I graduated from one of the top dental schools of India and started my general dentistry practice in my hometown before coming to the USA. In the USA, I volunteered with American Red Cross and Dept. Of Veteran Affairs. To hone my periodontal knowledge, I did my 1yr internship from University of Florida. Currently, I am proud to be part of IUPUI Periodontal program. In the future, I would like to have my career in academia. Also, I would work towards the growth of my charitable trust named “Smithasy Foundation”.

In my free time, I love auto detailing, play video games, watch movies and travel to new places. I love to volunteer and give back to society with Salvation Army and by contributing to Orphanages in India.
