New Patient Experience

We work with a wide variety of patients, from children as young as two to seniors. During your first appointment, we address your individual concerns before proceeding with a full examination with x-rays. We let the patient dictate their care.

Dr. Shelton and his team get to know each patient as an individual while working toward a solution to any outstanding issues, keeping in mind their unique concerns. Whether you need a standard consultation or would like to address complex issues like tooth loss, we have the necessary experience and equipment to leave you with a healthy and beautiful smile. 

Services available from our team include but are not limited to:

Our cosmetic solutions include teeth whitening, composite bonding, and porcelain veneers, among others. These treatments can address imperfections that may distract from the natural beauty of your smile, such as extrinsic stains and misshapen teeth. For younger patients, we offer sealants and, in extensive cases, nitrous oxide which will help them relax during appointments.

Office Amenities and Accepted Payment Types

Our office features free Wi-Fi and a television in every room, including the lobby and our operatories. In the waiting room we have a table for children, and make our patients’ comfort a priority throughout their visit, whether they’re relaxing in our lobby or being treated by our friendly team. 

We accept most insurance, cash, and all credit cards, and can provide financing through CareCredit.
