Dr. Vakil’s interest in dentistry was ignited during her undergraduate studies at the University of Miami. She worked in a family friend’s 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.
Dr. Vakil maintains active membership in the Academy of General Dentistry, attends courses and seminars to keep up with the latest advancements in dentistry and has completed well over 500 hours of continuing education. 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 children are proud to call The Woodlands home. When she is not helping people smile, Dr. Vakil enjoys spending time with her family and friends, freestyle dancing with her kids, traveling, and reading.
