About Dr. Sidhu
Born and raised in India, Dr. Sidhu voyaged to the US after finishing dental school in India. She lived in Los Angeles while attending dental school at UCLA School of Dentistry in California. She furthered her training as a pediatric dental resident at Mt Sinai Medical Center in New York where she also served as the “Chief Resident” in the Department of Dentistry. At Mount Sinai, she focused her post-graduate research work on improving the collaboration between pediatricians and pediatric dentists by developing the infant oral health screening protocol for pediatric residents. As a part of her research initiative, she helped create a dental screening tool in EPIC for oral and caries risk assessment that can be utilized by Pediatricians and Pediatric Residents to assess not only the oral health status of infants but also to measure the referral activity to Pediatric dentists.
Her research work helped improve access to dental care for children in the underserved areas in Manhattan. Her major research foci are developing and implementing infant oral health programs in underserved communities and encouraging inter-departmental collaborations.
Dr. Sidhu also serves as a faculty member at the Montefiore Medical Center in New York where she works with Pediatric Dental Residents. She has received training in the use of Light Scalpel CO2 laser and is working towards becoming a Certified Lactation Consultant.
