Dr. James Shelton, DMD is a dentist who practices in Salem, OR. He is 59 years old. Read his story
This content was provided by Dr. Shelton "James E. Shelton, DMD As a dentist, I thrive on being able to offer my patients effective, comprehensive, and minimally-invasive dental treatments in order to improve and maintain their oral health, while developing personal relationships with each person I see. Being a dentist means connecting with people: establishing open lines of communication from the first meeting, learning about their oral health needs and their goals, discussing their concerns, educating them about treatment options, and then forming a team to plan their goals. Along the way, we truly get to know each other and the exchanges I have with my patients have made me a better person, as well as a better care provider. Dentistry is rewarding. Not only do I get to use both my technical aptitude and artistic skills, but I get to relieve people from dental-related pain, improve their oral wellbeing which in turn improves their whole body health, and I help patients feel better about their appearance, too. Whether I am providing root canal therapy or a cosmetic procedure, I know that I am making a positive difference, and that is emotionally fulfilling. Education and Continuing Education I graduated with my Doctorate of Dental Medicine, with honors and awards for clinical excellence, from Oregon Health Science University. Since that time I have continued to avidly increase my knowledge of dental care and changes in treatment processes, options, and technologies, through continuing education courses. In addition to extensive training in CEREC® single-visit crowns and cosmetic dentistry, I also attend lectures, seminars, and oral health conferences. It is essential that I live-up to the trust my patients place in me, to provide them with the best care available, and I can only do that by continually learning. Personal Life I was born and raised here in Salem and am proud to still be living here. I’ve been married for 20 years and have two children and a dog. My family, especially my children, is my highest personal priority: I love supporting their growth and various interests. When I have the time, I like flying and other family-centered activities."
