Dr. Navreena Sahota pursued a career in dentistry after her experience as an orthodontics patient.
Her case was challenging. She was the youngest person in her elementary school to have braces, so, naturally, she was teased. She remembers guarding her smile or avoiding smiling all together until her treatment was completed. She found that the straight smile her challenging ortho experience delivered gave her new confidence, eventually inspiring her role as a dentist.
After earning her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences degree from the University of the Pacific in 2011, Dr. Sahota continued on for her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, also at the University of the Pacific. She maintains memberships with Southern Alameda County Dental Society, California Dental Association, American Dental Association and the American Association of Women in Dentistry. She also holds an Invisalign certification.
As a practitioner, Dr. Sahota believes it is essential that she helps her patients feel comfortable and at ease, especially those who experience some type of dental phobia.
She was a lead dentist in Monclair and today has been successfully practicing for five years. Now as a Livermore dentist at South S Family Dental Care she is excited to continue her career.
Dr. Sahota has one primary goal for her career, to change the stereotypical patient outlook on dentistry. She plans to make her patients more comfortable and help them overcome dental phobias by putting a large emphasis on patient education. She considers it extremely important that she ensures her patients actually understand their situation and their options, rather than simply informing them of the recommended treatment plan. Ideally, she wants each patient to enjoy their visit and know that she will give them the same amount of focus and attention she would give her family.
To give back and get to know her community better, Dr. Sahota has volunteered for projects involving free dental screenings for the homeless, free routine operative procedures for underserved communities, dental education for kids, free dental care for senior citizens, and overseas trips to Africa for dentistry.
When she’s not working, Dr. Sahota is likely traveling, hiking, playing soccer, enjoying time with family or relaxing with her energetic 8-year-old spaniel Toby.
