After practicing in Australia, Dr. Parul Shridhar has always been inspired by her mother, an obstetrician, and her father, a doctor of internal medicine. Her natural love for healthcare led her to a dedicated career in dentistry – a field that marries her passions for people, science, and art. After meeting her husband and practicing dentistry in Sydney for six years, she planted roots along the warm and welcoming coast of Southern California. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of California, Los Angeles with the Dependents Award for graduating with courage and resilience while caring for dependents. She also achieved the UCLA School of Dentistry Award for outstanding achievements in the professional program for international dentists.
As the founder and forward-thinking heartbeat behind Tree of Life Dentistry, Dr. Shridhar is dedicated to refining her skills through ongoing education and the newest dental advancements. She is a member of the Australian Dental Council, American Dental Association, Australian Dental Association, California Dental Association, and San Diego County Dental Society.
Globally nurtured, Dr. Shridhar brings a culturally-rich and empathetic approach to the table. She takes the time to listen to her patients’ needs and imparts her expertise to equip, engage, and encourage each individual in her care with judgement-free guidance. Outside of the office, Dr. Shridhar loves spending quality time with her husband and kids, hiking local scenic trails, and soaking up San Diego’s quintessential, sun-drenched beach life.
We’re shaped by an energetic and talented team of people who are passionate about helping patients enjoy life with glowing confidence, healthy smiles, and amazing dental habits. We’ll stand by your side with all of the support you need to take control of your oral health and bring your dream smile to life.
When you walk through the doors of Tree of Life Dentistry, you’ll be greeted by our kindhearted team and an inviting atmosphere. Our highly digital San Marcos office offers a paperless check in, making every dental visit with us delightful and hurry-free. Before your appointment, feel free to enjoy our relaxing patient lounge with a cup of coffee or herbal tea in hand. Next, Dr. Shridhar and our gentle dental pros will pamper and protect your smile with preventive care. Our private operatories feature a customized patient menu and modern amenities, so you can sit back with unparalleled comfort while we treat your teeth. After your preventive care, Dr. Shridhar will share her findings with you and provide a personalized treatment plan for bright and beautiful oral health.
Your patient experience is the focal point of our care. That’s why we’re San Diego’s first Mac-powered practice, giving our patients the highest levels of convenience and efficiency possible. Say goodbye to piles of paper and long waits. Cloud-based software makes checking in as swift and as simple as saying hello to our friendly front desk team. With your dental health securely visualized in one place, our Apple computers allow Dr. Shridhar to discuss her insight with ease and ensure you’re informed with every aspect of your oral health.
As a tech-forward practice, we have the ability to do it all. From same-day crowns to in-house orthodontics, our office dons CEREC technology, 3D dental printers, and intraoral scanners to create the smile you’ve always wanted right here in our office. For anxiety-free dentistry, we also use the latest solar laser. Painless, precise, and reliably anesthesia-free, you’ll never have to fear noisy dental drills again with this revolutionary tool.
Every day, we strive to make a meaningful and impactful difference in the lives of every generation – both inside our dental practice and beyond. That’s why it’s our absolute honor to team up with ElderHelp San Diego, a local non-profit that’s wholeheartedly dedicated to improving the lives of seniors by helping them remain independent in their own homes. With every new patient that visits Tree of Life Dentistry, we will provide a free ride for a senior at ElderHelp San Diego.
