Here, we strive to cultivate an inspiring and inclusive dental environment through the power of kindness and quality-focused care. Our vision is to bring oral health and vitality to the little ones right in our neighborhood, and provide peace of mind to the parents who accompany them. From toddlers to teens, we’re Chicago’s go-to for gentle, expert pediatric care.

Meet Dr. Amy Shah

Compassionate Care from a Fellow Chicago Mom

Since childhood, Dr. Amy Shah’s inquisitive, hands-on spirit has led her to a lifelong love of creating strong, healthy smiles. At the age of 12, Dr. Amy moved from Arizona’s sun-drenched, desert landscapes to Chicago’s charming, concrete corridors - the place she now calls home.

Dr. Amy attended dental school at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she earned her DMD. After graduating, she began helping others as a general dentist for 5 years, and served as a Dental Director for a community health center in the Windy City for the last 3. With a passion for treating children, Dr. Amy headed back to the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she completed her pediatric dental residency. Today, Dr. Amy is a board-certified pediatric dentist and holds numerous awards in her field. Through her outstanding patient care and attentiveness, Dr. Amy is providing children of all ages and developmental stages with thriving oral health. As an extrovert, her favorite facet of pediatric dentistry is truly getting to know the tiniest, yet most meaningful details about her patients. 

When she’s not in the office, Dr. Amy fills her days with reading, biking, enjoying Chicago’s diverse and delicious food scene, and spending time with her 2 daughters and husband. If you’re looking for a compassionate pediatric dentist near you, she can’t wait to meet you and your family!
