Dr. Shandra

Dr. Shandra

A native to Southern California, Dr. Shandra graduated from UCLA in 2003 with an undergraduate degree in Physiological Sciences. She loved UCLA so much that it is where she chose to earn her dental degree. Somehow tired of the sunshine and warm weather, Dr. Shandra next moved to Boston, where she completed her pediatric dental residency at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Because Dr. Shandra always wanted to serve her hometown community and be close to family and friends, she happily returned to the Antelope Valley.

Dr. Shandra now lives in Palmdale with her dog Bubbles, a very excitable little Maltese. She loves country music, going to the gym, In-N-Out, and of course rooting for UCLA. Go Bruins!
