Dr. Dharmini Pathmanathan
Diplomate, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry
After attending Cornell University for her undergraduate education, Dr. Dharmini pursued a doctorate in dentistry and Ph.D. in dental and craniofacial skeletal biology at the University of Connecticut. With great appreciation and understanding of the growth and development of the pediatric patient her understanding of restructuring the adult patient ensued. Following her passions, she was accepted to the very unique and highly competitive residency program that combined both pediatric dentistry and orthodontics of all ages at the University of California Los Angeles and has degrees in both specialties.
Dr. Dharmini’s passion for the oral health of her patients spans from cavity to crooked tooth and everything in between with the utmost concern to establish a highly esthetic result. Furthermore, Dr. Dharmini recognizes the highly sensitive position of providing care for children, “It is my goal to make sure patients from my practice do not develop the anxiety towards the dentist that is so prevalent.” With her strong focus on children, Dr. Dharmini also enjoys the opportunity to engage with adolescents and adult patients for their orthodontic care, understanding the approach for one patient is never identical to the next. To this extent she tailors her treatment to each individual’s needs. According to Dr. Dharmini, “the ability to shape and create each patient’s best self through orthodontic treatment and the impact it has on a person’s health and well-being is absolutely priceless.” This commitment to her patients and her profession is what drives her to excel. As a member of the evergreen family dental practice, she invites you and your family to a new patient exam and/or orthodontic consultation. Outside of practice, Dharmini enjoys the weekends running after her boys, playing with the dogs in the yard, and finding the time to cook a new dish.
