Meet The Team



Each member of our staff is an integral part of the equation that makes our office such a warm and caring environment. Not only are they highly trained in their positions, but they are outstanding individuals as well. We are frequently complimented by our patients, colleagues and vendors on how fortunate we are to have such a terrific team. The best indicator is the longevity of employment of many of our team members! We have found that our patients appreciate the continuity in having familiar faces greeting and serving them at every visit. We invite you to come in and experience our hospitality while receiving the best dental care you can find.

Dr. Nikki Chauhan

Welcome to our website...  My love and interest for dentistry began a long time ago. At age eight, I remember watching my Aunt, who was a dentist, take care of her patients. It was amazing to see how her warmth and kindness made it possible for her to take care of all their dental concerns in a comfortable and relaxed manner. I decided right then, I wanted to have a similar connection and profession.

Fast forward 15 years to 1998 when I graduated from dental school on the Dean’s List.  After living in St. Louis for a year, I decided to move to California where I fell in love with the smaller city feel of Sacramento and it’s beautiful surroundings.  I have been in practice since 2000 and can easily say the years have been full of some very rewarding personal interactions with patients, staff and my fellow dentists. These are friendships I will cherish for a lifetime and I feel fortunate to have been mentored by the best of the best.

After 13+ years of taking care of patients, what I most appreciate is having a trusting relationship and partnership with them. Dentistry also allows me to use my skills to give back to the Greater Sacramento community and beyond.

When it comes to your smile and dental care, my goal has always been to provide the highest quality experience to my patients in a comfortable, friendly, family oriented atmosphere.  From a treatment perspective, my dentistry has evolved over the years to incorporate health, prevention and cosmetics.  I have spent thousands of hours in the pursuit of expanding my knowledge in my profession and am proud to serve the communities of the Greater Sacramento region as a dentist who focuses on comprehensive dentistry, patient comfort, beautiful results, total health and maintaining a technological edge. As a result , it was my pleasure to repeatedly be voted one of the Top Dentists in Sacramento by my peers .

I enthusiastically attend seminars and symposiums on the latest general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry treatments.  In order to maintain high standards, I am committed to continuing education and am active in the following professional organizations:

  • American Dental Association
  • California Dental Association
  • Sacramento District Dental Society
  • The Academy of General Dentistry
  • The Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
  • American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine
  • Oral Conscious Sedation

Balance in all things in life is very important to me. In my spare time, I enjoy many outdoor activities with my son Arjun.  We love to hike, bike, travel and go rowing.  We are also actively involved in numerous local and national health fundraisers such as St. Judes, Shriners, JDRF and Susan Komen foundation for breast cancer. 

I look forward to taking care of you and all your dental needs...


Business Team

Hi, I’m Noel and I have proudly been working in the dental field since 1995, starting in the Roxborough neighborhood of Philadelphia before moving to Sacramento in 1997.  I am a proud resident of the Pocket neighborhood, having lived here for 25+ years.  Dr. Nikki brought me aboard in 2021 and I’m so glad to have joined her team!  It is a fortunate thing to work so close to home and with an AMAZING team of people.  The caring and compassion we provide to our patients is how we are in real life.  It is truly a pleasure to come to the office every day!

Outside of my passion for providing excellent patient care, I am the proud mom to twin boys.  They have grown into fine young men with bright futures ahead of them.  My five cats keep me busy at home and I am enjoying expanding my aquarium skills.  I love to bake goodies and do so often.  My other hobbies and interests include container gardening, going to the movies, doing crossword and jigsaw puzzles, wine tasting/dinners and having picnics on a nice afternoon after a leisurely bike ride. 


Business Team

Hello everyone! I'm Sarah and I have been in the dental field for 18+ years. I started with Dr. Nikki in 2021 and I am loving every day! My passion for dentistry started when I became a hygiene assistant at the age of 19. Through my years of working in the dental field, I have found that my love for business administration has grown. Not only do I love the team I work with, I enjoy and appreciate all the relationships I have formed with patients over the years. The empathy I feel is a great strength when talking with patients or understanding their individual concerns or needs.

