Dentist

Dr. Kumar was born and raised in Northern India, specifically residing in the states of Haryana and New Dehli. As a child he admired his parents' dedication to serving society through their teaching professions. He says 'their hard work and love for people' was the inspiration to look into healthcare professions. Writing his medical entrance exam and a visit to Manipal College of Dental Sciences in (Mangalore) Karnataka reinforced that this field was perfect for him. Later, Dr. Kumar attended and graduated with high honors from University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Kumar's favorite part of being a Dentist is the human interaction. "I believe being a dentist gives you a very good chance to interact with your patients and have a good personal connection with them," he said. "Oral health is a mirror to the overall health of a person and I like to believe that I can help my patients by being that gatekeeper and preserver of not just their oral health but also their overall health." He also enjoys the dynamic environment of dentistry, as well as its technological developments and challenges. Dr. Kumar's clinical interests include prosthetic and surgical work. In his free time, Dr. Kumar enjoys a variety of activities, depending on the day. Somedays he may be catching up on sleep, while others he may be playing tennis, gardening, working on projects around the house, or getting in a good laugh during a comedy movie, his favorite. A man of many talents, Dr. Kumar can speak four languages (English, Hindi, Haryanvi, and Punjabi), can fix just about anything, and is sure to beat you at a game of ping pong.
