About Dr. Shane Markey

I love being an orthodontist. It’s truly my dream career. To be chosen by an adult patient, or by parents to care for their child, transforming not only their smile, but also their self-esteem, confidence and character, will always be one of the most humbling and gratifying parts of my job.

My two favorite visits that our patients’ make with us include the first visit after braces have been placed, when they see changes in their smile, and I see a whole new confidence developing; and the final day, when their braces are removed. When they see their new smile and look back at their starting photographs, they beam from ear to ear. It’s nothing short of awesome! To have this instrumental role in a young person’s life, or to provide an adult patient with the treatment they have longed for their whole life, is tremendously gratifying. To be chosen as ‘their orthodontist’ makes me the lucky one!
