My name is Dr. Chandra Panchani, and I am so happy to be a part of the My Children’s Dentist team! I am a foreign-trained dentist, having graduated from Temple University’s Maurice H. Kornberg School of dentistry (cum laude). I continued on to receive Advanced Education in TMD and Orofacial Pain from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, as well as extensive education in clear aligner therapy.
The knowledge I’ve gained in regards to orofacial pain and TMD helps me to understand if a patient’s discomfort in the head and neck region is related to teeth or something more than that. Hence, my patients get an evaluation of the entire head and neck region and not just the oral cavity.
Correcting misaligned teeth without having a metallic smile is one of the greatest advances in dentistry. I am very excited to help patients benefit from this innovation by keeping myself updated with the advances in aligner treatments.
I grew up in India and moved to the United Sates in 2014. Since then, I have been residing in the Parsippany area, along with my husband and daughter. When I’m not at work, I enjoy cycling with my daughter, cooking with my husband, watching Indian movies.
I am passionate about providing a positive and fun dental experience for my patients. Dentists are not very liked people but I strive to be liked. I have the confidence and patience, which helps me put my patients at ease when they see me. I believe in preventive dentistry and educating children and their families about healthy oral care habits. I look forward to meeting you and your family soon!
