Dr. Sanjay Kuruvadi's Credentials
Accepting New Patients
Yes, this doctor is accepting new patients
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 at 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 to become 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 advances 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 of the following organizations: American Association of Orthodontists, Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, San Diego County Dental Society, and San Diego Academy of Orthodontists. Since graduation, 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 of oral healthcare available. 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 have a lifelong 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.
