Dentistry is part of Dr. Vakil’s Legacy – she worked at her family’s dental office during her undergraduate studies at the University of Miami. It was in this family-run office where her passion for dentistry blossomed. Seeing what a profound effect dentistry could have in people’s lives inspired her! After graduating with honors holding a Bachelor in Science, she went on to attend Boston University’s Goldman School of Dental Medicine, earning her DMD with honors, and completed a residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry.
Like all the doctors in The Woodlands Dental Group, Dr. Vakil is never satisfied with resting on her former achievements – she respects her patients too much for that. Instead, she maintains active membership in the Academy of General Dentistry and attends courses and seminars to keep up with the latest advancements in dentistry. She loves applying newfound knowledge to help her patients discover how comfortable and effective dentistry can actually be, and believes that when plenty of time is taken to listen to patients and meet their needs, incredible things can happen!
Dr. Vakil, her husband, and their two sons are proud to call The Woodlands home. When she is not helping people smile, Dr. Vakil enjoys spending time cooking for friends and family, freestyle dancing with her kids, traveling, and reading.
