Meet Us Nishant Chauhan, DMD, MPH, MBA

Dr. Chauhan graduated from Dental School at the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health in 2011. He obtained his Masters in Public Health and Masters in Business Administration while in dental school. He then completed a hospital based Dental Anesthesiology Residency in 2013. This allows Dr. Chauhan to administer all levels of anesthesia for patients undergoing dental treatment. Anesthesia truly enhances the experience of patients by eliminating anxiety and pain. Being trained in a hospital setting allows Dr. Chauhan to implement many of the same safety protocols in the office. This is important to Dr. Chauhan because his primary goal is always the safety of his patients.

Dr. Chauhan is Board Certified by the American Dental Board of Anesthesiology and teaches Dental Anesthesiology residents as adjunct faculty at NYU’s Dental Anesthesiology residency program. Dr. Chauhan also evaluates other dental anesthesia providers in Arizona as a dental consultant for the Arizona Board of Dental Examiners. Dr. Chauhan’s goal at Desert Ridge Periodontics & Implant Dentistry is to provide anesthesia care for patients that meets their highest expectations to allow them to undergo periodontal, implant and oral surgical procedures with Dr. Indech under sedation.

A father of three younger children, Dr. Chauhan has very little spare time.
