Dr. Rouse went on to study at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, where he was awarded the Academy of General Dentistry Senior Student Dental Award.

Dr. Shah and his staff are AWESOME people. I recently had to get a few cavities filled and mentally I don't do well with the process. However, Dr. Shah was a very caring individual that helped me through this process. He and Mandy (who filled the cavities) were polite and very pleasant individuals to be around. I can't stress enough how they made my experience so easy due to their positive personalities and excellent work ethics. Newark Smiles is my new home for my teeth and I'm very thankful I found them! Newark Smiles is what you'd expect a dentist place to be - kind, compassionate, energetic, happy, & driven! They exceeded every one of those! Glad I found them!
