Dr. Mehta was raised in Toronto, Canada and received his Bachelors of Science degree with honors in Life Sciences, a program directed at the pre-medical and pre-dental sciences, from Queen's University. Dr. Mehta then continued his education by pursuing a four year Doctorate degree in Medical Dentistry (D.M.D.) from the University of Pennsylvania.
Due to his high academic achievement, Dr. Mehta was then accepted into the post-doctoral program at Boston University - a program revered for its reputation in training the highest level of academically oriented clinician.
Under the tutelage of Dr. Herbert Schilder, considered by many to be one of the modern-day fathers of Endodontics, and Dr. Jeffrey Hutter, a past-president of the American Association of Endodontists, Dr. Mehta also completed a three-year Master of Science in Dentistry. This Master's degree was directed at learning the microbiological, physiological, and biochemical processes behind inflammation, a critical component involved in Endodontics.
Dr. Mehta's research was subsequently published in Infection & Immunity in 2002.
Dr. Mehta is an active member of the American Association of Endodontists, California Association of Endodontists, American Dental Association, California Dental Association and Orange County Dental Society. He has been in private practice in the field of Endodontics since 1999.
