Dr. Bridget Collins grew up on the east coast of sunny Florida in a small town called Port St. Lucie. Her love for dentistry developed through volunteer work at the University of Central Florida where, as a pre-dental student, she was able to educate the underserved community about oral hygiene. She found a dental mentor in the Orlando community and spent her days shadowing at the office to learn more about the field. With each passing day she saw how dentistry could make such a difference in people’s lives, whether it be getting someone out of pain or delivering a new smile.
Dr. Collins majored in Biology and received a minor in Health Sciences at the University of Central Florida. After graduating, she chose to attend the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry all the way in foggy San Francisco. She chose this school based on its high merit and excellent reputation in the dental community. She excelled clinically in the program and became well versed in many aspects of dentistry, including oral surgery and endodontics.
Today, Dr. Collins is still involved with the local dental society (Mid-Peninsula Dental Society), the California Dental Association, the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry. She is always striving to learn more and keep up to date with the latest materials and technology. She takes pride in her work and wants to deliver the best care to all her patients.
