Nisha Kalra, DDS

Dr. Kalra is a highly educated, passionate dentist who loves her work and her patients. She graduated from the State University of Buffalo, New York, with her Doctorate of Dental Surgery. She completed her residency at St. Francis General Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut in 2015.

As Dr. Kalra was growing up, she recognized the importance of helping others. She was a volunteer for her local community in Calgary and now continues volunteering in the Bay Area. Dr. Kalra has served more distant communities as well, including those in India and the Dominican Republic.

Dr. Kalra has always been passionate about perfecting her work and serving disadvantaged communities. Her general practice began in her hometown of Calgary, Alberta, where she performed comprehensive dental care for families, children, and elderly patients.

From there, she served as a general dentist at an underserved Indian reservation in Alberta. She feels very lucky to have had the opportunity to serve these patients who had limited access to dental care.

In 2021, Dr. Kalra settled into her practice in Berkeley focusing on Lifestyle Medicine and Dentistry. Her passion is to treat oral disease by focusing on the root causes in patients’ lifestyles. She examines diet, sleep patterns, stress, and social health to manage oral health problems and find comprehensive solutions.

Dr. Kalra is certified by the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and belongs to numerous professional organizations, including the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, and the Berkeley Dental Society. She continues her education every year in renowned areas of study like Lifestyle Medicine and Invisalign.

Dr. Kalra has always been determined to help patients improve their oral health through managing lifestyle factors. She focuses on the mouth-body connection and goes beyond the surface symptoms of oral disease. Her functional approach to dentistry helps patients understand how to thrive as a whole, healthy person.

When Dr. Kalra is not spending time with her beloved patients, she can be found hiking, practicing yoga, traveling, cooking, and exercising. She also loves spending quality time with her husband and daughter in her free time.
