Shari A. Fife, DDS

Shari A. Fife, DDS

Dr. Shari Fife attended San Diego State University obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences. She then entered a summer scholarship program at New York University before being accepted to the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry. She graduated from UCSF in 1991. She then moved to Sacramento to work with her father-in-law, Dr. Richard Fife. In 1995 she limited her practice to orthodontics.

Dr Shari grew up in a small Central Valley farming community where her family still resides. Her first love was ballet until she came to grips with reality that her chances of becoming a prima ballerina at 5' 1" were slim. With ballet out of the equation, her interest quickly became science. She presently has 3 kids, Haley, Bailey and Sariah, their dogs. She enjoys working with her husband at both building houses and the dental office. One of her favorite things to do at the office is decorate the entire office for every occasion whether it be 4th of July, spring, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s, Halloween or Saint Patrick’s Day. She states that “when you walk in, we want you to feel like you are walking into our home, not a scary dental office”. They invite you to stop by and tour their office they built themselves at any time. They take pride in the quality of service they provide, the comfort and cleanliness of the facility they work in and their incredible staff ready to make you feel at home.

by Sandra S

I found out about Craftsman Dental from my father. At the time I was looking for a dentist for me and my 9 year old daughter. My daughter was very scared of the dentist and I was looking for a place that would be a positive experience for her. Craftsman Dental turned out to be that place...

I’ve been using Craftsman Dental with doctors Michael & Shari Fife for 9 years now and am very pleased with their level of professionalism and compassion. They reconstructed their dental office into an extremely pleasing and professional atmosphere. Shari decorates the office the seasonal and holiday touches appropriate...
