Our Practice

We are a small, family oriented dental practice (one of the oldest in Tempe) that is committed to restoring and enhancing the beauty of your smile! It all started out with a dedicated and caring mom of two, Dr. Dhanlaxmi (Dr. D), back in 1980. She opened her own dental practice at a time when it was a male-dominated profession. Amazingly, she started out as the first female dentist to establish a solo dental practice in Tempe, Arizona. Her vast experience throughout the years has been able to provide our new and existing patients with an exceptional quality of dental care.
Then in 1997 her son, Dr. Birju Raj (Dr. Raj) united with his mom in the practice of dentistry by joining the dental practice. Thus was created a unique
mother and son dental practice. This added to the already high standards and uncompromising excellence of Dr. D's existing practice and brought with it a whole new and fresh approach. Together as a team, this excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide quality dental services to patients of all ages and their families with state of the art technology.
