Our Everett family dental center has been open since 1949 beginning with Dr. Bill Brust followed by his son, Dr. W. Pat Brust and now Dr. Aaron Wright. We have a legacy of excellent dental care in the Everett community. We even have worked on some of our original patient's great grandchildren! We are an established dental office who cares about the individuals in our community and creating an atmosphere of trust.
Dr. Aaron Wright
Dr. Aaron Wright was born in Mexico City and raised in Bountiful, Utah. Dr. Wright graduated in Medical Biology from the University of Utah and then went to dental school at the University of Kentucky, graduating in 2004. He has practiced general family dentistry since then and enjoys seeing all types of patients - from the kids with a few teeth to their grandparents - and everything in between. He also spent over four years working on severely disabled patients in his spare hours. Dr. Wright loves traveling and has spent time in Australia and Israel. Dr. Wright married his high school sweetheart, Andrea, and they have energetic three sons. They like to spend time as a family going to sporting events, chasing their dog Shadow, playing tennis and exploring the outdoors.
Dr. Wright also is an Eagle Scout and currently works with the Adventure scouts in his neighborhood. When asked by one of the boys about his survival skills Dr. Wright jokingly replied, "I could do a root canal with a pine needle and some chamomile tea."
Dr. Wright is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association and the Snohomish County Dental Society. He remains active in continuing education courses and clinical workshops that focus on the latest techniques of the highest quality restorative and cosmetic treatment available.
Dr. W. Pat Brust
Dr. Pat Brust has worked as a dentist in the Everett community for 35 years and has enjoyed every minute of it. He has created a legacy of trust with his patients. He views his patients "as long term friends" who he gets to see every six months and is passionate about improving the oral health in the community. He prides himself in taking good care of the patient and says the "relationship with the patients is what makes dentistry worthwhile." To many he is known as "painless Pat" for his excellent injection skills. Dr. Pat has mastered the painless injection and found that many of his young patients would sometimes not even realize they had received an injection. He especially enjoys working with children.
He met his wife, Pam, while in school in Nebraska and together they have two children and two grandchildren. Pam worked in the dental office for most years and our patients were sad to see her retire in December of 2010. Dr. Pat and Pam love spending time together and try to get as much grandparent time in as possible. They enjoy being out on Whidbey Island with their family and friends.
Dr. Pat completed his undergraduate and dental degree at Creighton University. He has stayed very active in the dental community by serving on many committees and boards in the Washington State Dental Association and the Snohomish County Dental Society to improve the dental industry in Washington. He is a community advocate for oral health and served on the Washington Dental Service as a trustee for 30 years.
When Dr. Pat is not working, he loves to fish and spend time with his family. The Brusts are a great part of the Everett community, and Dr. Pat is loved by his patients.

She and Cyndi have worked together as hygienists for many years in our office and have a great rapport . Kristie and her husband have one son and two daughters.
