Dr. Sumei Zhong Sharma is a native of New Orleans. She received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in 2015. Among some of the accomplishments and awards she received during that time included the American Academy of Periodontology, American Association of Endodontist Student Achievement Award, and American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology Accomplishment Award. But her proudest achievement was graduating with top honors and being selected to join the National Dental Honor Society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon.
While in dental school, Dr. Sharma met her husband who is a native of Erie, Pennsylvania. When she decided to pursue a specialty in endodontics, they relocated to Pittsburgh where she completed her two-year residency from University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine and received her Specialty Certification in Endodontics.
Dr. Sharma is an active member of the American Association of Endodontists, American Dental Association, Pennsylvania Dental Association, and the Dental Society of Western Pennsylvania. In her free time, if she is not teaching root canal treatments to the dental residents at the Allegheny General Hospital Dental Department, she enjoys the outdoors and maintaining a healthy lifestyle with her husband and two young sons.
