Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
As a child, Dr. Chougule was the only member of her family who struggled with a lot of dental problems. This led to her becoming very familiar with the dentist’s office, and she even had braces for several years. While she initially wanted to become a medical doctor, everything about dentistry felt much more fascinating. She was attracted to all the cool gadgets and tools used by her dentist in particular – all her doctor had was a stethoscope and a prescription pad! She changed her mind on her future profession right then and there and ended up never looking back.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After attending college in India, Dr. Chougule completed her Doctor of Dental Medicine at the University of Connecticut, followed by an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency.
