  • Dr. Shannon Russell, DDS

    "Hello.  It is my pleasure and privilege to provide healthcare to our community and beyond.  Growing up in neighboring Tuolumne County along with Calaveras County’s offering of snow sports, water sports, camping, fishing, and golf made my decision to open a dental office in Calaveras County easy.  I have provided some information below for those who are interested in knowing more about my education and healthcare experience.  Thanks for choosing 1stImpressions Dentistry as your home for prevention and remember to let your smile say it all!"
