Pediatric Dentistry

Meet Dr. Kritika

Dr. Kritika Carrazana, grew up in Florida, earning her AA in Accounting at Indian River State College in 2009, and two years later, earning her BS in Biology from the University of Florida. In 2015, Dr. Kritika received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Missouri in Kansas City. One year later, she earned her Advanced Education in General Dentistry Certificate from NYU Langone in Tampa, Florida, and then went on to work as a general dentist for two years. During this time, Dr. Kritika realized her passion for working with children and pursued a Pediatric Dental Internship at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Following her internship, she completed her Pediatric Dental Residency at the same university in 2021. Since then, Dr. Kritika has worked in private and group practices as a Board-Certified pediatric dentist in Kansas, Missouri, and California.

Dr. Kritika is passionate about pediatric dentistry because of the exciting challenges it presents to her every day. Beyond overcoming complex problems, she also loves the bonds she builds with children and their families. Her ability to be open-minded, empathetic, and grounded while creating a fun and educational environment for kids brings smiles to her patients at every appointment. Dr. Kritika’s success within pediatric dentistry stems from her ability to relate to both parents and their children, helping to put both at ease with the knowledge that they are receiving the safest and highest quality care. Her patient-focused approach helps tailor each treatment plan precisely to the needs of each patient while ensuring a comfortable and relaxed environment for both parent and child. When she’s not caring for patients or learning exciting new trends in dentistry, Dr. Kritika is likely practicing yoga, working out, trying out local restaurants, or chasing around her two-year-old with her husband.
