Why Did You Want to Become a Dentist?

For Dr. Shelton, dentistry just felt like the perfect fit right away. In fact, she made the decision when she was 12 and hasn’t looked back since! She loves working with her hands, learning about science, and creating beautiful artistry. Oral healthcare was the ideal opportunity to allow her analytical and creative brain processes to align. Plus, her specific focus on cosmetic dentistry and unique vision to create healthy, strong, and beautiful smiles sets her approach to patient care above the rest! She’s been a practicing dentist for 15 years now, with hopefully many more tocome.


Where Did You Study Dentistry?

After attending Wichita State University, Dr. Shelton graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry with her dental doctorate. She has also attended advanced educational training beyond traditional school with the KOIS Center, a world-renowned post-graduate level dental teaching center. This experience allowed Dr. Shelton to better understand and treat complex cases (such as cosmetic dentistry, full mouth reconstruction, and more complicated bite programs) and treat simpler cases with greater care and knowledge. Today, she is an Invisalign Premier Provider and a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Academy of General Dentistry, Academy of Laser Dentistry, and Seattle Study Club.
