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."
