University of PA School of Dentistry Honors Dr. Josh Bresler in February Alumni Spotlight
For Immediate Release
In honor of National Children’s Dental Health Month 2021, meet Penn Dental’s February Alumni Spotlight, Josh Bresler (GD’05)! Dr. Bresler (and his 2 siblings) followed in his father’s footsteps by pursuing a career in pediatric dentistry that allowed him to go ‘play’, rather than go to ‘work’.
Dr. Bresler credits @penndentalpeds residency experience alongside practical experience @childrensphila, with his comfort in treating complex cases. Most patients are referred to pediatric dentists from general dentists; cases that require more extensive experience in complex issues, behavior management, and complicated medical histories.
Dr. Bresler’s biggest piece of advice to parents is to bring their child to the dentist before their first birthday – creating healthy oral health habits for both parent and the child. He views misinformation as the highest barrier to children’s oral health. Dental caries is the most prevalent chronic disease in children, and Dr. Bresler wants parents to understand that when left untreated, it can cause long-term problems. He hopes that parents trust their dentist, and will work in conjunction with the dentist to treat and improve their children’s oral health.
Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters Makes $5,000 Donation to Sunshine Foundation
Because COVID19 canceled 2020 events, we were unable to hold DOC’S ROCK THE BLOCK CAR SHOW, an annual fundraiser held in memory of our beloved founder and original “Doc Bresler”, Dr. David A. Bresler.
The Sunshine Foundation, a national wish-granting organization that answers dreams of children who have a chronic, life-long illness or medical condition, was dear to the heart of Doc Bresler and his family, and it has been a recipient of their decades-long, philanthropic efforts.
GIVING BACK and helping children, continues to be important to Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters. Although the Car Show was canceled, thanks to our offices’ and Car Show sponsors’ generosity, we were able to honor Doc’s memory and make a contribution of $5,000 to The Sunshine Foundation (www.sunshinefoundation.org).
THANK YOU to our special sponsors who made this philanthropic gift possible:
~Physician and Tactical Health Services
~Morton Towing and Recovering
~Police and Fire Union
~Orthodox Auto Company
