Welcome, Dr. Nisha Sharoff, DDS, MS
CBHA is excited to announce the addition of Dr. Sharoff to our talented
dental care team. Dr. Sharoff received her dentistry training in India
and in the United States. She completed her Advanced Training at the UCLA
School of Dentistry and a residency as well as Masters in Oral Sciences
from the School of Dental Medicine at the University at Buffalo. Her focus
has always been in Orofacial Pain and Sleep Dental Medicine, as well as
temporomandibular disorders (TMJ and TMD).
“I’ve always wanted to be in a field that tied me closely to
the medical profession,” she said. “For me that turned out
to be Orofacial Pain and TMD.” Patients come to Dr. Sharoff with
of a variety of symptoms, such as a burning sensation in the mouth, jaw
pain, locked jaw, and sleep apnea. She has treated patients who’ve
suffered headaches, clicking sounds in their jaws, as well as patients
who grind their teeth and have resulting jaw pain. “It is important
to identify these problems first in order to successfully treat a patient
with dental needs.” This became her speciality. Dr. Sharoff also
enjoys aesthetic dentistry and working with people of all ages.
When asked why CBHA, she replied - “I want to give my patients the
best care possible. CBHA makes that happen by providing a wonderful setting
and state-of-the-art equipment. CBHA also has a Cerec CAD/CAM machine
that allows us the capability of providing permanent crowns to our patients
the same day as their appointment. I’m especially looking forward
to helping patients with any kind of jaw pain and sleep apnea with simple
oral appliance therapy.”
Dr. Sharoff’s parents still live in India, although she has extended
family in Texas and other parts of the United States. Her sister, Neha,
lives in Atlanta, Georgia, and another sister, Pragya, lives in Toronto, Canada.
With a variety of interests that keep her busy in her free time, Dr. Sharoff
is always in the middle of a project or activity. She likes cycling and
sketching portraits. Her favorite sport is soccer. Her art experience
includes taking several courses in India to learn to draw people, and
she continues to enjoy drawing as a hobby. Dr. Sharoff is also a writer
who plans to write a book about specific case studies she’s experienced
in her dentistry work. For more information about Dr. Sharoff, please
