Poonam B. Wadhwani DDS


As a patient, it’s important to realize that there are different approaches to dentistry. One can either view the mouth as a collection of individual teeth, or as an "organ" to be treated and cared for, as a whole.

Dr. Poonam B. Wadhwani practices the latter. She understands that an integrated approach significantly improves the long-term health of your mouth. She emphasizes that one should not view dental wellness as disconnected from total body wellness.

In order to best support her patients, Dr. Wadhwani actively stays current on the most recent developments in dentistry. She is a graduate of the Kois Center; a top teaching institute in Seattle that attracts dentists from all over the world. The Kois Center provides dentists with predictable, evidence-based dental systems that enable them to deliver the highest level of patient care.

Dr. Wadhwani believes that good dentistry doesn't have to be impersonal. She provides professional service in an environment that is warm and inviting. At Serene Dental, visits focus on prevention and risk management to maintain health.

If you are looking for a clinician:

  • who believes in putting your best interests ahead of her own agenda …
  • who will thoughtfully offer an array of sound options for your consideration …
  • who will respect your choice for whatever reason you make that choice …
  • who has thoughtfully and intentionally assembled a support team that will ensure your visits are comfortable and smooth …

Then Dr. Poonam B. Wadhwani at Serene Dental is the clinician for you.
