Dr. Shanahan’ work is top notch and his manner is very kind and considerate. I think Stephanie was the dental assistant’s name and she was fantastic. She kept me apprised of what was happening and why, she was skilled, gentle, and stayed focused. The staff help create an atmosphere in the office that is very pleasant.

I took my elderly mother to Maple Shade EP for her 1st visit this past week. Dr Shanahan tightened the wires that hold her partial in place, gave his recommendations, and had her fixed up in no time. She is very pleased with the results. My husband and I have been going to Dr. S. I think since the practice opened on Illini Drive. We’ve always been perfectly satisfied. Thank you!

Very kind and very professional service. Just recently had my first visit and they were kind enough to give me a coupon that dropped my x-ray/inspection down to only $29.99. As someone that currently doesn’t have dental insurance this was a huge relief! Huge thank you to the staff at Maple Shade Dental of East Peoria

Always fast in and out. Dental hygenists are very friendly. Dentists are also very friendly and talk you through any questions. Afterwards, all billing is a breeze as the front desk takes care of it and is always willing to take the time to answer any questions.

Dr. Ruffner was recommended to me by my son. As a new patient, the office was able to give me an appointment within a month’s time, and sent two reminders via phone and through text in order that I did not forget my appointment. From the point of walking into their facility, I was greeted very kindly by Tonya, assisted by Richard who guided me through all x-rays and procedures, treated by Karen who was very gentle in testing, and then met with Dr. Ruffner who examined and very professionally told me step-by-step what he recommended for my dental care. Richard related back to Tonya throughout to make sure what my insurance would cover, and when checking out all follow-ups were in place. I could not have asked for an entire staff to have been any more personable or professional, and I left with a very positive feeling that my son had made a wonderful recommendation. Thank you to Dr. Ruffner and his staff for being so kind.

My family loves Maple Shade Dental! Dr Shanahan is an Amazing dentist!!

Endodontist Peoria Specialties: Understanding your Treatment
Endodontic treatment is a type of affordable dental care that eliminates pain and infection when a tooth is diseased. Beneath the layers of white enamel and underlying dentin, each tooth has a soft center called the pulp. The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels, and tissues that helped to nourish the tooth while it was developing. Once a tooth becomes mature, the pulp is no longer essential and can be removed if it becomes diseased through infection or tooth decay. The […]
