Dr. Shilo Annis, Owner

Dr. Shilo Annis, DDS

Dr. Shilo Annis is a Maine native and has forged a non-traditional path to become a dentist. After matriculating Windham High School, Dr. Annis enlisted in the Army where he was stationed for several years in South America. Shilo then went on to become an Apache Helicopter Pilot in the Army for several years. After Shilo left the Army, he then went on to become a federal agent flying for Customs and Border Protection in San Diego.

 

While Shilo will always treasure his time flying, he then turned his attention to serving the people in his home state of Maine. He focused on completing his studies at the University of Southern Maine and then attended the University of New England College of Dental Medicine, graduating in the inaugural class. Dr. Annis is a devoted dentist and wants to maintain general practices in which he can serve the local people and their dental concerns. While not at work, Shilo loves any and all activities that allow him to spend time with his wife and two daughters. “Yes, I enjoy making beautiful smiles. Moreover, I really enjoy helping someone that is anxious at the dentist become more relaxed and providing solutions for their concerns.”
