BEAM Pediatric Dental Studio, a boutique dental practice for kids, has opened their doors and is now accepting patients. Founded by Dr. Neha Shah, BEAM Dental’s vision is to create a place where children can feel confident in their smile with procedures centered around making kids comfortable first and foremost. 

Dr. Neha graduated Magna Cum Laude from Vanderbilt with a degree in Biomedical Engineering where she then went on to complete the dental program at Harvard. Knowing her passion for dentistry was in helping kids, Dr. Neha trained at Lurie’s Children’s Hospital in Chicago. After training, she returned home to Chattanooga to open BEAM.

“Going to the dentist can be a scary experience for both the kiddo and the parent,” says Dr. Neha. “At BEAM our goal is to eliminate as much stress as possible during the process. We accomplish that through open and honest communication, a thoughtfully designed space, and personal attention for each and every patient. We are grateful to serve the Chattanooga community.”

BEAM Dental’s services include preventive care (such as exams and cleanings, radiographs and sealants), restorative care (such as tooth-colored fillings to keep kids confident, crowns, root canals and extractions), and hospital dentistry if a patient requires a more extensive or lengthy treatment. Dr. Neha also offers concierge dentistry if making a trip to the office is particularly nerve wracking for a child - or simply if their parent’s schedule does not allow it. She also offers emergency dentistry for dental pain or sudden dental injury. Dr. Neha said she and her team of specialists will ensure the patient and their family is well informed and at-ease at the end of every appointment.

Beam Dental Studio is at 3326 Jenkins Road, Suite 102. Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. To contact the office, call 834-8088 or email info@beampediatricdentalstudio.com.
