Leonord Pagadala

Dentist

Dr. Pagadala earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2015, and his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Human Biology from the University of California in Merced. One of his favorite aspects of dentistry is the amount of intricate detail and fine motor skills involved in bringing a tooth to health. "I know that for most people, going to the dentist can be an anxiety-filled, stressful event. My goal is to provide a space of transparency and comfort to all of my patients. I strive to not only provide quality care but to provide an atmosphere of dialogue and understanding when it comes to each patient’s individual oral health." Dr. Pagadala speaks English and Spanish. In his spare time, he travels extensively with his wife, Adriana, and two extremely spoiled maltipoos - Coconut and Pumpkin. "Our favorite place, so far, has been Iceland. When we’re not traveling, most of my time is spent being forced to give belly rubs to my two dogs (they can be very convincing), working out, reading, and exploring the vast offering of restaurants that the Bay Area has to offer."

She is a certified Invisalign provider and stays current with the latest techniques in dentistry through CE courses and seminars. “No one knows it, when it’s actually happening, but we never forget it when it does. I was only 15 years old when I visited the dentist’s office for the treatment of my grandma who had tooth pain, and after regular visits her tooth got better. I saw dentistry as a fusion of science and art and found that it had power of healing. My dentist’s dedication towards his work and his respect among the patients made a very favorable impression on me. I decided to become a dentist like him.” Dr. Kumar believes takes a patient-centered approach to care, including patient education and comfort. “One of the responsibilities of a dentist is to not only provide proper treatment, but to also make the patient feel comfortable and assured. This can only happen if our office is a place where everyone is happy, smiling and cheerful.” Dr. Kumar understands that when anxious patients feel comfortable, they are more likely to take care of their teeth with routine visits. “In order for our patients to look forward to their visit, we need to develop great relationships within our own team and to be happy working with each other.” Dr. Kumar speaks English and Hindi. Away from work, Dr. Kumar enjoys cooking, travelling and spending time with her family.
