About the dentist

Dr. Betsy Bruen knew from a young age that she wanted to be a dentist. She saw dentistry as the perfect mix of science, attention to detail, and building relationships. Dr. Bruen was born and raised in the western suburbs of Chicago. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame in 2010, and then went on to Creighton University School of Dentistry, graduating in 2014. While in dental school, she volunteered with Give Kids a Smile and One World Clinic.

“I thoroughly enjoy working with people. I believe that it is my job as a dentist for my patients to feel comfortable and happy in the dental chair. It is important to actually listen to my patients and address their needs, giving them the time to answer their questions properly to make them fully aware of their oral health and dental treatment.”

Out of the office, Dr. Bruen enjoys spending time with her husband Conor and son Jack, all forms of exercise (she has an abundance of energy and has a hard time sitting still), cheering on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team, and baking all things sweet (brushing her teeth afterward, of course).
