Hi, I’m Dr. Pragna Malkaram, a dentist dedicated to creating beautiful smiles! Originally from India, I’m thrilled to be part of Viva Smiles and have the privilege of serving the amazing communities around Austin.
From an early age, I noticed what a profound impact a radiant smile could have on a person. After seeing the confidence a smile can bring, I was inspired to ensure that everyone has a smile that they could proudly show off. I pursued this interest by completing my bachelor degree in India where my fascination for dentistry flourished even more. And after moving to the United States my passion for dentistry was fueled further and I was motivated to pursue dentistry as a way to bring joy and happiness to others through their dental health. I realized that dentistry wasn’t just a career choice but also a way to bring happiness and comfort. After completing my Bachelor’s studies, I went to graduate from dental school at University at Buffalo school of Dental Medicine with a DDS degree (Doctor of Dental Surgery).
