Meet Hunt Valley, MD DentistDesire Renggli, DDS

Hi, I’m Dr. Renggli.

I was born in Ethiopia and immigrated to West Virginia at the young age of 5. My family’s journey brought us to Maryland in 2005 and I have been living here ever since.

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from University of Maryland, College Park. I continued my journey by attending dental school at University of Maryland School of Dentistry. Following dental school, I completed a 1-year  General Practice Residency in New York.

What I love about dentistry is that I get to play an active role in improving the quality of people’s lives by providing the time and services needed to help restore their smiles. I prioritize patient education and comfort, so please feel free to ask me any questions!

I understand that dentistry is beyond fixing teeth; it is about treating people.  More importantly, I have learned that trust is a crucial component of the patient-dentist relationship when it comes to fostering positive oral health habits.

In my free time I try to be active by going to the gym consistently and have rekindled my love for bouldering. I love cooking and eating all types of cuisine. My current obsession is Korean BBQ and Peruvian chicken (ask me about my favorite Peruvian restaurants!) I enjoy learning new skills; I am currently teaching myself how to read music and play the keyboard.

I look forward to meeting you!
