In addition to providing complex general dentistry services, she also served as an advisor and mentor to other dentists and staff, and promoted oral health in the community.

Dr. Shikaram is a superb and unusually erudite clinical dentist with advanced AGD training who I have the pleasure to work with in a 501(3)c corporation, providing comprehensive dental services. She is particularly well versed in the intricacies of composite restorative methods, prevention as cure, and complex services for both children and the aged.
