Dr. Randall L. Shaw
Dr. Shaw was one of the few students accepted into dental school at the University of Michigan after only three years of undergraduate study.
He knew he wanted to be an orthodontist because it involved science, math, and being hands-on to help people achieve higher self-confidence. After completing his dental degree at the University of Michigan, he moved on to Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, where he graduated with his Master of Science in Orthodontics.
Dr. Shaw then joined the practice of his father, Dr. Alfred Shaw, and Dr. James Ginzler. Today that practice has evolved into The Big Smile Orthodontics.
He was one of the first orthodontists in the state to be certified in SureSmile 3D technology, and one of the only orthodontists fully qualified to use lingual braces. He frequently attends conferences and seminars to further educate himself on new and upcoming technology, and he is one of the original members of the SureSmile Faculty and Clinical Advisory Board.
When he’s not in the office, Dr. Shaw enjoys yoga, skiing, and race-car driving. He has a wife, Hillary, and two daughters, Lindsey and Melanie.
