Mita Desai, DDS
Following dental school, Dr. Desai came to North Texas and worked as a general dentist in Richardson and Irving. When Dr. Chris Schmoker retired after practicing for more than 40 years, he entrusted Dr. Desai to continue providing excellent care for his patients. In 2008, Dr. Desai acquired the practice, and the entire staff stayed on to help her continue Dr. Schmoker’s legacy of patient-centered care. In fall of 2011, Dr. Desai also acquired the neighboring practice of Dr. William Barnes and merged the two practices to create a team of caring individuals who share a passion for taking care of patients.
Dr. Desai has long been deeply committed to service. She was an active participant in various camps organized by the Rotary and Lions Clubs in India, in which her parents serve as active leaders. Here in North Texas, Dr. Desai has participated in the mobile dental van program, providing preventive care including checkups, cleanings and sealants for children in schools around Dallas and Fort Worth.
Dr. Desai is fluent in English and Hindi and has added some Spanish to her repertoire since coming to Texas. She is a gifted communicator and enjoys developing a personal rapport with her patients, which helps her understand and meet each patient’s individual dental needs. When she is not in the office, Dr. Desai takes every opportunity to spend time with her husband who is a certified financial account and her beautiful daughter. A passionate learner, Dr. Desai also enjoys music, going to the movies, travelling and exercising.
