EAS­TON — Dr. Bran­don Ber­man has joined Eas­ton Fam­ily Den­tal.

“When I was younger, my un­cle was a gen­eral dentist, so I kind of had an in­ter­est in it since then,” Ber­man said. “I went to watch him work a lit­tle bit to see that it is some­thing en­joy­able. I also had good men­tors in high school that steered me to­wards it, and I just got re­ally lucky that I like it and en­joy it, and it fell right into my lap.”

Ber­man be­gan prac­tic­ing at Eas­ton Fam­ily Den­tal in June.

Ber­man earned his un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree in neu­ro­bi­ol­ogy and phys­i­ol­ogy from Univer­sity of Mary­land, Col­lege Park, and re­ceived his Doc­tor of Den­tal Surgery de­gree from Howard Univer­sity Col­lege of Den­tistry, grad­u­at­ing first in his class in 2013. He went on to at­tend a gen­eral prac­tice res­i­dency at the renowned Al­bert Ein­stein Med­i­cal Cen­ter.

Af­ter fin­ish­ing school, he started prac­tic­ing in Mont­gomery County but felt like he wanted a change.

“My wife is orig­i­nally from Cor­dova, so I’ve been com­ing here, and it’s a lot more en­joy­able,” Ber­man said. “Life-work bal­ance is a lot more in tune with things that I can re­lax with.”

When­ever Ber­man used to cross over the Bay Bridge, he said his blood pres­sure would go down.

“Peo­ple are nicer over here, and the place is more re­laxed. You can es­tab­lish a bet­ter re­la­tion­ship with some­one be­cause ev­ery­one knows each other in the com­mu­nity,” Ber­man said. “Cor­dova is a ver y small town, and in Eas­ton, there is a lot more ac­tiv­i­ties over here, and it’s a big­ger com­mu­nity.”

So far, Ber­man’s ex­pe­ri­ence liv­ing and work­ing on the East­ern Shore has been a pos­i­tive one.

“We have seen prob­a­bly 100 peo­ple over the past four weeks, so it’s been a pretty good ex­pe­ri­ence so far,” Ber­man said. “Ev­ery­body seems to like me, so it’s mainly just meet­ing peo­ple, es­tab­lish­ing re­la­tion­ships, be­cause we are here for the long haul.”

Eas­ton Fam­ily Den­tal is lo­cated at 127 N. West St. in Eas­ton. The prac­tice may be reached by call­ing 410-820-0230, on­line at http://www.eas­ton-fam­i­ly­den­tal.com and on Face­book at https://www.face­book. com/pages/biz/top­ic_­doc­tor-eas­ton/ Eas­ton-Fam­ily-Den­tal-208901139710913.
