Dr. Shawn O'Bannon

Shawn P. O’Bannon, DMD, is one of our orthodontists at GO Orthodontics in Oxford, Saltillo, Southaven, and Corinth, MS, and Collierville, TN!

From Dr. O’Bannon…

“The benefits I experienced following orthodontic treatment as a youngster have gone far beyond just straighter teeth. I now have the same opportunity to see those changes in the patients I care for … every day. My own positive experience as a child led me to pursue a career in dentistry and orthodontics.

As an orthodontist, I am entrusted with building smiles and making lasting impressions. I am so very blessed to love what I do and do what I love. Creating beautiful smiles makes a real and lasting difference in a patient’s self-esteem. It builds self-confidence. It changes the way we behave in the face of endless changes life throws at us.

Whether our team and I are working with the young, or those who are young in spirit, our goal is always to develop the smile of their dreams. We get to build meaningful long-term relationships with patients. When we see them in our community, leading their lives with their loved ones, we get to see them happy and smiling with confidence!

Coming into contact with so many unique people has increased my understanding of what relationships mean. It is a blessing that I never take for granted. I cannot wait to meet you and your family and help you achieve the smile that will transform the rest of your life.”
