She has 2 years of dental experience in the United States working on cosmetic dentistry, bridges, crowns, root canals, extractions, restorations and single unit implants. She received her Masters in Public Health from Johns Hopkins University. She has an additional two years experience in India after finishing dental school. She chose dentistry where she could explore the artistic and empathetic side of herself to bring beautiful smiles to her patients and to ease their pain. She enjoys interacting with different kinds of people. The area of dentistry is vast, from placing a small filling to full mouth rehabilitation. Hence, She loves working as a general dentist where she would never be bored. She is excited to finally live in the sunshine state and she is sure her pup will be equally excited.
