About Us

Alan Brunelli, D.D.S.

Sabal Dental Rockdale is thrilled to announce that we have welcomed Dr. Alan Brunelli to our practice.

Dr. Brunelli possesses the highest level of qualifications and is highly skilled in all phases of general dentistry, including oral surgery, cosmetic dentistry, root canal treatment, orthodontics, and implant restoration, and has a warm and compassionate chair-side manner that puts patients at ease. Dr. Brunelli brings 30 years of experience, earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas, and practicing in Texas for his entire career. He is a member of the American Dental Association and the Texas Dental Association.

Dr. Brunelli has always wanted to be a dentist as long as he can remember. His childhood dentist in Tyler, Texas was a kind and gentle man who influenced Dr. Brunelli. Dr. Brunelli has volunteered in children’s clinics, as well as the Stewpot Dental clinic for the homeless of Dallas.

He has spearheaded two dental mission trips to Bulgaria, through his church in Richardson, TX. He is a motor head in that he loves all classic vehicles especially muscle cars. Ask about his 1966 Ford Mustang! He is one of nine children, and he is proud that he is a first generation Italian American. His father was born in Northern Italy and came over on a boat when he was five years old to Ellis Island where his name is etched in history.

We feel confidant that Dr. Brunelli will provide you and your family with the best possible care and compassion, along with our same wonderful team that you all know and love.
