Shaila Garasia, DDS
“There is such great joy in having a positive impact on my patients’ lives.”
Shaila Garasia understands the value of improving and enhancing an individual’s self-worth through better dental care. “Teeth and how a patient looks are a critical component of how they see and value themselves. Keeping this primary objective in mind, drives what I do and how I treat my patients,” said Dr. Garasia.
Dr. Garasia has a passion and commitment to serve the underserved. In her 17 years as a Dentist, she has worked at several health centers treating patients from diverse backgrounds. As a child in India, she was exposed to poverty and people with a lack of basic dental care. Those memories have shaped her outlook on life and have been a driving force in her career choice and work.
She graduated from Columbia University, School of Dental & Oral Surgery in New York City. In 2003 she earned a certificate in Non-Profit Leadership from Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, New York.
