Dr. Bhawna Chandra, DDS

“A smile is the shortest distance between two people!”

My Mission & Goal

I am very excited to serve the patients of Island Cosmetic and Family Dentistry here in Cocoa Beach. As my patient, you can expect to be treated like family. My goal is to make a positive influence in community by offering high-quality, comprehensive and compassionate dental care in a friendly and stress-free environment for my patients. I understand that coming to dental office can be daunting to many, and therefore I try to alleviate their anxiety by educating and counselling my patients about their oral health and targeting their specific needs. Dentistry has the power of healing and I feel there is no greater pleasure than having the ability to alleviate people’s pain. Together, we can achieve improved oral health and happier smiles in a relaxed environment.

Life & Hobbies

Prior to becoming a dentist, Dr. Naidu worked as a software engineer in both the finance and high-tech sectors.
