While studying for her DDS program, Dr. Gollapudi completed an internship at a clinic dedicated to helping patients with special needs, thus giving her experience in working with those with more complicated medical histories and unique circumstances that need to be taken into account.

Dr. Gollapudi was married almost two years ago, and she is happily living with her spouse along with their dog and a betta fish. She enjoys traveling as a way to learn more about different cultures.
