Dr. Kumra's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kumra "MEET DR. BOB KUMRA Every day I walk into work, I realize just how lucky I am to be an orthodontist—it is the greatest job in the world! It took a lot of help and hard work to get where I am today, but the mere fact that I am able to build a personal relationship with each one of my patients makes it worth it in every way. I honestly feel that my patients are really my friends, and I just happen to be lucky enough to be creating amazing smiles for them! My passion for orthodontics exudes in everything I do. I find it exciting when I see my patients smile bigger and brighter as their teeth are getting into better alignment. I find it extremely rewarding to see someone's self-confidence grow as they are improving themselves and their smile. Education and Continuing Education Bachelor of Arts – University of Virginia Doctorate of Dental Surgery – Howard University College of Dentistry Orthodontic Certification – Howard University College of Dentistry Learning is a lifelong commitment, and one I am excited to make. By immersing myself in the profession of orthodontics and dentistry as a whole, I can ensure that I provide the best care to my patients! I attend a variety of continuing education, throughout the world and locally, to learn from the best and brightest minds in dentistry and orthodontics. Professional Affiliations American Association of Orthodontics Southern Association of Orthodontists Northern Virginia Dental Society DC Dental Society Outside the Office My time outside the office is spent either running or playing basketball. I am a huge sports fan as well, especially of the Washington Wizards! Having spent my entire life here in Washington, DC, I owe so much of who I am and what I've accomplished to my community. I knew I had people that cared about me. Not just family members, but people in the community who wanted to see me succeed. I had so much help to get me where I am today and cannot wait to give back."
