In 1988, Dr. Madhav left her home in Zambia to pursue her dental education in Oklahoma. She completed her undergraduate degree at South Western Oklahoma State University, and then enrolled at the Oklahoma University College of Dentistry.
She completed her studies in 1994 and was then accepted into the highly selective Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program. In the course of one demanding year she had the opportunity to treat patients with diverse needs, gaining valuable clinical experience that would otherwise have taken many years to accomplish.
Following the completion of her AEGD residency, Dr. Madhav joined a private practice in Oklahoma. In May of 2000, she finally opened her Plano practice, where she has since offered state-of-the-art care with a growing patient base.
Deepak is both our office’s business manager and Dr. Madhav’s husband. Every day, he works toward creating a professional atmosphere where we can all deliver exceptional care. Originally from Vancouver, Canada, he came to the states in 1993 to attend grad school at Syracuse University. After completing his studies, he fell in love with Plano, settling here in 1995. He spends most of his time researching new developments in customer service so we can bring them into our office. Away from the office, he enjoys reading.

She graduated college in 1987 with a Business Degree and then backpacked through Europe to take in as many new experiences as possible. She finally settled in a place closer to here, but with many similarities to Europe: Alberta, Canada. She left Canada to attend dental hygiene school in Amarillo, Texas, where she met her wonderful husband, Dan.
