Starting them off early will lead to a lifetime of prevention!

Shailee Mashruwala, D.D.S.

Pediatric dentist Dr. Shailee MashruwalaProviding a compassionate, friendly, and fun environment for children is such a privilege. It is also one of the main reasons I decided to become a pediatric dentist. I feel grateful to have the opportunity to build a trusting relationship with the families in our community. And nothing makes me happier than to see the children leave after their visit with a big smile on their face! It is very rewarding to help create a positive and lasting impact on a child’s lifelong oral health. I look forward to meeting you and being of service.

Outside the Office

I am a native of Chicago, Illinois. I have found Northern California to be a beautiful place and am very happy to call Sonoma County my new home. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, yoga, gardening, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.

Our Approach

We believe that good oral health is necessary in the overall health and vitality of every child, and that the profession of early childhood caries can be prevented.

The mouth which houses our teeth, tongue, and salivary glands is the gateway to all the essential needs of our body: food, water and air. It is an integral part for determining the health of our entire bodies. We use an integrated approach with all of our young patients, offering options that, in our best judgment, will address and positively impact each child as a whole. It is important to address a cavity, and it is just as important to evaluate and try to remedy why such a cavity was formed. Although often proper treatment may necessitate restoring a tooth, in some cases consciously and actively choosing to monitor and later re-evaluating the situation is a valid treatment option, using minimally invasive dentistry techniques such as tooth remineralization and ozone applications.

We are always striving to meet new families in our communities and encourage them to establish a dental home as soon as possible, before the age of one or when their child’s first tooth comes in. And we stress the importance of ongoing continuing care to establish a routine at home and with the dentist, checking regularly for ongoing prevention, caries risk assessments, and gaining knowledge about their child’s future growth and development.

Our goal is to gain trust and create a confidence in children and their parents so that they will look forward to visiting the dentist and being diligent about maintaining healthy habits and oral care at home.


Meet the Team

Donna - RDADonna


I have been with Dr. Oliver since 1998 and have had a great time working with children. “Kids DO say the darndest things!” I try to keep everyone’s experience positive and happy. Our goal as a team and individually is to banish dental fear and anxiety for life! I live in Sonoma County and am frequently recognized by our patients—it’s a good feeling when they run up with an enthusiastic HI! I enjoy my job, the people I work with, and the opportunity to help children.

Jessica - RDAJessica


I love and enjoy working with kids and making them feel at ease. Being able to turn a new (scary?) experience of the dental world into a fun, magical place is what I enjoy most of all. I have a young son of my own and can relate to concerns parents may have. My goal is to have every child have a positive, happy experience in our office and want to come back for another great visit!

Shelen - RDAShelen


I love to see kids have a positive experience in our dental office! For nearly 25 years I have been able to see this happen as a registered dental assistant. What a privilege it is for me to serve families in our community. My time at work is really special “family” time because I am able to work side-by-side with my brother, Dr. Oliver! My husband and I have two wonderful children.

Paula - Office AdministrationPaula

A comfortable environment, working with positive people, and seeing positive outcomes are a few reasons why my job is so rewarding here at Dr. Oliver’s. Every day is a new opportunity to greet our families, work with their insurance coverage and personal finances, and make sure that their children receive the care and treatment they need and deserve. Our doctors and their assistants are simply the best, and it is inspiring to watch our children gain the confidence and skills necessary for a lifetime of beautiful smiles! I am a very lucky mother and grandmother of two grown sons and two beautiful grandchildren. Hiking, beachcombing, gardening and traveling are a few of my favorite pastimes.

Karen - Treatment CoordinatorKaren

Treatment/Scheduling Coordinator

I have been enjoying pediatric dentistry for more than 25 years. I am a registered dental assistant, although you are likely to receive a friendly greeting from me upon your first phone call or visit to our office. It is such a pleasure meeting the families of our community and watching the children grow up in our dental home. I always do my best to keep a smooth running schedule and respect the time and effort our families take to be here. I love working with parents and patients to help them understand the treatment recommendations and receive the care they deserve. I hope that all our families feel that they are among friends in our practice.

Gigi - Office AdministrationGigi

Scheduling/Office Administration

I began working in the dental field in 2009 and joined Dr. Oliver’s team in early 2014. This is my first experience with a pediatric office and I really enjoy working with children of all ages, along with their families! Learning how to manage our office scheduling and insurance is always a fun challenge, and I look forward to working every day with Dr. Oliver’s great team. It is always rewarding to help make dental visits a fun event that our kids can enjoy coming to and where they can bring their family and friends along with them! Away from the office, I enjoy exploring and adventuring with my son in our beautiful Sonoma County and neighboring regions.

I am the newest member of the Dr. Oliver/Dr. Shailee team and I am so pleased to be a part of this fun practice! I have been bringing my kids to this office for the last 16 years and could not be happier to be working with such a stellar group of people. Making children feel comfortable and providing great service is high on my list of priorities. Although I am new to the field of dentistry, I have 25 years of experience in Early Childhood Education. I love seeing so many friendly faces both in the office and around town. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, traveling, reading great books, and spending lots of time with my friends and family. My husband and I have been married for 22 years and we've raised two beautiful children together. I look forward to seeing you when you come in!


Our office has been serving families in Sonoma County, Mendocino County and Lake County for over 30 years. Rob Oliver, a native of Sonoma County, began his pediatric dental career in 1998 in Sebastopol, California when his father, also a pediatric dentist, retired and turned over his rural practice to his son. As Dr. Oliver’s reputation grew, so did the practice and the need for more space. In early 2006, he opened a second office in Windsor.

Community Outreach

As a gift to our communities, Dr. Oliver has prepared an educational dental prevention program for our preschools and elementary classrooms. Our Registered Dental Assistants lead an entertaining presentation that focuses on the importance of a healthy and beautiful smile. Fun props and storyboards are used to motivate daily brushing and flossing habits, and healthy food choices are discussed. We also invite classrooms to plan a field trip to our Windsor or Sebastopol office where they can explore and learn about dental care in our fun dental office environment.
