| Albert R. Bird, DDS
grew up in Memphis, Tennessee. His positive experience as a teenage dental patient at the dental school in that city inspired him to become a dentist. He graduated from the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry in 1974. Following two years in the Army Dental Corps at Fort Lewis, he decided to remain with his young family in the Pacific Northwest, entering private practice in 1976. His practice grew on his reputation for skillful, compassionate, and gentle care. For forty years, Dr. Bird has been active in his professional community, serving as president of the Pierce County Dental Society and as a volunteer dentist in various organizations in Washington, as well as Guatemala and Ecuador.
Dr. Bird remains involved in aspects of the practice that involve his special interest and expertise.
He enjoys travel, camping, learning about the natural world, and being with his family of five children and seven grandchildren.
