Meet the Doctor
Meet San Antonio Implant Dentist – Dr. Bernard Rust - Texas Super Dentist
Dr. Bernard Rust has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years. He received his undergraduate degree from St. Mary's University in San Antonio and also graduated from the St. Louis University School of Dentistry.
Upon graduation from dental school, Dr. Rust began practicing in Irving, Texas. During his 20 year stay in the Dallas area, he also taught endodontics at the Baylor School of Dentistry.
Dr. Rust spent 10 years in west Texas as Sonora's only dentist. While pursuing a fellowship in implantology at UTHSCSA's dental school, he and his wife Mary fell in love with San Antonio. They moved to the Alamo City in 1997 and Dr. Rust started a new practice at the present Hwy 281 and Bitters location.
Dr. Rust received his Mastership into the Academy of General Dentistry July 19, 2008. This is not easily attained. It takes extreme dedication to the profession. In the 50+ year history of the Academy of General Dentistry under 3500 dentists nationwide and in Canada, have achieved this award. This is less than 2% of all dentists nationwide. To attain Mastership, members must first receive their Fellowship. It takes years of continuing education, over 1100 approved credits. In addition, 400 hours of the required credit must be in participation courses. Dr. Rust will continue to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry. He will always strive to learn so that he can give his patients the very best that dentistry has to offer. As the numbers show, not very many dentists have Dr. Rust's enthusiasm for their profession. Providing excellent patient care in the most comfortable environment. That is what Dr. Rust can and will provide for all of his patients.
Dr. Rust is listed in San Antonio Monthly Magazine as one of San Antonio's Top Dentists. He was nominated as 2010 Texas Dentist of the Year by his peers in the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Rust has also been listed in Texas Monthly as a Texas Super Dentist every year from 2010 - 2016.
