Meet Dr. Kavitha Reddy
Dr. Reddy, a native of Maryland, attended Howard University's accelerated medical/dental program. She then continued on to the University of Maryland School of Dentistry where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa and received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
Dr. Reddy completed a general practice residency program at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York, where she gained experience in head and neck trauma, oral pathology and cancers of the head and neck, orthognathic surgery, and interdisciplinary orthodontic and pediatric treatment. She received her orthodontic specialty certificate and master’s degree in oral biology from the University of Detroit Mercy.
Her orthodontic residency provided an excellent foundation in early interdisciplinary treatment, surgical cases, and the Roth concept of tooth movement combined with TMJ analysis. This then became the forefront of the practice and then evolved into using the concept of a friction-free bracketing system that is currently using in their practice today.
Dr. Reddy maintains professional memberships in:
- American Dental Association
- American Association of Orthodontists
- Maryland State Society of Orthodontists
- Middle Atlantic Society of Orthodontists
- Maryland State Dental Association
- Frederick County Dental Society
- Seattle Study Club
- Francis Scott Key Dental Study Club
Dr. Reddy currently resides in Bethesda with her husband Roger, daughter Asha, and fur baby Kolby. A resident of Maryland for more than 40 years, Dr. Reddy loves this area and all it has to offer, from museums, parks, and recreation to the diversity of its people.
In her free time, Dr. Reddy enjoys the outdoors, including tennis, skiing, running, and hiking. Her passions are cooking, reading, and exercise—she’s always on the go! But what truly makes her happy is her family, her practice, and her dear friends.
