Dr. Alka Banker aces at the art of crafting beautiful smiles. An Orthodontist of great repute, she commenced her career at Banker Hospital, the foundation of which, was laid by her family. It is located at Paldi, Bhatta, an area in the heart of Ahmedabad city.
Although Dr. Banker hails from a family of lawyers, she showed keen inclination towards the field of medicine during her early years.
Her grandfather, (Honorable Justice J.M. Shelat who has been a former judge of the Supreme Court of India, Chief Justice of Gujarat High Court and Chairman of the 7th Finance Commission of India) and her father, Shri Bharat J Shelat who is an esteemed advocate, have been highly supportive of her career. Dr. Banker’s husband, Dr. Manish Banker runs the chain of IVF hospitals (NOVA IVI Hospitals) all over India. He has been a constant source of encouragement and ensures that Dr. Alka Banker achieves what she aspires for in the field of orthodontics.
A clinician par excellence, Dr. Alka Banker believes in holistic treatment methodology, where she doesn’t just treat the teeth of her patients, but transforms their facial structure in its entirety.
She is a firm believer of ‘no extractions’ or ‘minimum tooth extractions’ and maintains that it is possible to alter the face profile and lip line by treating the position of jaws.
Thereafter, a strong chain & jaw line can be achieved, contributing to a balanced face. Broad beautiful smiles, straight teeth, better breathing, and good posture are just some of the other benefits of her holistic orthodontic care!
Dr. Alka believes that education is the best gift earned and given. She completed her Masters in Dental Surgery from Government Dental College and Hospital, Gujarat University and has been awarded with Diplomate of the Indian Board of Orthodontics, a peer recognized degree!
Recently, she earned her Ph.D. degree on the topic ‘Semi-Rapid Expansion- A Novel Approach by a Removable Screw Plate’. She also has several research studies and publications to her name which have received appreciation from dental experts worldwide.
While pursuing her B.D.S degree from Gujarat University, she consistently ranked first in all the four years. Her wall of fame as an Orthodontist displays gold medals awarded to her by the University. During the course of her career, she has also been invited as a guest speaker at various dental colleges across India.
Previously, she served as a faculty at Dharamsinh Desai University (Nadiad) and currently, she is the Professor and Head of the Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at Goenka Research Institute of Dental Sciences (Pethapur, Gandhinagar)
As an individual who is always keen on introducing innovative technologies in the field of dentistry, Dr. Banker often makes contributions through new methods, ideas, and products. Her learnings from the field of dentistry have manifested into widely known national and international patents. Her patent named - ‘Adjustable Orthodontic Bracket with an Angle Measuring Device’ has received worldwide recognition. Four of these patents anticipate their approval.
With Team - EZ Braces
Dr. Banker has been incubated by BIRAC [Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council] and has received a grant of 23.5 lakhs. She has a start-up named EZ BRACES which is acknowledged by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).
Currently, she it is incubated by Venture Studio established by Ahmedabad University; in collaboration with Stanford University Center for Design Research. She is also developing a new form of dental braces along with her team of engineers and technocrats which can be customized according to the individual’s need.
An avid art curator and an entrepreneur at heart, Dr. Alka along with her friends, Neha K Shah & Shrena Sutaria organizes a bespoke pop-up affair every year. Popularly known as, ‘A Thread Story’, this event is organized with an intent to preserve Indian Craft and encourage entrepreneurship.

It has been 5 years of treatment with Dr. Alka aunty and her team, and ever since the treatment started. I have never ever had a disappointing experience. Every one is so joyful and supportive that you do not feel scared at all, the way I have felt with other doctors while under going any treatment, even though you do something they have asked you not to. As for the results, they are fantastic. I can see the visible change in my smile over the period of time.
- Shom Shah
It has been 3 years of my treatment. My treatment was wonderful and not even a once I had felt awkward with my braces. Firstly, I thought how awkward would it feel with braces to eat and smile but now I realize that with braces my smile has been wonderful. They have been very good even if I used to break something and bring. They have always been by my side saying no problem we will do it, They are all fantastic. Everyone says that because of braces I look very nice and that’s just because of you Dr. Alka Banker And her Team.
Thank you so much for this beautiful smile of mine.

Amazing experience, appreciate the effort behind our beautiful smile but not giving a case for retainers wasn’t expected since my child kept it any where and it directly goes in to her month which is any genetics since stomach infection is more prone. Otherwise everything was amazing my children had an amazing journey with braces.

My childhood experience of a dentist has been quite sour and dreadful by going through the consequences of missing 2 teeth. But PULSE HOSPITAL changed it by giving me pleasant environment full of soft toys, lollipops, games, and Wi-Fi which makes it a dream hub for all ages. Beautiful strong teeth with a charming smile has now become an asset to my personality.
Thanks to your lovely and PATIENT FRIENDLY TEAM.
- Palak Patel
I had a nice experience with Pulse Dental Clinic. My toughest derangement of teeth was at last brought to its proper place. All the doctors behaved in a nice friendly way. Even Pinkyben responded positively and answered every doubt my mom had about the timings. I remember once Alka Ma’am came to see me immediately on emergency call. I can never forget those tasty Pepsi ice and the amazing WII- GAME experience.
