Your new smile starts with a Comprehensive Treatment Plan.

Dr. Shea begins with the end in mind. He carefully listens to you to understand your goals, hopes and dreams. He answers your questions, clearly and honestly. Next, he researches and evaluates the potential ways to “create and build” your dental solution.

Then he presents his plan to you; explains his diagnosis, procedures, benefits, costs and timetable. And unlike general dentists, he sees complex dental cases regu­larly and has successfully performed them for years.

Your dental solution is one-of-a-kind — exclusively yours.

Your mouth and teeth are unique, so Dr. Shea’s customized solution is essential to achieving your goals. The result can change your life – provide you with new confidence, a more enjoyable eating experience, and a light-up-the-room smile.
