Meet Dr. Helen Bono

“I believe the true role of a pediatric dentist is to teach patients (and parents!) how to take care of their teeth and about dentistry, and preparing the patient for a lifetime of happy visits and healthy teeth. Making a difference in the lives of my patients is what I’m most passionate about.” — Dr. Bono

Dr. Helen Bono is originally from Richmond, Virginia. She received her Bachelor of Science in chemistry from Radford University, and her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Virginia Commonwealth University. She went on to earn her certificate in pediatric dentistry from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
