Sunil Ilapogu, DDS (Dr. Sunny)
Dr. Sunil Ilapogu, also known as Dr. Sunny, was born and raised in Canada. After earning his bachelor’s degree at Canadian University College, he moved to California continuing his education and completing his pediatric dental residency at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry.
After graduation, Dr. Sunny moved to Ventura to become an associate in Dr. Channer’s pediatric dental practice. One year later, Dr. Sunny acquired the practice, pursuing his dream to provide exceptional dental care for children and young adults, including those with special health care needs. After about 10 years with Sunny Smiles Dentistry for Children and Young Adults, he continues to provide all children and teens with a positive dental experience.
Dr. Sunny stays up-to-date with the latest in pediatric dentistry by having active memberships with the American Dental Association, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the California Dental Association, and the Santa Barbara and Ventura Dental Society.
Dr. Sunny, his wife Natalie, and three children love living in Ventura County. They are actively involved in the community, volunteering with Interface, Head Start, Mom’s groups and a few other organizations. Sunny Smiles Dentistry for Children and Young Adults is a proud sponsor of YMCA and provides dental education to many preschools, kindergartens, and day facilities in the surrounding area.
After hours, Dr. Sunny enjoys golf, basketball, hockey, traveling, and spending time with his family and friends.
