Dr. Kishore V. Damodaran, D.D.S. is originally from Mahtomedi, MN. After attending Case Western Reserve University for his bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering, he achieved a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.
When asked why he chose to pursue a career in dentistry, this is what Dr. Kishore shared: "Truthfully, I was a poorly behaved dental patient and had a lot of fillings when I was young - and my mom is a dentist! Since I had a lot of dental appointments to repair my teeth, I spent quite a few hours in the dental chair and office, and I became comfortable with the environment. During one of my holiday breaks in college, I assisted my mom at a free dental clinic in the Twin Cities. It was in those moments of helping people in need that and I knew dentistry was the career field for me. I was confident that becoming a dentist would allow me to build relationships with patients, use my craft to deliver healthy and beautiful smiles, and most importantly alleviate pain and discomfort. I'm looking forward to serving patients at Gentling Dental Care."
Dr. Kishore's mother and fiancé are practicing dentists and his sister is enrolled in dental school as well - there must be a lot of 'tooth talk' at family gatherings! His favorite part of the dental field is creating trusting relationships with his patients and learning new techniques to enhance his skills and service. When he's not in the office seeing patients, you can find Dr. Kishore golfing, playing tennis, hiking, watching the Vikings play, and visiting new breweries. The words he lives by: love all, serve all.
