He believes in giving the highest quality dentistry in a comfortable, caring environment. He strives to get to know his patients, not just their teeth. Dr. Vashi received his degree from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in 2002, and his Bachelors in Science degree at the University of California, San Diego in 1998. He is committed to continuing education, and has taken countless courses in cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, dental technology, CEREC and Invisalign, to name a few.

Dr. Vashi recently moved back to the Bay Area and he’s excited to be back since his days at the University of the Pacific. He loves spending time with his wife, Smita, and dog, Teddy, enjoying outdoor activities as much as possible. He loves to read, spend time with his family and friends, go to the beach and both watch and play sports – especially basketball. GO LAKERS!

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

I believe that my patients deserve the best dentistry possible and that patient experience is key to my success as a doctor. I’m dedicated to making sure each of my patients feels relaxed, comfortable and confident in the treatment. To that goal, I enjoy explaining each diagnosis and encourage my patients to ask any questions they may have. I also strive to empower my patients with the knowledge to take control of their health. I focus on prevention and use nutrition as a tool to help patients overcome long-term dental issues such as gum disease, loss of teeth and cavities. I love people and seek to develop lasting professional relationships with my patients.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

At Total Health, we do everything under one roof. Our team of specialists do everything from periodontal treatments to oral surgery, orthodontic and implants.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am proud of the excellent dentistry and exceptional experience we provide. Our patients rave about us on Yelp and Google. It’s fulfilling to see a new patient come in with some level of anxiety and leave feeling 100% comfortable with and confident in the cleaning or treatment. Our patients leave feeling good about themselves. They leave smiling.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

Since dentistry is a combination of science and art, every case is fulfilling. I really love helping people. It’s an incredible feeling to see a patient smile with confidence and genuine happiness after an office visit.
