Dr. Jill Bruno takes great pride in creating an orthodontic experience that makes patients excited to come to her office.
Dr. Bruno grew up in Buffalo, New York and Bay Beach, Ontario. She graduated Magna cum laude from Boston College with a BA in economics. After receiving her Doctorate of Dental Medicine and master’s degree in education from the University of Pennsylvania, she pursued her certificate in orthodontics at Eastman Dental Center/University of Rochester.
Dr. Bruno returned to the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, where she was appointed a clinical professor in the Department of Orthodontics. After three years at the university, she relocated to Ohio, where she accepted the position of assistant clinical professor in orthodontics at Case Western Reserve University, and maintained an active practice.
In 2004, Dr. Bruno relocated to this area and opened her practice in Chevy Chase. She resides in Washington, DC with her husband Jim, and three children: Ella, Clayton, and Wilkes.
Staying current on the latest technology and advances in the field of orthodontics is essential to Dr. Bruno. She achieves this by being involved in many local and national organizations, including the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, and the DC Dental Society. On an international level, she is a volunteer with Operation Smile. She is also on the board of the Hearing and Speech Center at the National Children’s Medical Center.
In addition to advancing her own education, Dr. Bruno is a strong believer in continuing education for the whole team. Everyone attends continuing education programs to help them strive to be better every day, whether they are assistants or scheduling coordinators.
Dr. Bruno’s interests outside of the office include horses, golf, and tennis. She loves spending time with her rescue dog, Duke.
