As a southern California native, Dr. Lohiya is excited to serve the West L.A. and South Bay communities with their oral surgical needs. She graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s of science degree in Anthropology from UCLA and then earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the UCLA School of Dentistry. During this time, she developed an interest in surgery and the rehabilitation of patients with oral disease. She also participated in several volunteer trips to provide dental and medical healthcare abroad. She subsequently completed her Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training at the prestigious University of Washington in Seattle. During her training, she authored several abstracts, book chapters, and journal articles. She was also recognized for her commitment to teaching and providing excellent patient care. 

Dr. Lohiya has a comprehensive background in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery, including dentoalveolar surgery, dental implants, infections, trauma, orthognathic (corrective jaw) surgery, and both benign and malignant pathology. In her free time, she enjoys outdoor activities, traveling, cooking, and exploring beautiful southern California.
