Dr. Sanjay Dhir
I come from a family of healers and dentists; my great grandfather was a surgeon in the good old days. My grandfather, mother, and father were career dentists. I am a people person who believes in dignity and respect for all. I love what I do daily: dentistry is like a religion to me; it lets me make a difference in people’s lives, be creative, and provide the setting for social interactions with my community.
I like to enjoy my time at the office: I spend more than half my waking hours here. If I don’t have fun, then life would be a total waste. So my team members and patients have become close friends. When I am in the office, I am at peace with myself- it’s a happy, kind of loud, but not so serious environment. I love interacting with my coworkers, and they are like family to me; we have the best laughs together.
My wife of 20+ years is a full-time scientist. We have two amazing kids and an adorable dog. The kids are growing up too fast, so we try to do many different things together. My passion, after dentistry, is photography. I love taking pictures of anything and everything. I enjoy hiking, travel, soccer, and cooking. I am also an excellent bartender.
