Medford Mayor Breanna Lungo-Koehn and other dignitaries joined Dr. Haranchal Bains and her staff on Feb. 20 for a ribbon-cutting of her new practice, Element Dental, which is located at the Meadow Glen Shopping Center, 3860 Mystic Valley Parkway Unit B, Medford.

“I am pleased to welcome Element Dental to the Medford business community and look forward to working with them as they celebrate their grand opening,” said Lungo-Koehn. “I wish them great success in the future.”

With Element Dental, Bains is committed to changing the mindset of her patients and, along with her experienced staff, strives to show how dentistry can be comfortable and efficient. From a simple online booking process, patient comforts and Saturday appointments to modern technology, high-quality services and various financing options — Bains has reimagined the dental experience.

“My goal is to have every single one of my patients leave each visit happy, satisfied and wanting to come back,” Bains said.

Bains started dental school in India in 2006 and graduated in 2010. With the desire to receive the best training, she moved to the United States in 2011. She attended Boston University’s Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine, receiving her degree in 2016.

“I aim for the best in everything,” Bains said. “Therefore, after completing my degree in India, I moved to the U.S. I wanted to get the best education possible and America has the best dental schools around the world. Opening a dental practice was my American dream.”
