kelsilewisddsDr. Koppuzha was born in India and migrated to the US at a young age. Since then, she has lived all over the place, including Minnesota, Kentucky, New York, Florida, and now Texas! She is in love with the weather and food here but most of all, the southern hospitality.

Dr. Koppuzha grew her interest in dentistry in college when watching a dentist work on her brother. She found dentistry to be a form of art as it took great hand skills and a good eye for detail that she knew she possessed due to her background in fine arts. Her passion for dentistry further developed as she learned the impact she had on patients when getting them out of pain or giving them a brand new smile they are proud of. She especially enjoys treating patients with the love and care needed to lessen the fear of dentists many people have.

Dr. Koppuzha completed her undergraduate degree in Neuroscience at the University of Florida (Go Gators!), followed by a Masters in Medical Sciences at the University of South Florida. Afterwards, she made a big move to Utah and completed her Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD) at Roseman University of Health Sciences. She furthered her training in dentistry and completed a surgery and endodontics intensive residency program at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, New York.

In her spare time, Dr. Koppuzha loves to travel, try new foods, practice her new hobby of pyrography, and spend time with family and friends. She is happy to be serving the people of Bastrop and surrounding areas and is excited to get to know everyone through dedicated patient care.
