To Educate, Empower and Inspire.
Dr. Shelby Smith received her DDS degree at the University of the Pacific, School of Dentistry in 1990.  Having found her joy in working with children, she went on to UCLA where she earned her Masters in Oral Biology, and took specialty training in Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry. While there she also completed a fellowship in treating children with mental retardation and developmental disabilities.

Moving back to her hometown after college, she began practicing in Antioch in 1993, specializing in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics for the past 23 years.  Wanting to give back to those who don't have access to care, she worked as the staff Pediatric Dentist at the Alameda County Medical Center, Eastmont Dental Clinic where she specialized in behavior management cases and served as a pre-doctoral instructor for UCSF Dental students.

In 2010, Dr. Shelby was asked by the Dental Board of California to serve as an Orthodontic Expert on their Peer Review Board. She is responsible for helping ensure that the public is being served by dentists who are ethical and who practice according to the standard of care.

Dr. Shelby plays a very active role in the dentistry community, and is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, the California Association of Orthodontists, the Contra Costa Dental Society, the American Dental Association and the California Dental Association.All the children

Dr. Shelby is married with five children ages 22, 20, 18, and two 15 year olds. She credits her children with keeping her young and giving her the ability to see the humor in every situation.
As a dental practitioner, Dr. Shelby and her staff work hard to deliver dentistry in a fun, caring and efficient manner, and to work with patients and families towards a lifetime of dental care.  She loves seeing the surprise on a patient’s face when they complete their orthodontic treatment.  Comparing their final result with their “before” picture is always a wow moment for both patient and doctor.
