Biography

Dr. Uparika Sharma received doctor of dental surgery (D.D.S) degree from University of Washington (advanced standing program). This is very competitive program that selects only 5 dentists with prior international dental education & experience. She has also completed 1 year advanced training in endodontics therapy (which only 10% of the dentist usually undertake). She is also an TMJ/TMD expert. As a TMJ expert, she treats general dental problems with a long term perspective, preventing impact on the other teeth, jaw bones, head and neck region. In addition to general dental procedures, she evaluates TMJ, cervical spine, airway problems, chronic headache, CRPS. Only 5% of dentists in America are typically trained in this area. And only a handful of Bellevue dentists are trained in Washington state.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Dr. Uparika Sharma has been awarded as Eastside's Dentist of the year 2019 by 425 Magazine. The nominations are handled by a third party. Dr. Uparika Sharma is also an TMJ/TMD expert. As a TMJ expert, she treats general dental problems with a long term perspective, preventing impact on the other teeth, jaw bones, head and neck region. Bellevue ENT doctors and Bellevue Chiropractic doctors also refer patients to her. Information technology employees spend a lot of time on computers, and often in stressful environments. TMJ examinations help identify potential problems and avoid longer term impact such as headaches, ear pain etc.

    Had great experience with Dr. Sharma. She walked me through all the procedures I had to go for today, identified the areas I need to pay attention and provided options on how to proceed with treatment.

    The people I interacted with that weren't Dr. Sharma (the woman at the desk and the assistant) seemed a little unprofessional and made some small mistakes (e.g. needed to retake dental images because the machine wasn't correctly set up). However, Dr. Sharma herself was very professional and pleasant and that made the visit overall okay/good.

    Dr. Sharma and her office staff are top notch. They were very accommodating of my scheduling needs, professional, and kind. The office is comfortable and inviting. They educated me about recommended procedures to help me make decisions about developing a care plan together. I had a positive experience here and would recommend their services to friends seeking a partnership with their dentist built on integrity. Thank you Dr. and staff!
