Dr. Bruce Haggerty started Leisure Dental to help people relieve their dental pain, to improve and maintain their healthy smiles, and to provide affordable dental care to communities in need in the Norfolk, VA area.

He believes that through patient education and proper oral care patients can reach their smile goals.

Born in Germany and raised in Dallas, Dr. Haggerty has always aspired to become a dentist.

He earned his bachelors in biology with a minor in chemistry from Prairie View A&M University. While there, he participated in Tri-Beta Biological Honor Society and was also an active member in his university pre-dental club. Afterward, Dr. Haggerty attended Texas A&M College of Dentistry where he earned his D.D.S.

Currently, he has affiliations with the American Dental Association and Virginia Dental Association.

While in Texas, Dr. Haggerty met his now wife, who was stationed there in the United States Navy. Soon they received orders to move to Virginia and where they started their new life together in Hampton Roads.

In his leisure time, Dr. Haggerty enjoys working out and attending his local church. He is also very active in the community with the Norfolk Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alphi Psi Fraternity Inc. 


We offer superior family dentistry services to the Norfolk, VA area including preventative care, pediatric dentistry, emergency visits, and cavities and fillings. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Bruce Haggerty to learn more!


Dental emergencies can happen, and often do when you least expect them. You can crack a tooth by biting into a sandwich, for example, or you can lose a filling right before giving an important speech. Emergency visits are necessary for dental problems that are painful, cause swelling or fever, involve a broken, missing or cracked tooth, or that cause bleeding in the tongue or lips.


Dr. Haggerty suggests you make an emergency visit with Leisure Dental whenever a dental problem appears that is especially painful or involves the loss of part of a tooth or an entire tooth.

A toothache: Seek dental care as soon as you feel discomfort or pain
Broken, chipped or cracked teeth: If the tooth was broken, wrap any remnants in a wet gauze or wet towel and bring them with you
Loosened or knocked out teeth: Contact Leisure Dental right away if you have a loosened tooth; try reinserting a knocked out tooth then contact Leisure Dental immediately
Bitten tongue or lip: Clean the area with a wet cloth and hold a cold compress to the affected area; contact Leisure Dental immediately for excessive or persistent bleeding
For other dental emergencies and medical emergencies, call 911.


Teeth whitening is one of the easiest, most convenient and most cost-effective way of improving your appearance. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, and white teeth are an important part of a healthy-looking, attractive smile. Professional teeth whitening, also known as tooth whitening, can safely lighten your teeth by several shades and help reduce stains and discolorations to make a noticeable improvement in your smile.


Leisure Dental offers pediatric dentistry, which is a branch of dental care specially designed for children, from infancy through teen years. Pediatric dentistry focuses on addressing the special dental problems kids face – such as cavities – and help prepare their young patients for a lifetime of good oral health and great smiles.


Dental implants are strong titanium posts that act as permanent bases for replacement teeth. Surgically implanted into your jaw, these sturdy posts support crowns that look, feel and function just like your natural teeth. Unlike dentures that you must take out for cleaning and soaking, dental implants stay in your mouth permanently.

OUTSTANDING Customer Service, Staff and Grand Opening Prices! I no longer have a painful tooth ache. Dr. Haggerty Jr. pulled my tooth. Don’t worry if you don’t have insurance. You can afford a teeth cleaning or extraction… Refer your family & friends.
