Building Lasting Smiles & Friendships

Get to Know Dr. V

With native roots in India, Dr. Vishal Kulkarni always knew he wanted to make a positive difference in the lives of others by healing and transforming smiles. After earning his Bachelor of Dental Surgery in India, he moved to the U.S., where he achieved a Master of Public Health. He was then accepted to the University of Southern California Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry, where he became a Doctor of Dental Surgery. In 2017, he opened his first dental practice, and has absolutely loved providing one-to-one, quality-focused care for the East Texas community ever since.

As the founder of Prime Dental, Dr. V is excited to partner alongside Tyler patients like you with the most comfortable and compassionate dental care around. For him, the most rewarding part of dentistry is being able to connect with his community, one patient at a time. He’s here to be a trusted advocate and friend on your journey towards lifelong oral health, making every visit fun and fear-free.

Outside the office, you can find Dr. V playing tennis, cooking flavorful recipes in the kitchen, traveling, and spending quality time with his family and friends.

Our Technology

When it comes to our commitment to quality, every detail counts. Our office is thoughtfully curated with only the best technology that modern dentistry has to offer. 

Patient education is an essential part of our mission. That’s why our practice is equipped with next-level imaging technology like CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) and the CEREC Primescan intraoral scanner. These innovative imaging tools provide a crystal-clear view of your entire smile, allowing our doctors to give you the most comprehensive analysis of your oral health with unparalleled accuracy and efficiency.

Here, you can always expect a gentle and seamless dental experience. If you’re in need of an extraction, our doctors use the latest PIEZOSURGERY® unit to deliver the most precise, pain-free procedure possible.

Going Beyond Dentistry

Community Outreach

As a local practice, our purpose is grounded in creating a stronger, healthier community–both inside and outside our office walls. From equipping the next generation with oral health education at school events to teaming up with some of Tyler’s incredible nonprofits, we’re honored to get our boots on the ground and give back to our community in generous, meaningful ways. The next time you’re at Prime Dental, you can feel great knowing that you play a vital role in spreading smiles too.
