Meet Shane L. New, DDS
Dr. Shane is a Hoosier native and is proud to have served in the United States Marine Corps after high school. He earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology and worked for several years as a mechanical engineer. He then went on to earn a Masters degree in Biology and recently completed his dental degree at the Indiana University School of Dentistry.
While in dental school, Shane was active in several dental volunteer organizations. Dr. Shane and Dr. Tricia took a service trip to Haiti to serve rural communities without access to dental care. He was a board member and volunteer of the Student Outreach Clinic, a student-run free dental clinic for patients in financial need. As a military veteran, he was excited to lead a program that helped unemployed and homeless veterans receive free dental care. This program partnered with other organizations to help the veterans find employment. After graduation, Shane was recognized for these efforts and awarded the International College of Dentists Humanitarian Award and a Johnson Public Health DDS Scholarship Award.
Dr. Shane also practices dentistry at his father-in-law’s practice in Spencer, IN. When not working, Shane enjoys scuba diving, mountain biking and spending time with friends and family.
