Friendly Geneva, OH Dentist
Get to Know
Dr. Shannon Duqum
Nothing makes Dr. Shannon Duqum happier than a patient telling her they had a great experience after their appointment. She loves surprising people with how comfortable high-quality dentistry can be when it’s done with true care and compassion. She looks forward to welcoming you into our practice, and below, you can start getting to know her ahead of your first appointment.
Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Dr. Duqum comes from a dental family—she is a fourth-generation dentist, and her dad was her dentist growing up. Because of this, she always had a positive relationship with dentistry, so when she finally got to dental school, she was surprised when she learned that most people don’t like going to the dentist! She wanted to give her patients the same type of experiences she had as a child, and today, helping people of all ages enjoy stress-free dental visits is extremely rewarding.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Duqum began her college career at Ohio University, and she went on to earn her dental degree from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. She then completed her residency at Mercy Medical Center in Canton, OH. Always learning, she has received advanced training for Invisalign, SureSmile, Botox, and dental implants.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Duqum and her husband, Brandon, have one daughter, Wren, who constantly keeps them on their toes. She likes to stay very active in her free time, so her hobbies include hiking, skiing, and running (to date, she has completed one marathon and doesn’t plan on ever doing another!).
