Dr. Timothy J. Bunnell, DDS
Dr. Timothy J. Bunnell was born and raised in Chesterfield, Missouri. At age 19, TJ had the opportunity to serve a two-year mission for his church and was called to serve in Northern California. It was at that time that his love of California and its people began. After serving as a missionary, he continued his education at Brigham Young University – Idaho, where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in Business Management. While pursuing his degree, he also met his future wife, Ansley.
TJ completed his dental school training at the University of Missouri – Kansas City. During his time there, he focused on and gained additional training in oral surgery procedures. In his final year of dental school, he was accepted into the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training program at Brookdale Hospital Medical Center, a level I trauma center in New York City. This opportunity allowed him to gain additional experience in anesthesia and facial trauma & reconstruction, as well as extensive exposure to dentoalveolar surgery, dental implants, orthognathic surgery, oral & facial pathology, and TMJ surgery.
Since their marriage, TJ and Ansley have added four children to their family. Their sons enjoy sports and being outdoors, while their daughter loves dance and gymnastics. As a family, they are enjoying their new adventure in the valley and looking forward to making it a permanent home.
