Dr. Bertrand Bonnick has become a leading North Carolina dentist, not just because of the wide range of expert services he provides, but because he gives each patient the special care and attention they deserve. Patients come to Dr. Bonnick from across the state because of the exceptional and compassionate care he provides.
Dr. Bonnick has over 30 years of dental experience in practices ranging from general to sedation dentistry.
In 2000, after honeymooning with his wife in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, Dr. Bertrand Bonnick fell in love with North Carolina, and decided to relocate to the Triad to raise his family. After 18 years of practicing in New York, Dr. Bonnick bought the practice of Dr. Robert Kriegsman (established in Greensboro since 1962) and started a family general dentistry practice in Greensboro in March of 2004.
In November of 2004, Dr. Bonnick completed the Medical College of Georgia’s one-year Maxicourse program on dental implantology and became the first dentist in Guilford County to own the Simplant software for virtual implant surgery. Virtual surgery allows the patient and doctor to use a CT scan on a computer to simulate the actual surgery to determine whether the patient is a good candidate for dental implants or if additional grafting of bone would be needed to place implants.
Dr. Bonnick believes that the key to maintaining his position as one of the best dentists in North Carolina is his lifelong commitment to learning and continuing education. By 1992, he had completed over 500 credits of continuing education as well as passing an extensive written examination on all areas of dentistry and was recognized with the Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (F.A.G.D.).
In 1982, Dr. Bertrand Bonnick graduated from the State University of New York-Albany cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and a combined minor in mathematics and physics. From there, he attended the University of Maryland Dental School (the world’s first dental college), graduating in 1986, and was selected as a Who’s Who Scholar for academic achievement and student government leadership.
Knowing that school for dentists could provide only limited experiences, Dr. Bonnick competed for and earned a position in advanced training at Long Island Jewish Hospital Medical Center-QHC. This training included a rotation in the Department of Anesthesiology where he provided sedation for 6-10 patients per day.
After completing his residency program, Dr. Bonnick stayed for a second year of residency, serving as the Chief Resident. He went on to remain as an instructor in the program for 10 years and was voted Instructor of the Year in 1991 by the dentists he taught in the post-graduate dental program. Despite his many accolades, Dr. Bonnick considers this one of his proudest achievements.
Over his career so far, Dr. Bonnick has achieved Master in the Academy of General Dentistry with over 1100 hours of continuing education. Also became the first North Carolina dentist awarded the Diplomate in the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation.
Dr. Bonnick maintains membership in a number of dental organizations, including the North Carolina Dental Society, the Dental Implant Association of North Carolina, and Diplomate of Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation.
