Patient Reviews

“I have been a patient since 1985 while my spouse originally chose to go elsewhere (closer to home) for herself and our young children. My wife became unsatisfied with her dentist is now a patient of Dr. Shortell. My children who are now adults have also had unsatisfactory experiences elsewhere so they have decided to be patients of Dr. Shortell. The quality of service is exemplary plus the staff has always consisted of only the best. 30 plus years of nothing but satisfaction where he has rebuilt a jaw for one of my daughters plus many other specialty services including urgent after hours treatment. We feel blessed to have bean able to find Dr. Shortell.”

“Dr. Shortell is a true professional that takes a conservative approach to dentistry. No matter the dental work required, Dr. Shortell always takes the time to fully explain what to expect and ensures the comfort of the patient during the procedure. My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Shortell for over twenty-five years. During this time we have needed dental services including routine cleaning, check-ups fillings to more complex root canals’, crowns and implants. My crowns and implant fit perfectly. If you want to feel like a valued patient and receive the services of an excellent dentist this is the place to go!”

“Growing up, I had some terrible experiences with dentists. When it comes to my teeth, I am skittish and a ball of anxiety. But there is a reason I now go to Dr. Shortell's dental office. I trust Dr. Tom and his staff. He knows teeth and he knows me. He does what needs to be done and he does his best to make sure I am comfortable through it all. His staff is awesome as well. Lacy is always there to greet you with a smile. Jennifer is a great hygienist. She's very encouraging but not afraid to dole out the "homework" if needed. The entire staff excels in making it as comfortable as possible when you walk through the doors. I appreciate the way they have taken care of me and my family over the years!”

“I've been going to Dr. Shortell for about 10 years. Great dentist with a great staff. I have had two dental implants done and never needed a painkiller. Zero pain during recovery. I don't think you can get any better than that.”
