Dr. Padval also believes in giving back to the community. While attending NYU, she participated in a pediatric dentistry outreach program, as well as volunteering for Odyssey House, where she provided dentistry for patients in substance abuse rehabilitation programs. She has also worked in Nicaragua, providing outreach and placing dental implants, and previously volunteered her time as a zookeeper at the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary!
When she is not practicing dentistry, she is traveling for her dental CE course (most likely!) and also enjoys drawing, painting, gardening, tending her fresh and saltwater aquaria, and spending time with her family.

Why dentistry? My simple, honest answer is, “Because I did not want to go to art school!”
Back in India, I had already secured admission to the topmost art school (which was my dad’s dream for me). I was great at art, but I always had more inclination toward medicine, so when the counselor told me that medical admission was closed, I was really upset as that meant that art school was inevitable. Then the counselor suggested dental as an alternate choice, and I honestly enrolled myself in dental school just to avoid going to art school!! That has been the best decision of my life! My first dental school in India was an accidental decision, but when I went to NYU College of Dentistry the second time around, it was a well-thought-out decision. Dentistry is this amazing blend of art, science, and psychology (in my humble opinion) that has fascinated me for over a decade. Dentistry is my “Ikigai!” (a Japanese concept of finding a purpose that is fulfilling in all aspects of life.)
With that said, my journey took me through several workplaces and different models of dental practice, such as corporate dentistry, community clinic dentistry, private group practice, etc. Still, I realized that to get my vision into reality, I needed to have complete control of things, and here I am!
I consider myself lucky, as while taking over Diamond Dental of Sacramento, I acquired the best team of similar-minded professionals, Tiffany, Shayna, Luz, and Tracie, who are all very skilled, patient, and committed to providing positive dental experience in every way!
