Dr. Bahadur was hired on at Apple Tree Dental’s Hawley Center in the summer of 2020. He is an internationally trained dentist, attending dental college and gaining prosthodontic experience in India prior to graduating with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 2019.
The joy of dentistry for Dr. Bahadur comes in the fascinating combination of science and art. He loves restoring patients’ smiles, and has a particular interest in prosthodontics, TMJ (jaw) health, and root canal therapy. One of his goals is to help patients with anxiety feel more comfortable visiting the dentist, and he likes fostering an environment where patients can feel free to express their dental concerns. He is part of the Texas Dental Association and the American Association of Public Health Dentistry. When he was in school in Michigan, Dr. Bahadur did community outreach for local health centers.
Dr. Bahadur’s hometown is Hyderabad, India, and he now resides in Moorhead, Minnesota with his wife and son. In his free time, he loves crafting with wood, and playing sports, including cricket, tennis, volleyball, and ping pong (and Playstation!).
