Dr. Shaun Lavallee grew up in central Massachusetts. Following high school he pursued a degree in Biology at Boston University and from there, in May of 2013, went on to earn his Doctorate in Dentistry from the University of Pennsylvania.
Following graduation, and in order to better prepare for such a highly-evolving profession, he undertook an additional year of training in general dentistry at the Veteran's Administration Hospital in Wilkes-Barre PA.
Even after leaving academia and pursuing a career in private practice, Dr. Lavallee continues to further his knowledge of the profession by participating in multiple continuing education endeavors. Through involvement in the United States Dental Institute, he has been able to gain a better understanding of orthodontic treatment methods and how these can benefit a patient’s overall health. Other academic activities include membership in the American Academy of General Dentistry, as well as the American Dental Association.
Dr. Lavallee believes in patient-centered care. He is here to listen to patient's concerns, answer any and all relevant questions, and provide professional, honest recommendations that are specifically tailored to an individual patient's goals and desires.
“Dr. Shaun" is beyond excited to be back in the Philadelphia area and looks forward to not only serving the dental needs of patients in Port Richmond and its surrounding neighborhoods, but he also anticipates becoming a supportive member of the community as a whole.
In his spare time, Dr. Shaun enjoys being with his wonderful wife, Lauren, and their one-year old daughter, Logan.
