Snehlata Oberoi, M.S., D.D.S.

Orthodontist

Dr. Snehlata (Sneha) Oberoi is an orthodontist with the Center for Craniofacial Anomalies, where she provides assessment and treatment recommendations for children with craniofacial anomalies. She also practices at the UCSF Orthodontic Clinic, where she treats these children.

Oberoi is an associate clinical professor at the UCSF School of Dentistry, and provides teaching and supervision of orthodontic and pediatric dentistry residents and dental students on rotation in the Center for Craniofacial Anomalies.

Oberoi has published many articles in scientific journals, as well as two book chapters. She also serves as a reviewer for the Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal, the International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry and the American Journal of Orthodontics. Her research focuses on developing new methods to assess the outcomes of treatment for cleft lip, cleft palate and other craniofacial anomalies. She also collaborates with the Center's medical geneticists on research seeking to identify genetic mutations, and how they affect dental and facial defects, in various craniofacial anomalies.

Oberoi is a member of the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association, the American Association of Orthodontists, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists and the Indian Orthodontic Society.
