Meet Karishma Patil, BDS, MSD – endodontics

Dr. Karishma Patil is a graduate from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio where she received her master’s degree in Endodontics. She is an active member of the American Dental Association, American Association of Endodontics and a Board-eligible Endodontist. During her residency, she was a recipient of the AAE Resident Award.

She comes from a family of endodontists; her mother and sister! Apart from her professional life, Dr. Patil enjoys baking, travelling and spending time with family.

Why I chose Endodontics:

” I have an understanding of severe dental pain having experienced an episode myself and can readily relate to the patient’s distress. I believe that providing relief for such pain is the most rewarding aspect of this profession and I am grateful to be part of the endodontic community. With new technological advancements and a touch of tender loving care, we strive to change the concept of root canal therapy from a stressful procedure to a comfortable and highly pleasant experience!”
