The Many Interests Uncorked by Dr. Akhil Reddy

If you didn’t have your mouth propped open while he worked on the quality of your smile, Dr. Akhil Reddy and you could have some intriguing conversations. After all, it’s far more than just bridges, implants and root canals that hold Dr. Reddy’s avid attention. He has quite a range of outside passions and pursuits as well.

Dr. Reddy is a dental practitioner at MB2 Dental who’s firmly committed to the idea of affordable healthcare for all. He also thinks it’s important to maintain a sense of style even under the bland white coats of his profession. He believes that a show of professionalism in workday attire helps achieve credibility with patients and put them more at ease. For that reason, his preferred choice is a crisp dress shirt and tie under that boring lab coat. But he’ll tell you that a well considered shirt or sweater and a chino or khaki slack ensemble can also dress up a more business casual approach.

After hours, Dr. Reddy is sure to be found with his family, or perhaps uncorking a bottle of French wine. His preferred choice is one that might not be expensive — but tastes like it. Dr. Reddy is a self-trained amateur wine connoisseur with a passion for hunting down exquisite vintages to be found for under $30. Is it actually possible to seek out a worthy red wine at the supermarket price of, say, $11? Absolutely, says Dr. Reddy. He recommends the Chateau Beaumont, Haut Medoc. Or the Chateau Mont-Perat, Castillon. But why pay that much? One of Dr. Reddy’s highly touted French wine selections, the Asda Beaujolais, will set you back a whopping $5 a bottle. Those aren’t close to being his only recommendations, but they show that quality and affordability aren’t contradictions in his worldview.

Dr. Akhil Reddy has written about both of these interests — clothing style and quality wines on a budget — which makes writing yet another of his many passions. In the process he proves that a well-rounded professional is never known only for his career path.
