Dr. Tisdale has been my dentist for years and I wouldn't go to any other dentist. He knows I can't stand pain and does everything he can to cause no pain. Just had an appointment this week. NO PAIN AT ALL. Also, everyone in the office is friendly and patient.

I had my teeth cleaned yesterday by Jennifer Turnquist and she did an amazing job. She made me feel very comfortable, explained what she was going to do, and got me out on time as I was 15 min late. Most importantly, NO PAIN! I really appreciate her knowledge of dentistry and passion for what she does. Thank you and I will be back and refer Jennifer to some of my friends and co-workers.

Excellent dental office. I have been a patient for 20 years. Dr. Tisdale and Dr. Hull are the best. Very easy to get an appointment when there is an unexpected problem with my teeth. Convenient office hours around work schedules. All the staff are very friendly and helpful.

I cannot say enough about the Excellence in care that Shores Dental Center,P.C. provides. The girls at the front reception area are friendly, caring, and knowledgeable. They always know who I am and make a point to ask me how everything is. They even remembered my daughters soccer tournament, from the last time I was in. Dr. Hull and Dr. Tisdale provide top notch dental care. The office takes digital x-rays, which is a bonus in my book. The hygienists are absolutely wonderful! I would and have recommended this office a million times over. If you are looking for a dentist that is up to date with technology and has great chair side manners, Shores Dental Center is for you!
