Dr. Varsha Ganessingh knew that she wanted to be a dentist at a very young age. At the tender age of six years old, she would use her fingers to wiggle and extract her deciduous teeth with ease, almost as if it were second nature. Also, her aunt, who was a dentist, inspired her to pursue dentistry as a career.
After graduating from the University of Florida in 2000, she attended Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine. Four years later, she graduated with her Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD) Degree. Shortly after, the City Beautiful came calling, and she has been practicing here in Orlando ever since.
In 2011, she started up her own practice, Oasis Dental, in downtown Orlando. She has consistently been voted annually by her peers as one of Orlando’s Top Dentists, since 2007. Dr. G (as her patients and staff call her), believes that dentistry should be practiced from the heart. A professor of hers years ago in dental school, mentioned in one of his lectures, that they needed to treat every patient as if it were their mother in the chair. Almost 15 years later, these words still reverberate in her head, and is the principle behind how she chooses to practice dentistry.
Dr. G loves all aspects of dentistry but gets a special fulfillment from cosmetic dentistry. She has witnessed patients go from being insecure and not wanting to smile, to being more confident and not wanting to stop smiling! This has changed a lot of patients’ lives for the better, and she loves that she is able to help make that happen.
In her spare time, Dr. G enjoys spending time with her husband Raj and her five year old twin daughters, Arya and Raya. She is an avid animal lover, and has a pomeranian Sassy, a cat Tux, and two conures Phoeny and Pyro.
