I love to be empowered and to empower others! As a dentist, I have the special privilege of helping others feel healthier and happier about themselves. It’s important to me to give my future patients control of their oral health, and I can’t wait to do so.

The oral cavity is the window to the rest of the body. As a dentist, I want to help bring patients to a state of oral health and guide them to feel empowered, so they can take control and maintain their health and wellbeing.

Seema R. Prakash
Growing up with a father who was a devoted nurse, I knew that I wanted to be just like him. He was able to create relationships with patients that stretched far beyond the nurse-patient dynamic. I knew that dentistry would allow me the opportunity to not only treat my patients, but interact with them on a personal level.
