Alekhya Patagarla DDS

Howdy Y’all! I am Alekhya Patagarla DDS MHA, an artist by nature and dentist by profession. In molding the masterpiece of my life chapters, I had to use many bright colors of excellence as well as overcome the muted colors of challenge. Although initially, my career in dentistry started by chance and not by choice, I have come to realize it is a perfect fit and my developing passion is stronger with each new experience I gain.

Dr. Patagarla

I started my early education at a missionary school that helped me build a self-disciplined and focused approach to life. I finished my Bachelor’s in Dental Surgery (BDS) in India and worked for 5 years before moving to the United States. I did my Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) at Western Kentucky University (WKU), Kentucky where I was recognized for my active participation in community development and welfare programs while serving as a graduate assistant on full scholarship. Then went onto graduate on Dean’s list at the prestigious University of Southern California (USC-Go Trojans) with a DDS degree (Doctor of Dental Surgery).

 I grew up with my grandparents that taught me a lot about being grateful and giving back to the society. I am a passionate human being with skills to serve patients of all ages. My patients call me “Dr. I-LIKE-YA” because I give them comfort and add a tinge of humor to their anxiety towards dentistry. I am a very happy person and believe in the fact that every human has a right to stay healthy and happy.

Fun facts about me, if I am not working I will be playing ping pong with my husband or painting on canvas. I am a professional Indian classical dancer and be ready to dance any form any time 24X7.
