Dr. Ashima Ahuja joined Pine Dentistry in April 2019 and is proud to serve patients in the Washington, DC area. She attended dental school in Delhi, India and completed her residency at the University of Maryland. She practiced dentistry for 6 years in India before relocating to the United States. Her parents are both physicians so she grew up with a culture of patient satisfaction.
Dr. Ahuja enjoys spending time with her husband, Dr. Sohan Varma, and their dog, a Chorkie named Einstein. In her spare time, she practices yoga and meditation, and is fascinated by the concept of consciousness. Sr. Ahuja really values her relationships with her patients and making them happy is what drives her to provide excellent care in dentistry.
