Christi Weaver Shepard, DDS, PA

Dr. Shepard strives to serve the community by providing high-quality oral health care in a warm and friendly environment.

Recognizing the importance of oral and overall health, Dr. Shepard started this practice in 1997 to help meet this need. Her love for getting to know her patients allows her to partner effectively with them to maintain and improve their oral health.

Dr. Shepard is married to her husband Mike. Together they are proud to be the parents of their three children, Rhett, Riley, and Reese.

When not seeing patients, she is likely cheering on her girls at their basketball games. Off the court, she enjoys cooking, walking, traveling, Zumba, and of course, watching Razorback football and baseball.

Dr. Shepard participates in supporting her community in various ways including serving on the CAC Development Council, teaching Sunday school to young children at Pleasant Valley Church of Christ, and being a member of Women for Harding.

After receiving a BS in biology from the University of Central Arkansas, Dr. Shepard went on to complete her DDS from Baylor College of Dentistry. To this day, continued dental education remains a central value for Dr. Shepard and her staff, which is why she is a committed member of the Arkansas State Dental Association, American Dental Association, and Central Dental Society.
