Meet Shiv Sharma DDS
Dentist Palo Alto, CA
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 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 optimal oral health and to provide conscientious and trustworthy care.
I perform a broad array of procedures to help my patients achieve and maintain their best oral health. I enjoy helping my community by giving my time at free clinics such as Give Kids a Smile, Berkeley Clinic, Livermore Mandir, and Veterans Oral Health Fair. I also serve as the Stanford Athletic Dentist.
Apart from patient care, I am a Board Member for the Mid-Peninsula Dental Society, am a Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the California Dental Board, an active member of the Dental Artificial Intelligence Council, and have served on the Board of Managers for the California Dental Association.
Outside of working as a dentist at Palo Alto Oral Health, 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.
