I’m Dr. Veera, and I’d like to personally invite you to explore what makes our practice unique and special.

Meet the doctor

Dr. Pallavi V. Veera

Dr. Veera graduated from the University of Southern California Dental School, Los Angeles in 2009 and moved to Saginaw with her family. She also has a Masters in Public Health from Northern Illinois University and a Bachelors of Dental Science from Bangalore, India. She has been practicing in the mid-Michigan area for the past 14 years and loves being in the ever-evolving field of modern dentistry.

Coming from a family of dentists, dentistry is not just a profession, but a passion to her. She is a life-long learner who always strives to integrate  newer technology with everyday dental practice. If she is not in the office, then she is traveling and participating in continued education and learning new techniques that have helped her offer a multitude of services to our patient base.

She respects the holistic approach to dentistry and offers Ozone therapy but also understands the need for a CO2 laser for certain procedures. She lives in Saginaw with her two children, 3 dogs and 2 cats.

Her dog, Bella, is also the office mascot and accompanies Dr. Veera to work every day!
