My name is Dr. Jagannathan Ramakrishnan. I prefer to be called Dr. J. I am an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Restorative Sciences at the University of Minnesota. I graduated from the University of Madras and completed my Masters in Operative Dentistry in 1989. After having practiced dentistry for almost thirty years, I thought the best way to give back is to share my knowledge with dental students. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and skills to the younger generation.
I have practiced dentistry in the northern suburbs of Minnesota for more than twelve years. I feel blessed to have the skills and knowledge to be a dentist, and enjoy helping my patients improve their smiles and overall function.
I am blessed to have my lovely wife, Anitha. She is a dental hygienist and works in Osseo, Minnesota. I am the proud father of two beautiful and intelligent girls. Shruti, my oldest daughter, is in her second year of dental school at the University of Minnesota. Dhriti, my youngest daughter, is a graduate of UC, Davis. She eventually wants to be a genetic counselor.
In my spare time, I am an avid ping pong player, enjoy water sports, traveling, and giving back through dental mission trips. I am grateful for all of the current technology in our office that I can use to help improve your overall dental experience.
