Why Did You Want to
Become a Dentist?

When he initially went to college, Dr. Babu had aspirations to become a cardiac physician. But, during his third year, a friend suggested that he volunteer at a dental office. At first, he was a little hesitant because he says he was very naïve about oral healthcare and dentistry as a career. Once he was actually in the dental office, however, he fell in love with it. He was drawn to the clinical aspect and liked the immediate gratification of being able to help a patient eat and smile again.

Where Did You
Study Dentistry?

After graduating from the New York Institute of Technology, Dr. Babu earned his dental degree at the NYU College of Dentistry. He went on to complete a 2-year post-graduate residency, during which he served as chief resident. Today, he is an Invisalign Certified Provider and maintains active memberships in both the American Dental Association and New York State Dental Association.

Outside of the Dental Office,
What Do You Like to Do?

Dr. Babu comes from a very large family that includes his parents, sister, aunts and uncles, as well as about 28 first cousins, all of whom he is very close with! Any chance he gets, he likes to swim to destress or paint to stimulate his creative mind. When he can, he enjoys traveling so he can explore new cultures and experience exciting foods. Many weekends, he dedicates himself to community service to help those who need it the most.

A couple of interesting facts about Dr. Babu: he once flew a plane, and back in college, he was the captain of a Bollywood dance team!
