Where are you from?
I am from a small town in India called Hooghly.
Why did you choose EIOH?
As a young dentist in India, I had always dreamt of studying in the US. The outstanding research opportunities, state-of-the-art technology, and world-class faculty members made EIOH my first preference.
The best memories of EIOH are the moments I spent with my friends.
Any awards won or recognitions during your residency?
- Passed the ABDPH written examination
- Passed the NBPHE CPH exam
- Received honorable mention at AAPHD Leverett Graduate Student Merit Award 2022.

Favorite/Least Favorite thing about Rochester?
The best part of Rochester is that it has everything to offer while being a small city. There are tons of attractions nearby, such as the high falls and Letchworth park. Go to Park Ave if you want to party or to Highland park if you just want to chill alone or with friends.
Did the EIOH experience make a better you?
During my journey at EIOH, the professors became guardians, the colleagues became brothers/ sisters, and they all together made me grow as a person.
What are your plans/next steps upon graduation?
I am starting the Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) at the University of the Pacific.
What will you miss the most?
I will miss the community dentistry family, including my professors, administrators, assistants, and friends who became family.
