Special Professional Interests

A Prosthodontist is like an engineer who diagnoses and rebuilds lost or compromised oral structures. The challenge and excitement of doing so drove me to choose this specialty. I love its vast scope and collaborating with different specialties to deliver great care to patients. In addition to patient care, I enjoy my involvement in academics, research and activities to continually broaden my skills and knowledge base via various professional affiliations.

I was given several options. I thought I was listened to as far as where I am at in my dental care. I do need quite a bit of work, but we were able to talk about doing it in stages. In the process of getting records from previous dentist to complete my file. Waiting on hearing next steps.

Dentist was kinda mad at me for having a bad gag reflex that I've had since a child. I had told the assistant and doctor before they started looking into my mouth that I had this issue. The assistant was very understanding but the doctor was rude. I will never come back to this office again. I have never left a doctors office feeling so mad about how I was verbally treated from a doctor in all my life.

Want to say how wonderful Dr. Kulkarni was with me. I have had a lot of work done, and she was so caring and understanding! I will definitely recommend her to friends and family! It meant a lot to have someone like her considering the bad experience I had as a kid. THANK YOU !

Dr. Kulkani expressed interest in my oral history, present state, and future care and health of my aging fillings, my night guard quality and usage, my TMD, CPAP, etc. She was very thorough and caring, giving me meaningful examples I could relate to easily. She followed up with a consultation at nc for my night guard and gave me excellent advice that fit with her team's insurance recommendation.

I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Kulkarni. I was nervous for the procedure, but she was extremely attentive and made sure I knew every step of the process. She was always making sure that I was comfortable, and answered all of my questions thoroughly. I could tell that she is very detailed and precise in her work, which eased my nerves as the patient. I rarely do surveys for clinics that I go to, but I just wanted to recognize how outstanding she is. Truly the best dental professional I have been in contact with.
