Meet Dr. Reya Das!
Dr. Reya was born in Ohio and later spent time growing up in Michigan and Arizona. She went back to Ohio to attend dental school at Case Western Reserve University and then moved to California to earn her pediatric dental certificate and Masters in Oral and Craniofacial Science at UCSF. Having worked in Massachusetts, California, Iowa, and Arizona, she has been coast to coast and in between.
Dr. Reya believes that positive dental experiences as a child help create good oral hygiene practices at home that are then carried on to adulthood. As such, she strives to create a positive experience every time a child visits the office. Her practice philosophy revolves around providing quality treatment in a compassionate and welcoming environment for each child. “I chose to become a dentist because I love to smile and the idea of helping a person recover or maintain their smile really appeals to me. I am specifically interested in pediatric dentistry because I wanted to help children become less scared of coming to the dentist in hopes that it would make their experiences better and be carried on into adulthood with better oral hygiene practices. Social media is constantly painting the dentist as a scary place, and I wanted to help kids realize that isn’t the case but that we are here to help keep their mouths happy and healthy.”
In her free time, Dr. Reya enjoys jigsaw puzzles, sports, reading, playing the piano, cross-stitch, cooking, and dancing. She also loves playing, relaxing, and hiking with her energetic little dog!
