About Our Practice


Founded in 1981 by Dr. Deana Paulsen Bender, our practice has been an integral part of the business district of downtown Kansas City, Missouri for over 35 years. Dr. Bruso joined the office in 1992, where he and Dr. Bender practiced successfully together for 10 years until Dr. Bender’s retirement in 2002. At that time, Dr. Bruso became the sole proprietor of the practice and has enjoyed being a part of the revitalization of the downtown community. In 2012, a year long expansion and entire facility upgrade was completed. The new space allows Dr. Bruso and his staff to provide patients with the highest quality care in a comfortable, state of the art clinical setting.


OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE THE HIGHEST QUALITY DENTAL CARE customized to meet each patient’s individual needs.
