DR. CARLO DECANDIA
I come from an Italian-Portuguese household and grew up in the valley for much of my life. I attended The University of Texas at Austin for college and completed my dental education at Nova University in Fort Lauderdale followed by residency in Brooklyn New York. My favorite sports are soccer and football and I still participate in local leagues playing both sports. My hobbies are traveling and exercising. I am an avid believer in health and fitness and dedicate my free time to daily workouts and personal health. I enjoy spending time with my family who also reside in McAllen and very happy to return back home in the valley.
