Dr. Sneha Parikh
When I entered the field of dentistry, I had no idea how incredibly fulfilling it would be to help those with oral health issues. Over the years, I’ve learned that a winning smile is invaluable to a person’s confidence and well-being. It is incredibly important to me to help someone feel comfortable and happy in their own skin, and a smile is at the forefront of those feelings. Nothing says happiness better than a genuine smile.
While I enjoy the work, my favorite part of dentistry is the personal interactions and relationships I build with patients, especially converting a dental phobic into someone comfortable in the chair, which is extremely rewarding to me. This focus on relationships is a big part of why I joined Dr. Wolter’s office, where relationships are at the heart of the practice.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Biology, University of Pittsburgh
- Doctorate of Dental Medicine, University of Pittsburgh
Graduating from Waynesboro High School in 1994, I knew I wanted to do something that would make a difference in peoples’ lives, and that led me to the University of Pittsburgh, where I earned my undergraduate degree. During my program, I realized that dental medicine was the path for me. Helping people has always been a passion of mine, and it seemed like a perfect fit. Education is important to me, and I continue to grow and learn in my profession to help provide the best possible care to my patients.
I am a native of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania, but I have moved a bit in my dental career, from Waynesboro to Massachusetts and then back to Chambersburg, PA. I love the area and community, and enjoy the outdoors, especially hiking with my partner Chris. He and I and our two dogs, Lucy and Thor, enjoy a quiet, comfortable life together in our home.
In addition to hiking, I also enjoy cooking new recipes, playing word games, reading fiction, and watching the Steelers win.
