from the office staff at front desk to the chair and appointment this office is highly recommended in my books, I have recommended many patients to this DDS. My entire family goes to see Dr Todd. We love his soothing voice and his clean office. The check up is very detailed and comfortable. When I went to have a cavity filled they took my blood pressure for me (possible saved my life) I was 141/119 made an appt with my family doc and now my blood pressure is normal and I no longer have headaches.Thank you team Shockley.. Special shout to Denise at the front desk you are wonderful.
I have been going to Dr. Shockley for 15+ years. He is the greatest. Calm, never in a hurry and explains everything. Is always asking about how you are feeling. I would recommend him to everyone. Once I had a problem with a molar which might give me trouble over a weekend. He gave me his personal number before I left with instructions to call if I had a tringe of pain. Also, the hygenists have been with him for years and have the same quality care.
I am so glad i decided to listen to the reviews. I am terribly afraid of going to the dentist! Well, all of my fears went away when I came to this office. They treated me with such patience and the dentist was very nice and I didn't feel any pain at all when i was getting my teeth worked on. Thank you!!!
I, too, have had many bad experiences in the dental chair. Must have nitrous to clean my teeth. Dr. Shockley completely understands and takes extra care to be understaning and gentle. His competence is second to none. Ive been his patient for the last 2 years and not once have I felt any pain or had to return for job not done right. I'm going again today for extensive work and not afraid!
I have seen Dr. Shockley a few times (less than I should of course). He has taken care of my parents and I for about 15 years. I have SEVERE problems with going to the dentist. I have panic attacks and pass out/nearly pass out just walking into the office. Yes, I had many bad experiences as a child.
About 2 years ago I had to have all of my old metal fillings removed and replaced. I also had 2 new fillings done as well. We're talking 13 fillings. Now, most of these were from my childhood and were done as a preventative. My teeth had such deep pits it was inevitable for me to get cavities. They worked, but as we know, fillings don't last forever. He showed deep concern for my needs in terms of dental and emotional needs. He did not treat me as ""just another person afraid of dentists"".
We made the appointment and he prescribed Halcyon for me to take the night before and that morning. Previous attempts with other Dr.'s showed now relief from Valium or Xanax. He even called the me the day before (personally) to make sure I had my medication and understood how to take it and what to expect. This made me feel great!
I went in and was afraid, but managed to keep my calm long enough to get to the room. He gave me nitrous and waited and talked with me. I had headphones and was made sure to be comfortable and ready before we began. There was no rush. It was hard to go through in the beginning because I could feel the fear, but it didn't affect me the way it normally would. He continued to talk to me while waiting for the novacaine to take effect (instead of leaving the room). There was even a point where I was joking and laughing with him. The great part though was that I didn't feel loopy or drugged, nor did I feel pain. I liked not being ""out of it"" and still feeling in control.
When he finished I realized I made it through and it was no big deal. It's changed my complete out look on going to the dentist. I no longer have that fear.
By far, Todd Shockley is the best dentist I've ever been to. Both he and his staff are extremely friendly and caring. He is as pain free as you can get in a dentist! I would highly recommend him to anyone, especially those of us who are terrified of the dentist. I no longer fear a trip to see the dentist anymore.
if this is how he treats his patient and takes care of them, i wont mind eating chocolates every day. Todd is extremely great. I did not even feel a needle pring. By the time i got myslef comfortable, he was done with the work. Great staff. I would say to everyone, if you have a tooth problem, this is the place u need to go to. Besides just being professional, the staff is so great. they treat u like family. Man, this is it. Just the right place
I would definitely recommend this dentist. There office staff and dentist are very polite and down to earth. The overall procedures done from fillings to root canals are very gentle and the dentist is concerned about your needs.
