Dr. Katharotiya was inspired to become a dentist because he believes that beautiful smiles can inspire and boost confidence and pride in anyone. Hudec Dental’s mission statement, “To improve the quality of life of those we serve” really aligned and resonated with him therefore made him eager to join the team. Dr. Katharotiya speaks, Gujarati, Hindi and English and in his spare time, he enjoys gardening, planting, and following the Indian national cricket team!
His wife is currently studying her dental residency at Case Western Reserve University and his favorite vacation spot is any place in the woods with family and friends, away from the noise.

Dr. Alicia Mickles graduated from Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry in Nashville, Tennessee. After practicing dentistry in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Connecticut, she joined Hudec Dental with excitement to join a practice with a long history of serving a diverse group of patients.
Dr. Mickles grew up in Mobile, Alabama, and was inspired to become a dentist because she wanted the ability to provide dental care and education to unserved populations where dental care was not seen a necessity. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her 2 dogs, reading, cooking, and online shopping. Her favorite quote is a Harriet Tubman classic, “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, patience, and passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
