Hi! My name is Dr Sukhmani, and I am a general dentist practising in Seattle, Washington. 

 

I started this page in dental school to increase access to dental knowledge. The page pushed me to do research, listen to podcasts and consume literature beyond the scope of my cirriculum. It helped me become a better dentist.

You and I may share some similarities. I grew up afraid to go to the dentist. I did not understand what they were doing. I did not feel like they took the time to explain the procedures. I do not like needles. As a result, I did not follow instructions. Yes, I did not wear my retainers either. 

Once I went to dental school, I understood the problem: there is a gap in communication between the doctor and the patient. We learn a lot of technical terms in dental school, but we don't learn how to make it simple for an overwhelmed patient.

I'm not here to sell any form of dentistry. Your treatment choices do not benefit me in any way. What I do want is for you to know your options. I want you to know all the benefits and risks (however small they be) of any treatment. I want you to know about home remedies to reduce dental costs. I want you to know about the products I would recommend to my own family.

Any product links on this website earn me a commission. You do not have to use my link to purchase the products.

 

Although my work centres around teeth, I recognize that dentistry does not exist in a vacuum. For this reason, I see myself as an advocate and resource for my patients as they work toward self-actualization. 

 

Use this site as a resource. This site is a to-the-point location for dental health information but does not substitute for a comprehensive in-person diagnosis. 

Thank you for being here. I look forward to getting you as excited about oral health as I am.
