Life & Hobbies

Prior to becoming a dentist, Dr. Naidu worked as a software engineer in both the finance and high-tech sectors. She found her calling for dentistry after volunteering for a mission trip to Ensenada, Mexico. She completed her dental education in beautiful upstate New York but after living there for more than a decade, she was ready to get away from the cold. She is happy to now call sunny Orlando home because it reminds her of all the warm places she lived while growing up namely, Singapore, California, and India.

Dr. Naidu is a firm believer in giving back and has traveled to remote areas of the United States, Mexico, India, and the Dominican Republic to provide free dental services for those in need.

In her free time, she loves to travel with her family, play board games, explore different cuisines, watch movies and shows, practice the piano, garden, and spend time with family and friends. She is bilingual in English and Tamil and is currently learning Spanish.
