Dr. Bruce Silva

Dr. Bruce Silva has been happily providing quality dental care to satisfied patients for more than 30 years. After graduating from the University of Texas Houston Dental Branch in 1981, he opened his first office and successfully practiced dentistry in Houston for 16 years. In 1999, Dr. Silva decided to relocate to Austin and he has since enjoyed providing advanced dental care to Austin-area residents and is a proud member of Austin’s dental health community.

Dr. Silva truly enjoys his profession because, he says, it allows him to help the Austin community in a meaningful way. As an Austin dental professional, Dr. Silva knows how important dental health is to a person’s overall health, so he is always learning and exploring new skills and techniques that can help improve his patient’s lives. Dr. Silva knows that is the key to providing quality, advanced dental care. Every year, he attends multiple continuing education courses, seminars and workshops where he furthers his own education and learns the latest techniques and treatments. He understands that knowledge and understanding of medical science is always expanding, and that includes the science of dentistry, so he seeks opportunities to help his patients by staying abreast of these developments, thus allowing him to continue to provide important health services to the Austin dental community.

When he’s not at the office, Dr. Silva enjoys spending time with his wife and two children. His family, he says, are an ongoing source of inspiration and creativity. When not involved with his children’s scouting and other activities, Dr. Silva enjoys woodwork, swimming, hiking, snow skiing, playing classical guitar, and tennis. He also takes part in Austin’s vibrant selection of cultural arts, concerts, theater and museums.
