Deepti Karhade, DMD, MS
Meet Dr. Karhade
My name is Dr. Deepti Karhade and I look forward to welcoming your family to Pediatric Dental Specialists of Needham. I received my DMD from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and completed residency in pediatric dentistry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am incredibly passionate about providing our patients with the highest level of care and strive to make your child’s experience unique and every visit a fun, positive and educational experience for the entire family! In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and our golden retriever puppy, Simba, travelling and cooking.
