Erika null

Registered Dental Hygienist in Rancho Shopping Center, Los Altos, CA

We are excited to introduce you to the newest addition to our team! Erika graduated from Foothill College in 2011 with a degree in Dental Hygiene. She also has a passion for teaching and would have become a Spanish teacher had it not been for an early introduction to the dental field in college. She enjoys helping her patients reach their oral health goals and treats each patient as an individual.

Outside of the operatory, she enjoys volunteering with the local component of dental hygienists as well as being out in nature hiking or just relaxing at the beach. Lately, she’s been immersed in learning more in depth about nutrition due to her personal wellness journey. She listens to podcasts and loves watching movies with friends and family. She loves cats and dogs and hopes to get a puppy in the near future.

Everyone deserves access to excellent dental care provided by professionals who take the time to get to know their patients as distinct individuals. Sheena Vaswani, DDS, and the team at Los Altos Family Smiles meet those needs for families of all ages, including children, in and around Los Altos, California.

Los Altos Family Smiles strives to create memorable positive experiences in the dental chair. This is not a practice where patients are treated like numbers on a spreadsheet; everyone who entrusts the office with their care becomes a valued member of the Los Altos practice family. 

Preventive dentistry is a cornerstone of the practice. Comprehensive dental exams and professional cleanings check for signs of decay or disease, allowing interventions in the earliest possible stages.

Restorative treatments like fillings, crowns, root canals, and dental implants seek to preserve as much healthy tissue as possible while also strengthening, repairing, or replacing teeth. This conservative approach avoids unnecessary treatments and procedures.  

Cosmetic dentistry is another area of focus. An artistic eye guides all cosmetic treatments, and each patient’s unique bone structure and facial contouring are taken into consideration when planning cosmetic enhancements. 

Patients with dental anxiety have come to the right place when they entrust Los Altos Family Smiles with their care. Compassionate, personalized sedation dentistry options are available to help everyone get the care they need without undue anxiety.

Meeting the team at Los Altos Family Smiles begins with a quick phone call or a visit to the online booking page, so make today the day you move one step closer to your new dental home.
