I love the people. They make you feel at home. They work with you. Understanding, helpful. They go out of their way for you as a patient. Amazing service.

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! :)

My hygienist, Jen, is why I continue to come back. She knows me and my family and all about the type of care my teeth need. She makes it feel like going to see a friend rather than a random dental cleaning. Also love the receptionist. She greets me with my first name and I feel very welcome coming in the door. Great staff.

I am very happy with all aspects of my visits there…..from the first person I speak to when I arrive to the last one I am in contact with when I leave….except for the fact that I have to pay this person – ;) Between those times, I also feel that Dr. Shanahan “knows his stuff” and is in complete control with whatever work I need done on my teeth! Oh…I also really like Dr. Shanahan’s chairside assistant. She seems to know what Dr. needs without him having to even ask her for it!!!!! :)

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 […]
