Dr. Ratika Sharma
Dr. Sharma is very excited to be providing her brand of comprehensive and compassionate dental care to residents of the Tri-Valley! Dentistry taps into both her intellectual curiosity and natural proclivity for problem solving while also appealing to her extremely altruistic nature she has always sought to share with those around her. After graduating from dental school in India,Dr. Sharma trained at the prestigious University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) where she excelled, in large part due to her enthusiasm, quick mind, and both warm and calm demeanor. After graduating from UCSF in 2012, she has been practicing dentistry and perfecting advanced techniques. Dr. Sharma firmly believes in patient centered care. She values in painstakingly making the right diagnosis. Further she takes the time to fully explain this to her patients to facilitate a rapport with her patients to make joint treatment decisions. Further, she believes dentistry is not about fixing problems that arise but fostering optimal oral care year round and taking the time to engage in disease prevention, not just disease management. She truly wants to achieve a partnership with her patients to promote the best oral health and wellness they can attain.
In her spare time, Dr. Sharma loves to spend time cooking, reading, fixing things around the house and spending quality time with her family, including her husband, 3 year old daughter, and infant son.
