Shelby Pontera - Dental Hygienist/EFDA
Shelby, who originally comes from West Middlesex, PA, earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene at Youngstown State University where she graduated with honors and was on the dean’s list.
Shelby joined us in the summer of 2016 and though she is new to our practice, she has already become a valuable part of our team.
What I love most about dental hygiene is making patients feel more confident in their smiles, so that they are not afraid to share it with others! I feel passionately about educating patients on the importance of oral health and its systemic link to overall health. One of my favorite parts of the job is seeing patients that once feared coming to the dentist feel comfortable and grow to love it!
When Shelby is not improving our patients’ smiles, you will find her running, eating, or being outdoors. She loves spending time with her boyfriend, family and friends... especially her black lab, Bailey!
