While not a native Texan, Dr. Gupta made Houston his home in 2021 after 20 years of studying, working, and living in New York.
His interest and involvement in dentistry started long before receiving any formal dental education. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he throughout his high school years and college summers was a dental assistant for his own family dentist. There he learned much about the field of dentistry, but more importantly the competence and responsibility it takes to become a successful medical professional. He now strives to deliver the best care possible, in the most comfortable manner.
Dr. Gupta moved from Pittsburgh to New York in 2001 to attend college at New York Institute of Technology where he completed a B.S. in Life Sciences in 2005. He then went on to the famed New York University College of Dentistry for his dental degree. New York City was the perfect place to experience all walks of life, and also train with the most current and modern aspects of dentistry. While in dental school, he served as a member of the ethics committee, and as a student mentor to underclassmen.
Following graduation from NYUCD in 2009, he joined the hospital staff at Nassau University Medical Center, a level one trauma center. He completed a general practice residency in 2010, with program emphases on oral surgery and comprehensive care. Since then, in adding further advancements to his way of practice, he has had additional training in dental implants and prosthetics, oral surgery, and cosmetics.
Dr. Gupta enjoys and believes in giving back to his community outside of his job as well. He has been volunteering with RAM-Remote Area Medical since 2012, offering dental services in rural America to individuals who do not have access to care. He also provides help to his local temple community in any way possible, even if not dental related.
Dr. Gupta is married to his wife Kavita, and they have two children. He likes to cycle, travel, and cook. He’s a car and sports enthusiast, and is always supporting his hometown Pittsburgh sports teams.
