She is an active member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS), and The Indian Dental Association. Dr. Handa's strength is rooted in the combination of her skills as both a cosmetic and restorative dentist.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Handa "Dentistry to us is much more than fillings, charts, and x-rays. We have chosen it as a path to give you the opportunity to see yourself differently. The outcome is more than cosmetic; it's a moment when you understand what it's like to feel good about yourself. This is the first step towards achieving your full potential. It is through dentistry that we have been given the opportunity to touch so many lives and see the results of this empowering approach to complete oral, mental, emotional, and physical transformation.

We will get to know your unique circumstances and goals so that we can understand what you need most from us. We will always take the time to sit down and explain the options for treatment and explore the therapies, in an individualized and systemic way, that are available to reduce risk in the future. Together we assess your health needs, choices, and desires and then formulate a comprehensive plan for taking you from where you are today to where you want to be."
