Education, Science and Smile Artistry
Dr. Shawn Pesh trained at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. In his orthodontic residency he became a master of the orthodontic technique known as the Bioprogressive Philosophy. This particular method focuses on sound biological principles of tooth movement and growth projection. Bioprogressive clinicians adhere to a philosophy which draws focus on delivering patients more than just straight teeth.
There is no doubt that the addition of new technologies and material can reduce treatment times and steps. But it will never change the biological principles of orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedics. Patients benefit from Dr. Pesh's principled diagnosis, experience, continuing education and big picture approach to smiles. You've only got one smile, and you can trust Dr. Pesh will make sure its beautiful.

Great smile. Great lifestyle. Great benefits for you.
With crooked teeth increased plaque build-up is common. Food build up between teeth is hard to remove when brushing. Over time periodontal disease and gum disease potential increases. Straight teeth eases cleaning and makes it effective.
Your smile is one of the first things people notice when meeting you. A smile is a big part of making a first impression. A smiling face tells people that you’re an outgoing and worth getting to know.
Emotions are contagious. When you smile your brain releases endorphins and serotonin which improves mood and relieves stress. Smiling makes you feel better inside and appear more attractive to others.
"Smile951 has been my family orthodontist for six plus years. Both my boys have beautiful teeth thanks to Dr. Pesh and his team. I have referred many of my friends & family to Smile951 and honestly I wouldn't go anywhere else. Dr. Pesh and his team are always courteous and professional to my boys and I. Seeing as many patients as he does he still makes us feel like we are his only one each time he sits down with us. Thank you for being our family orthodontist."
"My daughter had an amazing experience the entire 2 years with her braces. All the staff was extremely friendly & knowledgeable! Our office visits became appointments my daughter looked forward to and never dreaded! She has a gorgeous smile now that adds to her beauty and is ecstatic with the results!!"
"Smile951 is such an amazing team. Although I'm excited that I am done with my treatment I am also sad that I will no longer be able to see everyone.
