Meet the Dentist
Dr. Judith Shea
Dr. Judith Shea has loved practicing dentistry since 1997, after earning her Bachelor’s degree and Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Colorado in beautiful Denver, CO. While she was initially drawn to offering general and family dentistry to patients of all ages, Dr. Shea discovered a particular passion for working with children after she spent four and a half years providing dental care at the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation in Belcourt, North Dakota as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Public Health Services.
Once she completed her service in Belcourt, Dr. Shea moved to Rochester to pursue her Certificate in Pediatric Dentistry from the world-renowned programs at Eastman Dental Center at the University of Rochester and Strong Memorial Hospital. Dr. Shea and her husband, also a dentist, fell in love with Rochester and decided to establish their lives and practices here. Dr. Shea, who is Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of both the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), has been practicing pediatric dentistry in Rochester and loving her community since 2006. Guided by her years of experience and refined dental knowledge, Dr. Shea takes pride in offering a realistic approach to dentistry while focusing on meeting the needs of her patients with compassionate, personal, and high-quality dentistry.
When she’s not providing care to her patients in the office, Dr. Shea loves spending time outside, in the community, and traveling to visit her family in different parts of the country. You can often find her enjoying the weather and scenery at a local park with her dogs, or actively participating in her church’s activities. Whether you’re seeking expert care for your child’s first dental visit or orthodontic treatment for your child or teen, Dr. Shea and her entire team look forward to welcoming you into our dental family.
