Dr. Susan Hagel-Bradway gerew up in the Chicago area and attended Indiana University where she received a B.S. with honors in 1980. She is a 1984 graduate of University of Mississippi School of Dentistry, graduating with OKU honors. Upon graduation, Dr. Hagel-Bradway married Dr. Steven Bradway and relocated to Buffalo, New York. Dr. Hagel-Bradway entered private practice as a general dentist. After a year in practice she chose to pursue her Endodontic certificate and Master’s degree in cell signaling and bone biology at SUNY-Buffalo. She was able to secure a full time faculty position at the dental school which enabled her to continue her research, teach and maintain an in-house private practice at the dental school. Dr. Hagel-Bradway then founded an Endodontic practice in Columbus, Ohio and went on to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. She became a consultant to Children! ’s Hospital in Columbus and served as an adjunct faculty at Ohio State University in the Pediatric Dental Department. As the Bradway family grew, the decision was made to relocate to the Pacific Northwest where Dr. Hagel-Bradway joined her husband in an endodontic/periodontal practice in Aberdeen, Washington. In 2001 the doctors relocated to Tacoma, Washington where they continue to practice. Three years ago they expanded their practice locations to a second office in Puyallup, Washington and currently share their time between the two offices. The opportunity to practice two disciplines has allowed each of the doctors to draw on the expertise of the other and bring that view to assisting their referrals and patients.
Dr. Hagel-Bradway and her husband enjoy living in the Pacific Northwest and the opportunities it offers culturally, intelligently and with regard to entertainment of the great outdoors. Both doctors enjoy cycling and finished the Seattle to Portland bicycle ride in 2010. Their two children are currently attending college.
