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.

Dr. Dau went to college at Willamette University in Salem, OR. where he met his future educator and anthropologist wife, Audrey. Dr. Dau and wife frequently travel to Central America, Southeast Asia and Audrey’s native country, France for adventure-filled vacations and cultural trips.

Praised by friends and family for his excellent cooking skills, Dr. Dau is at his best in the kitchen where he’ll spend hours experimenting and improving dishes from around the world. Foodist, wine connoisseur and talented dancer, Dr. Dau puts much pride and passion into his multi-sensorial hobbies. At home, he is always entertaining guests with stories and jokes, and readily engages young and old on a broad range of news and topics of interest to his guests, so much that he carries the title at home of “pockets of knowledge.”

Dr. Dau received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Columbia University in the City of New York and his Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study at Boston University. After a long stint on the East Coast, he is happy to be close to family again. At Smiles 4 Kids, he continues to provide the best possible care to all of his patients and make them feel comfortable and at home in the dental office.
