Dr. Nidhi completed her BDS in the year 2008 and MDS in the year 2012 from Saraswati Dental College, Lucknow. She is specialized in Oral Pathology & Microbiology which involves the diagnosis and treatment of all the precancerous and cancerous diseases in the head and neck region. She diagnoses and treats all types of oral lesions such as white and red patches in the mouth, oral ulcers, oral sub mucous fibrosis, any type of swelling of jaw or glands, smoking associated lesions, premalignant and potentially malignant lesions and oral cancer.

At Orthodontic Masters and St. Joseph’s Hospital, Gomti Nagar Lucknow, she perform non invasive brush biopsy and Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) for suspicious lesions. We also perform biopsy of oral tissues to rule out the suspicion of malignancy and for confirmatory diagnosis.

Advanced diagnostic aids such as Immunohistochemistry and PCR are performed for complicated cases for correct diagnosis.

She also performs all dental procedures with special interest in aesthetic dentistry and pediatric dentistry.

Patients with pan masala and gutka chewing habits and smokers are screened regularly for oral cancer and precancerous lesions as the risk of these patients for developing cancer is very high.

Oral cancer awareness camps are regularly organized under her guidance for raising cancer awareness in mass population. She has many high quality research publications to her credit and has also authored a book.
