Rockin’ the Dental Industry with Shivi Gupta



Shivi Gupta is a dental practitioner at Scripps Rock Dental, a practice in San Diego that offers whitening, Invisalign, bridges, and implants among other services. She has been practicing for over 10 years, with a focus on cosmetic and family dentistry. Shivi applies a patient-first approach by reviewing photos and X-rays together with the patients. Originally a Canadian dentistry graduate, Shivi completed her residency in Texas and has since preferred the sunny weather of San Diego. 

Today, Shivi joins us to share why she moved from Canada to San Diego and her experiences as a young dentist. She describes her responsibilities in her practice and what makes their brand of dentistry fun and unique. She explains how headsets can improve the team experience and how it can boost workflow and productivity.
