Welcome to the dental practice of Dr. Poonam Gokhale, West Creek Dental Center. We are proud to be part of the community here in South Austin. West Creek Dental is a locally owned, family-oriented dental practice. Our welcoming staff is highly experienced, and we pride ourselves in providing personal care with a smile. Our services include care for young children, adults, and seniors.
We do not believe that a high-volume industrial-type dental office is right for everyone. Our goal is to provide a family-friendly vibe with a personal touch—as well as all the professional expertise that you would expect at your dentist. We want to help ensure you and your family enjoy healthy smiles for many years to come. We promise to make your experience at West Creek Dental one of the best you have ever had.
Before your first appointment with West Creek Dental Center, we invite you to get to know our doctor by taking a look at her bio below. We look forward to meeting you and your family!
Dr. Poonam Gokhale
Dr. Poonam Gokhale is the primary dentist and sole owner of West Creek Dental. She has more than 18 years of clinical experience as a dentist.
She graduated from Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine in 2001. Since then, she has worked in high volume as well as highly personalized clinics and has been the sole proprietor of a family dental practice near Dallas.
She has been in Austin since 2010 and started West Creek Dental back in 2013 when she decided that running a dental clinic was her personal nirvana, something that gave her life meaningful purpose. She finds that purpose still when West Creek Dental opens its doors every morning.
Dr. Gokhale has seen what works well and what patients really care about. She feels strongly that as a dentist serving in a family-oriented community such as South Austin, the primary goal of the practice is to provide state-of-the-art dental services in a family-friendly environment. This is what they strive to do at West Creek Dental.
Dr. Gokhale has enjoyed close professional and personal relationships with so many of her patients, employees, and peers because she is much more than an accomplished dentist with a "gentle touch." She is also a very empathetic person with a sense of humor.
In Austin, she has found her permanent home. She loves Austin and all things Austin and does her best to Keep It Weird!
