“For me, dentistry is an extension of my passion for art and for serving others.”
Dr. Sonal Virwani is one of our General Dentists at Westwood Dental Group, formerly the Office of Dr. Donald J. McLellan.
Dr. Virwani loves using her hands to design and create. She wanted to find a career where she would be able to use her desire and passion for painting and sculpting to make a positive impact on people’s lives.
Dr. Virwani started her journey in dentistry in 2005 when she attended Himachal Pradesh University in India and earned her Bachelor of Dental Surgery. During her studies, she realized the profession is very dynamic, and there is a lot more available to learn. She practiced in India for a few years while also attending various continuing education programs. One of the continuing education programs she attended was taught by a renowned cosmetic dentist who had learned his advanced skills at New York University. That prompted her to travel halfway across the globe to NYC, where she graduated with her Doctor of Dental Surgery in 2016.
Dr. Virwani offers a variety of comprehensive dental treatments with a strong focus on cosmetic dentistry. Her specialties include veneers, crowns and implant restorations, fillings, extractions and bone grafts, root canals, teeth whitening, and laser gum surgeries.
“Every smile I can make better, every mouth I can make healthier, and every life I can make a difference in drives me to work even harder and to keep learning advanced techniques in order to provide my patients with the highest standard of care.”
Dr. Virwani is also aware that dentistry can be an intimidating process for some. She likes to spend time with her patients, walking them through every step, so they are more comfortable throughout the entirety of the process. She wants to ensure all of their concerns are addressed, so they can fully enjoy their healthy, beautiful smile.
Dr. Virwani is passionate about continuing her education in the field of dentistry. She is currently a member of a variety of continuing education associations, including The American Dental Association, The Massachusetts Dental Society, The American Academy of General Dentistry, The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and CERECdoctors.com.
When Dr. Virwani is not in the office, helping patients feel more confident and comfortable with their smiles, she loves to cook, read, travel, and of course, paint. Just like painting, she considers dentistry to also be one of her many hobbies and not just her job. Dr. Virwani and her husband also enjoy going to escape rooms and playing board games.
