Dr. Divya Khera

Dr. Divya was born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, a quaint town where she enjoyed Lake Erie sunsets and Wegmans grocery shopping. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Duke University with a major in psychology and minors in neuroscience and chemistry.  Wanting to expand her horizons, Dr. Divya moved to the big city and received her dental degree from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine and then stayed on to pursue her love for children at Columbia University-NewYork Presbyterian Hospital’s Pediatric Dentistry program.  

She maintains membership in the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, Women to Women Dental Network, and the New York State Dental Association.  She is also certified in Basic Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.  Inspired by the wonderful mentors in her own life, Dr. Divya pursued a faculty position and serves as an assistant clinical professor in the division of Pediatric Dentistry at Columbia University.  

New York City has really taken Dr. Divya in, and she would not have it any other way.  When she is not cheering on the Duke Blue Devils during March Madness, Dr. Divya enjoys running at Central Park’s reservoir, spending time on the beach, and traveling with her family – especially her adorable 1-year-old niece!
