Meet Dr. Shelby

I’m Dr. Shelby Rohr and I graduated from The Ohio State University with my DDS in 2018. I’m from Nova and moved back to the area shortly after graduation. My favorite thing about dentistry is interacting with my patients! I especially enjoy helping my patients that may be a little more nervous to have the most comfortable visit possible. Outside of dentistry, I enjoy being a dog mom, spending time with friends, traveling and gardening.
