Dr. Sanya Arora

Hi, I’m Sanya, a cosmetic dentist and the founder of The Dental Pen. I am passionate about dark chocolate and red wine, but I’m also passionate about maintaining a nice, healthy smile! This is a hard balance to maintain, and it’s a dilemma I saw amongst my patients. Therefore, I created the Dental Pen team to give you evidence-based dental tips on how you can maintain your pearly white teeth while you enjoy all the sweet treats life has to offer. Some of my other hobbies include volunteering, singing and dancing. Follow me on Instagram to see my dental and singing journey, @doctor.singer
