Dr. Kent Shirley

I have been seeing Dr. Shirley for over 12 years. He and his staff make going to the dentist very comfortable. Everyone is pleasant and Dr. Shirley gives you dental options for any problem that is encountered. I never wait long and the visit is very efficient. Return appointments are made in right in the exam room. I have recommended Dr. Shirley many times.
