Why an orthodontist
When Dr. Sharma was in high school, she decided that being an orthodontist was going to be her career choice. She liked science, and with her “perfectionist” tendencies, she knew this would be a great way to use both. She also was grateful for the treatment and results she received as a patient.
Dr. Sharma loves that she can make patients look forward to the orthodontic appointments and know she will make them feel proud and happy about the results of their work together. Being part of the great team at Dickerson Orthodontics means she will help create some great smiles!
More About Dr. Sharma
Dr. Sharma grew up as an only child and learned to quickly make friends as she moved around the country. Since her birth in Nebraska, she has lived in California, Missouri, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Massachusetts, and now is happy to call Arizona her home!
In addition to the travel and life in the U.S., Dr. Sharma has great memories of trips to Mexico, Spain, New Zealand, Guatemala, Panama, India, and Greece. You can also find her out on the dance floor, something she has loved since she was a young child. You might find her performing Bollywood dances at friends’ weddings, competing with her collegiate Indian dance team, dancing in an Indian music video with Snoop Dogg, or trying to learn new salsa moves! Who knows, you may see some great moves in our office!
When Dr. Sharma has some free time, she spends it reading, finding corny jokes and puns. If she can find a little more time, she’ll be learning how to play the drums, break dance, ballroom dance, and beatbox.
Exploring Arizona with her husband is high on her list of things to do. With her love of travel, you can be sure that there will be some trips to other areas of the Southwest and more memories to be made!
