Dr. Shortell is the best. He is fun and really relaxes the children. He is to be trusted with the best care and opinions. He takes care of the patient needs without always "up selling." His concern is of the health of your teeth and how "comfortable" you are - if there is such a thing in the dentist's chair. His staff is knowledgeable and conscientious. You do not have to wait for your appointment time - he runs prompt!!!
