Though he enjoyed his role as a teacher, he views himself first and foremost as a clinician. Due to the increasing demands of his private practice, he quit his faculty position in March 2010 and has been exclusively in private practice since then.Ever since he started his practice in June 2000, his emphasis has been on achieving clinical excellence in all aspects of orthodontic care for both children and adults.

His interest in orthodontic treatment of adults motivated him to take special training in lingual orthodontics, (which deals with putting braces on the inside surface of teeth) and also clear aligners to provide esthetic and invisible treatment options to his patients.
He is a certified provider of both “Invisalign” (arguably the most advanced clear aligner system worldwide) as well as “Incognito” (among the most highly rated customized lingual orthodontic appliance system globally). He is one of the first providers of fully customized “Insignia” appliance in India.
