My name is Dr. Sirisha Govindaiah, but kids call me Dr. G.
I am a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, wife, mom, and also have a Master’s Degree in Public Health. I have been a dentist for nearly 15 years. I grew up in Hyderabad, India and graduated with a bachelor's degree in Dental Surgery in 2003 before moving to the United States to complete my masters in Kentucky. I then obtained my DDS degree from New York University College of Dentistry.
After practicing in Chicago for a couple of years, I decided to specialize in Pediatric Dentistry and completed my pediatric dental residency at Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine. Our family has spent the last five years in San Antonio where I practiced pediatric dentistry.
I’m so happy to be opening my own practice in my husband’s home state. Being near family and friends, and a part of the warm community of Springfield, Illinois is exactly what we hoped for as our next adventure!
Our practice is focused on creating fun memories around dental visits. We educate families on preventive measures and early intervention with the goal of reducing dental problems, and when they do arise, addressing them as soon as we can so they’re simpler to fix.
Healthy kids with happy smiles means a healthy future for our community.
We look forward to meeting you!
Pediatric Dentistry is an age specific dental specialty that focuses on the oral health and overall wellbeing of infants and children through adolescence, including those with special needs. Pediatric Dentists complete 2-3 years of advanced, rigorous training beyond dental school.
