When Dr. Palya is not at work she loves to get outdoors. She enjoys cycling, running, reading new books, learning new things (currently she’s learning to speak Spanish and play the ukulele). She also loves spending time with her partner, family, and friends. Dr. Palya can be identified by her spirited, albeit off-key, singing.
Dr. Palya understands that seeking treatment for a root canal can be stressful, that is why she always goes the extra mile to make sure her patients are well informed and feel comfortable.
