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.

The dentist did an excellent job of communicating however, I felt somewhat hurried to make a decision on treatment at the point of the consultation, before discussing the recommendations with my primary care dentist.

The dentist was very good at explaining everything to my husband who suffers from memory loss. Later In the appointment she asked him to tell her what was discussed earlier to see if he had the facts straight.

She should give more options instead of talking only about veneers. I was very disappointed and will consider going somewhere else.

I have to return for more consultation before I can be given an estimate on the cost of the treatment options. I would also like to know how much will be covered by my insurance.

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 !
