Meet Dr. Rika Prodhan-Ashraf
Dr. Rika earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2015 from Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine in New York, where she graduated with honors in clinical dentistry. Dr. Rika advanced her dental training by doing a one-year General Practice Residency at Columbia University/Harlem Hospital. There she did training in emergency dental medicine, periodontal surgeries, root canals & oral surgery, including managing head & neck traumatic injuries.
In December 2020, Dr. Rika completed the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) Fellowship, a distinction requiring 500 hours of education courses & that only 7% of general dentists have achieved. She’s the 2021 president of the Academy of General Dentistry & is an active member of the California American Dental Association, Sacramento District Dental Society & Seattle Study Club. She believes that constant education leads to better patient treatment outcomes & management.
Dr. Rika works closely with each patient to tailor treatment for them, giving high regard to a patient’s specific needs & requests. One of the most important factors to Dr. Rika is establishing an open line of communication & trust with the patient.
