He is also active in The Spear Continuum, having taken a number of classes at their headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona as well as being active in a local Spear study club.
One of his primary interests is in the field of conservative esthetic dentistry and the use of composite resin to achieve lifelike esthetic restorations. He has taken numerous courses at The Center for Esthetic Excellence (CEE) and has been an active follower of some of the leading esthetic instructors both in the US and abroad. In particular, he has traveled internationally to study with Newton Fahl- in Brazil-in an effort to broaden his horizons with respect to technique and materials.
In an effort to integrate new modalities into the practice of conservative dentistry, Dr Bradley has added new technologies such as Invisalign® and Botox to help facilitate completing more complex cases.
He is also qualified to evaluate and treat certain cases relating to Sleep Apnea. Further education has allowed for treatment of cases relating to Tempero Mandibular Disorder (TMD- commonly referred to as TMJ), by using computerized Neuromuscular Jaw Tracking.
