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.
The International College of Dentists is the pre-eminent honorary organization of the world’s outstanding dentists. The International College of Dentists (ICD or “College”) has been honoring the world’s leading dentists since 1920. Dentists who have been awarded the prestigious title of FICD (Fellow, International College of Dentists) are currently located in 122 countries worldwide.
Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only. A nominated dentist must pass a rigorous, peer review process leading to the recognition of the individual’s “outstanding professional achievement, meritorious service, high ethical standards and dedication to the continued progress of dentistry for the benefit of humankind. A small fraction of 1% of America’s most respected dentists have been invited to be a Fellow of this College
Dr. Sirisha has over 10 years of clinical experience practicing at clinics in India, Illinois, and the Milwaukee area. She accrued comprehensive training 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 involving sinus, 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 has the least impact on the body. She uses the safest, biologically compatible, evidence-based cutting-edge procedures in her clinic. Dr.Sirisha stresses “prevention over intervention” and advises 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 young girls.
