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.
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.) 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 performed 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 the specialty. 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, and provide detailed case reports on treatments for a broad range of patient problems. Board certification is not required to be an orthodontist, but is a unique honor that follows a process in 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 empowers him to provide his patients with the best and most current care.
