A top ranked modern-day Orthodontist, Dr. Amit Asudani graduated in 2010 as a dentist with a heavy focus on cosmetic dentistry. After three years of practicing as a general dentist he realized the glaring gap between modern cosmetic dentistry and traditional cosmetic dentistry.

Dr. Amit spends countless hours in continuing to enhance his skills with modern techniques that are gaining popularity in the field of cosmetic dentistry worldwide.
