This week our guest is a figure that is well-known in the community, who is an official sponsor for local sports teams and is even partnered with one of Philadelphia’s museums, but who has an occupation that many would not normally associate with that level of exposure, Pediatric Dentistry. While David Bresler and his sons Jason, Josh and daughter Jill do work on adults, they primarily focus their practice on children.
How did David take what was relatively a small practice and turn it into the city’s largest pediatric dental practice and one of it’s most recognizable brands. That is what our radio show this week will focus on. Below is just a brief look at their history and a link to his website. If you really want to learn more, please tune in this week 10am Saturday on News Talk 990AM or listen live right here.
Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters – a unique pediatric dental practice, was founded by David Bresler in 1981 by buying an abandoned gas station in Roxborough with his fathers help. Doubled the size in 1985. Began adding other dentists and became the 3rd largest Pedo practice in Philly. Bought the largest Pedo practice in Philly in 1997 in the Greater Northeast area, catapulting the practice to megasize proportions. Opened Ft. Washington/Dresher in 1999, followed by the opening of more offices in Jenkintown, Newtown Square/Media, South Philly, and 3 years ago, Lower Northeast Philly.
His three children have now joined him in practice. His 2 sons are Board-Certified Pediatric Dentists, his daughter graduated from Temple’s Kornberg School of Dentistry last year and is waiting to hear from a Pediatric residency program. Both daughter-in-laws are also dentists and David’s wife, Sherry, is the company’s COO.
Six years ago, they opened their Red Lion Surgicenter – the Country’s first free-standing ambulatory surgicenter dedicated exclusively to dental procedures performed on children and Special Needs adults. Offices are now known throughout the Philadelphia and suburban areas as the “Disneyland of Dental Offices”.
A marketing wizard, David’s wacky and highly decorated marketing vehicles are often seen in community parades. health fairs and sporting events. Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters has been the Official Pediatric Dentist of the Flyers, Sixers, Wings, Union and is longtime Proud Partner of the Philadelphia Phillies. They have learned about buying land/buildings, renting property, buying equipment correctly and not overpaying, and have shared that information and knowledge with hundreds of dental students over the years. Their slogan is: “the kids dentist, kids love to visit!”
