I believe it is one of those rare medical fields where you can provide valuable health care services, and also bring about a magical change in someone’s life by creating healthy , beautiful and confident smiles!!”

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.

Happily married, Dr. Yerra and her husband have two beautiful children.
