Dr. Aparna Menon

Dr. Aparna Menon

She still takes continuing education credits to further her dental knowledge. She’s also a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the New Jersey Dental Association (NJDA), and the Monmouth-Ocean County Dental Society (M-OCDS). She’s had some amazing personal experiences, and we’re so excited to share them. Here’s Dr. Menon’s story:

I grew up in India, in a family of physicians. My mom is a doctor and my aunt is a doctor, so it was natural for me to get into the health care system. I was blessed with strong female role models who taught me the value of independence in a society that gives males preferential treatment, and where women are simply married off. Education was a top priority in my family. Money, I was taught, can come and go, but education is something that no one can take away.

Not many people get proper dental care in India. I don’t even remember going to the dentist as a child. As I grew older, I realized that dentistry wasn’t given nearly enough attention. This — combined with the fact that there were no dentists in my family — made me realize that dentistry was the field I wanted to get into. After that, things just fell into place.

In order to get into medicine or dentistry in India, your national examination scores have to be ranked very high. Fortunately, I got high marks, which meant I was able to go to the top universities in India, including the highly-ranked dental school in Manipal. After graduation, I had the opportunity to come to the U.S. When I got here, I studied yet again at the Rutherford University School of Dental Medicine, where I was on the dean’s honor list for two years, before going through a year of residency.

One of my absolute favorite things to do is spend time with my husband, Rajibe, and my 5-year-old son, Shaan. Between family time, dentistry, and running six to eight miles on the weekends, I don’t have time for much else.

I’ve been running most of my life. This year, I’m embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. For the last three years, I’ve been trying to get into the New York City Marathon. This year, I was fortunate enough to be chosen for the 2016 race. The marathon goes through all five boroughs of New York, and hits every major landmark in the city. It starts in Staten Island, and ends in Central Park in Manhattan. I can’t wait for November; the energy and excitement of a great race is always amazing. When I start training for November’s race in a couple months, I’ll run at least 30 miles a week.

The other important thing about me is that I believe in karma. In my opinion, what goes around, comes around — so it’s important to do right by people. I strive to treat people how I want to be treated because I believe if you put good out there, it comes back to you.
