Dr. Vikram Pole grew up in the suburbs of northern Virginia. He spent his childhood playing in parks and creeks near his home. He attended the University of Virginia for his undergraduate degree and went on to the University of Pittsburg School of Dental Medicine for his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. Dr. Pole completed a general practice residency at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford, Connecticut.
He is a member of the American Dental Association®, Virginia Dental Association, and Northern Virginia Dental Society. He is trained in Six Month Smiles® and ClearCorrect. He has been involved in many volunteer events in the past including Give Kids A Smile, Ronald McDonald House, Children’s Hospital, and Bethlehem Haven.
Dr. Pole was first drawn to dentistry as a child when his brother fell on his face and cracked his front teeth. It was a frightening experience thinking that his brother would never be able to smile, bite food, or play the saxophone the same way ever again. Over the course of a few months, his dental professional reattached his front teeth and worked with his smile to restore it back to normal. Dr. Pole viewed it as a miracle and was immediately drawn to the field.
He spent time in college volunteering in various dental offices and his passion solidified. He knows that teeth are very important to one’s health, well-being, and confidence. He wants to be able to give people the best smile possible through “state-of-the-art dentistry and compassionate care.” Dr. Pole enjoys dentistry the most when he is able to help his patients achieve their dental goals and discover what a difference a healthy smile can make.
Our dentist describes himself as caring, gentle, mild-mannered, and fun-loving. In his spare time, Dr. Pole can be found traveling and learning more about different cultures and foods. He enjoys cooking, teaching, and video games.
