Dr. Manisha Virdi Dentist & Practice Owner
Dr. Manisha Virdi was raised in the Quad Cities. She graduated from Rock Island High School and received a Bachelor of Science in Communication Studies with an emphasis on Women’s Studies and Art. She then pursued glass blowing, photography, video editing, and journalism, earning a Post Graduate Diploma in Journalism from the London School of Journalism, and completing art coursework at Pilchuck Glass School in Washington, Pacific Northwest College of Art in Oregon, and Penland School of Craft in North Carolina.
Dr. Virdi first discovered that she loved the balance of art and science when she was learning how to blow glass. She later applied the same thought process to dentistry. Dr. Virdi is a graduate of Creighton University School of Dentistry and has been practicing dentistry in the Quad Cities since 2016. She is continuously pursuing additional knowledge through continuing education courses and dental journals. She is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, The Illinois State Dental Society, the Chicago Dental Society, and the Rock Island District Dental Society, where she also serves on the board of directors. During dental school, Dr. Virdi volunteered at the One World Clinic, and the Omaha Correctional Center. She carried this spirit with her after graduation and she began her dental career working in public health.
Outside the office, Dr. Virdi enjoys spending time with her children, Nico and Zahra. She enjoys live music, art, traveling, and spending time outdoors.
