Dr. Kaushal Gandhi has been in love with the dental profession for more than a decade now – first as a Dental Hygienist and then as a General Dentist. She received both her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene and her Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry.
While in dental school, Dr. Gandhi served as the Student Body President and was actively involved in several other leadership roles and volunteer activities. Dr. Gandhi has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors for her scholarship, leadership, and volunteer work and has also served as a fellow for the North Carolina Albert Schweitzer Fellowship Program. She spends a lot of her time volunteering both locally in North Carolina and has traveled internationally to Uganda, Brazil, and India for outreach and exchange programs. Dr. Gandhi is also a member of the American Dental Association, the North Carolina Dental Society, the International Dental Implant Association, and likes to keep up with the continuing education in dentistry to best serve her patients.
In her free time, Dr. Gandhi loves to travel the world, try out different cuisines, beat her family in their Fantasy Football League, cheer on her favorite Tarheels at basketball games, and speculate why Game of Thrones ended the way it did.
“I truly love dentistry and am happiest when I am helping my patients gain a better smile whether it is through education, prevention, or treatment. I am a lifelong learner and love that dentistry allows me to help people improve their oral and overall health and have fun in the process! My passion for making a positive impact on my patients lives while making dentistry relaxing and fun for them is what inspired me to establish a brand new practice in the area I grew up in! I look forward to meeting all of you at Mint Leaf Dentistry!” – Dr. Kaushal Gandhi
