Information coming soon!



After being inspired by her own orthodontist as an adolescent, Dr. Michele Shems decided to make specializing in orthodontia her career goal. She first earned a Bachelor of Arts in history while meeting the pre-med criteria at University of Vermont. Then Dr. Shems enrolled in Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. She not only completed her graduate degree in dental medicine, but took it a step further, to complete another two years of training specifically tailored for a career as a specialist in orthodontics.

After successfully completing major exams and preparing cases over the course of a required ten years, Dr. Shems became a Diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics.

Today, as a proud member of the community, a mother of three, wife, and orthodontist, Dr. Shems approaches each case with careful evaluation. She stays abreast with up-and-coming research, treatment recommendations, and modalities, with a tendency to be much more conservative than most. Dr. Shems takes great pride in providing excellent care to each patient, while making sure they enjoy their time in our office.
