Dr. Vasu is a general dentist serving the Capital region and the surrounding communities. Originally from South Florida, where he was born and raised, Dr. Vasu attended Tufts University Dental School in Boston, MA, and later completed residency training at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, NY. There he received expert training on advanced surgical techniques from renowned oral and maxillofacial surgeons. It was during his time in residency he realized how much he loved New York and decided he wished to settle here and raise a family. After working as an associate at several dental offices around the state, he eventually decided to relocate to the Capital region, realizing its the beauty and charm.
His interest in dentistry started many years ago when he was observing his own dentist in Florida. He understood then dentistry is a unique amalgamation of art and science. Over the past fifteen years, he has taken hundreds of hours of continuing education to continually be at the forefront of the field and to deliver the best, customized care to his patients. He is actively engaged with the American Dental Association® and the local Third District Dental Society. What really sets his office apart from others, however, is the value he place on personally knowing his patients and building long-lasting relationships. While he understands delivering outstanding service is critical, ultimately, he is treating people and thus employs a patient-centric approach. His world class staff shares the same philosophy thereby ensuring a warm, pleasant and engaging dental experience. Furthermore, he embraces technology and innovation and has spent considerable effort ensuring his office has adopted all the latest advances.
Outside of dentistry, he is an avid car enthusiast who has a deep appreciation for just about all makes and models of all eras and loves attending car shows. As a resident of East Greenbush, NY, he also loves the outdoors and often rides his bicycle on the Empire State Rail Trail and goes on hikes in the Catskills and Adirondacks with his lovely wife, Anjali, and his beautiful five year old son, Krisav.
