Shivani Kamodia

Shivani's desire to improve people’s lives resulted in creating her own major, Environmental Health Sciences.

For Shivani Kamodia, a member of UB’s Environmental Network, being an environmentalist and studying dentistry go hand in hand.  A self-identified people person, Shivani Kamodia’s desire to improve people’s lives resulted in creating her own major, Environmental Health Sciences to study the connection between health and the environment.  While working in UB’s dental clinic, Shivani saw an opportunity to lessen the harmful environmental effects of health care services and combine her passion for helping people with her love for the environment.  The knowledge Shivani will gain during her studies will eventually be transferred to her practice as a dentist, lessening her personal environmental impact and inspiring other dental professionals to do the same.
