Sirisha Pulapaka, DDS
Dentist in Milwaukee, WI
Art of Dentistry
When Sirisha Pulapaka got her braces in middle school, little did she realize that she would spend her adult life striving to give others a confident, powerful and potent smile. The art and science of aesthetic restorative dentistry became her passion. She believes smiles go beyond esthetics and have a significant psychological and emotional impact.
Dr. Sirisha Pulapaka was born and raised in India. She received her bachelor’s degree in Dental Surgery from the M.G.R. Medical University in India. She completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at New York University, and a mini residency at the Odyssey House, NY.
Dr. Sirisha has over 10 years of clinical experience practicing at clinics in India, Illinois and the Milwaukee area. She completed comprehensive training courses in Occlusion and Aesthetic design, and a fellowship in dental implant placement. With vast experience, a skillful hand and a caring nature, she can perform advanced dental procedures such as root canal therapies, dental implant placements, complicated tooth extractions, and Invisalign.
Dr. Sirisha believes that patients deserve the time it takes to provide them with a comprehensive examination and personalized treatment options. She views the mouth as the gateway and a mirror to the entire body, and hence educates her patients that prevention and treatment of oral disease is an important element of wellness.
She embraces the philosophy of holistic dentistry by using alternative therapies in combination with traditional dental science which have least impact on the body. She uses safest, biologically compatible, evidence based cutting-edge procedures in her clinic. Dr.Sirisha stresses “prevention over intervention” and advices her patients to keep their natural teeth for longer.
She lives in Brookfield with her husband (also a dentist and a professor of dental public health at Marquette University School of Dentistry) and two little ones ages 7 and 4.

Art of Dentistry
Art of Dentistry is more than a name for Dr. Paul Scholl's dental practice. It's an avocation for his lifelong love of art. From an early age, he had an affinity for drawing, coloring, painting, creating, crafting and building. His first award came in second grade for a poster contest followed by a Hallmark award and two Milwaukee Journal art calendar contests. As a proud member of the League of Milwaukee Artists, artwork was juried and shown at local museums and exhibits. Many of Dr. Paul's paintings are exhibited at Art of Dentistry. Click on "Portfolio" here to view more artwork. Dr. Paul also thrives on fixing and repairing things around the office (including distressed mouths:-) and at home. These attributes along with a mild disposition and the ability to be a good listener and communicator make Dr. Paul a good fit for the dental profession.

In 2005, Dr. Paul completed a very comprehensive course (340 hours) in Implant Dentistry through the Medical College of Georgia.
