Bruce R. Hutchison, DDS

Dr. Bruce Hutchison graduated from Georgetown University School of Dentistry in 1981., after completing a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Rochester “Approaching Dentistry with an engineering background is a great fit.” Dr. Hutchison opened his dental practice in Centreville in August 1982 and it has continued to grow to now include four dentists and an amazing staff. “My philosophy has always been to do the right thing for the right reason every single day. That philosophy has allowed the practice to grow and to attract the very best people. We have an excellent staff who, together, allow us to treat our patients with the integrity, great dental care and the compassion they deserve. We want patients to feel welcome and relaxed, like they are part of our family.”

Dr. Hutchison lives in Centreville with his wife Nancy. Their three grown children who all live in Northern Virginia. He is very involved with his professional organization, the American Dental Association, having served as Speaker of the House and then President of the Virginia Dental Association, Delegate or Alternate Delegate to the ADA House of Delegates for over 20 years, the ADA Council on Ethics, Bylaws and Judicial Affairs, and the American Dental Political Action Committee, serving as it’s Chair 2015-2016. Dr. Hutchison remains involved in the political process of advocating for the future of the dental profession. “I chose to get involved and make a difference for myself, my patients and the future of this great profession for those who follow me. Like it or not, our legislators make all the rules, and if you aren’t involved, you simply get what they hand out. I want to make a difference.”

Dr. Hutchison believes strongly in continuing his education to keep up with current technology and advances in dentistry. He has attained the level of Master in the Academy of General Dentistry and is the recipient of the VDA Emanuel Michaels Award, the highest award given to a member of the Virginia Dental Association. He volunteers his time to give back to his community by working at the Northern Virginia Dental Clinic, the VDA Missions of Mercy Projects, and treating a group of American Indians from Virginia (the Mattapponi) on a pro bono basis. For those to whom much is given, much is expected. “I feel so blessed in my life and feel the need to help whenever I can.”
