Why Did You Want to Become a Dentist?
At a young age, Dr. Shaw had extremely misaligned teeth. In fact, she never smiled in public because she felt so insecure about her appearance. Once she had orthodontic treatment, her life was wholeheartedly changed for the better! She realized that she wanted to be able to provide that same lasting happiness to others in need – and the rest is history.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Shaw completed her dental doctorate at Midwestern University in Glendale. Before that, she worked as an orthodontic assistant for five years, which gave her a lot of insight into the importance of having a properly aligned smile. She’s also always had a very strong interest in holistic/biomimetic dentistry and regularly pursues continuing education on the topic to this day in order to stay caught up on the latest developments. She is certified in the SMART protocol and Invisalign. She’s also a proud member of the following organizations:
- American Dental Association
- Arizona Dental Association
- Academy of General Dentistry

- American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine
