Dr. Sanjeeta Shergill was born and raised here in Fresno, California. She attended Manchester GATE, Computech Middle School, and Edison High. After graduating with a B.S. in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior, Sanjeeta completed a post baccalaureate program and worked as a dental assistant before attending dental school. Growing up surrounded by younger cousins and enjoying baby-sitting, Dr. Shergill always had an affinity for children and hoped to translate that into a profession.

 

Dr. Shergill graduated from University of California, San Francisco followed by a two-year pediatric dental residency at NYU Lutheran Medical Center in Springfield, Missouri. This program was a community clinic based program that prided itself on its clinical and operating room experience. It included treating children with special health care needs, complicated medical histories, and many with severe early childhood caries.

 

On her spare time, Dr. Shergill likes to spend time with her friends and family, being outdoors, watching and playing sports, and planning events. She is obsessed with HGTV and home d├ęcor and is excited to put down roots as a newlywed. She is excited to be a part of the California KiDDS team serving her hometown community to help improve the oral health of local children.
