Meet Dr. Dipesh Sitaram

Dr. Dipesh Sitaram approaches everything he does with a passion for doing it well. After earning his dental degree from Indiana University, Dr. Sitaram immediately opened a private dental practice in Indianapolis that grew quickly. He later opened Dental Solutions of Columbus, a second highly successful practice that Dr. Sitaram has since expanded to include an oral surgery and implants center within the office. Dental Solutions is a place where anyone can come and there will be a solution for their dental needs. And not just any solution, but superb treatment options performed by great people using state-of-the-art technology.

Dr. Sitaram is a unique kind of dentist with whom patients truly enjoy interacting as they entrust their oral health to his expert care. He focuses on relationships, including listening to and understanding his patients’ needs, and he has a quick sense of humor as well. Dr. Sitaram knows what a huge difference it can make in your life to have a healthy and attractive smile, and he believes the process to get there can be pleasant and fun.

With his unquenchable thirst for furthering his knowledge and skills, years ago Dr. Sitaram immersed himself in the world of CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) and one-visit dentistry. Using a special camera, CAD/CAM software, and an onsite computer-directed milling machine, our team can design, make, and place restorations all in the same appointment. Dr. Sitaram then added GALILEOS 3D imaging to his practice. It uses cone beam technology to produce 3D x-rays. You might be familiar with CAT scans (x-ray images made using computerized axial tomography), and that’s what this is! These 3D x-rays enable practitioners to see patients’ needs better than ever and subsequently, to more fully determine how best to treat them. The CEREC and GALILEOS systems make a dynamic technological combination.

We can literally plan whole procedures digitally with such precision, accuracy, and quality that it continues to wow even me. When we do the actual treatment for patients, it is so predictable because we have gone through the procedure virtually. Everything goes smoother because of the amazing planning we’re able to do with this technology, and the results are better for patients. Their smiles feel good, function well, and look fantastic, and I really believe that makes their lives a lot better.

In his quest for balancing the science and art of dentistry, Dr. Sitaram added yet another treatment option that is dramatically improving patients’ lives. People are finding long-term pain relief from TMD and bite misalignment through gneuromuscular dentistry. It combines TMD therapy, restorative dentistry, and orthopedics (dealing with needed correction of certain bones and muscles) to bring comfort to patients, many of whom have been searching for a solution for years. Dr. Sitaram has pursued intensive training in this progressive area of dentistry at Occlusion Connections®, the Center of Gneuromuscular Dentistry & Orthopedic Occlusal Advancement in Las Vegas. Led by Dr. Clayton A. Chan, Dr. Sitaram is part of worldwide team of less than 100 dentists who have completed or are completing the entire seven-level Occlusion Connections curriculum. As part of his interest in and clinical work with dental orthotics, Dr. Sitaram has patented an orthotic device designed to help prevent concussions, particularly for collegiate and professional athletes.

Dr. Sitaram has always gone far above and beyond the required annual hours for Continuing Education. He works hard to stay up-to-date on advancements in dental treatments and technologies because they make so many additional benefits available to you as a patient. As a bonus, cool technology and learning new skills also make practicing dentistry more interesting. In addition to the Occlusion Connections curriculum, Dr. Sitaram’s postgraduate education includes:

  • Orthodontic training with Dr. William Hang, DDS, MSD of Face Focused Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics®, with Dr. Brock Rondeau, and with OSA University (Obstructive Sleep Airway University). These mentor dentists and programs provide leading-edge clinical courses based on the guiding principles and essential skills for complete dental care, bite correction, and teeth straightening. Dr. Sitaram’s primary training with them has been in the areas of occlusion (bite), the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and comprehensive restorations, which have all become an integral part of Dr. Sitaram’s dental practice in Columbus.
  • Spear Curriculum through the prestigious Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, plus an invitation to join the exclusive Spear Faculty Club (SFSC). This exclusive membership opens up numerous dental training, networking, and mentoring opportunities. Dr. Sitaram has also started a Spear Study Club for dentists in Indianapolis to help doctors with continuing education.
  • CEREC Doctors and Mentor group, another part of the Scottsdale Center that revolves around CEREC one-visit dentistry and the amazing technologies that make it possible.

Dr. Sitaram and his family are active in their local community. Having been blessed by high-quality education, Dr. Sitaram and The Sitaram Foundation are helping fund a college in India that Dr. Sitaram’s grandfather assisted in starting. Dr. Sitaram has a dream to one day open a dental school on the campus. The Sitaram Foundation aims to promote educational and career opportunities for those in Third World countries.

I have been fortunate to be able to work hard and see my dreams come to fruition. I want to help make that a possibility for others, whether it’s by transforming a patient’s smile, contributing in my community, or promoting education and job opportunities through the Sitaram Foundation.

In his personal life, Dr. Sitaram and his beautiful wife, Komal, love spending time together with their children. Their daughter Medha was born in 2010, and their son Raghav was born in 2012. Of everything in his life, Dr. Sitaram considers his family to be his ultimate achievement and greatest joy. The Sitaram family looks forward to getting to know you!

Meet Dr. Gabriel Hostalet

Dr. Gabriel Hostalet, our oral surgeon at Dental Solutions in Columbus, was raised in suburban Chicago. After graduating from high school, he completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UI), finishing in three years. Dr. Hostalet then attained his dental degree from UI’s College of Dentistry in Chicago. During dental school, Dr. Hostalet was selected to participate in the Honors Program and to be inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society. Additionally, he received the Community Dentistry Award for charitable work and the Daniel Seldin Award for excellence in the area of oral surgery.

Following dental school, Dr. Hostalet completed a one-year General Practice Residency in New York before returning to the Midwest for a four-year residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the Indiana University Medical Center. During his final year of residency, Dr. Hostalet served as Chief Resident. He finished his rigorous program in 2005. Dr. Hostalet is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and he is a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Dr. Hostalet chose to pursue a career in oral surgery because he saw it as a unique bridge between dentistry and medicine. He understands that dental care—oral surgery in particular—commonly causes people to feel anxious. Knowing this, Dr. Hostalet and his patients appreciate that his training allows him to provide intravenous (IV) sedation to make oral surgery as comfortable as possible at our dental office in Columbus. Another aspect of oral surgery that Dr. Hostalet loves is the ability to help reconstruct people’s smiles! Whether patients are missing teeth because of dental disease, cancer, injury, or any other reason, Dr. Hostalet knows it affects both personal health and self-esteem. He finds it extremely rewarding to participate in the process of giving people their smiles back. The science and art of oral surgery, especially implant dentistry, is ever-improving, so Dr. Hostalet takes Continuing Education very seriously to keep up with new advancements in his field.

Having grown up in the Chicago area, Dr. Hostalet is a lifelong fan of the Chicago Cubs. He continues to wait patiently for their return to the World Series! In addition to being a sports fan, Dr. Hostalet enjoys playing sports, including golf. His greatest passion, which he also considers his greatest achievement, is his family. He is the proud father of three lovely children, Sydney, Harrison, and Brady.

We look forward to your visit!
