Dr. Gupta, while not a native Texan, made it his home in 2021 after 20 years of living in New York.
Dr. Gupta’s career as a dentist started long before receiving any formal dental education. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he throughout his high school and college years was a dental assistant for his own family dentist. There he learned about the field of dentistry, but more importantly the competence and responsibility it takes to become a successful medical professional. He strives to deliver the best care possible, in the most comfortable manner.
Dr. Gupta moved to New York in 2001 to attend college at New York Institute of Technology as a member of a 7-year BS/DO program. But while attending, he reverted to the idea of his original career passion, dentistry. After graduation from NYIT, he attended the famed New York University College of Dentistry to obtain his dental degree. While in dental school, he served as a member of the class ethics committee, and also as a student mentor for underclassmen. Following his graduation from NYUCD, he went on to join the hospital staff at Nassau University Medical Center, a level one trauma center, where he completed his general practice residency. Since then, in adding further advancements to his scope of practice, Dr. Gupta has had additional training in dental implants and prosthetics, oral surgery, and cosmetics.
Dr. Gupta tries to give back to his community through dentistry. He believes in giving back and paying it forward, because at some point, someone did it for him. He has been volunteering with RAM-Remote Area Medical since 2012, offering dental services in rural America for those who do not have access to dental care. He also tries to provide help in his local temple community in any way possible, even if not dental-related.
In his personal life, Dr. Gupta likes to keep busy outside of the office as well, mostly spending time with his wife and daughter. He likes to cycle, travel, and cook. He’s a car and sports lover, and is always supporting his hometown Pittsburgh sports teams.
