Dr. Sashi is originally from a small town in eastern Kentucky but moved to Louisville before high school. He graduated dental school in 2010 at the University Of Louisville School Of Dentistry in Kentucky where he met his wife Jennifer who is a pediatric dentist in Anchorage, Alaska. After graduating from dental school he and his wife moved to Bethel, Alaska to practice general dentistry.
After two years in the bush, Dr. Sashi was accepted into an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency in Detroit, Michigan. At that time, he received excellent training in office and hospital-based surgery and completed the program in 2017 as Chief Resident covering all of Detroit’s Level I trauma centers, five level II trauma centers, and the University Of Detroit Mercy School Of Dentistry. He was awarded one of 50 worldwide sponsorships by AO Craniomaxillofacial for additional training in cleft and craniofacial surgery at the GSR Institute of Craniofacial and Facial Plastic Surgery in Hyderabad, India.
Dr. Sashi is board-certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and practices full scope treatment in the office, Providence Alaska Medical Center and the Alaska Native Medical Center. He is part of the surgical team for Alaska’s Cleft Lip and Palate Program which is run by the Southcentral Foundation and earned his fellowship with the Association of Osseointegration Craniomaxillofacial (AOCMF) in 2016.
He specializes in maxillofacial trauma and facial reconstruction, corrective jaw surgery, bone/soft tissue grafting, sinus augmentations, dental extractions, placing dental implants, dentoalveolar surgery, oral-facial infections, pathology and outpatient anesthesia. His goal is to provide high quality care to his patient and to make treatment as comfortable as possible.
Dr. Sashi is married with two children and feels lucky to call Alaska his home. When he is not working, you will find him playing soccer with his son, cooking on his Big Green Egg, hiking, fishing, or playing his guitar.
