Her path to dentistry began as a Gator. For her undergraduate education, Dr. Kamkar attended the University of Florida where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree. She then pursued a Master of Science in Forensic Science with special focus on forensic dentistry at Drexel University. Her fascination with dentistry led her to the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine where she graduated with a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. After graduating from dental school, Dr. Kamkar continued her clinical education with a dental residency at Coler-Goldwater Hospital in New York.
Dr. Kamkar combines her education with her own dental experiences. As a child, Dr. Kamkar had cavities, crowded teeth, and impacted wisdom teeth requiring fillings, crowns, braces, and oral surgery. Now armed with knowledge and good oral hygiene habits, Dr. Kamkar takes care to discuss and share the importance of treatment and prevention with her patients. She sees her patients as she sees herself in the chair and that understanding and compassion shows through her gentle care and conservative work.
In her free time, Dr. Kamkar volunteers with the Give Kids a Smile program, providing free oral health services to underserved children. She is also a proud member of the New York Junior League, a non-profit volunteer organization, which seeks to improve communities through effective action and leadership.
