Ella Shuster, DDS, FAGD, FICOI
Specialty: General and Cosmetic Dentistry
A fourth-generation dentist, Dr. Ella Shuster provides an array of dental care services for the entire family. Dr. Shuster and her highly-trained team of providers deliver superior treatment in a relaxed, comfortable environment while emphasizing compassionate and conservative care for every patient.
Providing Preventive Care
Dr. Shuster and her team believe that good oral health starts with preventive care, so they take the time to teach kids how to properly care for their teeth and create a lifetime of positive dental habits. The practice offers digital radiographs to limit radiation, and employs multiple preventative tools like sealants and ICON technology.
“We try to stop cavities from forming with proper hygiene instruction, and discuss all options available to Mom and Dad to help their little ones brush and floss properly,” she says.
Treating the Entire Family
Dr. Shuster specializes in cosmetic dentistry, and the practice offers numerous effective, long-lasting cosmetic treatments and procedures including tooth-colored fillings, veneers and Invisalign.
“We treat many families; it says something to children when you come to the same office as your parents,” she says. “It motivates them to adopt the behavior and responsibility of one day being an adult while still having a fun dental appointment.”
Dr. Shuster earned her undergraduate degree from Bryn Mawr College and her DDS from NYU College of Dentistry. She completed a general practice residency at Overlook Hospital. A fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, she’s invested thousands of hours in continuing education to provide her patients with the latest dental techniques and technologies while still practicing conservative dentistry.
“I’ll always go above and beyond for my patients…in our practice, everyone’s treated like family,” she says.
