Shelley Kaur, DDS
I, Dr. Shelley, have been practicing for 13+ years. I earned my degree in dentistry from my native country Punjab, India. After moving to the USA, I completed my DDS degree from NYU College of Dentistry. During my school years, I was in an owner program for oral surgery and was a member of OKU. Immediately following, I did a fellowship in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery from Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, NY, focused on advanced topics in General Dentistry such as E.R. and Urgent Dental Care, Complicated Extractions, Anesthesia, and Traumatic Tooth Injuries (Reimplantation).
I have had the privilege of being able to gain training in many different aspects of dentistry awhile moving around the country with my husband. In New York, I gathered a tremendous amount of experience doing esthetic work such as: veneers, inlays onlays and Invisalign. After New York, I moved to Kansas with my husband who was doing a residency in Psychiatry. During these years, I worked on Pediatric patients in undeserved communities for 4 years. From Kansas, I moved to Michigan when my husband did a fellowship in Sleep medicine. During my time in Michigan, I worked with a high end practice that treated the USA Football Team, the Detroit Lions, by making mouth guards, doing cosmetic cases as well as working on dental trauma cases and root canals.
Finally, my husband and I decided to make El Dorado County the place to settle down and raise our two children. We have a son and a daughter. We moved to El Dorado Hills in 2013 where I worked with private pediatric and general practice. Recently, I was approached by my friend, Dr. Angel Sun, to take over her practice as she had decided on an early retirement.
Along with my husband, Harnek, a sleep physician, and my two children, I enjoy many outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, running, going to the movies and spending time with my family.
I look forward to meeting all of you and continuing the tradition of excellent dental care.
