Our Story

About The Surgeon

In 1989, Dr. Bruce Arné graduated from Appalachian State University where he attended on an Athletic Scholarship for Soccer. From ASU he went on to UNC at Chapel Hill for graduate school. He finished his Master of Science degree in Audiology in ’91 with a GPA of 4.50. While in graduate school, Dr. Arné was able to work very closely with the UNC-CH Dept. of Otolaryngology (ENT). It was during this time that he developed an interest in head and neck surgery. He also became acquainted with many of the Dental students at Chapel Hill. It was because of these friendships that he made the decision to apply to the UNC-CH School of Dentistry (being accepted in ’93).

After graduating with a DDS degree in ’97, Dr. Arné was accepted into the UNC-CH Department of Anesthesiology as a resident. He interviewed alongside many newly graduated MD's for this very competitive position. After his anesthesiology residency, he received comprehensive training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) at the UCSF-Fresno campus(University Medical Center- a Level I trauma center). It was at this time that he was able to develop his skills in facial reconstruction, treatment of head and neck trauma, craniofacial surgery on children, and reconstructive surgery and pathology for cancer patients.

In 2002, Dr. Arné moved to Wilmington, NC – the city where his wife was born and raised – and established his practice. Since that time he has held an adjunct associate professor position in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at UNC-CH; has been appointed as a team doctor for the UNC-W athletic department; has been elected President of the Board of Directors for the Cape Fear Soccer Association; has assisted Law Enforcement with tactical medicine and training; and has developed an interest in Disaster Medicine, tactical medicine, and assisting the men and women of the US Armed Services. Recently he was appointed to the editorial review board of the Journal of Special Operations Medicine and the International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons disaster relief team.
