Shotell, Melissa

2022 CE Leaders

Dr. Melissa Shotell is a Board Certified Orthodontist and practices in a multi-specialty practice in Sonora, CA focusing on the interplay of Orthodontics and restorative treatment. Dr. Shotell received her DMD at Nova Southeastern University and a General Practice Residency Certificate from Ohio State University. After spending years in general practice treating a broad range of patients, Dr. Shotell returned to complete a certificate and master’s degree in Orthodontics from Loma Linda University. At Loma Linda University, Dr. Shotell focused her training on cutting-edge three dimensional imaging technology for diagnosis and treatment planning for interdisciplinary dentistry. Dr. Shotell considers education to be her passion and regularly consults and lectures on dental technology, clear aligner therapy, orthodontics, in-office clear aligners, office efficiency and workflow, and teamwork. Dr. Shotell shares tips and tricks on orthodontics and clear aligners on social media as alignerbee.

Dr. Shotell created the first in-office clear aligners course teaching digital workflows and fabrication of clear aligners, available and accessible to doctors online. She also launched ClearCorrect’s hands-on training program for clear aligners, made the cover of Dentistry Today in June 2021, and created the first clear aligner fundamentals course that is independent of a major aligner brand. The course is designed to teach aligner concepts that can be applied to the treatment method of the doctor’s choice. Available and accessible to doctors online. Expanding into social media, Dr. Shotell created and moderates the “In-Office Clear Aligners” Facebook Group, where doctors and laboratory technicians can exchange ideas and advance the practice of in-office clear aligners.
