A native of Texas, Dr. Suki was born in Dallas. After living overseas for a few years, she returned to attend the University of Houston and the University of Texas Dental Branch. She credits her interest in the medical sciences to her mother, a career nurse, and her physician father, who headed the Baylor nephrology section for years. They instilled in her respect and compassion for patients of all backgrounds, as well as the value of service with dedication that has shaped her philosophy of practice. The field of dentistry appealed to her artistic inclination with the opportunity of melding art and science.
Graduating in the very top of her dental school class, she earned the opportunity of training in a year-long residency program at the Veterans Administration Hospital in the Texas Medical Center. This prepared her for the medical and surgical management of complex cases when she began serving patients in private practice. In 1998, she established an office in west Houston, eventually expanding to the present Holcombe location in 2007.
Postdoctoral training and constant literature review are part of Dr. Suki’s everyday routine. She attended the prestigious Pankey Institute in Florida and is a member of the Seattle Study Club, where she shares in a monthly meeting to discuss scientific advances and new treatments with her peers. She is also active on several dental society committees and is a previous member of the editorial review board of the Greater Houston Dental Journal.
Dr. Suki focuses her efforts on the rehabilitation of diseased bites and on restoration of comfort, beauty, and sound function. She incorporates the latest technology into her practice as soon as evidence based research supports results that meet her standards. In this day and age of marketing, it takes a lot of careful examination to sift through the claims that various medical companies present to the private practitioner. Dr. Suki, dedicated to the safety and health of her patients, introduces new techniques only after much study.
On a personal note, Dr. Suki is fluent in three languages and her hobbies center around her love of cultural exchange, travel and getting to know people. Of course, her two Maine Coon cats are very dear to her as well!
