Meet Dr. Sashi
Dr. Sashi is originally from a small town in eastern Kentucky but moved to Louisville before high school. He attended the University of Louisville for college and dental school. He met his wife Jennifer in dental school and after graduating they moved to Bethel, Alaska to practice general dentistry. After two years in the bush, Dr. Sashi was accepted into an Oral and Maxillofacial surgery residency in Detroit, Michigan. He received excellent training in office and hospital-based surgery and finished in 2017 as Chief resident covering all of Detroit’s Level I trauma hospitals, 5 level II trauma hospitals and the University Of Detroit Mercy School Of Dentistry. He was awarded one of 50 worldwide sponsorships by AO Craniomaxillofacial for additional training in cleft and craniofacial surgery at GSR Institute of Craniofacial and Facial Plastic Surgery in Hyderabad, India.
I decided to work in dentistry, most of my family is in medicine, and, you know, I was kind of on that beaten track to go to medical school and I decided to switch things up a little bit. And in college, I my roommate was in dental school or pretty dental, and I started hanging out with them a lot and shadowing folks. And I really had a good connection with my orthodontist and I decided to pursue dentistry rather than medicine. The patient experience is very important because pretty much everything in dentistry is it's uncomfortable and a lot of folks are very anxious to get any sort of dental treatment. I really enjoy working with patients, their families and starting treatment, whether it's something very short or something, that's going to take time. And just being a part of their development and helping them reach their goals, what I want my patients and families to feel when they come to our office is that they're going to be able to get the best care and in a comfortable environment.
