Meet Dr. Cheema

Dr. Barinder Cheema

Dr. Barinder Cheema

A Canadian native, Doctor Barinder Cheema might have become a hockey player instead of a dentist, but a certain uncle in his family had a very great influence on his eventual choice of career. Visiting his uncle’s dental office, “it became inspirational to see such big changes among people walking in with pain and out with a smile.” As a result, Dr. Cheema crossed the border to the University of Washington in Seattle and earned his degree in dentistry. Now he brings his abilities to save teeth and restore smiles to the Placerville Dental Group.

Dr. Cheema enjoys taking the time to hear about any problems you may have with your teeth. He always seeks to clearly explain the state of your oral health, to point out the procedures that can help you protect it, and to answer any of your questions before starting treatment.

A trilingual dentist, Dr. Cheema speaks Punjabi and Hindi, alongside English. His goal is for every patient to feel comfortable in our local office and for all clients to have the same experience they had with his uncle — to walk out with a smile!

Since hockey is a little-known sport in our area, Dr. Cheema now spends his free time with hiking, horseback riding and travel.
