Team Member Spotlight On … Shelby

At St. Petersburg Dental Center, we’re lucky to have a full team of people at both locations who take pride in their work and put patients first. One of these people is the receptionist at our St. Petersburg location, Shelby. As the first person our patients see when they walk in, Shelby’s role is vital. It’s her friendly smile and accommodating manner that puts our patients at ease before an appointment.

Shelby has been with us since 2016. Originally interested in the hospitality industry, Shelby was a full-time student in search of a change. She found that change in dentistry. At first, Shelby was simply curious to find out if she’d be interested in a career in the dental industry, but now she is passionate about interacting with patients and having the opportunity to learn something new every day. She wants patients to know that there is no need to be scared or nervous. “All of our doctors and hygienists are very nice and gentle,” Shelby said.

When she’s not at work, Shelby enjoys being outdoors. She loves the beach, golfing, kayaking, and camping. Another passion of hers is riding horses. In fact, she showed in the World Championship Horse Show two years in a row. In addition to spending time outdoors (with or without horses), Shelby loves to spend time with her family and friends.

Shelby is just one of the many people who make our practice what it is. If you live in the St. Petersburg or Clearwater areas, find out firsthand why we’re the dental practice for you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment at one of our two locations.
