Dr. Satish I. Hiremath Dds

Dr. Hiremath was born in Easton, PA but grew up in Kalamazoo, MI. From an early age, he knew that he wanted to have a career in the medical field because of his father, who was a surgeon for over 33 years. 

Dr. Hiremath attended the University of Michigan where he played varsity tennis for the Wolverines.  He then went on to dental school in Washington, D.C. at Howard University. 

On a trip to Oro Valley, visiting his former tennis coach in 1989, Dr. Hiremath fell in love with the community and moved here in 1990 after graduating dental school. 

Since 1990, Dr. Hiremath has been involved with the community which included being the title sponsor for events such as the Fourth of July, the Oro Valley Holiday Parade and even donating the Children’s wing of the Oro Valley Public Library.

Dr. Hiremath’s community involvement also included him being elected President of the Southern Arizona Arts and Culture Alliance, as well as being elected the Mayor of Oro Valley from 2010-2018. 

Dr. Hiremath was also named the Community Leader of the Year in 2017. 

Dr. Hiremath’s philosophy  for his dental practice is very simple. While exceptional dentistry has always been the foundation, the primary focus of this practice is on treating people with kindness, compassion and respect.

While all dental practices may seem the same, they are not.  See why Dr. Hiremath has been in practice for over 28 years and why patients view him and his team as more than just a dentist. Come experience the difference at Hiremath Family Dentistry

Office Manager

Hello, my name is Vanessa. I have been working here since September of 2016. The second I walked into Hiremath Family Dentistry, I knew I wanted to be a part of their team. I love what I do and enjoy being part of a professional dental team that provides exceptional dental care to our patients. I have been in the dental field for 20 years and started out as a dental assistant. I have experience in almost every aspect of dentistry and love expanding and using that knowledge in any way I can. My passion for patient advocacy, building personal relationships, working through treatment and insurance concerns and creating financial plans lead me to the front aspect of the dental office. To calm fears, answer questions and help make treatment possible, especially in a soothing environment is rewarding to me. Another passion of mine is my family! I love spending time with my three amazing children Alyssa, Andrew and Marcus. We enjoy random adventures and spoiling our puppy Rosie.

My name is Lorena but most people know me as “Rena”. I started working at Hiremath Family Dentistry in September of 2000 as a dental assistant and have seen many of our younger patients grow into adults over the years. I did move to Colorado in 2009 for 2 years while my husband went to school but came back to work for Dr. Hiremath in 2011.  In 2018, my role changed to Vice President of Operations for Bell Dental Arts but I am still often in the office helping out when needed.  I have 2 wonderful children and a wonderful husband.  I also own my own website design business.  I am blessed to be part of such a caring and exceptional dental office and will always see Hiremath Family Dentistry as part of my family.
