Dr. Naveen Cherukuri

Dr. Cherukuri comes from a family of doctors who encouraged him to study medicine. His mother is his greatest inspiration, and it was her assurance that he’d be changing people’s lives that convinced him to become a dentist. She was right, and Dr. Cherukuri loves seeing how a transformed smile can actually change someone’s life forever.

To pursue dentistry, Dr. Cherukuri attended Dental School at Rajiv Gandhi University. He then moved to Jamaica to practice and volunteer with organizations providing dental care to remote areas. While attending the University of California School of Dentistry, Dr. Cherukuri met Dr. Kommineni, ultimately deciding to bring their skills to Harrisburg. Outside of his personal work, Dr. Cherukuri assists the US Army Reserve as a dentist.

His time in Jamaica really influenced all his work and charity efforts. Along with his work in Harrisburg, Dr. Cherukuri still volunteers with the Jamaica Awareness Association of California and tries to assist in areas where healthcare is limited. To Dr. Cherukuri, building a strong community means having healthcare professionals who foster a culture of healthy habits. With the growth of Charlotte, he’s hoping to help create a strong, vibrant community.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Cherukuri enjoys spending his time outdoors. He is especially fond of hiking (or just walking) the area’s many trails with his wife and two children. Whenever possible, the family loves to travel, and Dr. Cherukuri is especially interested in learning about different cultures and meeting new people.

Dr. Sanath Kommineni

Dr. Kommineni comes from a family of physicians. His older brother, a general family physician, was instrumental in encouraging Dr. Kommineni to pursue dentistry. Even though his brother has now passed away, Dr. Kommineni still values the example he set and works with his brother in mind.

He holds a BA in Dental Surgery from Rajiv Gandhi University, a Masters in Community Health from Old Dominion University, and his Doctorate from the University of Southern California. Dr. Kommineni also serves as a dentist for the US Army Reserve.

After three years working with underserved populations in India, Dr. Kommineni learnt a lot about tending to underprivileged communities and how to provide accessible healthcare. In Harrisburg, he is happy to contribute to the continued prosperity of this growing community with his full expertise. He is a committed father to two daughters, and his wife, Dr. Kupperi, is also a dentist. When he’s not seeing patients, Dr. Kommineni spends his time golfing, taking photographs, and camping with his family.
