The staff, including Dr. Shanahan, were wonderful to work with. They always greet me with a warm smile and are willing to go that extra mile to make sure my experience is a positive one.

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.

Doctor Ruffner is amazing! He really cares about his patients and about the work he does. He knows I have terrible anxiety but he still wipes the tears away when I’m having a hard time. I can’t thank him enough for all he’s done for me and my family. I really appreciate his dental hygentists too, his son is following in his footsteps. The young lady (can’t think of her name) that is working with him now is really friendly. I think the young man’s name is Brandon? He was really nice too. Kristine and the font desk staff are awesome too. We’re on a first name basis, lol And finally, Karen … Karen, you are just the epitome of awesomeness. I appreciate you because you take the time to know me and it reflects how much you care about your patients and work. You tell it like it is and that’s how it should be. Thank you, everyone! :)

Sherry D.
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!

Before you try to get pregnant, see an affordable dentist for a thorough exam and teeth cleaning. If your dentist finds any oral health problems, they can be resolved before you get pregnant. The appointment also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about dental care and pregnancy.

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 […]
