Dr. Bose, a skilled endodontist, is the Founder of Advanced Endodontics of New York.

Her clinical experiences include all phases of surgical and non-surgical endodontic therapy such as pediatric trauma management with apexification and apexogenesis, as well as re-treatment of posts, silver points, and separated instruments.

Prioritizing a warm, welcoming environment followed by gentle, painless dentistry, Dr. Bose’s treatment philosophy is to listen and take care of patients’ needs as the first and foremost. Her patients leave with positive feelings towards root canal therapy.

Growing up in India, Dr. Bose pursued her dream with a Master’s Degree in Dental Surgery (MDS), after which she practiced as a consultant endodontist in multiple private clinics. To further her dental career in the United States, she joined the Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree (DDS) program at the University of California in San Francisco, where she was elected as the Social Chair for the DDS Class of 2016, and AGD secretary and class representative for ASDA. She has also been awarded the Nguyen T. Nguyen Scholarship for Extraordinary Achievement and Excellence in Endodontics.

She followed her DDS degree from UCSF with the prestigious Master of Science in Medical Sciences (MMSc) program in Endodontics at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. 

Additionally, Dr. Bose has completed an externship at Children’s Hospital of Boston, where she received extensive training in endodontics for the pediatric patient. She also has had comprehensive training in microsurgery at the Harvard School of Dental Surgery and performs endodontic microsurgery routinely. She was awarded the Dentsply Sirona Resident Award at the AAE 2019 in Montreal for her case presentation on autotransplantation of teeth.

Certified to perform the Gentle Wave, Dr. Bose stays up to date on technological advances in endodontics, including the latest techniques in instrumentation, use of a surgical operating microscope, digital radiography, and 3D imaging/ CBCT. Her varied, international dental experience enables her to relate to patients from all walks of life.

A Specialist Member of the American Association of Endodontists, she is also a member of the American Dental Association, the New York State Dental Association, the NYC Dental Society, the Harvard Alumni Association, and the UCSF Alumni Association.

Endodontics is the dental specialty concerned with the study and treatment of the dental pulp. An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in treatment to help save teeth. They deal with problems with the inside of the tooth: the pulp, which is made up of nerves, blood vessels, and other soft tissues. One of the most common procedures these dental professionals perform is root canal treatment, which involves removing the infected pulp of a tooth and sealing it up.

Devoted to helping the community, Dr. Bose has participated in several dental camps in rural areas as well as being actively involved in the community dental clinic at UCSF.

Aside from dentistry, she has two Bachelor’s Degrees in Music. She plays the Hawaiian guitar and has performed as an artist on All India Radio and National Television. She also loves traveling and has her own blog on travel and lifestyle. Her favorite place to vacation is in Italy.
