Bianca McLendon, DMD

“Dentistry has always been more than just a profession or vocation for me; it is an integral part of who I am, a defining force and passion behind my desire to serve my patients and help them to enjoy the many benefits of optimal oral health.”

My Mission

“The joy of working with a team to deliver the best possible care for my patients has been a fundamental driver for the two decades that I’ve been practicing as a family, restorative, and cosmetic dentist. I strive to form lasting, meaningful relationships with my patients and their families, as well as my fellow team members and other specialists in order to make beautiful and healthy smiles in a caring and relaxing environment.”

Education

“My formation as a dental professional started with my degree from the University of Marilia Dental School. With a successful career in Sao Paulo underway, I moved on to complete advanced training from the University of Sao Paulo Dental School in Pediatric Dentistry, Special Needs Patient Care, and Dental Aesthetics. My life journey eventually led me to the United States where I completed an externship in Prosthodontics at UCLA and obtained my DMD from the University of Puerto Rico School of Dental Medicine.”
