Meet Shiv Sharma DDS
I’ve wanted to be a dentist since I was a senior in high school and required an emergency root canal. The compassionate care that I received from my doctor inspired me to want to pursue a career where I could help people and be of service to others. As a dentist, I believe that my job is to guide patients through the decisions for their optimal oral health and to provide conscientious and trustworthy care.
I perform a broad array of procedures to help patients achieve and maintain their best smiles. I use cutting-edge technology to get the best results for each patient and I am continually updating my knowledge on the latest techniques and protocols by attending courses and seminars around the country. Outside of the office I volunteer my time at free clinics such as Berkeley Free Clinic, Veterans Oral Health Fair, Livermore Mandir Health Fair, and Give Kids A Smile.
I was born in Palo Alto and completed all of my training in the Bay Area. My undergraduate work was at UC Berkeley and I received my DDS from the University of the Pacific in San Francisco. I have been fortunate to join Dr. Stephens and Dr. Park at Palo Alto Oral Health and I live in Palo Alto with my loving fiancé, Tanya, a Stanford Physician.
