I, Dr Shilpa Kalra, completed my BDS in 2008 and MDS in 2013 from a highly reputed dental college of India, Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences. As a qualified orthodontist, I am trained in excellent and ethical clinical practice and research work. After completing my post graduation, I joined another very reputed institution, All India Institute of Medical Sciences as a Research Officer in July 2013. During my tenure in AIIMS, I was mostly involved in scientific writing and research work. Presently I am working as Senior Resident in my parent institution where I am involved in teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate students, research work, and management of routine OPD as well as complex orthodontic cases. My aim is to carve a niche in the field of orthodontics and dentistry for myself which is in tune with my ability and aptitude. I strive for perfection in any assignment I undertake. I have published 4 papers in indexed international and national journals and have some papers under review with reputed journals. I am also honorary donating time to reviewing manuscripts for development of our profession. I hope to continue doing the same work in future.
