Meet The Team

DR. LOPA SHAH

Once I had a dream, a dream to achieve something enriching, something igniting, a dream to  bring a smile, a dream to be a world-class dentist. Since the age of 15, I have been working hard to be where I am today, but yes, miles to go before I sleep!

My love for people, sharing their pains has paved my journey towards building a community where we can celebrate the beauty of smiles, a modest abode for myself and my people, the Charter Oak Dental, where I get to meet people and relieve them of their dental distresses.

Dentistry for me has been less of a profession, more of my Life’s calling. The sparkles in my patient’s eyes when they see amazing results after restorations, root canal treatments, crowns, bridges, veneers, Invisalign, and other dental procedures, give me immense pleasure. Since my early childhood, the value of consistent learning and growing has been instilled in me, so I always look forward to expanding my horizons, seeking out opportunities to learn about the latest developments in the dental world. I also feel appreciative of the supportive team that has helped me in turning my dreams to reality in such a short span.
