Bhavna Kapoor, DDS

MEET BHAVNA KAPOOR, DDS

 

Dr. Kapoor earned a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) degree from the Bapuji Dental College and Hospital Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Science in Karnataka, India, and followed through with a Doctorate in Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of Colorado (UOC). Being a general dental practitioner allows Dr. Kapoor to work with both adults and children handling dental care from beginning to end, including case histories, diagnoses, endodontic and prosthodontic treatment, extractions, restorations, and general dental procedures. The most important part of the job, however, is patient education and comfort. “My work at Monticello Family Dental enables me to serve the community by providing excellent comprehensive dental care by using my acquired skills both as a competent professional and as a compassionate human being,” Dr. Kapoor says. For her, the decision to enter the dental field was prompted in part by family; “Many of my family members are physicians, dentists, and engineers, and my eldest sister required significant dental work after an accident, so it felt right to pursue dentistry.” When not engaged in providing excellent dental care, Dr. Kapoor can be found spending time with family (happily married for 12 years, with an 11-year-olddaughter and a 3-year-old son), supporting charity efforts through Give Kids a Smile and the American Red Cross, and shopping at the local mall. Given a year off to do anything, a world tour with the whole family along for the trip would be ideal!

 

MEET PAUL HARRIS, DDS

 

Paul Harris, DDS, is a welcome addition to the Monticello Family Dental team. He particularly loves helping to cultivate a family atmosphere at the practice and sets the bar high for making a visit to the dental office a positive experience for patients.

“I chose dentistry to be able to meld my desire to interact with and help people, with my enjoyment and ability to work with my hands,” says Dr. Harris. “I think people view the dentists' office much like going to confession where they will have to confess their ‘dental sins’. I want my office to be a place where people understand that we are on the same side and that the entire staff as a team is here to help the patient achieve their utmost health.”

Dr. Harris was born in Pratt, KS, achieved his BS in Biology at Kansas State University, and earned his DDS from UMKC. He believes the best parts of being a dentist are patient centric. “Viewing the impact we have on patients' lives, helping people build their self-confidence, and relieving them of pain are daily occurrences!”

Dr. Harris’ wife, Andrea, is also in training to become a dentist, and he looks forward to a future working side by side with her when she graduates and joins the practice. “Marrying Andrea was the smartest thing I ever did,” he says. “Without her, I wouldn’t be the man or the dentist I have become. The most important thing to have in the people around you is integrity – we can build each other up through what we say and do together.”

When he’s not disrupting the idea that the dental office is a place of judgement, Dr. Harris can be found running the trails around his home with his dog, Asher, or preparing for triathlons. A self-avowed history buff, he hopes to travel with Andrea and Asher someday to see Europe and the Holy Land.
