Dr. Pranav Kataria

Born in a family of doctors, healthcare as a profession came naturally. The ability to
serve the community selflessly, and the constant people interaction are very satisfying and
rewarding to me. I really enjoy the process of educating my patients, recommending treatment options and performing treatment to serve their needs.

As a child I had the privilege to live in different societies. These included Saudi Arabia,
USA, North and South India. This helped me understand different cultures and made me more accepting and accommodating towards people of different backgrounds. I am fluent in English, Hindi, Punjabi.

I graduated dental school from the University of California, Los Angeles, USA with honors
in multiple subjects. Prior to completing dental school, I completed a Master’s in Public Health (Epidemiology) and had the honor to work at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, Texas and perform research linked to Oral Cancer under the guidance of renowned cancer researchers.

Board certified in USA and Canada; I constantly strive to invest in myself by taking
continuing education courses. My emphasis lies on providing quality care and a comfortable patient experience. My years in training and work have given me a lot of exposure to the surgical aspect of dentistry, which I also love doing.

I live with my beautiful wife who is also a dentist, and my daughter Samyra who just turned 10 months old. We love being outdoors, going on long drives and exploring nature.
