I was born in New Delhi, India and spent my childhood there. I moved to San Jose CA at the age of 11. I spent the next three years of my life living in the bay area after which I moved to Las Vegas NV. I completed my high school education there and then decided to go to UC Davis for college which is in a small town of Davis close to Sacramento CA. After graduating from college.I spent the next year of my life working as a pediatric dental assistant. I really enjoyed the work and decided during this time to pursue dentistry. I was accepted to UCSF School of Dentistry and spent the next 4 years of my life living in San Francisco. I really enjoyed dentistry however my first experience of working with children was still my favorite. I decided to apply for a residency in Pediatric Dentistry and ended up going back to Las Vegas where I did my residency at UNLV. I love working with children and believe a strong foundation for a healthy smile are formed at a very young age.

My parents have been living in the Tri Cities for the last 12 years and I have frequently visited Tri Cities as I am no stranger to the Tri City community. I look forward to moving to Tri Cities and contributing to build a great foundation for children's oral health in our community.
