I've been going here for years and never had a bad experience. The staff is always friendly and the prices are more reasonable than most other dentists in the area. If you are searching for a great and affordable dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Shearer.

Didn't clean my teeth or do their job properly. Tried to work things out and they refused. Will never recommend such terrible service. Very unprofessional staff.

Warning get an invoice on the work they do. I was a new patient that asked for a cleaning and got billed $380 dollars to my insurance company. I never received an invoice when I left the office. Rip off don't do business with this company.

Took my son to this dentist. Worst mistake ever. The Dr. has no idea on how to work with kids. NO PATIENCE at all. Not to mention the waiting. I will never take my son again. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!

I went in for a check up and was told I needed 5 fillings and a root canal. After the Novocaine injection for the filling, I have almost no mobility of my jaw. Opening it to brush my teeth is almost impossible and brings me to tears. Its been THREE WEEKS since the filling. I have to eat an all-liquid diet and some days it is COMPLETELY shut, making it impossible to go to work. Stay FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE! the dentist said she's never seen someone with trouble opening their jaw after an injection and won't give me anything for pain. I was told to just go somewhere else and they MIGHT be able to fix it. The secretaries talk to each other while you're standing there waiting to check in and are very rude. I wish I'd never gone here. For now I guess I'll just drink apple sauce through a straw. 0/5 this place should be shut down.

STAY AWAY, FAR AWAY!!!!! Suffered all weekend with dental pain from work which I had just got done the day before. After the work on fri. I asked the dentist for a script for pain because I had a deep cavity filled and I knew it would be very sore over the weekend. She said no. Well here comes sat., lots of pain. Nobody there on sat. would give me a prescription for my pain. Left several messges sat. morning, nobody ever called me back. Finally I got through after being put on hold numerous times and was told the lady dentist who saw me on fri. was not in and nobody there could call in a script. PLEASE, PLEASE, STAY AWAY!! NEVER EVER GOING BACK AGAIN.

I sat for over an hour just to be told not ONE dentist felt comfortable doing an extraction on my tooth. When I was JUST at another general dental Office that said its no problem taking the tooth out, but I didn't go with then because they didn't take my insurance. So I came to dental dream and not one dentist there could do it?! Where do they find these dentists right out of school?!

3 hours of wait time, saying I have 10 cavities, when I had none due to a second opinion. a very unclean environment. I saw complaints online about this corporation, they only care about volume, they perform unnecessary procedures and then say you need a root canal, push Care Credit off on you. The only thing they care about is money. They have no idea how to treat patients. All of the dentists have thick foreign accents. I witnessed first hand how they hold down a child when doing procedures. Imagine a 3 year old needing a root canal ! What the heck is wrong with these people. Close them up !

After waiting for an hour, I was informed that the dentist would not clean my teeth or exam me because I refused x-Rays because of a family history on cancer. Will never be back!

Waited over an hour and a half for the dentist and then she explained conditions by saying "and stuff". The dentist must clean and it takes forever to see her.
Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
