Shaleigh says she always loved going to the dentist as a kid, and that the thought of improving people’s overall health and smiles through dentistry seemed very rewarding. “After shadowing several different dentist’s offices, I knew this was the profession for me!
Born and raised in Abilene, KS, Shaleigh remains a hometown girl. She earned her Associate’s degree in Science in Dental Hygiene at Colby Community College, and continues her education with 20+ CE credits each year. “I enjoy the atmosphere at our office and the team work we all exude,” she says, adding, “People may think we like seeing them anxious, but all we really want is for them to overcome that anxiety and achieve great oral health.”
When she’s not presenting patients with options to enhance their smiles, Shaleigh likes to go out riding horses with her dad, or spend the day shopping with her mom. She also supports Smiles for Life and KMOM, and hopes to travel the USA someday.
