    Dr. Jay Shukla


    North Carolina

    “Dr. Jay” Shukla is an experienced general dentist committed to helping patients, improving oral care, and contributing to the Charlotte/Matthews community and beyond. As a dentist, Dr. Jay is passionate about treating and educating his patients so that they are comfortable and confident with their treatment.

    Along with educating his patients, Dr. Jay is passionate about furthering his dental education. He is always looking to learn new techniques, work with new technology and improve the patient experience. His goal is to develop a partnership with his patients, where they work together to improve and maintain their oral health.

    Outside of patients and the office, Dr. Jay loves checking out the Charlotte food scene, grilling out in the summer, and spending time with his family. He also is a loyal NY Giants fan and is also learning to love the South’s sports scene (slowly converting him into a UNC and South Carolina fan as well).
