If at any time we can be of further assistance while arranging your cosmetic transformation visits to the Pittsburgh area, please do not hesitate to contact our office directly. Our Team is happy to assist in coordinating plans for dining, daytime activities, and shopping so you return from your trip smiling and relaxed!

Dr. Shieh and her team understand that it’s not always easy to visit our office for an in-person consultation especially for out-of-town patients. That’s why we offer our patients two virtual consultation options. Many of our domestic and international patients have taken advantage of this service.
Virtual consultation is time saving whether you are out of state (Pennsylvania) or out of the country. For your convenience, we use the most familiar and popular internet communication applications when doing a virtual consultation. Your smile transformation and facial esthetic virtual consultation can be conducted via:
ZOOM video conferencing
FaceTime (iPhone or iPad users)
Getting Started with Your Virtual Consultation
STEP ONE - register as a new patient by completing our new patient online forms HERE
STEP TWO - Once we've received your new patient registration, one of our Smile Team members will reach out to you within 24 hours to provide further instructions and to get you scheduled at a date and time that is convenient for you. Our virtual consultation can range from 30 - 60 minutes to address your goals and concerns.
STEP THREE - Email us any xrays and/or photos that you like Dr. Shieh to evaluate and to discuss during your virtual meeting.
All medical information and pictures that you provide are treated with respect and confidentiality. Everyone on our team undergoes periodic training so that we understand and are compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This includes all related government rules and regulations, especially those regarding the “Privacy Rules.”
Your virtual consultation should not be taken as your final and accurate treatment plan proposal as your oral conditions may have changed when we finally meet you in person.
IMPORTANT: your virtual consultation will/can not substitute in place your actual in-person consultation when you decided to choose Dr. Shieh as your provider. When you decide to choose Dr. Shieh as your smile provider, an in-person formal consultation meeting will be required.
