Meet Rochelle Akradi
Dr. Akradi is originally from Minnesota, growing up in Eagan and attending Eagan High School (Go Wildcats!). As a child, she was completely embarrassed by her smile. Although she always knew she wanted to go into medicine, it wasn’t until her self-confidence changed after braces that she knew dentistry was the route for her. She says, “I was lucky enough to have a female dentist and a female orthodontist, which helped me see my dream as a reality.”
Dr. Akradi graduated Magna Cum Laude from Denison University in Granville, OH. She was also a successful college athlete, swimming all four years at Denison. She then continued East and received her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA.
Dr. Akradi spent the last five years practicing dentistry in and around the Boston area. She was voted Top Dentist, Best of Boston by Boston Magazine in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Dr. Akradi is very passionate about dentistry and about helping her patients. She says, “I love the ability to help people the day that I see them. There are not very many areas of medicine where you can fix something at that moment.
With dentistry, you do, which is something truly special!” In addition to being a passionate general dentist, she is also compassionate and understands dental fears and anxieties. She treats the whole patient and values the connection between oral health and overall health and wellness. Patients appreciate that she doesn’t just tell them what they need. Instead, she works closely to provide education and help them understand their diagnosis.
Dr. Akradi believes that you can make the best decisions when you understand what is going on in your body. Dr. Akradi enjoys spending it with her fiancé Nathan and with the rest of her family in her free time. She recently became an aunt and has loved being back home in Minnesota for that! She loves to ski in the winters and wake surf in the summers. Dr. Akradi also loves watching football and the Minnesota Vikings! SKOL! Dr. Akradi is very excited to have joined our team and cannot wait to meet you.
