Dr. Bedont's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bedont "Dr. Curtis Bedont is a board certified specialist in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics and has been providing comprehensive orthodontic care since 2005. He received his Bachelors of Science degree at BYU and then went on to receive his dental education at Oregon Health Sciences University, graduating in 2001. While in dental school he was awarded the Army Health Professions Scholarship. Eager to learn more and advance his understanding of dental health, he enrolled in an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Program following dental school. While attending this program Dr. Bedont was provided the opportunity to participate in orthodontic treatment, and from this experience he knew that this is what he wanted to do. The transformation and change that occur during orthodontic treatment and the joy in the smiles of his patients was enough for Dr. Bedont to know that orthodontics was his future. Dr. Bedont entered the military after dental school and was lucky enough to get his first assignment to Hawaii at Schofield Barracks. While serving in Hawaii he deployed to Iraq in 2004 as a general dentist serving in several locations, including a few months at the infamous Abu Ghraib Prison. After practicing four years as a general dentist he began his orthodontic residency in Texas at the prestigious Tri-Service Orthodontic Residency Program at Wilford Hall Medical Center and received board certification by the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO). Interestingly, all orthodontists must be licensed to practice, but only 1 in 3 orthodontists have continued on to complete Board Certification. Dr. Bedont completed his last tour of duty at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina as an orthodontist where he was on the teaching staff for the AEGD Residency, teaching orthodontics to general dentistry residents. He really enjoyed teaching and found it very rewarding to see the residents increase in knowledge during their program. He was also a member of the Orthognathic Board at Womack Army Medical Center, meeting twice a month with the oral surgery staff and residents to discuss his patients requiring orthognathic surgery. Dr. Bedont truly enjoyed his nine years of military service and considers it an honor to have served his country. Dr. Bedont is a member of the American Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, Oregon Dental Association and the Multnomah Dental Society. He is also a member of the Vanguard Society of the American Association of Orthodontist Foundation. He is active in the Boy Scouts of America, Rotary Club, and his church. In his spare time Dr. Bedont enjoys boating, waterskiing, wakeboarding, racquetball, camping, hiking, and mountain biking. He is married to his wife, Jody, and they have three wonderful children, Julia, Jacob and Anna. The Bedont family has enjoyed experiencing life in different locations while Dr. Bedont received his education and served in the military, but they are happy to be able to settle down in the beautiful Northwest. Fun Facts About Dr. Bedont: He is an Eagle Scout. Pole vaulted in college at BYU. Dad was a pilot in the US Air Force, so between growing up in the Air Force and serving in the Army, he has lived in 14 different areas, including two foreign countries. (Laredo, Texas; Phillipines; Stittville, New York; Mtn. Home, Idaho; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Sumter, South Carolina; Provo, Utah; Jacksonville, Florida and surrounding areas; Beaverton, Oregon; Mililani, Hawaii; Iraq; San Antonio, Texas; Sanford, North Carolina; Camas, Washington). Served time in prison when he deployed to Iraq in 2004: he spent a few months at Abu Grhaib Prison giving dental care to soldiers and detainees. His residence during that time was a prison cell, but fortunately without the lock in place! Served a 2-year mission for his church in Florida. The name Bedont is Italian and is pronounced "be don't" (emphasis on the don't). "
