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.
