Chitra Shanmugham DDS Dentist



Steve Chu

I have been practicing dentistry since 2004. Before settling here in Campbell, I have treated patients in various locales in San Francisco, East Bay and South Bay. Within this time period, I was fortunate to learn from other talented dentists but even more fortunate to build strong relationships among those I have treated. Dentistry is about treating people, not just their teeth. Here at Brite Dental, we listen to your needs and do our best to give you that beautiful smile.

Being a Bay Area native, I went to grammar school through high school in San Francisco. I then received my Bachelors degree in cell biology from the University of California at Berkeley. After deciding that a career in biotechnology was not for me, I decided to pursue a career in dentistry. In 2004 I received my DDS degree from the University of the Pacific Dental School.

Throughout the year I like to attend dental continuing education courses so that I can stay up-to-date in various aspects of my field. This way, I can offer my patients the best treatments available. I am a member of ADA/CDA and AGD.

I truly enjoy practicing dentistry. Not only does it offer me the opportunity to constantly challenge my technical skills but I have the opportunity to positively affect people's lives.

In my free time I like to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Bay Area. I also enjoy staying fit by going to the gym and going on hikes.
