A Texas native, Dr. Sridhar “Shreed” Sista grew up in the suburbs of Houston in Sugarland, TX. He graduated from Clements High School in 1994, where he was among the leading scorers in the Greater Houston Area for Boys 5A basketball. With a focus on education and pursuing his love for basketball, Dr. Sista attended Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX where he was a student-athlete for 2 years. Deciding to come back home, he transferred to the University of Houston. He joined the UH Men’s’ Basketball team for one year as a walk on and later graduated with degrees in Business and Sports Medicine.
Before becoming interested in the dental field, Dr. Sista landed a job in San Francisco, CA where he worked for a number of years as a Director for a technical training company. He realized his true passion was in medicine, and returned to Texas to attend Dental school and pursue his career in dentistry. Dr. Sista graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center with his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. He started working with Dentiq in 2010 and in 2012 he became a principal dentist/owner at Dentiq – Center for Comprehensive Dentistry. As of April 2017 Dr Sista is the 100% owner dentist of Dentiq Dentistry.
Dr. Sista believes that oral medicine, like all disciplines of medicine, is ever-changing and that it is his responsibility to both himself and his patients to stay at the forefront of the advancements in dentistry. He is dedicated to continuing his education, and has taken a multitude of advanced post-graduate studies in both the surgical and restorative disciplines of implant dentistry. Dr. Sista holds a Fellowship in Oral Implantology from, University of Texas Health Science Center – San Antonio, is also a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantology, completed his Fellowship from the California Implant Institute, and is a member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

Dr. Sista stays busy in his private practice, and performs surgical procedures for other doctors in the Houston area. He loves dentistry, but his real passion is for his family…his wife Manisha – of course without whom none of this would be possible, his 19-year old son Sunvir – who at 6’5” has taken over the basketball reigns, and his precious two daughters Ziya who is 9 years old, and Zeyna who is 7 years old – both whose smiles and laughter lights up the room, and reminds Dr. Sista of what life is truly about!
