Our Team of Professionals
I moved to Hidalgo at the age of 12. When I was in high school, I would assist my mom in her dental office in Reynosa, where I saw how much care and comfort she would give her patients. As a result, patients liked going to her for treatment.
I aspire to give my patients the same feelings when they step into Weslaco Family Dentistry. I like to explain to them in detail what treatment they need so they can understand how I am going to help them. I make sure to treat my patients as if they were my mom or dad.
I majored in biology and graduated from UT Pan American in Edinburg in 2011. I moved to San Antonio, worked as a dental assistant then graduated from UTHSCSA dental school in 2017. I practiced in San Antonio for a year and a half, then I moved to Rio Grande City with my wife. I am a member of RGVDDS society and a member of the Texas Dental Association. When I was in San Antonio, I was the team dentist for the San Antonio Rampage hockey team
Dr. Kapoor moved to New York when she was 12 years old. Her father worked for the U.S. Aid and was stationed in Afghanistan, which is where she was born. She decided to be a dentist when she was 10 years old because she really liked her dentist. When she was 15 years old she decided to become a periodontist because her mom had periodontal disease and refused to see a periodontist. This urge to help her mom has bloomed into a career that she is passionate about. She treats every patient with the same care that she gave to her mom.
Dr. Kapoor now lives on a ranch near Austin, Texas. Her other passion is cooking. She has started a cooking blog (cookingwithloveandspices.com) and teaches cooking classes. She is using her cooking venture to support the local producers and food bank.
Dr. Kapoor has 27 years of experience in periodontal care. She takes care of our patients both in Austin and here in the valley. She has been serving our patients at Harlingen Family Dentistry since 2011. She also sees our Weslaco Family Dentistry patients in the Harlingen office.
After graduating from Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in 1986, Dr. Kapoor completed a one-year hospital residency at the Ann Arbor V. A., and then a three-year periodontal internship at Ohio State University.
Since her post-doctoral graduation in 1990, Dr. Kapoor continues to take advanced courses to keep up with the latest technology and procedures in the field of periodontics.
