Pain free dentistry in a warm and friendly setting that is both comfortable and state-of- the- art, that utilizes the best materials and sterilization protocols. Dr Krishnan and his staff take pride in treating every patient based on their individual needs!

What differentiates us is our insightful approach to the patient’s problems, where we don’t use a prefabricated approach to treatment, but instead develop treatment plans that fit the patient, addresses their needs, and takes their value judgment into consideration. Ultimately, the patient will decide which treatment is best for them; our job is rather to guide them, give them the statistical probabilities in achieving success. We don’t treat every patient with the same problem the same, as they all have different needs, expectations and financial restraints.

  • Dr Krishnan’s Experience – He has been a practicing dentist for the past 11 years both in the US and abroad. He has a gentle touch with outstanding clinical skills.
  • Control – Since we deliver all aspects of care, finances, outcome, time estimates all are well controlled and predictable.

Established in 2014.

Insight dentistry is a brand new dental office designed from ground up in collaboration with some of the dental industry’s best architects and contractors keeping the patient experience a top priority. Every little aspect of the practice is designed so that the patient is treated in a comfortable setting whereby they are able to view their treatment plan and are free to ask questions in a non rushed approach. Each treatment room has closed glass doors for patient privacy during care with overhead monitors for entertainment and noise canceling headphones for their use. We use electric dental hand-pieces that are extremely quiet and far more efficient that traditional hand-pieces. We use the Isolite system that allows simultaneous suction of saliva, illuminates the oral cavity and allows you to comfortably open the mouth with its inbuilt mouth prop without the need of the dental assistants suction unit. Most importantly the staff at insight dentistry will make you feel at home!
