Nidhi Pai, DMD
Dr Pai is a graduate of Goldman School of Dental Medicine, Boston University, and has over 20 years of experience perfecting smiles. Nidhi, as she likes to be referred, only focuses on Smile Makeovers and likes to say “smiles are a gateway to happiness, and I want to improve the world one smile at a time.”
She is an artist first, and Dentist second. Her goal is to understand and listen to each patient’s needs. Everyone is unique in her view, and she takes a holistic approach using a patient’s skin tone, eye color, even their walk, to create a unique, long lasting, and natural smile for them. She has seen many of her patients overcome their insecurities after getting the smile they deserve, and therefore likes to say “there is no greater satisfaction than seeing my patients’ lives light up. I sleep better when I make them smile, that’s my degree – Smile Maker!”
Nidhi has extensive experience in various cosmetic dental procedures, such as full mouth reconstruction, veneers, and Invisalign. She has been featured on ABC 7 News and NBC. She has also been named in Top Docs in Silicon Valley, Top 100 Dentists in America, Top Doctor Magazine, and Expertise’s 2021 Best Dentist in Palo Alto (where she lived before moving to San Diego).
