Dr. Ritu M. Shah, DMD

Dr. Shah has many ties to upstate New York. She was born and brought up in Utica, and received her Bachelor of Science at Union College in Schenectady. In Philadelphia, she then earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Pennsylvania. Returning to Western New York, Dr. Shah received her specialty certificate in the two year Residency in Pediatric Dentistry from the University of Rochester, Eastman Institute for Oral Health. Both Dr. Levy and Dr. Brenner played important roles in her training as a pediatric dentist as they have been members of the Faculty at Eastman for many, many years. Having learned from the best, Dr. Shah feels she had a valuable head start when she moved to Northern Virginia to practice Pediatric Dentistry. Realizing that her heart was in upstate New York, Dr. Shah decided to return home when she was offered the opportunity to join the North Coast Dental Group.

Very passionate about pediatric dentistry, Dr. Shah stays current on new research, techniques and materials in order to provide the best care for her patients. She has successfully completed the multi-part examination of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Like Drs. Brenner and Levy, Dr. Shah is now a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. She is an active member of the American Dental Association and the American Association of Pediatric Dentists. Dr. Shah strives to treat every child with the utmost compassion and understanding so that each experience is the best it can be.

In her free time, Dr. Shah enjoys staying active through zumba and yoga classes, cooking, dabbling in art, and traveling.
