With her degree in fine arts, and her experience from her dental lab technician position she has an aesthetic awareness to dental restoration design. Her artistic eye for, shape, color and form aid the doctor with his aesthetic dental restorations. 

When away from the office, she enjoys time with her family, teaching the fine arts at a local college, designing dental restorations for a local dental lab, commercial photography and creating her own personal artwork.

Shelly works in pediatric and general dental practices and finds dental hygiene both satisfying and rewarding.  She attributes her passion to the wonderful rapport she has with her patients, colleagues, and employers.

When not at the office, Shelly loves cooking and is involved in church activities. Every year the family looks forward to vacationing in Canada on Prince Edward Island with her husband David, three children (William, Alexandra, Kathryn) and dog Seamus.
