"My goal is to put a smile on the face of every person who walks through our door."
Your Ruchi Nagpal, DDS - Your Bucktown Dentist

Ruchi Nagpal, DDS

Ruchi Nagpal, DDS might possibly love teeth more than life itself! She is passionate about providing quality care while making the experience a pleasant one. There is nothing more satisfying than making a patient feel good about their smile. Dr. Nagpal is very excited to bring her enthusiasm and skill to the Bucktown neighborhood, the best neighborhood in Chicago as far as she is concerned. In fact, she loves it so much, she lives just down the street from the office where she shares her home with her husband and son.

Dr. Nagpal grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and completed her bachelor’s degree at the University of Pittsburgh. She returned to Ohio to pursue her dental degree at The Ohio State University and went on to complete two years of residency at New York Presbyterian Weill-Cornell and then New York Hospital Queens. She moved to Chicago in 2010 because she couldn’t resist the charm of the Midwest and she wanted to be closer to her adorable nieces and nephews. In her free time, she loves to spend time with her family, watch her Ohio sports teams (win or lose… Oh Browns ☹) , and try new restaurants in the city.
