Dr. Colin Shawhan
Meet Dr. Colin Shawhan! He graduated from OU College of Dentistry in 2014 and purchased our practice in 2016. He loves to create and restore beautiful smiles, and would love the opportunity to help you meet your dental goals.
A photographer, Dr. has studied portraiture, composition and color theory. Being behind the camera and in Lightroom has allowed him to develop a subtle sense of how to make people look their best, fast. It doesn’t always require a ton of dental work! You’ll find photographs around the office taken by Dr. Shawhan on his family vacations, or Wichita Zoo.
A member of Seattle Study Club, Colin is constantly expanding and developing his procedure portfolio. We are in the process of adding implants to the mix! Colin’s philosophy is a group is always smarter than an individual and he encourages input from his team, because a different point of view always has something to offer.

History of Chautauqua Hills Dental
Chautauqua Hills Dental has been providing dental care for patients in the Greater Chautauqua County area since 1997. The practice has existed for much longer under solo ownership, but in a different building on Main Street and using a different name.
Built in the picturesque Chautauqua Hills, a rolling countryside in Southern Kansas, our practice provides a relaxing experience we believe you will find a refreshing alternative to the ordinary.
