Meet Shiv Sharma DDS
I was born in Palo Alto and wanted to be a dentist since I was a senior in high school when I 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. I believe my job is to guide patients through the best 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 and I enjoy helping my community by giving my time at free clinics such as Give Kids a Smile, Berkeley Free Clinic, and Veterans Oral Health Fair. I also serve as the Stanford Athletics Team Dentist.
Beyond patient care, I am part of the Board of Managers for the California Dental Association's (CDA) Leadership Development Program and am a Subject Matter Expert for the Dental Board of California. I am also an active member of the Dental Artificial Intelligence Council and Academy for Sports Dentistry.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, golfing, watching sports, and trying to find the best ramen in the Bay Area. I live here in Palo Alto with my loving wife, Tanya, an oncologist at Stanford.
