Raina A. Trilokekar, DMD
I am Dr. Raina Trilokekar. I grew up in Bombay, India and attended St. Xavier’s College in the city. I then attended Nair Hospital Dental College in Bombay where I earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s in dental surgery. Later I immigrated to the United States and earned a certificate in Endodontics as well as a DMD degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. I then pursued board certification and I am a diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. I spend a lot of my time volunteering in the dental community. I am an associate clinical professor at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, and a member of the school’s alumni board. I currently live in Winchester with my husband and daughter. I enjoy volunteering at my church, reading mystery novels, and baking.
Having studied dentistry in two countries for more than ten years, I think it is clear that I am passionate about my career. The thing that I like about endodontics is my ability to help people by relieving them of their pain, and help them maintain good oral health. Because this is what I most enjoy about endodontics I want every patient who sits in my chair to be comfortable both physically and mentally. I do my best to make sure that this is always the case and that the patient has the best endodontic experience possible. I want them to know that when they are being treated by me they are the number one priority.
