A longtime Howard County resident, Dr. Paulomi Desai received her BA in Chemistry/Biochemistry from Goucher College. Dr. Desai earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Maryland Dental School in 1998 where she was inducted into the Gamma Pi Delta Prosthodontic Honor Society. She went on to complete her residency program for Advanced Education in General Dentistry in 1999.
Dr. Desai believes lifelong learning is vital in allowing her to provide the most technologically advanced treatments for her patients. She, therefore, consistently exceeds the requirements for continuing education each year by making it a priority to learn from leaders in her profession. She is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the Central Maryland Implant Study Club, and is an Associate Fellow in the World Clinical Laser Institute.
Dr. Desai gains immense satisfaction by volunteering her knowledge and skill to several philanthropic projects. Annually, she provides free dental screenings for local health fairs raising awareness about the importance of oral health and it's connection to a person's overall well being. For the past three years, she has travelled to Medellin, Colombia with a Dental School classmate and provided care for the less fortunate.
