Meet Your Local Dentist

Dr. Padmaja Mutyala, DDS, Diplomate ABDSM

My name is Padmaja, and I come from a family of physicians and surgeons. My dad was a surgeon in North Carolina. One of my older brothers is a urological surgeon and the other a physician. I chose to be a dentist because I always wanted to be different and was fascinated by the dexterity and precision required to work in such a small, delicate space. I trained for 8 years as a prosthodontist before moving to the US and practicing in Minnesota for 2 years. In 2005, I finally moved to California and established my dental practice in Bakersfield. I became a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine in 2020.

I stay up to date on the latest advancements in dentistry to provide the best possible treatments to my patients. However, being a dentist is not just about working with teeth. I value the relationships and trust I have with my patients and lend them a keen ear, understanding how they feel and what they say. Over the years, I’m glad to say that from children to seniors, everyone is comfortable in my dental chair.
When I’m not practicing dentistry, I enjoy dancing and music, having trained in classical dance as a child. I relax and recharge by gardening, cooking or traveling.
