Dr. Shailja Bhatt
Dr. Shailja Bhatt loves dentistry because it allows her to make a positive difference in people’s lives. Growing up, she watched her father – a dentist – help patients feel better about themselves and their smiles. This inspired her to pursue dentistry herself.
Dr. Bhatt is from a small town in Tennessee, and she values close-knit communities. By living and practicing dentistry in Hilo, she hopes to contribute to the community through strong patient relationships and healthy smiles. Dr. Bhatt is multi-lingual and speaks Hindi and Kashmiri fluently. She is now accepting a limited number of new patients.
