Dr. Kamini Kapoor

Dr. Kamini Kapoor

Periodontist

Dr. Kapoor moved to New York when she was 12 years old. Her father worked for the U.S. Aid and was stationed in Afghanistan, which is where she was born. She decided to be a dentist when she was 10 years old because she really liked her dentist. When she was 15 years old she decided to become a periodontist because her mom had periodontal disease and refused to see a periodontist. This urge to help her mom has bloomed into a career that she is passionate about. She treats every patient with the same care that she gave to her mom.

Dr. Kapoor now lives on a ranch near Austin, Texas. Her other passion is cooking. She has started a cooking blog (cookingwithloveandspices.com) and teaches cooking classes. She is using her cooking venture to support the local producers and food bank.

Dr. Kapoor has 27 years of experience in periodontal care. She cares for our patients in Austin and in the valley. She has been serving our patients since 2011.

After graduating from Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in 1986, Dr. Kapoor completed a one year hospital residency at the Ann Arbor V. A., and then a three year periodontal internship at Ohio State University.

Since her post-doctoral graduation in 1990, Dr. Kapoor continues to take advanced courses to keep up with the latest technology and procedures in the field of periodontics.
