Kevin A. Brucker, DMD
I believe that our patients are part of my extended family, and I treat them as such. From making children comfortable and happy to a total makeover for an adult who wants a better, healthier smile, every customer deserves the highest quality of treatment. We have a small town heart with all the offerings of a big city dental practice.Education and continuing education
- MacMurray College, Jacksonville, IL – Bachelor of Science
- Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine – Doctorate of Dental Medicine
New advances and better technology are constantly entering the field of dentistry. My team and I take education seriously, and we are constantly attending lectures and conferences. We have garnered renown for our research in occlusion, joint stability, and myofascial pain control. I am active with the Dawson Academy, which is dedicated to educating dentists in the field on the skills necessary for a successful practice.In the office
My profession gives me a unique opportunity to improve both a patient’s quality of life and self-esteem. Every day brings a new set of challenges, and I enjoy approaching them head on to give our patients the best smile possible. I make sure they are comfortable and happy with their treatment. It is so rewarding to catch up on the news in their lives and the fun they bring to our office.At home and in the community
I am a lifelong resident of Melvin, which is only ten minutes from my practice. I currently live two blocks from my childhood home. I have been married to my wife, Melody, for 15 years. Together we have two children: our son, Cullen, and our daughter, Keegan. As most patients can see when they walk in, I am obsessed with motorcycles. I love racing and riding year round. When I am not racing, I spend a lot of time outdoors, camping, shooting, and working on cars. In addition, I am a life long member of St. Peter's Free Lutheran Church of Melvin and a member of the church council.
The community I live in is as much a part of me as I am of it. I am deeply attached to my neighbors and friends, and it is only right to give back to the community. I am a Past President of the Gibson City Rotary Club and the Ford-Iroquois Counties Board of Health. I am also a volunteer fireman for the Melvin Fire Department.
