In the many years of dental appointments I have had, ranging from general cleanings to fillings, root canals and crowns, I have never experienced such a pleasant, virtually pain free visit, as my last few with Dr. Shaw. He is the most compassionate, patient focused dentist I have ever been under the care of. I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone seeking a gentle and kind dentist! I strongly suggest anyone who deals with phobias and/or fears of getting in the dental chair, to give him a try. Once is all it will take, and you will return, over and over again. He is also a perfectionist when it comes to his work, which makes him even better!
