Dentist

Blending art with science, dentistry is my passion. I consider it a privilege to be a dentist, to have a real impact on the health of my patients. I studied to become a dentist right here in California at UC San Francisco and graduated in 2006. Sacramento is my hometown, and I spent my undergraduate years at UC Davis, so I
returned from the Bay Area to establish a dental practice in Northern California.

My approach towards dentistry is best described as comprehensive. This allows me to handle the basics, like cleanings and cavities, and the complex, like oral surgery and orthodontics. This means that everyone in your family can receive their dental care at the Placerville Dental Group.

While dentistry occupied much of my time when I first started, my marriage to Nancy in 2010 began my life as a family man and a father. Our daughter Ella entered our world one year later, and her younger brother Liam followed shortly after. In 2017, we welcomed our twin boys Jonah and Derek. At home, I enjoy caring for our own garden beds as a way to relax at the end of the day.

When I am at the office, I make my recommendations for your dental care the same way I would for my own family. My parents, grandfather, and other relatives live nearby, and I often serve their dental needs. You undoubtedly have many of the same concerns that they do, and I understand this. Therefore, when I treat a son or daughter, mother or father, I suggest honestly based on the best possible care for your teeth.

I look forward to serving you and your family here at our dental practice. Please come in to meet our staff and me in our convenient office. We promise to care for your family as we would our own.

Doctor Barinder Cheema grew up in Vancouver, Canada, and there he had an uncle who was a dentist. “It was my uncle who I saw changing smiles and building confidence in people while practicing dentistry. It became inspirational to see such big changes among people walking in with pain and out with a smile. From that point onward, I knew what to pursue.” Dr. Cheema received his dental degree from the University of Washington in Seattle and now brings his skills in restorative dentistry to the Yuba City Dentistry Group.

Dr. Cheema is especially useful to our Yuba City practice, as he speaks three languages: English, Punjabi, and Hindi. With these abilities added to his expertise in dentistry, we can offer our services in a comfortable environment to the many families in both Yuba City and Marysville areas.

You can also be assured that Dr. Cheema will clearly explain the state of your dental health, clarify the procedures you can choose from to protect and restore your teeth, and provide you with a friendly dentist who takes the time to answer your questions to your satisfaction.

Last but not least, Dr. Cheema is ready for your pick-up game of hockey, as he used to represent British Columbia in this sport! Since the Sacramento Valley is not exactly known for its winter sports, he now passes his free time with horseback riding, hiking, and travel.
