MEET DR. SANJAY KURUVADI
My passion for orthodontics is beyond what you can imagine! I love seeing people's lives change with their new awesome beautiful smiles. The rewards of being an orthodontist are many. I was first attracted to orthodontics because it allows me to tap into my artistic passions. I feel very fortunate to be able to help the people in my community gain confidence and self-esteem, as well as a “Hollywood” smile they can be proud to show off. I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, and the friendships that I've built with my patients and their families are one in a million. My favorite day is the day when your braces come off, and we see your final remarkable result together and I get the happy smile on your face. I love my work because it can change lives both physically and emotionally. I have seen many patients transform from being introverted people seemingly afraid of opening their mouths to smiling extroverts after treatment.
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
When I finished college, I was accepted by both medical and dental schools. My instincts led me to follow my older brother who is a cosmetic dentist and endodontist. I finished my professional education from Howard University where I finished my Residency in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics in 1995. Through scholarship and academic excellence, I was able to move ahead and finish at the age of 23 becoming the youngest licensed and certified orthodontist in the country.
I am involved with several orthodontic study groups that help me stay up to date with the newest technological advancements in my field. I am also a member of many professional associations that keep me involved with the greater orthodontic and dental communities
I am a member in the following Professional Affiliations: American Association of Orthodontists, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, San Diego County Dental Society, and the San Diego Academy of Orthodontists.
Since graduating, I have committed myself to learning new techniques and skills through continuing education and professional collaboration. I have put in thousands of hours paying special attention to orthodontic developments in the US and abroad. I have greatly benefited by learning from the Japanese for their work with correcting underbites and Europeans for their work with overbites, overjets, and functional appliances like twin blocks. I am one of the few orthodontists in the Metroplex who has extensive experience in treating patients with cleft lip and palate and craniofacial anomalies. I strive to offer the highest quality oral health care available, and I am so excited to offer you the best of US and international orthodontic treatments that stand up to my own high standards.
IN THE OFFICE
I always keep in mind that my orthodontic work affects your overall oral health. I believe that oral health affects people far beyond their mouths and jaw lines. It includes my orthodontic work and your overall dental health plan. Therefore, all treatments are designed individually to meet your needs with an eye to the whole picture. I will take the time to explain my recommendation, listen to your concerns, and answer any questions.
Furthermore, my work is meant to make a life-long impact. I believe educating you on how to care for your new smile is the key. My staff and I will spend time instructing you on how to keep your jaw in tiptop shape. We will provide you with whatever tools and information packets you need and will always be available for further questions as they arise.
