Dr. Shikha Batra graduated from an Ivy League program at the University of Pennsylvania School of dental Medicine in 1997. She continued her training, for another year, in a highly intensive hospital residency training program at Thomas Jefferson University. This training has enabled her to treat all facets of dentistry efficiently, effectively, and thoroughly. Dr. Shikha Batra also has teaching experience, as an associate professor, at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Shikha Batra remains active as a board member for the Michigan Dental Association young dentist member committee addition keeping up with advancements in dentistry through seminars and study clubs.
For fifteen plus years, Top of Troy Dental was the go-to practice of Ivy League educated Dr. Shikha Batra. This practice, now known as Troy Dental Studio, has recently moved to a new state-of-the-art facility on Crooks Road – just a five minute drive from her previous location at the PNC building.
The office is located in a newly constructed building – more than twice the size of her previous quarters. Dr. Batra and her team are proud to conduct a tour through the designer space.
She emphasizes that the street level building is definitely a more convenient location for all of her patients – particular the elderly patients. “Parking was often an issue for some patients, as was moving through the PNC building to an upper floor. Accommodating our patients’ convenience was a big part of our design process.”
“This new facility has 11 treatment areas” states Dr. Batra. “We designed the office to represent a soothing and relaxing environment – not often experienced in “traditional” dental offices.”
Our goal is to encourage nervous and anxious patients to relax and enjoy their “experience”. Some examples of how she accomplishes this is to offer built-in massages in her dental chairs, complimentary paraffin wax hand treatment and a high end coffee barista bar – full with cappuccinos and lattes and all the accompaniments! Her highly qualified team is trained to prioritize customer service and satisfaction.
“We establish and maintain a personal relationship with all of our clients” says Dr. Batra. “Most big corporate practices have compromised this art – but we believe that this aspect of our practice is paramount.”
Troy Dental Studio is determined to set itself apart. “… To think outside of the box.” In addition to all general dental services, Dr. Batra who specializes in cosmetic dental procedures also offers “spa” services in her practice. Services such as Botox and dermal fillers are often a natural progression to cosmetic dental work.
“Many years ago, we experienced patients-who invested in a great new smile would notice their lip lines or simply wanted “fuller lips” to show off a –now- beautiful result. As a student and educator at the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Dental Medicine, the one important thing I learned and taught was always to listen to your audience. Who knows more about head and neck anatomy than I do? As a result, my team and I, invested in extensive training through the American Academy of Facial Esthetics to achieve and accommodate the cosmetic and functional (Botox to treat TMJ pain) requests of our patients. We are dedicated to stay on the “cutting edge” by continuing our education and training in this “out of the box” form of facial esthetic treatment.”
She truly believes that teeth whitening, crowns, and veneers are also a significant part of achieving “the right look” which is highly encouraged by the proliferation of social media these days.
Dr. Batra looks forward to bringing other specialists into her office – ultimately taking the practice to a one-stop shop for all of your dental and facial esthetic and functional needs.
Until then, Dr. Batra and her team promise that customer service and quality care will always be of utmost priority at Troy Dental Studios. So, please contact the office today – she and her team would love to show you around – you won’t be disappointed!
