      Dr. Sheller has been my daughters orthodontist her whole life for bilateral lip & palate treatment. This is no easy venture, teeth needed to be removed, moved, braces, the NAM when she was just an infant. Dr. Sheller was with us through it all & her delicate handling has been of the upmost comfort to my daughter. There were times when a resident or other providers had to step in & my daughter would speak to her preference for Dr. Sheller at times that I would speak up for her. Dr. Sheller is sensational. She cares deeply about her patients & their lives, asking about the child's day & hobbies. Seattle Children's sure has a gem with her & we always know she will take care of us. Thank you Dr. Sheller!

      Dr. Sheller has a wonderful manner with children (and parents!). She has been very helpful with our daughter's craniofacial and oral care. We appreciate her thorough care and explanations.

      I have been really pleased with the orthodontic work that Dr. Sheller has done for my daughter. I appreciate how she always explained what she was doing and what our future steps would be and included my daughter in the conversation. We really enjoy our visits with her! She's great at building rapport with her young patients and remembers my daughter's interests and past conversations at each visit. Dr. Sheller is not only a competent and skilled clinician, she's an interesting person with a sweet personality. I'm also impressed with the respect that she gives to her assistants. She's a winner and we just love her!

      Dr. Sheller is fantastic!! Not only is she skilled and trained in both dentistry and orthodontics, but her bedside manners and raport with patients is phenomenal. She emphasizes family-first care all the while maintaining top-notch quality care that every child deserves and every parent expects. Our son was born with cleft lip and palate and other extensive dental anomalies, and she is well versed and extremely knowledgeable about his rare medical condition. I can't imagine him being in anyone else's care anymore. He hates the work being done (What child wouldn't right?) But absolutely adores Dr S. to pieces!

      Dr. Sheller is wonderful! My son was born with a cleft lip and pallate. She showed him his molds and explained to HIM what was going to take place so that his upper teeth would not be trapped anymore. She talks to him during his braces adjustments and explains everything. His teeth are straightening out nicely, and she is so gentle and sweet with him.

      She is one of the best dual trained providers in the pacific northwest. :) MUST SEE if your child has any complicated craniofacial issues.

      Dr Sheller is an amazing clinician with the biggest heart! She cares for her patients as if they were her own, with love, respect and integrity. I give her the highest possible recommendation!
