When someone asks me to describe myself, the first thing I tell them is that I am a West Virginian. I was born in India and moved to the United States when I was three years old. Shortly thereafter, my family moved to Martinsburg, and I have called it home since.
After graduating from high school, I attended Shepherd University, where I obtained a biology degree. Then I was accepted into dental school at West Virginia University.
Dentistry has been what I have wanted to do since high school because of how oral health can affect people’s lives. It is an extraordinary feeling to be able to help someone once more enjoy their food or smile without hesitation. In short, I want to help my patients achieve these things and maintain their dental health for a lifetime. Furthering my education in learning new techniques and technology will enhance my ability to do these things.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog, Leo. Whether it’s gardening with mom and dad or taking Leo on a hike, or playing golf or tennis, being outside in the hills of West Virginia is my favorite pastime ... unless the Mountaineers are playing and then I am watching them and cheering them on!
I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and your family to help provide your dental health needs.
Let’s go, Mountaineers!
