Charles D. Brodsky
Orthodontics is more than just my profession - it's my joy, my passion, and my unique opportunity to do what I truly love. My father and partner, Dr. Joel Brodsky, has been an inspiration, practicing orthodontics for over 40 years. Growing up in the heart of his practice, I was captivated by the world of orthodontics from a young age.
Incredibly, I've been part of this office since I was just five years old. So, becoming an orthodontist wasn't just a career choice, it was the realization of a lifelong dream. Every day, I have the privilege of helping people achieve the smiles they've always envisioned, and in doing so, I'm living my dream that began in my childhood. I'm profoundly grateful to my patients and my family for helping me reach this point.
I have a deep appreciation for the natural smile, or as we like to call it, the 'Brodsky Smile'. Everyone possesses one, and my mission is to highlight and enhance these natural smiles, making them as stunning as possible.
We're all unique, but a radiant smile is a universal language. It bridges gaps, fosters relationships, and brings joy. My goal? To make people smile!
What excites me the most is crafting a personalized experience for each of my patients. I believe in dedicating ample time during consultations to thoroughly educate my patients about their orthodontic issues and the treatment options at their disposal.
My unwavering commitment to every detail of the treatment process ensures that patients are satisfied with every facet of their orthodontic journey.
Education & Continuing Education
I grew up locally in Long Beach and graduated from Los Alamitos High School in 1996. Following high school, I attended the University of the Pacific in Stockton.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Applied Sciences from UOP in 1999 after only three years. Upon graduating, I moved to San Francisco, where I attended UOP Dental School and earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2002 in only three years.
After six years of hard-core studying and finishing at the top of my class, I was ready for a new experience.
Following dental school, I moved to Massachusetts, where I completed my residency in orthodontics at Boston University School of Dental Medicine. I received a specialty certificate in orthodontics as well as a Master of Science in Dentistry degree in 2005.
Boston was a nice change of pace, but after three mostly cold years, I decided the warm weather of California was calling me home. While training in Boston, I received extensive training and certification in Invisalign®, tissue management with lasers, as well as the placement and utilization of orthodontic mini-screw implants (TADs).
The orthodontists who are trained at Boston University are taught to treat the most complicated of orthodontic malocclusions, including patients who need orthognathic jaw surgery in conjunction with orthodontics.
I’m a curious person by nature. I constantly think about how I treat my patients and if there’s a better way to achieve great smiles.
While I always have my father to help show me the way, I’m an avid attendee of continuing education courses. I believe learning doesn’t stop at residency and if anything, I’m learning more now than I did in school.
I believe technology and new techniques continue to push orthodontics to new levels and I enjoy learning and implementing new things in our practice. Because of this, our practice has joined the Schulman Study Group, a group composed of the top orthodontic specialists nationally who are committed to excellence through sharing forward-thinking ideas.
Outside the Office
My beautiful wife, Vicky and I love being a part of this community. Everyone has been so supportive and helpful with raising our two boys, Jack and Blake.
While we call Huntington Beach our home, most of our day-to-day activities and our friends are in Long Beach. Life with two growing boys is both busy and eventful, and we are always doing activities together. We recently joined the Long Beach Yacht Club as our boys are avid yachtsmen and sail sailboats competitively on the race team.
I love both being in and on the water with my children. I also enjoy fishing and traveling in my spare time.
