Dr. Nidhi Pai DMD - Mother, Gardener & Triathlete
Dr. Nidhi Pai is a graduate of Boston University, Goldman School of Dental
Medicine and worked at Stanford School of Medicine's cranio-facial

17 years serving her community’s dental needs. Dr. Nidhi Pai is
married and has a 15 year old daughter who loves playing tennis and has
an 11 year old son who loves to do science experiments and play video games.
She grew up in India and Nigeria, living in the outdoors and playing in
rivers and streams. She loves working with a diverse group of people.
Her journey in dentistry started in earnest when she was 10 years old;
she broke her front teeth in an acci
dent. The pain of living through her teens with discolored and unattractive
teeth cemented her mission to master cosmetic dentistry and full mouth
reconstruction. Her patients are as diverse as she is and come from not
only the Bay Area but across the world. It's her passion to do free
smile makeovers for underprivileged people in the community - the look
on their faces is priceless and is probably the best reward.
She is also very passionate about Permaculture and Homesteading. She has
chickens, bees, doves, a Dog - Zaza, and a cat - Tiger. She grows most
of her fruits and vegetables. She shares the produce with her community
and donates to local churches and homeless shelters.

Living Well program. Dr. Pai was also selected to the Top Hundred Dentists
in America and the Top Docs in the Silicon Valley.

owned his own practice in Dobbs Ferry, NY from 1981-2013 and has always
been an early adopter of technology, introducing his first PC in the office

and digital radiography since 1998 including digital panoramic added in
2007. His office went completely paperless in 2005 and in 2009 he introduced
E4D CAD/CAM Dentistry to his patients. His Dobbs Ferry practice was uniquely
based in his home and featured an aquarium motif throughout highlighted
by a 200 gallon salt water aquarium in the wall between 2 of the 3 operatories.
The practices gave special attention to Dental Phobics of all ages and
truly "Catered to Cowards." The technology continued throughout
the house with full network integration in all the rooms including the
kids' bedrooms, which helped launch his son Mark's (the founder
of Facebook) interest in computers. With his wife of 33 years, Karen,
they also have 3 daughters, Randi, Donna & Mark. Dr. Zuckerberg now
regularly lectures nationally and internationally on technology integration
and Social Media Marketing for Dentists in addition to treating patients

the oral health of my patients improve. I look forward to teaching patients
new techniques to help them accelerate and succeed in their home care
