Meet the Team
Candace Bruno DMD
Dr. Candace Bruno attended Temple University School of Dentistry and graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2010. She went directly from dental school to working in private practice offices and a public health clinic in Harlingen, TX from 2010-2015. In 2011 she began attending advanced continuing education with world-renowned Spear Education to fine-tune her dental skills. Dr. Bruno has taken numerous courses on treating the mouth as a whole instead of on a tooth by tooth basis. As most dentists do, Dr. Bruno will look at your teeth for cavities and check for healthy gums and bone. However, Dr. Bruno’s passion is to help her patients find the best quality of life and health possible. She has been trained to evaluate every system involved with the oral cavity: the teeth, the gums, the bone, the joints, and the airway.
Dr. Candace Bruno met her husband, Jared, at dental school in Philadelphia. They have 4 year old twins Mason and Olivia. When she’s not doing dentistry or learning about dentistry, she enjoys being outside hiking, biking, and being active. Dr. Bruno was an avid traveler before becoming a mother and has journeyed to places far and wide.
Candice has been helping patients and dentists since 2001. She is compassionate towards patients and listens to each individual patient’s needs. She is able to relate to patients and makes every effort to build long lasting friendships and relationships. Candice has the ability and experience to make even the most fearful dental patients feel comfortable. She is wonderful at making sure patients truly understand their treatment options and is creative in finding ways to help patients proceed with the care they need and deserve.
When not working, Candice loves spending time with her family and friends. She looks forward to meeting you and helping facilitate a smooth and positive dental experience.
