Dental Implant Testimonials

From early childhood I was traumatized by our family dentist, who was as I remember most hurtful and unsympathetic. The treatment that I received then carried over into my adult life. For many years I chose not to have any type of dental care and from the lack of dental care and treatment, I suffered from black and decaying teeth, many of which fell out. Being unable to no longer enjoy food and in my 40s, I decided to seek out dental care. After a few weeks of research, I decided to contact Dr. Sheldon as I thought he could best deal with my dental care and fears. After our first consultation I was impressed by his straight-forward approach and his assurance and treatment and procedure which put me at ease. We discussed many issues. He listened and gave me his opinions regarding treatment. We made a joint decision which treatment plan was best for me and we openly discussed the many different payment plans which were available to me. I will always be thankful to Dr. Sheldon and his caring staff. I will forever be a patient with a beautiful smile forever. Thank you.

“SO very glad to have found Dr. Sheldon. He's caring, involved, fun and an expert in implant surgery. His office is squeaky clean, his staff is all good-natured and informed and his technology is first rate. Many, MANY thanks, Dr. Sheldon!"

– Meredith

“I have been a patient of Dr. Sheldon's for over two years. I started my implant procedure in June 2010 and ever since then I have been extremely satisfied. When I started the procedure I lived in Melbourne, FL but a few months after that I moved to Washington, DC for a new career. Even when living in DC, I still made appointments with, and visited, his office in Melbourne to finish the work.

"I experienced NO pain during or after my implant. I believe that is possibly unique. Dr. Sheldon is terrific, professional, personable, a pleasure to know. His staff is the best ever; the friendliest, courteous, and knowledgeable."

– Connie

"Dr. Sheldon and his staff provided nothing short of outstanding service." I received a front tooth #9 implant. All of my questions were answered and I was made to feel that I was part of their family."

– Greg

"We are able to eat the food that we like and our new smile has brightened the world for us. Now that my wife can chew her food again I am obligated to take her out for a steak dinner more often. My answer to that is this: If what you pay for is good, you forget the price. But if it is bad, you will never forget it."

– Sam and Michelle

"I am no longer in pain and the tooth looks great! Everyone in this office has been terrific, kind, and compassionate. I hope I don't have to have any more implants, but if I do I will be back to this office."

– Lil

"At the beginning of this implant ordeal I was absolutely dreading the procedures. Dr. Sheldon and his staff were such a pleasure... and the sedation makes extractions and implant surgery a breeze. Take it from a real chicken, when you have those beautiful new teeth, you'll wish you had done this sooner."

– Judi

"I am so grateful to Dr. Sheldon and his staff for making this experience one that I could look back on and feel so good about it and know that I received the best of care. I love my implants."

– Mauvelene

"Years ago I had dental implants done. One dentist told me that a tooth he had worked on had a 50/50 chance of success. It lasted 9 years before it failed. Dr. Sheldon gave me a sinus lift and a new implant. Things are "A-OK" now because of this treatment. I am so glad that my friend referred me to Dr. Lee Sheldon."

– Lurana

“Prior to meeting Doc Sheldon, my teeth were a mess. I have medical issues and the medications I take caused my teeth to rapid decay. My dentist tried her best to save my teeth, but the damage was too severe. My dentist sent me to see Doc Sheldon.

“Doc Sheldon is an excellent doctor, he extracted all of my teeth and installed two implants. I had implants installed to hold my bottom teeth in place. I love my implants and I love my new teeth. Everyone that I know has commented on my new look. Doc Sheldon is a very pleasant person, he truly cares about his patients’ wellbeing. He made me feel so comfortable with every step I went through. I just graduated from his care. Upon graduation, he gave me a t-shirt and his newly released book titled "The Ultimate Mouth Manual."

“I highly recommend Doc Sheldon to anyone and everyone. He is the best. The staff is awesome, so polite and helpful, always willing to answer any questions. To the doc and his staff, thank you all very much for everything.”

“Dr. Sheldon has greatly improved a problem I had been experiencing with my front tooth. 20 years ago I was in a boating accident that fractured my front tooth. 18 years later I had an unsuccessful root canal and two years of pain later I saw Dr. Sheldon's commercial on TV about implants!

“I scheduled my consultation and while the thought of losing my front tooth was scary and getting an implant pretty scary too, I did it. Well I am no longer in pain the tooth (implant) looks great!! Everyone in this office has been terrific, kind, and compassionate. I hope I don't have to have any more implants, but if I do I will be back to this office.”

“Dr. Lee Sheldon is one of the most knowledgeable and gentle dentists I have encountered. He truly cares about his patients comfort level during each procedure. His chair-side manner is unheard of! I needed gum and bone grafting on my lower jaw due to having "thin bone". It was major surgery.

“I don't normally write reviews, but this Periodontist deserves his due. I went to Dr. Sheldon with an infection that had created havoc in my upper front teeth. Dr. Sheldon was able eliminate the infection and then surgically graft bone tissue in that area so that my dentist was able to create a natural looking bridge.

“My entire experience with Dr. Lee Sheldon was off the charts! For a number of years I had ignored a growing problem with receding gums and exposed roots because quite frankly, after reading all the literature I could get my hands on, I was afraid of subjecting my mouth to this procedure. Finally, I decided to seek out a periodontist experienced in soft tissue grafting. One name consistently emerged as the “gum guru” - Dr. Lee Sheldon.

“From the moment I signed on for this procedure, I felt totally at ease. I was thoroughly educated in all the steps involved prior to the procedure and breezed through the surgery with little discomfort and thanks to hands-on follow up, my recovery was remarkably quick. Ten years later I have no recession and apart from the improved aesthetics my gum health has never been better. I no longer live in Melbourne but continue to refer friends and family members from around the country to Dr. Sheldon.”
