Shelby Laderoute — Registered Dental Hygienist

I grew up in Los Gatos and attended Valley Christian High School. After graduating high school, I attended the University of the Pacific, to pursue my dream of becoming a dental hygienist. I received my Bachelors Degree in Dental Hygiene from UOP in 2018. I have since moved back home and began working at Orchid Dental Care.
When I am not cleaning teeth, I am either taking a spin class, hiking outdoors with my two labradoodle puppies or wine tasting with friends. It has been my dream to work in the area I grew up in, so Orchid Dental Care is my home away from home!
