Dr. Kingsley received her periodontal training from University of Detroit Mercy (UDM) and Macomb Hospital in Michigan. Born in Northern India, she grew up attending English boarding School in Darjeeling, then Dental School in Nepal. After working as a General Dentist in India for 5 years, Dr. Kingsley left for the US following her life aspiration to become a Periodontist.
After UDM, Dr. Kingsley earned her Diplomate status from the American Board of Periodontics (ABOP). With a patient first mindset, Dr. Kingsley is extensively trained and certified for Laser Surgery by the Institute of Advanced Laser Dentistry. Laser Surgery is a less invasive and faster recovering technique, for patients with moderate to severe gum disease and patients fearful of scalpel surgery.
Dr. Kingsley is Co-Director of the Southside Comprehensive Seattle Study Club, and works as an Adjunct Professor for the University of Minnesota Graduate Periodontics Program.
Dr. Kingsley enjoys the four seasons (especially the fall colors) with husband Dan and young son Aanik. Residing in south Minneapolis, they take advantage of the trails and lakes locally.

Dr. Kingsley has two siblings, a brother who runs a family construction company; and a sister who is a dentist and practices in New Delhi, India.
