    Dr. Andrew Branton



    Dr. Andrew Branton was born and raised in the Lehigh Valley. He completed his bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Virginia Tech University.

    After completing his bachelor’s degree, he attended The Norwegian School of Economics in Bergen, Norway. Andrew worked in insurance and investment sales for a financial planning firm for a year before deciding to make his career change to dentistry.

    After speaking with his father (a dentist of 30+ years) about his frustrations in investment sales, his father suggested he should go to dental school. He laughed off the suggestion at first, but that simple comment planted a seed in his head. He had always loved working with his hands and had thrived in his science classes in high school. After a month of thinking it over and researching what he would have to do to apply to dental school, he decided to quit his job and return to school. Four years later, Andrew graduated from Temple University School of Dentistry and started his dental career.

    Andrew has loved every minute of being a dentist. He is anxiously waiting to meet everyone. He strives to provide his patients with the best dental care and experience they deserve. Andrew’s continued goal is to keep up with all aspects of dentistry. He has completed comprehensive courses in implant placement/restoration at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine and IV sedation at Duquesne University Pharmacy School.

    In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, skiing, hiking, swimming, playing guitar, listening to music and cooking.
