Meet Dr. Leung
Hi! I am Dr. Brian Leung. Orthodontics is a specialty in dentistry that requires knowledge in a wide variety of sciences which is why I really enjoy this profession. I prepared for my profession by first obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University in mechanical engineering and then a Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine. I received my orthodontic specialty training at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
My background in mechanical engineering enables me to have a clear understanding of all types of mechanics associated with tooth movement. As a result, I am able to treatment plan the most efficient and effective orthodontic procedures for my patients.
A unique aspect of my advanced orthodontic training is that while many orthodontist spend two years studying orthodontics in a dental school setting, I attended a three year, hospital based residency program at on of the country’s top hospitals, Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The fact that I am a hospital trained orthodontist gives me the skills to treat even the most complex orthodontic problems.
I truly enjoy being in private practice and being owner of Old Bridge Orthodontics and right from the start, I envisioned a family friendly practice in which all my patients and their family members feel welcomed. From the very first consultation to the office visits, I find joy in watching each of my patients grow and change through their treatment process and am proud to consider them and my wonderful team members a part of the Old Bridge Orthodontics family.
I believe that you can never stop learning and I always strive to provide excellence in orthodontics. I am an active member of several professional organizations including the American Association of Orthodontists, Middle Atlantic Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, New Jersey Dental Association, and the Middlesex County Dental Society. I attends various continuing education courses and I am a top Invisalign provider in the area. I am honored to be invited to attend many exclusive, invitation only continuing education courses across the country where I get the chance to learn the newest and latest in orthodontic technology and techniques alongside other like minded orthodontists in the world.
Outside of my life at Old Bridge Orthodontics, I am married to my high school sweetheart. Together we have a dog whom we adopted at the Nashville Humane Society. My wife and I recently found new joy and love in being new parents to a little boy. Together as a family, we enjoy traveling, spending quality time with friends and family, trying new foods and snowboarding. Now that my son can walk, I am looking forward to teaching him to be a snowboarder or skiier very soon. When I am not busy being an orthodontist and dad, I try to sneak in time to ride on my Peloton indoor bike, tinker on my computers, or catching up on my favorite shows.
