Candace Colella DMD, PA – Your Dentist in Coconut Creek, FL
Growing up in New Castle, a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I enjoyed a loving home that nurtured my talents and lead me to begin my formal education at Gannon University in Erie, Pennsylvania, where in 1991 I graduated with a B.S. in Biology. My interests soon became focused on Dentistry and I was delighted to discover that my application to the prestigious University of Pittsburgh School of Dentistry had been accepted on early admission. I studied hard and was very active as a leader of several important organizations. Enthusiastically, I served as the President of the Women’s Student Dental Association and Vice-President of the American Student Dental Association as well as Treasurer of the American Society of Dentistry for Children. In my senior year I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to present research that I had done for the University’s Orthodontic Department in Seattle and was recognized as the Outstanding Senior of the Year by the American Association of Orthodontics.
In 1994 I proudly graduated with a D.M.D. Upon graduation I moved to Hartford, Connecticut to complete my general practice residency and later became an associate in a dental office in Moodus, Connecticut until 1998. The following year I joined the rest of my family in beautiful South Florida and began building Colella Family Dentistry hoping to provide the best, most caring, gentle, and professional dental care available. In March of 1999 I opened my own dental practice with hopes that I could bring to my patients the kind of care and confidence that come with being part of a good family. I never imagined that in three short years that I would be honored in a Sun-Sentinel newspaper poll as the best dentist in Broward County! I now continue my affiliation with many dental organizations such as the Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, and The Atlantic Coast Dental Association to increase my knowledge of new and improved dental techniques to make your visit with us a more pleasant experience.
