Dr. Bryan Fletcher
Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist
Dr. Fletcher grew up in Auburn, Washington. He spent many nights going to work with his dad, an ER doctor and knew that one day he wanted to help people like his dad did. It wasn’t until Dr. Fletcher got braces that he realized he wanted to go to dental school someday. In high school, he was fortunate enough to go on several mission trips to Central and South America to help build schools. Each trip opened his eyes to the world around him and the wonderful people he met, many of whom were the kids who would soon attend the schools he was helping build. He also spent several summers teaching windsurfing to kids at a youth camp. These experiences led him to want to work with kids for the rest of his life.
Dr. Fletcher got his bachelor’s degree in business with a minor in chemistry from Walla Walla University, graduating summa cum laude. He then went on to graduate with distinction from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. During his time at LLU, he was able to get an early rotation in the pediatric dental department and found his calling. He spent much of his free time there and arranged for as many rotations in the pediatric department as possible. He applied to the Loma Linda University Pediatric Residency program and was accepted. He completed two years of extensive training at the University’s pediatric clinic as well as treating kids receiving medical care at Loma Linda University’s Children’s Hospital. There were many late-night trips to the ER department to treat dental traumas, surgical cases at the hospital, and treating medically compromised children staying at the hospital.
Dr. Fletcher is passionate about oral health and compassionate care for kids. He loves working with patients and parents to find a prevention plan that works best for them and their needs. And if there is a cavity or treatment needed, he wants to make sure that both the child and the parent are comfortable with the treatment plan and happy with the results. Helping kids have great experiences at the dentist is Dr. Fletcher’s favorite part of his job. His hope is that every patient that comes to Children’s Dentistry Northwest will love it so much that they will look forward to their next trip to the dentist. His goal is for Children’s Dentistry Northwest to be each patient’s happy dental home.
