Dr. Shah takes great pride in taking the time to hear the patient’s concerns and goals regarding dental treatment. The most important aspect of patient care revolves around what the patient needs and delivering that care in a manner that makes the patient comfortable and going beyond the expectations of the patient. Each patient is unique, which is why he places an emphasis on sitting down with every patient and developing a treatment plan that both the patient and himself are happy with.
On his free time Dr. Shah is a sports enthusiast, swimmer, and foodie. Dr. Shah also spends time volunteering with Rural Area Medicine and Mission of Mercy serving underserved communities.
