Our commitment to providing the best care available…is our promise to you.

Dr. Shea prides himself in being able to find workable solutions to even the most complex of dental problems. He spends hundreds of hours every year keeping on top of the latest in restorative and cosmetic procedures — through journals, professional meetings and dental study groups.

Over the years he’s learned that just because something is new it is not always better. That’s why he studies new trends in care so he can understand what will work in the long run and what is just a passing fad. It’s all part of his commitment to you.
