Our story

It began with the most mundane of interactions. Among the bustling crowd of shoppers at a San Francisco mall, two young women met. They had a lot in common and became friends. What neither of them knew was that this was not a chance meeting or passing casual acquaintance. Their lives were on parallel paths, with both attending the University of Pacific, becoming dentists, marrying IT professionals, and having two children each.

Now board-certified dentists, both women spent years working at different dental practices in the Bay Area, gaining valuable experience. Moreover, they developed a similar passion for patient-friendly, earth-friendly dentistry that no existing dental practice encompassed. It was then that they realized fate had brought them together for a reason, and together they could make that dream dental practice a reality. Transcendentist was born, and Drs. Praj and Ruhi have been serving Berkley and nearby communities ever since.

Success Stories

I would like to share my wonderful dental experience with all of you. I am a big dental phobe and deathly scared of being in a dentalchair but I have the most awesome dentists who have helped me to get past my fears. Yesterday I saw Dr Praj and of course she made my dental visit so calming and I felt so taken care of during and after my dental visit! Thank Dr Praj❤
