Verified Patient Reviews
I had a very professional and enjoyable experience (If one can say that at a dental office) that was pain free and in a relaxing environment. Dr. Shelton is an excellent dentist that I would highly recommend to friends and family.
Actually moved my dental care from the previous office that Doctor Shelton worked at so that I could continue my care with her. She is meticulous about the work she does and explains what the treatment plan is extremely well. I've always been taken back to my appointment almost immediately after walking in. Never had to wait. Followup on procedures shows she really cares. Always hated to go to the dentist but now I don't dread it.
My visit was so informative. Dr. Shelton is very gentle and so kind!! I felt like I was in the company of a friend. She recently took over for my old dentist and I feel like I've been left in great hands.
