Meet Our Oral Surgeon

asheville nc oral surgeon matthew bronkOral Surgeon, Matthew Bronk, DMD

Dr. Matthew Bronk was born in Florida as the son of a Navy A6 pilot. He was raised in Maryland and joined the United States Marine Corp after high school, where he served four years. While in the Marines, he competed for the All-Marine Wrestling Team for several years, before leaving the Marines to attend college and dental school. After dental school, Dr. Bronk served over 20 years in the United States Air Force, and is proud of the surgical services he provided to men and women in the US military. He adheres to the Air Force core values of ‘”integrity, service before self, and excellence in all you do” in all aspects of his life. After retiring from military service, Dr. Bronk and his wife, Dr. Renee Carlson – also with TS Orthodontics & Dental Specialists – decided to settle to North Carolina having spent nearly two decades vacationing in the state’s western mountains.


Dr. Bronk received his bachelor’s degree from Southwest Missouri State University and then attended the Medical University of South Carolina for dental school. After graduating, his military esprit de corps drew him back and he joined the Air Force Dental Corps. While in the Air Force, Dr. Bronk was deployed to Afghanistan serving the surgical needs of America’s uniformed service men and women, and he also went on a humanitarian mission to Peru!

After several years as a general dentist, Dr. Bronk pursued his love of surgery and went on to complete a residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Wayne State University School of Medicine/Detroit Medical Center in Michigan. As a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon, his areas of expertise include wisdom teeth removal, orthognathic surgery, dental implantology, and general anesthesia.


    • Diplomate, American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons
    • Fellow, American College of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons
    • American Society of Dental Anesthesia
    • American College of Military Surgeons
    • Staff Surgeon, Carolina’s Medical Center, and University


Dr. Bronk is married to Dr. Renee Carlson and they have one son, Griffin. They met in New Orleans early in their military careers and have since worked together in the same clinics all over the United States. Together, they have completed over 300 life-changing orthognathic surgical cases.

Dr. Bronk’s hobbies are road biking, kayaking, scuba diving, hiking, backpacking, sprint triathlons, outdoor photography, and running 5Ks with his family, accompanied by their boxer, Mojo.
