All professionals at Little Harpeth Children's Dentistry maintain the highest levels of accreditation and pursue ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in the dental and medical fields.
Dr. Purohit comes extremely qualified having completed her general dental training and pediatric subspecialty training at Virginia Commonwealth University summa cum laude in Richmond, VA, one of the pre-eminent dental education institutes in the United States. She is one of the few pediatric dental providers in the greater Nashville area to receive board certification in her field, as well as national Diplomate status, assuring patients and their families that they will be receiving the best care possible.
Prior to moving to Nashville, Dr. Purohit enjoyed a successful practice in Springfield, Illinois where she was heavily involved not only with patient care but in shaping policies that help guide other dentists in the field. She was the first pediatric dentist to serve on Southern Illinois University School of Medicine’s Plastic Surgery Cleft, Lip and Palate Craniofacial team (ranked #2 in the USA). She was a member of several dental organizations regionally and statewide and served as President of the local chapter of the Illinois State Dental Society and received the Sullivan Leadership Award upon the completion of her term from the state board. In addition, Dr. Purohit spent much of her time with various community organizations, serving on the board for several charitable events including the March of Dimes and St. Judes Hospital fundraisers.
After moving to Nashville, Dr. Purohit spent some time as faculty training dental residents for NYU in a Pediatric Dental Residency program. Since her tenure began there, she has trained over a dozen pediatric dentists in the latest techniques in oral sedation, hospital dentistry, and clinical practices. Dr. Purohit maintains hospital privileges at the Monroe Carroll Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and the Dental Surgery Specialty Center and looks forward to serving as Bellevue's local pediatric dentist.
