Later, he received his Doctor of  Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) from the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey. After practicing as a general dentist in Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland Counties, Dr. Shah gained entrance to the prestigious Ohio State University Graduate Periodontology Program for surgical residency training, where he received a Certificate of Periodontology in 2012.

    Dr. Meera Sahni was born and raised on the Jersey Shore in Rumson, New Jersey where she spent her childhood sailing on the Shrewsbury River.

  • "I've never been a fan of the Dentist chair, probably because in my younger days I spent a lot of time in them. I was sent to this practice for some problems I was having and it's been life changing. Dr Shaw is wonderful, informative, kind and highly skilled. He has given me a smile I never would have had if I hadn't met him..."

  • "For the record - I'm old and have been around the "dental block". I have NEVER had an experience such as I did today. Dr. Shah considered EVERY angle with my unique/complex challenges. I left his office feeling hope and confidence the correct path will be traveled. GRATEFUL is probably the best word I can use to describe my experience today....!"
