We provide a fun and caring atmosphere between ourselves and our patients. We have been with Dr. Shanahan's practice for a total of 50 years of combined experience in orthodontics. Each of us takes pride in our job; recognizing the important role that we have in making sure that each patient has an enjoyable orthodontic experience.

Successful orthodontic treatment requires all elements of good teamwork – communication, honesty, loyalty, dependability, hardworking, respectfulness and commitment. We will work with you and your child to provide an ideal treatment result, while having a fun and rewarding experience in our practice.


Carolina — Front Office Coordinator

Hi my name is Carolina,I am usually the first person whom you talk to when you call to make an appointment. I am the scheduling / financial coordinator. I have been working with this practice since 2005 and I am grateful for the opportunity I have to interact with all of our patients.

My two teenage sons keep me busy with all their activities. We love going to Disneyland because it’s the happiest place on earth and visiting my home town in Nicaragua where we can enjoy spending time with our family & friends.


Dr. Shanahan is a great Orthodontist and I know you will love our office.


I look forward to talking to you!

Gabby - Registered Dental Assistant

Hello, and welcome! I’m Gabby, also a registered dental assistant here at Shanahan Orthodontics. I’ve been working in the orthodontic profession for over a decade. It’s a joy developing relationships with our patients and their families, while providing excellent orthodontic care.


I was born and raised in the beautiful Napa Valley. My husband and I love spending all our free time with our little one, Alex. Some of the things we like to do is going camping, bike riding, and the fun family gatherings.


Being part of the Shanahan Team is such a blast! Working with patients to accomplish their treatment goals is truly rewarding. It is such a delight seeing patients light up when their braces come off. I look forward in celebrating a new smile with you.

Hi, I’m Amber! A little about myself; I was born in Colorado, but raised in the good old Napa Valley since the age of two. I recently have gotten married to my wonderful husband Jake on Friday July 13th, 2012. We have two amazing dogs, Zoe and Trigger, and when I’m not assisting patients, my husband and I enjoy playing sports, attending sporting events, concerts, camping and  boating.


My greatest joy in working at Dr. Shanahan’s Orthodontics Office is interacting with both young and adult patients, getting to know them and watching their self - esteem change and grow. I look forward to getting to know each and everyone of you.
