Following this, Dr. Breig returned to dentistry to refine his skills in full-scope Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, including complex dental extractions, dental implant surgery, and general anesthesia. During his final year of training, he served as Chief Resident under nationally renowned surgeons.

Dr. Benjamin Zuniga

You might say surgery runs in the family. I saw my first oral surgery while joining my dad as a youth providing much needed care on a humanitarian trip where he and other dental professionals worked in an underserved population. I furthered that education as I worked in his office as an assistant throughout high-school and college.

As I pursued my degree at Arizona State University, it became clear to me that I wanted to join the dental profession as an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. I worked hard to graduate "Summa Cum Laude" (with highest honor) and applied to dental school. My studies took me, my wife, and our small family to California where I attended The University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry.

I was privileged to thrive there under wonderful instruction from mentors who prepared me for and helped me achieve the difficult task of matching to an excellent resident training program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Yale New-Haven Hospital in New Haven, Connecticut. Training was challenging, and the growth was immense for me and for my young family on the East Coast.

It was definitely worth the time and effort as it prepared me for the surgical career I plan to build throughout the rest of my life. I am committed to providing top-tier dental implant care to my patients while enjoying the relationships I build along the way. My wife and I enjoy raising our now large family of 7 children here in Arizona where we love sports, outdoor adventures, taking care of our pets, and enjoy the beautiful sunsets
