Dr. Kakarla is a 14-year dental veteran, and she has been a part of the Healthy Smiles team since 2010. She says that she is very critical of her work, which only benefits our patients, as she doesn’t stop until she achieves absolute perfection with every treatment. We’re thrilled to have her here, and you can learn more about Dr. Kakarla by reading on below.
Dr. Kakarla was drawn to dentistry because she saw that it would give her the opportunity to help people on a daily basis. She was exposed to a lot of friends and family members who lacked adequate dental care growing up, and she wanted to be able to protect people from having to deal with easily preventable problems.
After growing up and beginning her college career in her native India, Dr. Kakarla made her way to the U.S. where she enrolled in the Boston University School of Dental Medicine. After graduating, she completed a General Practice Residency at the VA Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI. Today, she takes numerous continuing education courses each year so she can keep herself up to date on all the latest dental research and technology.
At home, Dr. Kakarla likes to primarily spend time hanging out with her two daughters, and she tries to stay active by frequently running 10ks. She also loves to travel whenever she can to learn new things about interesting people and unfamiliar cultures.
