Dr. Anika Vellore joined the Smile Design Centre team in December 2015, and we are so excited to have her! A Maryland native, Dr. Vellore is excited to be practicing dentistry in her home state, in fact, she earned her dental degree from our very own University of Maryland (go Terps!). She did spend some time away from home earning her bachelor’s degree from NYU and completing her General Practice Residency at a Rehabilitation Center in California where her focus was on treating patients with mental and physical disabilities. Longing for home and family, she moved back to her home town of Gaithersburg and quickly decided that the Smile Design Centre was the place to be. Dentally, she’s focused on helping patients live a healthier life, one dental visit at a time.
During her down time you’ll catch Dr. Vellore in a yoga class or on a cardio machine. She’s driven to eat well and live well… Although she does enjoy baking the occasional treat (her banana bread is mmm mmm mmmmm!). The Washington Redskin’s have a loyal fan for life with her and she’s never met a pooch she didn’t love.
We can’t wait for you to meet her!
