self esteem and their self confidence. It's powerful when people hear they get compliments on their smile. They don't have to be cautious when they're at a restaurant and look in a menu. They can enjoy social functions around the holidays. The reward is the gratification from the patient, referring a patient, “Hey, go see Dr. Brar. I was full of fear and anxiety, trepidation. I was embarrassed and now I feel my confidence is back and referred my whole family there.” That's pretty powerful. That's what motivates me.


In addition to his work at Brar Dentistry, Dr. Bram has completed dental missionary work all over the world, including Israel, Fiji, and China.

His interests include running in fundraisers, scuba diving, underwater photography, and coaching his son’s soccer team for AYSO Hinsdale U-9.

Most recently, Dr. Bram participated in the Soldier Field 10 Miler on May 28, 2016, with over 9,000 runners. He finished in 01:45. He then competed in the Daisy Dash Father’s Day 5K, which he finished in 29:15.
