Dental patient Sara

“Dr. Shelton is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had! Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, she takes the time to get to know her patients and explains her knowledge in a way that non-dentists can understand! She truly cares about her patients and is always exploring the latest technology in dental care. Her staff and hygienists are very friendly as well. I’ll be sad to leave when we move!”

“I recently became a new patient at Polished Dentistry and had a great experience! Dr. Shelton is very thorough and addresses all current problems as well as any potential issues you could face in the future. I’m from a small town, but it felt as if I was back home when I went in for my appointments. Thank you all for the work you do! :)”
