Brian P. Loftus, DMD, MSD
It is such an unbelievable feeling to transform a patient’s smile. The benefits of excellent orthodontic care are astounding, both in its ability to improve physical health and boost confidence and esteem, and I daily renew my commitment to provide the utmost in orthodontics. Working with our children has been so gratifying, and I absolutely love seeing a child who is barely able to smile at his or her first visit because of self-consciousness become transformed into a mature and confident young adult who cannot stop showing off a brand new smile.
Education and Continuing Education
I attended the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania to complete a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring both in Biology and Philosophy, in 1992. After, I headed to Philadelphia to Temple University, to receive my Doctorate of Medicine in Dentistry in 1996. I then traveled to the west coast and received my Master of Science in Dentistry degree and certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Washington in Seattle, in 1998. I am board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics.
Although I received an incredible formal education and it has been completed for sometime, my commitment to constantly continuing my knowledge and expertise within the orthodontic field is one of my most important priorities. Each year, I attend several continuing education meetings on the national, regional, and local levels. I understand how important it is for the benefit of my patients that I stay as current as possible with the latest and most proven trends, technologies, and techniques in orthodontics. By investing myself in practicing nothing but the most sound and tested treatments available, I am able to provide my patients only the most rewarding and beneficial care.
Through collaboration and interaction with professional colleagues, I am further given opportunities to stay entirely current on the rapid developments within the orthodontic field. For this reason, I hold active membership in several professional affiliations, including:
- American Association of Orthodontists
- American Dental Association
- American Board of Orthodontics, Board Certified
- College of Diplomates of American Board of Orthodontics
- Pennsylvania Dental Association
- Lehigh Valley Society of Orthodontists, Member and Past President
- Lehigh Valley Study Club, Member and Past President
- St. Luke’s General Practice Residency, Attending Faculty
I grew up in Scranton and have loved calling the Lower Nazareth Township home since 2004. I have been married to my lovely wife, Alisa, since 1994, and we have two amazing children. Brandon loves ice hockey and golf, while Amelia enjoys ice hockey and field hockey.
I enjoy nothing more than spending time with my family. We always have dinner together, and we love to eat, whether it be a home cooked dish, a backyard barbeque, or a meal at our favorite Japanese restaurant. When I have free time, I enjoy golfing, although you wouldn’t know it by looking at my handicap! My son and I have also made it a mission to try to visit as many different baseball stadiums as we can because it is our goal to see every one of them.
