Dr. Amie Shah
Dr. Amie is a board certified pediatric dentist who grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and made her way to New York to study economics/pre-dentistry at NYU where she graduated with honors. She then continued her dental education at Temple University where she had the opportunity to participate in dental mission trips to Honduras and the Dominican Republic to help serve those without access to dental care. She returned to NYC to complete a general practice residency at St. Barnabas Hospital, followed by a specialty training program in pediatric dentistry at Maimonides Medical Center where she served as chief resident.
Dr. Amie grew up in a large family and always had an inclination towards working with children. She knew at a young age that she wanted to pursue a career in dentistry as she suffered from dental phobia herself as a child. This led her to want to help change that for future generations of children, making pediatric dentistry a perfect career for her. She truly believes in giving each child a positive experience, and hopes to help alleviate fear in dental phobic patients by making every dental visit friendly and fun.
Outside the office, Dr. Amie loves traveling, volunteering, exploring the city, trying new restaurants, and spending time with family/friends. She is excited to provide quality care for you and your family with a smile!
Dr. Adrian Arreola
Adrian Arreola, DMD, better known as Dr. Adrian, was born and raised in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. After graduating from the University of Delaware with a degree in Neuroscience, Dr. Adrian found himself in Philadelphia, where he worked in translational research at the University of Pennsylvania. After a couple of years working as a scientist, Dr. Adrian decided to trade in his lab coat for a white coat & attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine.
Upon graduating from Penn Dental, Dr. Adrian continued his post graduate training by completing a one year General Practice Residency at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center and his two year Pediatric Specialty training in Manhattan at the Mount Sinai Hospital. During his specialty training, he excelled in evidence based & hospital dentistry while serving as Chief Pediatric Dental Resident. Dr. Adrian is an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, is ABPD board eligible and is currently an Attending Dentist at Mount Sinai Hospital where he spends time teaching and training residents in the Pediatric Dental Residency program.
Dr. Adrian is no stranger to the dental world, his father was a practicing general dentist for 35+ years prior to retiring. Dr. Adrian tailors his approach to what he learned from watching his father take care of his patient’s for all those many years- treating every patient as if they were an extension of his family. His personal aim is to build long lasting relationships through warm hearted and jovial conversations; he believes he has as much to learn from each patient as they do from him.
Recently Dr. Adrian, his fiance Allison, and their weiner dog Oscar, decided to move to the garden state for a change of pace from the hustle and bustle of the big city. In his free time he enjoys cheering on his favorite Philadelphia sports teams, listening to live music, spending a beach day with his loved ones, and staying active through running, biking & the occasional gym day. If you see him around town, be sure to say hi, he is looking forward to seeing you soon!
