Dr. Mark Shalaby

Dr. Mark Shalaby knew that he wanted to work in healthcare. In fact, before deciding dentistry was the right choice for him, he was in medical school. He knew that he wanted to help people feel the best about themselves, but after spending time in the hospital, he decided it wasn’t the right path for him. Being creative, artistic, and working with his hands were a must for Dr. Mark Shalaby, and cosmetic dentistry was the perfect fit. Since then, he has thrived on helping people get the beautiful smiles they’ve always wanted.

As he grew up, he knew that there had to be a better way administer healthcare; he knew people deserved more. He resolved himself to be a part of the change and offer a different type of healthcare that prioritized being friendly, helpful, and leaving the ego at home. This is exactly the environment that he has worked hard to cultivate at Paradigm Dental, and this is exactly the type of dentistry that he is proud to give each of his patients.

Here, Dr. Mark Shalaby remains committed to providing patient care that is both creative and friendly. Your needs are his top priority every day. From the moment you walk in, you’ll be treated like family, and he will provide dental care that treats you like a whole person, not just someone with dental needs. At Paradigm Dental, he and his brother are proud to have their own in-house lab so that all of your dental work can be done here by the team you already know and trust, the team who knows and respects you.

In his free time, Dr. Mark Shalaby spends time with his girlfriend and his giant goldendoodle Walter.


Walter is our in-office mascot! He loves to run and hang out with his mom and dad on the couch! He isn’t always at the office, but when he is, he is the life of the party. He is currently 1 and full of energy! Make sure to say hi to him if you see him at the office!
