Registered Dental Hygienist

Shelby graduated from Colorado Northwestern Community College in 2004 with an Associates in Science degree. She is a native to Palisade and graduated from Palisade High School.

Shelby has deep roots in the area. Her grandparents had a peach farm in Palisade and she spent a lot of her childhood running the orchard. He mother now lives on this farm, keeping the family tradition alive. Shelby fell in love with her little town and was lucky enough to be able to buy a house in Palisade as an adult. Shelby’s son now runs around the orchard and is the light of her life. She also has two dogs and two cats, a full house! Her family enjoys four-wheeling, going for drives, and jamming to music.

Shelby has loved every minute of practicing hygiene over the last 18 years, the last 11 of which has been here at Ruby Canyon Dental. It brings her so much joy to help my patients with their oral health, as well as getting to know them and their families. She has worked hard to make the dental experience easier for patients by taking her own experiences as the patient and learning how to make the procedures more comfortable and tolerable. Shelby will always listen and educate patients to give them the best treatment that works for their personal needs. She strives to make it easier for patients to come in and get their dental needs taken care of as well as coach them through the difficult dental moments to aid with comfort, relief of pain and stressed involved during the dental emergencies. She loves her patients — they are why she does what she does! She want to thank her patients for their trust and loyalty; it means everything to her!
