Dr. Ankita Desai


Associate Dentist

Community Involvement: I volunteered at various programs such as American Red Cross of Greater New York, New York Cares and Mobile Dental Camps in India. My most heartfelt volunteering experience was helping with relief with the American Red Cross during Hurricane Sandy.

Why did you decide to become a Dentist? I have always been intrigued by art, and health care was always my passion. Dentistry was the perfect choice for me as I could marry both my interests.

What inspires you to work at Preferred Dental Care? Working at Preferred Dental Care does not feel like work! Everyone is working towards one goal and it is to give our patients a healthy, disease free mouth, while having fun with our staff and patients.

Hobbies and Interests: I love traveling the world and spending time with my husband and daughter. I also love to swim in my free time.

What is a fun fact about yourself? I graduated as a Dentist when I was 21 years old.

Favorite thing to do in Queens: Flushing is such a melting pot of culture; I love taking my daughter to Flushing Meadows Corona Park!
