Meet Dr. Alka Panwar
I am Alka Panwar and I am excited to join the team at NOVA Perio Specialists.
I was born and raised in Haryana, India where I completed my Bachelor of Dental Surgery from SGT Dental College Hospital and Research Institute, MDU and practiced as a general dentist before moving to the United States. I completed my Periodontal and Implant training from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine along with my Masters in Dental Science degree. During this time, I also presented posters, lectures, seminars, and taught student doctors. I also completed a one-year Periodontics-Prosthodontics fellowship certification before enrolling in the periodontics residency program.
As a periodontist I make every effort to provide the highest quality care in a friendly, comfortable, and compassionate environment. I perform both surgical and non-surgical procedures to give each patient the best possible outcome from a personalized treatment plan. Giving back to the community also gives me great pleasure and I have performed voluntary community service programs such as MEGA Polio Camp, MEGA health check up camp, multiple dental camps in government schools, and blood donation camps.
In my free time I enjoy reading history books, cooking, running and exercising.
I am a member of the American Academy of Periodontology and the American Dental Association.
