Apurva Dabak, BDS, MPH

DDS Candidate Class'23

UCSF School of Dentistry


Hey there, thank you for your interest in this website. I am a General Dentist, a passionate oral health researcher and, a cook.

I am originally from Mumbai, India, currently residing in San Francisco, US.

I graduated from UC Berkeley School of Public Health with an MPH (Master of Public Health) in 2020. I brought this experience to the COVID-19 response team of Santa Clara County to manage a team of contact tracers. I was privileged and honored to implement the leadership and public health training I received from the school to contribute to an ongoing battle against the pandemic.

Whilst public health is an integral part of my zeal, dentistry is at the core. My pursuit of dental excellence landed me at UCSF School of Dentistry for an Advanced Standing Clinical Program in July 2021.

I am wrapping up the second quarter of DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery).

Apart from the professional life, I am married to my best friend, Mr. K and we have a lovely puppy, KayBee who brings smiles to our faces every day. I enjoy cooking, practicing yoga, and everything about food/lifestyle and hence the workouts :P

My journey from a small village, Titwala, India to San Francisco, USA inspires me to support, mentor, and participate in other dental aspirants' journeys. If you are looking for a helping hand and a selfless friend, this is for you. Subscribe to my newsletter below and let's get in touch!
