Meet Dr. Sunnshine M. Welton
Dr. Sunnshine (Sunny) was born in Mountain Home, Idaho. She received her undergraduate education at UC Berkeley where she graduated with honors and completed her dental training at UCSF where she also graduated at the top of her class.
Dr. Sunnshine performs a wide variety of dental services, but is best known for her gentle touch and her way with children. As a working mother of two small children, she understands the challenges that parents face when trying to provide optimum oral care for a child while facing life’s many challenges. She has a way with both young and older kids that comes from being an experienced parent herself.
For adult patients who are apprehensive or phobic, Dr. Sunny’s small hands and empathetic demeanor make dental care enjoyable.
Sunnshine has also had additional training and experience in pediatrics and orthodontics that allow her to better evaluate children for growth, dental, and behavioral problems than your average general dentist. She has been the children’s dental health advocate for Fergus County Dental Society for the past 7 years working closely with Headstart and the Sealants for Smiles Program. In addition to participating in Give Kids a Smile every year during her career, she also helped implement dental care at the Fort Peck Indian Reservation with the donation of equipment, supplies and time.
She is passionate about ensuring all children receive adequate access to dental care regardless of income, race, or social status.
