Dr. Shyam Indrakanti or Dr. I for short, was born and raised in India until he was in middle school, when he and his family emigrated to Sonoma County in California. He completed the rest of his schooling there and attended the University of California, Berkeley, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Neurobiology in 2010. He then spent the next three years teaching and tutoring to help his family through financial hardship before pursuing his doctorate in dental surgery at the University of California, Los Angeles, which he completed in 2017 while picking up awards for leadership and academic achievements all through his academic pursuits. Immediately thereafter, Dr. Indrakanti moved to Texas to pursue his training in oral and maxillofacial surgery at Parkland Memorial Hospital. He completed his medical training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, earning his medical doctorate in 2020. He completed the remainder of his full-scope surgical training in 2023 at UTSW, Parkland, Texas Health, Children’s Medical Center, Cook Children’s, Veteran’s Affairs North Texas, and John Peter Smith hospitals.

Working hand in hand with local dentists, endodontists, orthodontists and pediatric dentists Dr. I has been providing care to patients in Mesquite TX. He strongly believes that the best patient care is offered when the entire treatment team communicates freely and strategically creates great patient outcomes.

Dr. Indrakanti enjoys cooking ethnic and fusion cuisines, going on hikes, enjoying nature, and road cycling. He is an avid tech consumer and enjoys taking on projects, working with new gadgets, making devices, and creating digital content. He admires teaching as a noble profession and is actively creating lectures and talks for a variety of venues, both formal and informal. Like all good Californians, Dr. Indrakanti has made Texas his home and is grateful for the opportunity to serve patients in Mesquite TX and the greater Dallas Fort-Worth areas.
