Raised in Nevada City, California—and educated at UC Davis, New York University and Boston University—Dr. Sheri Bernadett brings the highest levels of professionalism and Endodontic practice techniques to her patients.
Science and health care have been passions of Dr. Bernadett since a young age.

She graduated with honors from NYU with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree.
Dr. Bernadett moved to Boston for post-graduate Endodontic training at Boston University (BU). At BU, she trained under Dr. Herbert Schilder, the influential developer of the Schilder Technique which set the standard for endodontic programs today. Dr. Bernadett completed her CAGS (Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies) at BU, and also her Master of Science in Dentistry (MScD).
Dr. Bernadett returned to Nevada County in the 1990s and practiced in Grass Valley and Nevada City for more than two decades. Dr. Bernadett has taught Endodontics at UC San Francisco, volunteered in clinics in Nevada County and Mexico, and is active in professional dental associations. She currently serves as President-Elect of the Butte-Sierra District Dental Society.

A Philosophy Centered on the Patient
Root Canal treatment shouldn’t be scary or painful. I feel personally responsible to make my patients’ experience a great one, and I’m happy to say that patients tell me overwhelmingly that they were pleasantly surprised with their root canal experience.
The biology of the tooth hasn’t changed over the last few decades but the technology we use is constantly changing. These technological advances allow us to treat and save a tooth with simple and predictable techniques. While I incorporate all of the latest technology and clinical advancements in my endo practice, my focus continues to be centered on creating a positive patient experience.
Most teeth can be treated in one visit. The anesthetic technique I use provides an almost ‘sting free’ injection that numbs your tooth quickly and completely. It is my personal commitment to ensure you are comfortable and pain free without the need for heavy sedation or drugs.
