What To Expect During Your Child’s Visit
When your child visits Dr. Shah, he or she will feel instantly welcomed into the Montclair practice. The space is colorful, warm, and beams with happiness and joy and features a play area to help calm and entertain your child as they wait to see the team. With a cute reading nook with various books and a velvet couch to sit on, plus a play kitchen set, your child will associate their dentist visits with fun + a sense of comfort.
The office has tons of natural light, greenery, and a soft color palette, which was designed intentionally to incorporate the principles of biophilic design – as explained by Dr. Shah to the MG team, “incorporating natural textures, patterns, and materials found in nature provide a sense of calm and wellbeing”.
In addition to performing routine dental services, Dr. Shah focuses on the importance of dental hygiene and a healthy diet, making sure that the experience is both fun and educational for both the child and the parent.
More than that, Dr. Shah is all about creating a positive experience for all of her patients, providing dedicated appointments for all patients.
“I provide my patients an elevated dental experience in which there is ample time reserved for each appointment,” shared Dr. Shah. “We do not double book appointments and I make sure the families have enough time to get their questions answered without ever feeling rushed.”
The office even has the ability to see siblings together and provides ample seating for parents and caregivers to stay during their child’s visit.
Dr. Shah ensures that appointment times are convenient and accessible for everyone – with morning, after-school, and Saturday appointments available to be fully booked online.
The practice is also in-network with most major insurance plans and uses the online portal to input insurance information and health information so all you have to do on the day of your appointment is show up.
The New Montclair Practice + Available Treatments
Founded by Dr. Reesha Shah, this Montclair practice is prevention-focused, helping to set the foundation for optimal oral health from an early age. Dr. Shah and her team of dedicated professionals are fully committed to providing the best oral health experience for all of their patients.
“Being a pediatric dentist is profoundly rewarding due to the opportunity to positively impact children’s lives,” shared Dr. Shah. “Building trust, alleviating fears, and instilling good oral hygiene habits from a young age lays the foundation for lifelong dental health.”
Fresh Pediatric Dentistry provides comprehensive dental care for infants, children, and teens using innovative treatment options such as minimally invasive fillings and low-radiation imaging.
More notably, Dr. Shah, also performs infant frenectomies to help alleviate tongue and lip ties using a CO2 laser right in house.
And while nobody plans for their child to need emergency dental care, Dr. Shah and her team are prepared and equipped to handle even the trickiest of cases. Toothaches, broken teeth, and other dental issues can cause your child pain and also interfere with future oral health. This local practice will help save you time and money while also providing a sense of calm knowing that your child’s teeth are healthy and well taken care of.
Meet Dr. Reesha Shah
Dr. Reesha Shah is a board-certified pediatric dentist serving the Montclair area. She began her career as a dentist ten years ago after earning her Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree from Boston University and pursuing her pediatric dentistry residency at Montefiore Medical Center in New York.
Providing the highest level of dental care for children is her utmost priority. Dr. Shah has worked tirelessly to create a warm and nurturing atmosphere in order to create a positive experience for all of her patients.
“I wanted to create a small, personalized office setting where I could form relationships with my patients and take the time to get to know them,” explained Dr. Shah. “I hand-select the best and safest equipment and materials because I want all of my patients to receive high-quality treatment with the care and compassion I would want for my own daughter.”

Outside of her work as a dentist, Dr. Shah eagerly gives back to the Montclair community, supporting local organizations such as the Asian Americans + Pacific Islanders of Montclair — you may have seen her as a sponsor in the recent Lunar New Year celebration event. She is also active in the local schools and libraries, educating children on oral health.
Dr. Shah is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and has been involved in international dental outreach in Haiti.
