Dr. Bronsky has been a Volunteer Attending (Teaching) Doctor in the Department of Surgery, Division of Dentistry, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at The New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medical Center for over 20 years. His duties have included teaching General Practice Dental Residents and Oral Surgery Residents the role, practice, and function of orthodontic therapy, specifically as it relates to treatment of complex cases requiring a combination of orthodontics and orthognathic surgery to correct severe deformities of the face, jaws, and teeth. For Dr. Bronsky, teaching is a “labor of love” carried with him from his days at the “Dentofacial Deformities Center” at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill during his orthodontic residency. It is also a way to “give back” to the dental community and the New York based patients in need of these complex services.
Dr. Bronsky has also volunteered his time and expertise as a member of the Dentofacial Deformities Teams at Mount Sinai Medical Center, Beth Israel Medical Center, St. Lukes/Roosevelt Hospital Center, and The Elmhurst Hospital Center. Dr. Bronsky was the Director of the Dentofacial Deformities Program at Beth Israel Medical Center until the hospital closed the Dental Department.
Drs. Bronsky and Matos comprise the Orthodontic Team participating in The New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medical Center Dentofacial Deformities Program. Dr. Samuel Rhee, a Plastic Surgeon and Dentofacial Deformities Specialist has created this program by assembling a team of committed practitioners in the fields of Plastic Surgery, Neurology, Otorhinolaryngology (ENT), Medical Genetics, Pediatric Medicine, Pediatric Dentistry, Orthodontics, Speech, Language, and Hearing Specialists, and Social Workers to provide care to a group of patients presenting with the most severe developmental facial problems that exist. (Dr. Bronsky and Dr. Matos treat many of these patients pro bono in their practice—using their skills to help these patients attain more normal physiologic function and psychosocial acceptance.)
Dr. Bronsky has been a Voluntary Emergency Medical Practitioner in The New York Medical Reserve Corps since the days immediately following the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington on 09/11/2001. The Bureau of Emergency Management continually provides training courses in all aspects of Emergency Management and Dr. Bronsky has maintained his commitment as a “First Responder” for the Bureau. Dr. Bronsky feels that it is his duty to help protect the public whenever “called up” to do so though he hopes that the opportunity never arises again!!