Outside of work you can find me playing video games, doing yoga, gardening, dancing in my living room, hanging out with family or doing jigsaw puzzles. I love to be outdoors soaking up the wonderful sun or go to the mountains and hike to the top. I find television can be very calming for me. There is nothing like cuddling up with a blanket and binge watching a show or movie you love so much. Lastly, I absolutely love to travel. I have traveled all over the United States, including driving cross country three times! Internationally I have only been to Taiwan and Japan but I can't express how amazing it was! Since traveling internationally, I await the time when I am able to travel and experience more cultures all over the world. 

Even though I'm quiet and introverted most of the time, I would have to say my biggest passion in life is loving my family. My family consists of my boyfriend, daughter and 2 fur babies. They are everything to me and I am not sure what I would do without them!



I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, received my Dental Hygiene education at Diablo Valley College, and have practiced as a Registered Dental Hygienist since 1995.

In 2001, I relocated to the greater Sacramento area and was fortunate to obtain a full-time position in this outstanding practice and consider myself lucky to still be here. Over the years I have seen a lot of changes in the art, science and technology of dentistry. Traditional methods are tried and true, however it is important to me to stay educated so I can utilize new research and techniques to provide smart, efficient, comfortable care to our patients as well as ensure I have longevity as a practitioner. I take pride in providing personalized quality care and value the long lasting and trusting relationships that I have developed with our patients over the years.  I am a member of the ADHA, CDHA, and SVDHA. 

In addition to my skills as a hygienist, I am very passionate about food, music and canine rescue. In my spare time, I like to read, attend concerts, work on DIY projects, garden, seek out great "foodie" finds and explore the California coast with my husband and two dogs.  



I am a Sacramento native, born and raised.  I graduated from the local high school John F. Kennedy.  At the young age of 14. I became intrigued with the world of dentistry and was fortunate enough to be provided with the resources to grant me the smile I cherish each and every day.  I love being able to provide the education and services to do the same for you!

I started my career as a Registered Dental Assistant in 2000, even though my true desire was to be a hygienist.  Over the years I have gained the experience and knowledge of various dental office positions. I finally achieved my long-term goal and graduated from hygiene school in 2010 from Carrington College and couldn’t be happier!

Transitioning into being the newest member to Dr. Chauhan’s staff has been great! I couldn’t ask for a better mentor and co-workers to spend my working day with. I cherish my daily opportunities to interact with all my patients and love helping guide you into better dental and whole-body health. I believe in constantly furthering my education to keep current with latest research in dentistry and provide you with the best care possible.

As a single parent, I make every spare moment count with my son.  The years have already flown by and he has turned into a fine young man pursuing his life goals.  I do set aside time for myself as I strive towards meeting my fitness goals for overall health. Cooking is a passion for me and I am always looking for new ways to prepare food.  If I happen to have spare time after that I like various “mellow” hobbies such as crocheting, sewing, and scrapbooking.    



I’ve been in the dental field since 2003, and proudly joined Dr. Nikki’s team in 2017. I love learning about our patients and helping to achieve their dental goals as an RDAEF II. My role here is to transfer doctor’s careful design by taking impressions and sending it to our trusted laboratory, then restore it to the patient’s teeth. Our patient’s comfort is top of my list during and after their procedures. It is rewarding to see when our work can bring a smile to a patient’s face!


I have a daughter and son who practice Taekwondo. On my days off, my husband takes us on adventures, kid boot camps, or swimming.


Dental Assistant

My name is Amira and I was born in San Jose, California. Though I am not originally from Sacramento, this is where I have spent most of my life. I absolutely love making people smile, and being in the dental field gives me the ability to do just that. I became a team member at Dr. Nikki’s in 2020. I really enjoy being part of the team here and what a great way to start my Dental Journey towards becoming a Dental Hygienist in the Near Future!!

When I am not working or in my spare time, I love to hang out with my niece and nephews. I feel blessed to be able to spend time with them as much as I can. When I am not spending time with family, I enjoy a little retail shopping and splurging at the mall!


Dental Assistant

I found my dental home with Dr. Nikki in 2022. Before I joined her team, I began my dental assisting career in 2018. I have always found the dental field exciting and interesting, even as a child.  Due to some insecurities I have faced with my own smile, being an advocate for those patients that may feel the same brings me great joy. Continuing education is also very important to me.  I enjoy learning the newest and up-to-date dental technologies and studies. When I’m not working, you can catch me baking and watching movies or doing anything adventurous with my son.
