The practice of dentistry has enabled me to evolve as a kind, compassionate individual and a competent provider instrumental in serving people achieve better dental health. It is always a pleasure to work with different people, to be personally involved in their care, and watch them spread smiles. My goal as a dentist is to facilitate oral health of my patients and help them make informed decisions about their dental treatment.
My interest in dentistry began at a young age, after witnessing my father’s complex dental treatment. Amazing effects of the treatment on his overall health and confidence to smile wide again inspired me to pursue oral healthcare and dentistry, in order to make that same impact on the lives of others.
I began my journey at K. M. Shah Dental College and Hospital, a leading dental school in India and a pioneer in the state of art dentistry. There, I earned my bachelor and masters degree in dental sciences. Upon moving to the United States, I attended the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine and graduated with Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
In order to provide the evidence based and up to date care to all the patients, I have continued my education by participating in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry fellowship program in dental implants. I also continuously stay in touch with evidence-based dental literature and research through my memberships with the:
- American Dental Association
- North Dakota Dental Association
- American Academy of Implant Dentistry
- Southeast District Dental Society
- Heartland Study Club
I live in West Fargo with my husband Parth Vyas, an Orthopedic Surgeon at Sanford Hospital, my daughter Aadhya, as well as our pet golden retriever Mango.
In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, Indian classical dance, or playing with my dog in the backyard. In the summer, you can find me on the pickle ball court or bike riding with my daughter. I also like training for and participating in Fargo marathon.
I volunteer at Feed My Starving Children, an organization that provides food to undernourished children around the world. I also devote my time and effort to support our community through various positions in non profit and religious organizations.
