Meet Dr. Anitha Durgam

I became a dentist to improve the appearance and confidence of individuals and to help eliminate the perception that dentistry must be uncomfortable. I believe in maintaining an ethical, personal, and professional standards in all aspects of care. My goal is to create relationships and educate each patient so they can maintain a healthy and a beautiful smile for a lifetime.
