Ex-Liverpool trainee Dhanda maxbet swept home Jefferson Montero's cross after coming on as a substitute in Swans' manager Graham Potter's first game in charge.
Oli McBurnie earlier equalised when he smashed home a rebound on 71 minutes.
The Blades had led after 62 minutes when George Baldock fired in after defender Enda Stevens' cross.
The pre-match talk had been about Wales winger Ben Woodburn, signed on loan from Liverpool, tormenting Swansea, but it proved to be another summer signing from Anfield who stole the headlines.
Dhanda, a former West Brom and Liverpool trainee, only came onto the field a matter of seconds before sweeping home what proved to be the winner on 85 minutes.
The Swans, in their first game back in the Championship following their Premier League relegation, had threatened a winner when debutant Barrie McKay rattled the crossbar with a volley.
Both new Swansea manager Potter and Blades boss Chris Wilder named three new faces in their starting XIs.
Swedish striker Joel Asoro, 19, signed from Sunderland, ex-Nottingham Forest winger McKay, and Kosovan Bersant Celina, signed from Manchester City, all started for the Swans behind striker McBurnie.
For the hosts, goalkeeper Dean Henderson, on loan from Manchester United, maxbet former Brentford centre-back John Egan and striker David McGoldrick all started,
The Blades began brightly and should have taken the lead after 20 minutes when Lee Evans' curling effort just evaded the far post.
Swansea were cautious and looked to hit the hosts on the break but rarely threatened, before improving their tempo after half time.
They were a little unlucky to trail after Baldock's goal and had almost levelled through a Jay Fulton header, acrobatically saved by Henderson, before McBurnie's equaliser.
He was proving difficult to contain and after powering home the leveller he saw a splendid header drift just wide with Henderson beaten before McKay's thunderous volley struck the crossbar.
McKay's debut was eye-catching but it was the introduction of substitute Montero that proved the real difference as he terrorised the Blades defence before teeing up the winner with five minutes left.
His fine cross was controlled by McKay, maxbet who found Dhanda despite being fouled and the teenager fired home to give Potter a perfect start to life in the Championship.
