Meet The Doctors

Lance Q. Bruntz, DMD, MSD

dr-lance-bruntzI’m fortunate to be in a profession that transforms lives on a daily basis! Having a great smile is important to many people. It instills self confidence, promotes personal pride, enhances overall health and is many times the first thing people notice when they meet you. It truly is rewarding to help so many people in this way.  I’m also blessed to have a great supporting team to help share in my passion as well.   We pride ourselves on great customer service and the highest quality of orthodontics we can deliver. We look forward to helping create the perfect smile for you!

Education

As a native Nevadan, I was born in Yerington and raised in Carson City where I graduated from Carson High School. I earned my Bachelors degree from the University of Nevada, Reno, graduating with distinction. I then received my Doctorate with honors from Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon. As part of my continuing education, I was granted the award for Exceptional Interest in the Development of the Oro-Facial Complex by the American Association of Orthodontics in 2001. Additionally, I was elected into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Dental Society. Upon completion of my dental degree, I attended Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio to complete my residency in Orthodontics and was granted my Masters degree in dentistry after defending my thesis.

Continuing Education

Our practice is known for delivering the most advanced, leading edge orthodontics available.  To keep on top of this ever-changing technology, we make it a priority to attend as many local and national orthodontic and dental meetings as possible.  I am an active member of the American Dental Association, the prestigious Schulman Orthodontic Study Group, and the Northern Nevada Dental Society.   I also served as a delegate to the Northern Nevada Dental Association for 10 years. I also am a Premier Preferred Provider of Invisalign.

In the Office

I love coming to work everyday.  My favorite part is seeing how excited patients are to get started in treatment and how enthusiastic they are the day they get them off.  It’s also fun to see how kids grow and change into young adults, as well as witnessing the overwhelming joy some adults have as we give them the smile they have always wished for.   We have a terrific staff that loves to take care of our patients.  They receive numerous compliments on a daily basis of how nice they are and how much it shows that they love what they do.

SureSmile and Invisalign are an awesome part of our practice.  We are one of the most experienced SureSmile providers in the nation, which is fun to brag about.  We are also one of a few premeir providers of Invisalign in our area.   These revolutionary technologies really have motivated me to become a better orthodontist and makes me proud knowing that I’m creating the best smile and healthiest bite possible in the shortest time.  In my residency program, I never thought I would be using 3D computer software, robotics, and space-age wires to create personalized smiles.  Orthodontics has really changed in just a matter of years!

Life at Home

My wife, Tracy, and I have a son, Landon, and daughter, Carrigan. We also have our first child (our Beagle) named Nyobi. In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities including golf, jet skiing, wakeboarding, mountain biking, running, camping, hiking, snow skiing and snowboarding.  My favorite activity though is spending time with my kids.  I love having fun with them and watching them grow and advance in life.  From reading Harry Potter with my son to teaching him how to ski and playing picnic with my daughter to dancing around the room with her as her prince, children are definitely what life is worth living for!

DANIEL K. WALTON, DDS, MS

Orthodontics is an exciting and rewarding profession and I feel lucky to be a part of it. I became interested in orthodontics at a young age because I loved how science and art were used together to create beautiful smiles and provide a lifelong service to patients. It’s great being able to interact with my patients every day. I love seeing the positive changes that take place and the confidence they gain as I help create the smile they’ve always wanted.

Education

I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, but moved to the States to attend college at Brigham Young University. After graduating with honors from BYU’s School of Business I attended dental school at the University of California San Francisco where I was awarded the Regent Scholarship, the highest recognition awarded to entering dental students. I completed my orthodontic specialty training with a three-year residency at The Ohio State University where I received my Master of Science in Orthodontics.

Continuing Education

The orthodontic field is continually changing and new technologies provide new and better methods for improving peoples’ smiles. At Orthodontic Partners, we are committed to being leaders in these technologies and methods. We regularly attend continuing education courses that reinforce fundamental orthodontic principles and keep us abreast of new emerging technologies.

In the Practice

My favorite part of coming to work is interacting with patients and their families. I love seeing the confidence that comes to children and adults as they are rewarded with a new and improved smile. It’s fun to get to know these kids and see them grow throughout the process. I work with an amazing group of skilled and motivated staff who work hard to make sure our patients have the best orthodontic experience possible.

The use of technology in the office helps us treat patients more efficiently, comfortably and esthetically. Invisalign and ceramic brackets provide esthetic options for patients without compromising quality of care. Suresmile technology helps provide more accurate and detailed finishes in fewer appointments and less overall time. Intraoral scanners eliminate the need for many of our impressions, providing a more comfortable experience for patients. All of these technologies make it fun to come to work each day!

Family Life

Family is the most important part of my life and my greatest source of happiness. My wife, Sarah, and I have four children; Annie, Leah, James and Kate. We love to travel and visit family as much as possible, but when we’re home you’ll most likely find us up at the lake in the summer, on the slopes in the winter, or at our children’s various sporting events and performances all year round. I love photography and videography, which means all of these family activities are always thoroughly documented. I also love music and enjoy playing the piano and guitar.

Brent Corbridge, DMD, MSD

dr-brent-corbridgeOrthodontics is my passion. I am sure I picked the best profession in the world. It is such a privilege to work with the team I do, and to work with the patients I do, to create the best smiles in the country.

Education

As a native of Sparks, I graduated from Sparks High School before receiving my Bachelor of Science degree from Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. In 1993, I earned my dental degree from Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, OR and later completed my orthodontic training in St. Louis, Missouri.

Continuing Education

As part of my continuing education, I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Northern Nevada Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry and the Schulman Study Group, which is an exclusive group of 150 orthodontists across the nation, committed to sharing ideas in order to provide the best, most cutting edge treatments to their patients. To stay abreast of the most current orthodontic procedures, I also attend national and local study clubs and ongoing continuing education conferences.

In the Practice

I’ve wanted to be an orthodontist since I was a teenager. I absolutely love working with patients and their families! Even after 19 years of producing great smiles, it is still so cool to see the final results. I love to get to know new people and it is always a kick to see what people have been up too. I love to kid around and what I also love is most people like to kid around too.

Our team absolutely loves what they are doing and it shows. We always have fun with our patients. We can’t wait for you to be a part of it!

Family Life

My wife Andrea and I have been married for almost 29 years, and have four beautiful daughters and two granddaughters. My claim to fame is that I go to work with 17 women every day and come home to a house full of women! Even our Yorkie dog, weighing in at about 7 pounds, is female.

In my spare time, I love to road bike, golf, hunt, shoot and travel with my family. We are very involved at our church and I teach seminary each week to teens. I also try to work out every single day, mostly so I can eat more!
