Brandon G. Coleman, D.D.S., M.S.
Periodontist Winchester VA
Dr. Brandon Coleman is a native Texan, and is therefore not equipped to handle winters in Winchester. He graduated with honors from Rice University in Houston, and Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Coleman then joined the Army, completing his periodontics residency at Fort Gordon, Georgia. He also earned a Master’s degree in Oral Biology at the Medical College of Georgia. Dr. Coleman served as the chief of Periodontics for the Fort Polk DENTAC in Louisiana, providing full service periodontal and implant care to thousands of Soldiers. He achieved Diplomate status in the American Board of Periodontology in 2011. Board certification in periodontics and implantology is the highest level of achievement for a periodontist.
Dr. Coleman was selected to return to the Army’s residency program as the youngest staff officer in the program’s history (a position also held by Dr. Hanson). Dr. Coleman was a full-time assistant professor for a five year period: publishing, conducting clinical research, and teaching. Dr. Coleman received the AAP Outstanding Educator Award and an AAP ITL Teaching Scholarship. He served as the course director for the Army’s IV (moderate) sedation course. He also maintained a limited clinical practice in South Carolina during that time. Dr. Coleman received several awards during his military career, including selection as an AMEDD “Iron Major.” He also completed military education through the Command and General Staff Course. In 2018, Dr. Coleman transitioned from full-time active duty to the Army Reserves in the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He joined a practice in Atlanta where he practiced all aspects of periodontics and implant care. He continued his passion for teaching by volunteering to teach in the Department of Veteran’s Affairs residency program in Georgia. Working with military servicemembers, past and present, was an incredible experience, and one Brandon is profoundly grateful to have had.
Throughout his career, he has been a prolific educator, lecturing at multiple national meetings across the country. He was also invited to present to the Canadian military. He has published several articles in peer-reviewed dental journals, one of which was selected by the editor-in-chief as one of the top articles of the year for that journal. Dr. Coleman is continuing his mission to blend education with clinical experience by running the Shenandoah Valley Study Club. He is looking forward to continuing to serve the Winchester community. Dr. Coleman and his wife, Jen, have too many kids and pets to have free time. If he did have free time, he should spend it learning to drive in the snow.
