Dr. Nikhilesh Rao Gorukanti or Dr. “Nick”, as he is affectionately known to his colleagues, grew up in the other town of Somerville, which is located in New Jersey. He pursued dentistry due to his love of the specialty and his desire to make a difference in patients’ lives. Dr. Nick firmly believes that patients’ oral health is a vital part of their overall health. He strives to use his science and artistic background to improve his patients’ oral health and to overcome cosmetic dental challenges.
He earned his Bachelor of Science and Masters in Science at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey and graduated with magna cum laude. He then attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine (TUSDM) and earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. While at TUSDM, he not only excelled at treating his patients, but also participated as a clinical tutor to help his underclassmen with both clinical and lab work. Before opening Somerville Family Dental, Dr. Nick worked as an associate in multiple offices in Boston.
