Dr. Ranju Bhasin was born and raised right here in Maryland. She sees her love for the field of dentistry as natural and organic — she always knew she wanted a career in healthcare, and she loves helping people feel more confident about themselves.

After graduating from dental school at the University of Maryland, she completed her general practice residency in Boston at the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Now that she's back in Maryland with her own practice, Dr. Bhasin feels honored to bring compassionate, warm dental care to Gaithersburg.
