With native roots in India, Dr. Vishal Kulkarni was driven by his innate desire to bring about meaningful change and enhance people's lives through the art of dentistry, utilizing his expertise in transforming smiles. After earning his Bachelor of Dental Surgery in India, where he honed his skills and developed a deep understanding of oral health care, Dr. Kulkarni set his sights on expanding his knowledge further.
Taking a leap of faith, he moved to the United States to pursue higher education opportunities that would enable him to provide exceptional dental care on an even larger scale. He embarked on this new chapter by achieving a Master of Public Health degree. Dr. Kulkarni's thirst for knowledge led him to the prestigious University of Southern California Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry, where he immersed himself in rigorous academic studies and hands-on clinical training. This journey culminated in him becoming a Doctor of Dental Surgery - a remarkable achievement that solidified his expertise and prepared him for the challenges ahead.
In 2017, fueled by ambition and a desire to fulfill his lifelong vision as a dentist dedicated to providing comprehensive care with compassion, Dr. Kulkarni opened Deluxe Dental, his first dental practice. Since then, it has been nothing short of fulfilling for him as he gets immense joy from offering personalized attention while focusing on delivering quality treatment.
