Meet Shiv Sharma DDS
I was born in Palo Alto and have wanted to be a dentist since I required an emergency root canal during my senior year of high school. The compassionate care that I received from my doctor inspired me to want to pursue a career where I could be of service to others and help other people. 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 oral health. 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 serve as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the California Dental Board and am on the Board of Managers for the California Dental Association’s Leadership Development Program. I am an active member of the Dental Artificial Intelligence Council and I also advise several start-ups out of UCSF School of Dentistry as an industry advisor.
Besides dentistry, I enjoy spending time with family, hiking, golfing, watching sports, taking continuing studies courses at Stanford, and trying to find the best burger in the Bay Area. I live here in Palo Alto with my loving wife, Tanya, a Stanford Oncologist.
