Update From Northwood Dental
All of us at Northwood Dental wish everyone the best of health and safety in these challenging times.
As part of the Governor's mandate and the recent Pinellas County 'safer at home' initiative, our current hours of operation have been adjusted and many of you may have already been contacted to postpone your dental services.
Other patient services are still being provided in an altered schedule designed for the safety of you, our patients, and for the safety of our Northwood Dental personnel.
We remain ready to care for your dental concerns and are making attempts to send out personalized communications regarding all present and future appointments.
If you need to speak with us in the meantime, please call/text 727-797-5161 (it is vital you leave a voicemail if we are unable to take the call) or send an email to: OfficeManager@northwood-dental.com. Our patients are our top priority and we are doing our best to respond ASAP.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.
The Northwood Dental Team
Meet Saravana Karunagaran BDS, MS, FAGD
Simply stated, Dr. Karunagaran (“Dr. K.”) has a passion for dentistry. It is not an exaggeration to say that his favorite “hobby” is to acquire advanced training and staying up-to-date on the latest, cutting edge advancements in implant surgery and restorations.
After graduating from dental school in Chennai, South India in 2001, he went on to earn a Master’s degree in biomaterials from the State University of New York at Buffalo; then completed two years of hospital based, advanced general dentistry training with special focus on oral surgery at Louisiana State University in New Orleans. He followed that with two additional years of postgraduate training in implant dentistry at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and at the Comprehensive Implant Residency Program in Bessemer, Alabama.
Before joining Northwood Dental in 2013, Dr. K. practiced in central Washington at a large multi-clinic facility where he served as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Dentistry treating a wide range of patients from all walks of life while also teaching new dentists advanced skills. Holding true to form, Dr. K. also served as an affiliate faculty member for both the University of Washington, School of Dentistry and for the Oregon Health and Sciences University, School of Dentistry.
He currently holds fellowship status in the Academy of General Dentistry and is working towards his Mastership. He is also a member of the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. K is one of Tampa Bay’s premier dental implant specialists and is also certified in providing Invisalign Clear Aligner treatments.
In his spare time, Dr. K enjoys playing tennis and spending time with his wife, Sammy, who is also a dentist. In addition, they, along with their daughter, Tara, enjoy the family-friendly Tampa Bay area.
