Dr. Christina Skelton

Dr. Skelton

Her passion for dentistry began early in her childhood as Dr. Skelton would watch her father work as a master ceramist. Being so close to her father’s work, she met amazing dentists and began to see them perform wonderful transformations of people’s smiles. Along with an early positive perspective of dentists, Dr. Skelton also loved studying sciences which propelled her to graduate from Andrews University with a Bachelor in Biology. She then continued on to earn her DDS from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. 

Another force that drove Dr. Skelton’s career forward was her desire for human interaction and effective communication. She believes that a large portion of dentistry is being able to communicate freely with patients in a way that truly allows them to understand the complexities of dental work and oral health. Along with effective communication and an innate desire to help others, Dr. Skelton prides herself on her ability to continually strive for the absolute best, not only for herself and her patients, but also for the study of dentistry. 

Although she currently resides in Folsom, CA, Dr. Skelton has lived in several cities throughout the United States. She has always enjoyed traveling, exploring new towns, and going on guided walks. When she’s not at the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband, her daughter, and her two dogs.

Dr. Erica Hsiao

Periodontist

Dr. Skelton

Erica Hsiao, DDS, MS is excited to join Esthetic Dental Reflections. She received her doctorate from the University of California, Los Angeles School of Dentistry where she became interested in periodontics, regeneration, and dental implants. This resulted in a move to Chicago where she obtained her Master’s degree and Certificate in Periodontics and Dental Implants at University of Illinois, Chicago. Soon after, Dr. Hsiao became a Diplomate of  the American Board of Periodontology, the only specialty board certification in periodontics and dental implant surgery.

Dr. Hsiao is a member of the American Academy of Periodontology, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the Sacramento District Dental Society. She has volunteered her dental services abroad in Honduras, taught General Practice Residents as their staff attending periodontist, and worked to improve the oral health of our Veterans at the VA Northern California McClellan Dental Service.

Dr. Hsiao values her patient interactions and looks forward to listening, communicating, and educating each of her patients in order to work together to restore periodontal health and oral function.

Dr. Sheri Bernadett

Dr. Skelton

Folsom Dental Esthetics is thrilled to have the support of Dr. Sheri Bernadett and her experience as a local endodontist. Dr. Bernadett will allow us to offer root canals, dental injury treatments, dental implants, and more — all from within our Folsom dentist office.

Dr. Sheri Bernadett grew up in nearby Nevada City. Her grandmother was a pioneering research physician in California, and her father was a well-known urologist in the Grass Valley community. That combination drove Dr. Bernadett’s love for the field of medicine.

While in Nevada County, she developed a passion for dentistry that brought her to the UC Davis dental program for her undergraduate degree. It was there that she began to fall in love with Northern California. Once she completed the program, she was accepted to the prestigious New York University Dental School (NYU), where she completed her graduate degree before ending up at Boston University to train in Endodontics. It was at BU that she trained under Dr. Herbert Schilder. Dr. Schilder is responsible for the “Schilder Technique,” a technique that is now the industry standard for filling root canals in the United States.

(Fun Fact: Dr. Schilder’s Technique is so popular in endodontic circles, it was referenced by the fish in Finding Nemo.)

Afterward, Dr. Bernadett completed her Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS). She moved back to Nevada City to begin her own private practice and became President of the Butte-Sierra District Dental Society. We are so pleased to bring her on board here with Dr. Hsiao, Dr. Skelton, and the rest of our staff. She brings a high level of professionalism, some of the most advanced training that the endodontic industry has to offer, and is committed to creating positive experiences for her patients.

What To Expect For First-Time Patients

As you walk through our doors, you’ll be greeted with a warm smile and helpful assistance from our front office team. They can answer any questions about our office and necessary paperwork. While you’re waiting for your appointment, you can enjoy some easy-listening Pandora radio and a complimentary drink from our beverage station. Next, one of our friendly team members will bring you into the operatory where our dental hygienist will take photos and x-rays. Dr. Skelton will then conduct an oral exam and discuss the state of your oral health. Any issues or findings will be explained by Dr. Skelton, and she will recommend a treatment plan if necessary. Also, if you are unhappy with your smile, Dr. Skelton will take the time to discuss elective treatments that will help. Any questions or concerns will be answered or explained so that both you and Dr. Skelton are on the same page about your dental health.
