Patient Testimonials

testimonial rorie"I have just completed my third implant with Dr Matt Sheldon and Dr Michel Furtado. The third implant was to replace a bridge and after having done two implants earlier there was no question in my mind to replace my bridge with an implant. I can’t say enough about the friendly staff and how comfortable they make you feel. The whole procedure is painless and I would never consider anything else but an implant should the need arise in the future, nor would I consider going anywhere else but to Dr Matt and Dr Furtado. I trust them to have my best interest in mind."

– Rorie

"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."

“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

After wearing a partial with three teeth on it since junior high, it was time to part with it. Finding Drs. Sheldon and Furtado was just the ticket. Fear at the first appointment quickly turned into feeling calm and confident at each meeting. Their relaxed, friendly attitudes and “can do” problem-solving teamwork has made a world of difference in my smile and dining experience! Thank you!!!

– Jennifer

– 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.

– 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 and his staff are the best. I needed implants to replace four missing teeth. I used Dr. Sheldon. I made the right choice. My implants are great. Dr. Sheldon calls to check up on how you are doing after the procedure. He is the first dentist that ever sent me flowers to cheer me up! Dr. Sheldon has a large staff that is all helpful and very friendly. Dr. Sheldon also cured my periodontal disease. His hygienists are top notch. If you need implants or periodontal work you can't do better than Dr. Sheldon.”

“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.

– A Google User Review, Overall Excellent Rating

“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.”

Peer Testimonials

david che"Dr. Lee Sheldon is one of the most talented periodontists I’ve ever observed. I have done numerous implant cases with him and his implant placement techniques are second to none. His vast experience allows him to make the best clinical decisions regarding treatment.

"He is always up to date on the latest trends and materials. He also uses high tech in office scanning equipment to confirm the implants are placed in the correct position, something I rarely see elsewhere. If I ever personally need an implant placed, I already know who I’m going to!"

– David Che, DDS, Cocoa Beach, Florida

sundeep rawal"I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Lee Sheldon for over 20 years and have been working with him professionally since I began my practice in Brevard county over 5 years ago. In that time we have collaborated on numerous therapies for our patients and I can say that Dr. Sheldon delivers quality and compassion to each and every one of them. He has taken the time to further his knowledge and understanding to utilize the most current state of the art concepts in dentistry and this combined with his decades of experience make him a tremendous resource to not only patients but other dentists such as myself.

"Joint treatment of patients with Dr. Sheldon has been efficient, our communication is easy, and my patients tell me every time just “how nice Dr. Sheldon is…"

– Dr. Sundeep Rawal

ryan caudill"Dr. Sheldon and his team treat patients with unsurpassed customer service that will make you feel truly cared for. I am always confident they utilize not only the latest in periodontal advances and technology but also will have a complete understanding about how these advances can increase patient’s experiences and outcomes."

– Dr. Ryan Caudill, Orthodontist

"I have known Dr. Lee Sheldon for close to 10 years. Our relationship began at the University of Florida while I was completing my residency in Periodontics. Dr. Sheldon was one of my clinical instructors. I have always had the greatest admiration for Dr. Sheldon’s clinical skills. In addition, his sincere and compassionate demeanor for his patients and colleagues set him apart. On numerous occasions, Dr. Sheldon has assisted me with various clinical and nonclinical matters.

"Lastly, I have had the honor of being a member of a blog that Dr. Sheldon and I participate with. His contributions are greatly respected and appreciated by myself and many other periodontists and oral surgeons. I am grateful for Dr. Sheldon’s invaluable wisdom and friendship."

– Dennis B. Davis DMD, MS

"Hello Folks, I am a dentist. Several years ago, I chose to travel to – and be cared for by – Dr. Lee Sheldon for my periodontal treatment. Dr. Sheldon is highly educated. He has continued to pursue sophisticated training courses over the years beyond the training required by his DMD degree and his specialty training in periodontics. Dr. Sheldon and his staff are welcoming, thorough and professional.

"They start with a complete exam including assessing the patient’s presenting condition and measuring pocket depths. Of course, presumably all periodontists measure pocket depths, but not all general dentists do, despite the fact that they should. Pocket depth can give a great deal of information about the health of your tissues and therefore the viability of your remaining bone to support your teeth. Dr. Sheldon is thorough and competent, but he does not over-diagnose or over-treat. He will tell you what you need and not create extra work or trauma.

"What is special in addition is that Dr. Sheldon also has a great sense of humor. I like that because, when I can laugh, I can feel more at ease. Don’t think this means that Dr. Sheldon will take your work lightly. He won’t. But he is easy to talk to and to laugh with – when appropriate – and that can make a could-be-anxiety-producing situation a whole lot more comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Sheldon and would look forward to having my next surgery with him if I ever need to have such again. He is also very conscientious in following through to make sure you are okay after the surgery. I am glad to recommend Dr. Lee Sheldon for your periodontal treatment"

– Gail Halperin, DDS

"As a colleague and friend I am happy to endorse Dr. Lee Sheldon in his efforts to provide a first class treatment to the vast array of patients who seek his care. While I am not a patient I have for many years up to today regarded Lee as a Mentor and a friend. He is kind, pleasant and is committed to bringing out the best in others.

"Lee epitomizes professionalism and innovation and is easy to work with because of his compassion and friendliness. I wish him continued success with Solid Bite. If he treats his patients the same way he treats his mentees then Florida will be filled with happy folks."

– Dr. Kendal V.O. Major, Periodontist, Dental Implants, Nassau, Bahamas

"Dr. Lee Sheldon taught me some amazing clinical techniques while I was completing my residency at the University of Florida, where he was an associate clinical professor. I admire Dr. Sheldon for his holistic approach to the treatment of periodontal disease; I believe this clinical approach truly puts the needs of patients first – and of course, it works! He is an outstanding clinician and a true genius in the field of periodontics."

– Jamie Amir, BDS, MS

"Lee might truly be described as both an innovator and a maverick in the field of Periodontics, perpetually seeking truth over accepted belief through contemporary scientific research. When found, he then effectively implements those new treatment concepts that will best benefit his patients, into his armamentarium of available therapies."

– Colin S. Richman DMD, Atlanta, Georgia

"Dear Lee,
It gives us great pleasure to write you a letter of appreciation for the fantastic care we received at Solid Bite recently.

You are deserving of praise for your selection of employees that provided quality care in an expeditious manner. We were treated with professionalism, but yet felt like family. We highly recommend Solid Bite and we look forward to our future visits."
