Meet The Transcendentist Dentists

Dr. Praj Kamat – Berkeley Dentist

Dr. Praj Kamat

Being environmentally responsible is something I deeply believe in. My dream has always been to combine my love of dentistry and being green. Taking over Dr. Fred’s office is bringing that dream into reality. The training I received at the prestigious Pacific Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco has given me skills to provide exceptional dental care. It is my sincere belief that I will continue to provide the same to all our patients in the comfortable setting of our state of the art facility. I am an avid diy person with passion for photography, reading and traveling. My husband and I hiked first time in Yosemite 10 years ago and we are as much in love with its beauty today as we were back then. On my off days you will find me reading and running behind my 2 active boys.

Dentistry is a noble profession and when paired with a caring and compassionate dentist it elevates the overall patient experience. I strive to be that dentist for you. In today’s age of technology, where new inventions are made on a daily basis, I being an avid learner will ensure that best treatment options are made available to you. I am an artistic dentist who loves to paint landscapes in oil. I graduated from University of Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco and have been living in the bay area for past 10 years. When I am not practicing dentistry, I love to spend time with my husband and two beautiful children.

Lindsey o’ Hearn, Treatment coordinator

Born in Dayton, Ohio, but forever a Cali girl as you can experience every type of weather in this beautiful state. I have a passion for patient care. With a degree in registered nursing achieved in 2021, I thought of pursuing a place where patient care is highly prioritized. Taking care of others is a position that I feel best suits me. I love to be challenged and involved in patient care throughout my community. I spend my days with my family, beloved dog Brodie, boyfriend, and friends in my free time. Some of my hobbies would be traveling, going on nature runs, being in the water, wine tasting, and finding new foodie spots.
