Dr. Anushka Prabhu, a native of Plainsboro, NJ comes from a family of dentists. However, she discovered her interest in dentistry after volunteering in the local hospital clinic during high school. She enjoyed the artistry required to make a beautiful smile. She thus began her educational path. Dr. Anushka graduated Magna Cum Laude from Binghamton University where she majored in Biology and minored in African studies.
After enduring the frigid winters of Upstate New York, Dr. Anushka moved to sunny Florida to pursue her dream of becoming a dentist. At Nova Southeastern University, she enrolled in a dual degree program where she pursued her dental degree during the day and her masters in public health at night.
It was during her community rotations in local elementary schools where she realized she wanted to continue her training and specialize in pediatric dentistry. She loved chatting with kids, making them feel comfortable in the dental chair while also teaching them how to keep their teeth healthy for the rest of their lives.
Missing her four seasons and her winter sports, Dr. Anushka moved to The Bronx to continue her education at Jacobi Hospital. There, she learned techniques to treat children of all ages and people with special health care needs.
In her spare time, Dr. Anushka loves spending time outdoors with her dog, Duke!
