She has always had ties to the city of New Orleans and solidified that relationship when she moved there to attend Xavier University of Louisiana. She graduated with a degree in biology and attended Howard University in Washington, DC to obtain her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. After meeting and marrying Dr. Shelton she returned to New Orleans and worked in private practice until she and Dr. Shelton opened Tulane Family Dentistry. Dr. Russell enjoys pediatric dentistry and has furthered her knowledge in behavioral management, conscious sedation, aesthetic pediatric dentistry and trauma management of the pediatric population. She understands a child’s hesitation with the dentist and works to allay each child’s anxieties to make every visit a positive experience.
