Meet Dr. Deepak Gupta

Dr. Gupta did not know he wanted to be an orthodontist until after working for a year at IBM as a computer engineer. During his time at IBM he realized that he wanted to be in a profession that gave him the opportunity to work with people in his community, and help give them a beautiful smile they would enjoy for the rest of their lives. Dr. Gupta loves the field of orthodontics and the way it has allowed him to use his computer engineering background to give his patients the most advanced orthodontic treatment.

Education and Professional Achievements

Dr. Gupta was raised in Michigan and attended the University of Michigan where he graduated summa cum laude with a B.S.E. in computer engineering. He was named a Lucent Technologies Scholar. After graduation he worked for IBM as a computer engineer. It was during his time with IBM that he realized his true calling was dentistry. Dr. Gupta scored in the 99th percentile on his dental admissions test and was accepted to the prestigious Harvard School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA.

While at Harvard, Dr. Gupta performed seminal research that was published in The American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, the leading peer-reviewed orthodontic journal.

After completing his Dental Medical Doctorate (D.M.D.) degree at Harvard and scoring one of the highest scores in the nation on his dental board exam, Dr. Gupta returned to the University of Michigan for a three-year residency to become a specialist in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. During his orthodontic residency, Dr. Gupta did research that examined the airway in cleft lip and cleft palate patients using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). He graduated from the University of Michigan with a Master of Science in orthodontics.

Dr. Gupta is not only a specialist in orthodontics but is board certified in orthodontics. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. Only about 25% of all orthodontists are board certified. Certification as a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics signifies a unique achievement — a large step beyond the three years of advanced education required for a dentist to become a specialist in orthodontics.

Candidates are required to demonstrate achievements in patient care, with detailed case reports on the treatment provided for a broad range of patient problems. Board certification is not required to be an orthodontist, but is a unique honor following a process by which an individual orthodontist is thoroughly examined by an expert panel with regard to orthodontic knowledge and clinical skills.

Dr. Gupta stays up to date on the latest advances in orthodontics by regularly attending national and international conferences. He is a member of the local chapter of the respected Seattle Study Club, in which he and other dental specialists and general dentists discuss complicated interdisciplinary cases.  Continuing education allows him to provide his patients with the best and most current care.

“Dr. Gupta & his staff are very professional and friendly and they always treated us like family. We have spent a year and a half with some incredible people who always welcomed us with smiles and positive attitudes. It was an amazing journey and now my son has a smile he loves! ”
“I lived with crooked teeth for 34 years and decided that I deserved to have a beautiful smile. I did a lot of research and from recommendations by my friends and a referral from my dentist I visited Dr. Gupta. After 14 months of Invisalign Dr. Gupta was able to transform my smile. I could not be happier with my decision have my treatment done at Gupta Orthodontics!”
“I visited several orthodontists before deciding to go to Gupta Orthodontics. Dr. Gupta’s qualifications were impressive (computer engineer turned orthodontist with a degree from Harvard!). I wanted to go to the best doctor for my daughter’s treatment and after the initial exam with Dr. Gupta we knew that this was the office for us. 18 months later the results have been truly life changing for my daughter. We are blessed to have found this office.”
“As an adult I had some anxiety about getting braces but Dr. Gupta always made me feel comfortable. I never felt out of place. They welcome you by name at every appointment. Dr. Gupta always listened carefully to any concerns I had and addressed them fully. I never felt like he was rushing me through my appointments and I love the fact that he is a perfectionist. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made.”
“I never thought it would be remotely possible to find an office such as this one! Dr. Gupta's office encompasses everything that we could have hoped for. We looked forward to our visits not only because of the VIP experience they gave us at every visit but also because of the amazing individuals that they have on their team! My kids and I feel very fortunate to have found them!”
