Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
When Dr. Gupta was young, she was regularly in and out of the doctor’s office because of skin problems, which exposed her to the medical field very early in life. These experiences inspired her to become a doctor because she wanted to help others and relieve their pain. Then, she discovered dentistry and never looked back! Today, she still finds it extremely rewarding to care for her patients and give them back the happier, healthier teeth they need to thrive.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After completing dental school in India and a one-year residency, Dr. Gupta decided to pursue higher education, which brought her to the USA. She graduated from the New York University College of Dentistry. Over the past 20 years, she has completed over 700 hours of continuing education in order to expand her clinical skills and has attended several mini residencies in endodontics, pediatric dentistry, dental implants, and more. She is currently a member of the following organizations:

Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
