Dr. Pragnya Sheelam
Dr. Pragnya Sheelam was born in India before moving to the United States. She obtained her dental license from the University of Minnesota. She decided to start working with children because she has always had a special place in her heart for them and is her best when she is around them. Dr. Sheelam feels priviledged working with kiddos and creating a positive impact in their oral health.
Dr. Sheelam is a member of the American Dental Association and the Washington State Dental Association. It is her mission to provide the best treatment possible and promote optimal oral health through education and relationships established with her patients. When Dr. Sheelam is not working, she is spending time with her husband and their two children, exploring new places and learning how to do yoga.
