"Think like an artist, work like an accountant."

-David Brooks, NY Times Columnist

Foremost, I love dentistry.  I feel so blessed to love my work.  Each day I have the opportunity to heal, help, improve, and make the world happier one smile at a time.  Dentistry for me is also like architecture.  The structures, the frames that I work in, the things I build and fix must not only be strong and long lasting, but also aesthetically beautiful.

Dr. Sahib Sachdeva DMD

I cannot imagine doing anything other than dentistry. I am most passionate about having the opportunity to help patients smile brightly and with confidence. I always strive to provide comprehensive dental care in a calm, caring, judgement-free environment while building long term relationships with my patients. I’ve always wanted to be involved in healthcare and found that dentistry balances art and science allowing me to help people while also being creative.

I was born and raised in Michigan and moved to Vermont as a teenager. Growing up I was always fond of hobbies that engage my hands such as sculpting and model building. I majored in biology at the University of Vermont and went to dental school at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston. After dental school I did an Advanced Education in General Dentistry in Cincinnati, OH. Since then I have taken a wide variety of continuing education courses ranging from cosmetics to precise dental surgical techniques.

I enjoy music, movies, trying a variety of foods and restaurants and traveling around the world. In my spare time I like to stay active with snowboarding, martial arts and running.
