Dr. Aravinda Shetty received his dental degree from the Government Dental College and Research Institute in 1974. He was a top-ranked student and one of the youngest dental graduates in his class. In the years following his graduation, he worked as a staff dental surgeon in a private ENT surgical center while establishing his own private practice in Bangalore. After several years, he ventured to the United States, where he has been in private practice since 1980.
In his clinical practice, Dr. Shetty has operated and managed general dentists, oral surgeons, periodontists and orthodontists while also training many junior dentists. He currently consults for several dental practices where he provides advanced planning and delivery on many complex cases. In his more than 40 years of clinical experience, he has practiced all fields of dentistry, including cosmetic and implant dentistry, surgical endodontics, oral surgical procedures, orthopedic gnathology, and occlusal rehabilitation. In his free time, Dr. Shetty likes to keep up to date on the current trends in implantology, tissue culture and 3D visualization of diagnostic images.
Outside of his clinical practice, Dr. Shetty has consulted for and was a part of the City of Hope Head and Neck Oncology Team. He has also been an active member and fellow of the American Institute of Oral Biology (AIOB), where he previously held the position of Chair of the Advisory Board. Through his participation with the AIOB, he was fortunate enough to gain knowledge of firsthand research work done by various medical researchers and clinicians who are pioneers in their fields: Nobel laureate Arthur Kroneberg, MD, who researched enzymatic biosynthesis of nucleic acid; Stanley Pruisner, MD, who researched prion research; Marshall Urist, MD, who researched bone morphogenic protein; and Charles Vacanti, MD, who researched tissue engineering, just to name a few.
