Our Team - Kyle Office
Dr. Anil Gudapati
I received my undergraduate degree from Baylor University in Waco, TX. I attended Dental School at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I continued my education at the University of Illinois in Chicago completing a General Practice Residency. It was then that I realized how much I enjoyed working with children and decided to pursue my specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. After my training, I returned to Texas and started Kids Dental Smiles in 2006. I have enjoyed every minute since.
I am a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. I am a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association and Texas Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. I am also a member of my local Chamber of Commerce having strong ties and commitment to my community.
"The philosophy at Kids Dental Smiles is to treat every child as if they were our own."
My wife and I have three wonderful children who teach us something new every day. In my spare time I enjoy watching movies and live music, playing tennis and basketball, and spending time with family. I wake up every morning feeling truly privileged to do what I do and honored to know that you trust our office to take care of your child's dental needs.
Dr. Aaron Engels
I grew up in North Texas, and graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 1996. In 2001, I completed dental school at the UT Health Science Center in San Antonio. I attended Baylor College of Dentistry where I completed my Pediatric Dentistry residency in 2006. I am a board certified Pediatric Dentist. I proudly served 8 years in the U.S. Air Force before returning to Austin in 2009.
My beautiful wife and I have an amazing little girl that is truly the light of our lives. I have learned to love tea parties and playing dress up. When I can find free time I enjoy running, golf, hiking, kayaking, and playing guitar. I feel honored that you have trusted our team with the care of your child.
