Shaw Family Smiles

Meet the Team at Shaw Family Smiles

Carrying on the traditions of providing exceptional dental care to her patients is important to Dr. Christina Shaw! After all, her father started these traditions nearly forty years ago.

Dr. Shaw is honored to be working with many of the same team members who assisted her father in building the excellent reputation of the practice over the years. You can take the time to learn more about our team members here so you'll feel right at home when you visit our office. 

Dr. Christina Shaw


Dr. Christina Shaw holds a BA from Georgetown University, a DMD from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, and an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) certificate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is very excited to be returning to her home state of Massachusetts and taking over for her dad after practicing for three years in northern Virginia.

Dr. Shaw is a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon (the Dental National Honor Society), the American Dental Association, the Massachusetts Dental Society, the Worcester District Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry. She is also certified to provide Invisalign and in the use of the soft tissue diode dental laser.

Happy to be returning home with her husband, Dr. Shaw is excited to be near her parents, siblings, nieces, and nephews, all of whom live in the Wachusett Region. She is also honored to be carrying on the tradition of high quality dentistry started by her father nearly forty years ago, as he is retiring.

When she's not looking after patients, Dr. Shaw can be found running (she's completed seven marathons!), reading, and traveling.
