Dr. Shilo Annis
Dr. Shilo Annis was born and raised in Maine. Shilo has had an unusual path to become a dentist. After graduating Windham High School, Shilo enlisted in the Army and spent a few years in South America. He then became an Apache Helicopter Pilot in the Army for several years. After leaving the Army he went on to become a federal agent flying for Customs and Border Protection in San Diego. While Shilo enjoyed his time flying, he wanted something that provided a service to people in his home state. Eventually, he made his way through the University of Southern Maine then to the University of New England College of Dental Medicine graduating in the inaugural class.
Shilo has many interests in dentistry and wants to maintain a general practice in which he can serve the majority of people and their concerns. Shilo enjoys 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.”
“There is a great deal of trust a person has for their dentist. I want to earn and keep that trust by providing the best treatment possible for them in a relaxing environment.”
