Melanie Shang, DMD, Board Certified



A beautiful smile is a confidence-builder. It is my privilege to guide you through your orthodontic journey, and I am excited to help you achieve your dream smile. My goal is for you to have the best patient experience.


I love all things chocolate, fruits, and macarons. My favorite singer is Taylor Swift. My favorite vacation is visiting the beach.

Volunteer/Service Experience

I like spending time with family and friends, baking, painting, exercising, and exploring nature. I enjoy discovering restaurants in Saint Louis with my husband, Michael. I love traveling to new places to sightsee and learn about other cultures. I stay up-to-date with current orthodontic knowledge through reading and attending conferences.
