My local dentist retired and I was looking for a new one. I had heard a lot of good things about Dr Brian Sheppard and decided to give his office a call.
I called Dr. Brian Sheppard's office and set up an appointment for an exam. 
Dr. Sheppard was extremely thorough and explained much more then I had experienced before.
I had a chipped tooth and needed a crown, didn't really know that I was royalty (bad joke).
Dr. Sheppard preformed the procedure in just one sitting (about 2 hours). 
They have a CRC machine that makes the crown in their office. The entire procedure went flawlessly. Dr. Sheppard even showed me the crown being made. VERY IMPRESSIVE.

Dr. Sheppard is talented and hilarious! The color and marble texture on my veneer and on my chip are perfect. My bite is better so my mouth is relaxed. Everyone at the office is really nice. Dr. Sheppard gets it done fast, and has me laughing every time.

I can truly say I enjoy going to Sheppard Family Dentistry. Your experience starts by being warmly greeted by the staff.

Dr. Sheppard is so gently and it is a pain free dental experience. They have nice music playing .You can watch a wonderful slide show of ocean, flowers, and landscape  scenes while being treated.

I look forward to my visits and keeping my teeth maintained..
