So here’s the inside scoop:
Dr. Christina Shaw is a native Californian who grew up in Folsom. She earned her Degree in Medicine from Western University School of Health Sciences in Pomona, and graduated in the top 10 percent of her class. Dr. Shaw is also a clinical director for the Healthy Smiles program with the Special Olympics. She is a member of local dental societies, Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society and American Association of Women Dentists.
Dr. Shaw and her husband relocated back to their hometown since having their two boys, Tanner (almost 3 years old) and Kellen (6 months old) to be closer to family and to enjoy the local community they both grew up in. In her spare time, she enjoys exploring the outdoors with their husky, Niya, trying new restaurants and following her favorite Bay Area sports teams. Go Giants!
I love my community because: It helped shape me into the person I am today. There is nothing like the feeling of growing up in a place where you feel safe and your presence is valued. A good community makes an impact on others and the joy that it brings can be contagious.
I chose to work with children because: First impressions always last and kids always bring a new perspective on life. If I can get kiddos off on the right start with their dental health, hopefully it increases their chances of a healthy future.
My hobbies include: Working out, exploring the outdoors with my family, tossing around the frisbee or kicking the soccer ball around.
