Dr. Anoop Bawa is a compassionate general and cosmetic dentist with over 20 years of experience across diverse dental specialties. She enjoys developing dental products, has taught dentistry and has owned several successful private dental practices, including Bawa Dentistry in Centreville and Manassas, VA.
Geography is no challenge to Dr. Bawa, who has practiced dentistry in New Jersey, Canada, and California. She attended McGill University in Montreal, Canada and was accepted to Tufts University School of Dental Medicine with a merit scholarship and began her dental school journey in 1992 at the early age of 20.
Upon graduation in 1996, Dr. Bawa went on to pursue a General Practice Residency in Hospital Dentistry at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Paterson, NJ (affiliated with Seton Hall University School of Graduate Medical Education). There she focused on the surgical aspects of dentistry as well as medically compromised patients.
‘‘Dr. Anoop Bawa is one of the most humane, patient, and personable doctors I have ever encountered. This is saying A LOT for the dentistry profession, because I am not aware of ANY human excited about another person using sharp, drilling objects in one's mouth.
