Candace Ruff, DMD
Born in Chicago and raised in Hinsdale, Illinois, she graduated from Fenwick High School and earned athletic and academic scholarships to the University of Missouri and to Villanova University. There, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology while playing Division I soccer at both. She was recognized as a Big East All-Academic Team Honoree and served as President of the academic fraternity, Delta Sigma Delta-Alpha Omicron Chapter.
Subsequently, Dr. Ruff earned her Master of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences from Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona in 2015, and received her Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree from the Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine in Downers Grove, Illinois in 2019.
Continuously advancing her efforts, she is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Illinois State Dental Society, and the Chicago Dental Society.
Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.
When she is not tending to patients, Dr. Ruff enjoys playing piano, exercising, and spending time with family and friends.

Dr. Daniel Burstein, Orthodontist
Born in Santiago, Chile in 1960. My family moved to the USA in 1962. I grew up speaking both English and Spanish. We moved to California where I went to college, dental school, and orthodontic specialty school where I became an Orthodontist in 2020. My wife and I moved to Atlanta, GA in 1993 where we raised 3 boys who are now all out of the house.
I have owned and operated my orthodontic practice in Atlanta since 1995.
I recently sold my office to join Platinum. I have years of experience in managing an orthodontic practice both in clinical and administrative areas.
I am proficient in all clinical aspects of orthodontic care. I specialize in expanders, habit appliances, braces, bite correctors, in house aligners using Orchestrate 3D software, as well as invisalign.
My goal is to join a dental/orthodontic group where I can concentrate on providing treatment to patients in need. I joined Platinum because I aim to provide care to those in need without the distraction of running a private
practice. I also look forward to enjoying more professional interactions and participation in more interdisciplinary orthodontic treatment plans.
Myong Mike Lee, DDS

In addition to Dr. Lee’s broad dental experience, he speaks Spanish, Korean, and English to better serve our patients. We are proud of the extensive experience and passion that Dr. Lee brings to his specialty and we are happy that he’s part of our team.
