Dr. Hunt was born and raised in Mitchell, South Dakota. He earned his dental degree from the University of Minnesota in 1985 and completed specialized training in Periodontology at the Naval Dental School in Bethesda, MD in 1992. He served in the U.S. Navy for over 20 years before establishing his periodontal practice here in San Diego. He has lectured extensively in this country and abroad. He has also taught periodontics courses for residents at USC, hygienists at Loma Linda University and taught and mentored AEGD and GPR residents in the U.S. Navy. He belongs to numerous professional organizations and actively participates in continuing education to keep abreast of the latest techniques. Dr. Hunt has been Board-certified by the American Board of Periodontology as a Diplomate in Periodontics since 1995. In his never-ending mission to provide the best periodontal care possible, Dr. Brad Hunt has recently become recertified by the American Board of Periodontology. This is the second time he has undergone the recertification process, which is designed to challenge each doctor’s knowledge on past and emerging information in the field of periodontics. Becoming board certified is a completely optional credential – one that a large percentage of periodontists do not pursue or complete. Even more rare is becoming recertified at the end of every six-year period. For more information about our practice or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hunt, call our office in San Diego, CA. Dr. Hunt believes achieving board certification and successfully completing re-certification is an extremely important part of treating patients. He remains committed to continuing his education and staying up-to-date with the latest techniques. By taking these extra steps, he is able to provide the most comprehensive care and best treatment for each patient’s unique needs. For those seeking a periodontist, Dr. Hunt stresses the advantage of seeing a board certified specialist, as these individuals are dedicated to seeking the most efficient and effective ways of treating patients.

Care Philosophy

The periodontal treatment you will receive from Dr Hunt has been shown through research, and through our long term experiences with patients, to be highly effective. However, Dr Hunt believes that the patient is ultimately the most important factor influencing overall success of treatment. For maximum results to be realized, the patient must work in partnership with Dr Hunt in the process to achieve and maintain periodontal health. The patient must first become aware of factors that increase susceptibility to periodontal disease and ways to lessen their impact on their periodontal health. Some ways would be to stop smoking, to keep diabetes symptoms controlled and to eliminate excessive use of alcohol. Secondly, it is important to maintain daily plaque control. This is achieved through brushing and through the use of other homecare aids such floss, interproximal brushes and rubber tips. Most periodontal disease begins between the teeth, therefore, we will recommend hygiene aids for your oral hygiene routine.
