Margaret Shaw DDS, PA
Dr. Margaret Shaw has been a general dentist for over 20 years with extensive experience in all areas of dentistry. Her focus is restorative and general dentistry for all age patients, with a particular interest in the difficult root canal and extraction procedures that many general dentists refer to a specialist. She currently practices four days a week in the office she owns, with support from her excellent staff of four. Her practice is service oriented, "hands-on,” and reflects her passion for charitable outreach to those in need within the community as well as different corners of the world. Her personal and professional integrity is her highest priority. She credits her success to her faith, the support of family, friends, and colleagues, and her outstanding office staff.

Dr. Shaw received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in June of 1989 and was on the Dean's Honor List from 1987-1989. Before that, she graduated Magna Cum Laude, receiving her Bachelor of Science in May 1986 from Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas.

She began practicing dentistry as an Associate Dentist for Billy G. Shaw, DDS in Dallas in June 1989 through July of 1996 before starting work at her own practice in September of 1995.

In addition to her practice in Glenn Heights, Dr. Shaw is the Owner and President of Elite Mobile Dental which began in June of 2012 and serves the greater Dallas Metroplex, suburbs, and mid-cities. Also, Dr. Shaw is contracted with Exam Works as a peer review doctor and helps determine the legitimacy of claims made with insurance companies and workman's compensation cases. She has also worked as a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas and she is looking forward to returning to teaching after retirement from her practice.


Mission Work

Since 1997, Dr. Shaw has participated in ten dental mission trips to Nicaragua. On these trips, she had the opportunity to work with two premier oral surgeons, Dr. Robert Lamb (Edmond, OK) and Dr. Rex Witherspoon (Springfield, MO). Under the tutelage of these top surgeons and working under extremely challenging conditions, she was exposed to techniques that go far beyond the procedural scope of most general dentists. As a result, she has developed valuable skills and has become proficient at difficult extractions.
Her organizational skills extend beyond managing her own private practice. In the late 1990s, at the request of the director of Central Dallas Ministries (now City Place), she set up their dental clinic, which provides low cost dental care to needy families. Her role involved purchasing all equipment, establishing office protocols, and recruiting the initial staff. She also volunteered in this clinic for several years.
Dr. Shaw is an active participant in Texas Dentists for Healthy Smiles, a volunteer program of donated dental services for disabled, elderly, and medically-compromised people.
She has numerous hours of continuing education, with an emphasis on oral pathology, oral lesions as well as geriatric dentistry.
