Dr. Venkatraman Duraiappa, DDS
DDS: Dr. M.G.R. Medical University (2008)
As a positive and personable dentist, with more than 20 years of experience as a sole practitioner and associate dentist, I am recognized for my ability to provide a comfortable, quality, and state-of-the-art general and cosmetic dentistry experience for each patient. I’ve made it my career ambition to earn the respect and trust of not only patients, but peers, dental lab professionals, specialists, and suppliers. Having owned successful practices for the last 13 years, I am now ready to leverage that experience to take on a supporting role of an associate dentist for Gentle Dentistry in Cottage Grove and other locations.
I graduated in 1998 with one year of residency. Having worked in Oral Surgery hospital for few years and teaching Periodontics to Dental students in India, I moved to USA and got license to practice in Minnesota in 2004. I am passionate about Oral surgery, Implants and Endodontics. I keep abreast of the latest technologies and advancements in patient care. I have a license in IV sedation.
Other than dentistry my passion are my two boys and watching them play hockey. I have two cats!
