We are pleased to announce a new dentist to our team here at Michaels Center for
Dental Excellence: Dr. Andrew Vallo, DDS.
Dr. Andrew Vallo was born and raised in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, spending most of his childhood in the town of Murrysville, Pennsylvania. As a freshman in high school, he spent the summer working at a local orthodontics office, and it was this experience that lead him to pursue a career in dentistry. Dr. Vallo completed his undergraduate work at Michigan State University, earning a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Sciences. He then attended The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, earning a Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Dr. Vallo spent three years practicing with a Federally Qualified Health Center, providing quality care to communities of high dental need. For the past eighteen months, he has been the only dentist at the Shelby Health and Wellness Center located in the small town of Shelby, Ohio.
Dr. Vallo has a firm belief in patient centric dental care. He strives to ensure that each of his patients has a full understanding of their current dental status, as well as the ideal treatment recommended for their overall oral health. Dr. Vallo understands that dental anxiety is a common barrier to receiving consistent care, and it is his mission to create a comfortable and safe environment for all of his patients. Dr. Vallo believes that learning is a lifelong journey, and each year he takes the opportunity to participate in numerous continuing education seminars that far exceed the requirements of the state dental board. Dr. Vallo is honored to join Dr. Michaels and her team and looks forward to meeting you!
Dr. Vallo and his fiancé, Dana, recently fulfilled a long time dream of moving to Florida. Most of their favorite hobbies involve spending time outdoors with their Goldendoodle, Ruthie, and Labradoodle, Samson. They are excited to explore the local hiking areas and spend time at the beautiful beaches. Dr. Vallo also enjoys playing golf and tennis and training for organized running events. He still holds true to his Pittsburgh roots, and loves to cheer on his Steelers, Pirates and Penguins.
