Our Dentists

about, east nashville dental co,dr. lariat nekkanti


Born in New Jersey and briefly raised in India, I had several cavities growing up. Once I returned to NJ, I had my cavities filled at my local dentist. Personally, I was always scared before dental visits. My dentist, however, always had a way of calming me before appointments and making me as comfortable as possible.


I decided to become a dentist based on my own experiences as a patient. My childhood dentist inspired me to enter a profession where I would serve a community in need and in fear of dental care. I hope to engage my patients in their treatment and reduce their anxiety from dental procedures at East Nashville Dental Co.


I recently moved to Nashville from New Orleans. I used to play varsity tennis since high school and looking to join a league in the area. I also enjoy kickboxing, yoga, reading, and eating. I am always open to new suggestions on books to read and places to explore!

Education: Drew University & Tufts University

I attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts where I obtained my Doctor of Dental Medicine. After Tufts, I attended a two-year general practice residency at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans. After residency, I have been in private practice mastering the art of dentistry.


Continuing Dental Education

Training has provided extensive continuing dental education. I continue to learn about the latest technology and advanced techniques to improve the patient experience. I also enjoy learning and expanding the scope of dentistry I practice. Some of my favorite continuing education courses revolved around molar root canals, implant placement, veneers, and cosmetic procedures.

I have a simple philosophy: treat patients exactly the way you would treat your own family. One of my main goals for your visit is not only to provide quality care, but also to help you relax and have fun during our time together.


I was in private practice in the Chicago area until 2005 when I moved to Nashville. As part of East Nashville Dental Co, I focus on adult cosmetic and restorative dentistry.


In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, working out and spending time with my family, which includes three cats (Gus, Bennie, and Lulu) and two dogs (Mazie and Dora). I am also a die-hard Rolling Stones fan, so don’t be shocked if you see me dancing in the office.
