Meera Sahni, DMD, MSPeriodontist
Dr. Meera Sahni was born and raised on the Jersey Shore in Rumson, New Jersey where she spent her childhood sailing on the Shrewsbury River. Her passion for Periodontics began after a moving shadowing experience where she encountered a 16-year-old patient with periodontal disease. To balance her varied interests, Dr. Meera majored in Art History and earned her BA from Barnard College, Columbia University. She was awarded the Alpha Zeta Prize for her thesis on Contemporary Chinese Art.
Her dental career began shortly after graduating college at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine where she earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree.
After honing her interest in Periodontics during dental school, Dr. Meera was accepted to the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine where she received her Certificate of Periodontology. In addition to her surgical training, Dr. Meera also received her Masters of Science Degree in Oral Microbiology during her time at UPenn, which involved a clinical research project on enhancing traditional non-surgical periodontal therapy.
Dr. Meera is a firm believer in providing excellent care to her patients before, during, and long after treatment. Her patients are her number one priority and this is what gives her the greatest satisfaction in her practice. Outside of dentistry, Meera is passionate about developing a healthy mindset through her weekly practice of yoga and mindfulness. She is also an avid lover of art museums, birds, weight training, marathon running, and any opportunity to go hiking in nature.
