Although he has enjoyed all phases of family dentistry, Doctor Shuman has found that full mouth reconstruction cases have been the most exciting and satisfying in his career.

You’re the Boss

Honest, Non-Pushy Dentistry

Our job is to show you what we see in your mouth, educate you on your options, and let you make the best decision for yourself. We never push unnecessary treatments and always give you options.

Give us a Call!

The first step to better oral health is giving us a call to book an appointment.

Initial Visit

During your first visit we will take some X-Rays and give you a tour of your mouth with our intra oral cameras. Then, we’ll learn about your oral health goals and give you any applicable treatment options.

Next Visit

Once you know what is going on inside of your mouth, you make the treatment decisions that are best for you. We will never be pushy or recommend treatment that you don’t need.
