Dr Shelton and her staff are very professional and made me feel at ease. I needed two crowns: she made them in the office in about 30 minutes. This negated having to have temporary crowns installed and returning later for finalcrowns: fabulous. On my previous visit, Amber (the hygienist) also took digital photos of my teeth (in addition to the usual X-rays). This is an amazing tool as you (the patient) can see the exact status of each tooth. Amber did a very thorough cleaning. And thank you Charlotte for your support during the procedure and also showing me the machine that makes the crowns actually in operation.

It's a pleasure to go to a dentist that both her and her staff are caring & always have smiles. Megan is very easy going and friendly, actually gets to know you and cares about you. She doesn't do unnecessary workon you or before you need it. Very thorough. Highly recommend Polish Dentistry!
