Dr Shakin is a great dentist - besides being patient and kind. Years ago my family was looking for a dentist and he was recommended to us. This was over 25 years ago & we never left. When our daughter was away at college she broke a tooth and came all the way home rather than trust someone else with her teeth. We highly, highly recommend Dr Shakin and his staff.

Dr Shakin is the best dentist ever. He is always on time with your appointments and is the most Gentlest dentist I have ever experienced in my life. He is virtually pain free. When he gives a needle I have never ever felt anything. He should be called Dr Painless.

I have been going to Dr. Shakin for 33 years. Dr. Shakin is an excellent caring, gentle dentist. The office staff is efficient and friendly. The wait time in the office is several minutes! The office is very clean and I would highly recommend Dr. Shakin!

Been using Dr. Shakin for over 30years ~ He’s the BEST !! To put it in perspective, my daughter & family moved to Texas & continued to use Dr. Shakin for all her family’s dental needs. The staff & Christine Cassano (dental hygienist) compliments Dr.Shakin in making your dental visit like visiting family.

Office is efficient with appointments and insurance. My former Dentist (Dr Degetano) retired and Dr shakin was recommended to me by a Dental surgeon. He is top notch and does not try to push anything.

I have been going to Dr. Shakin for over 20 years. He is an excellent dentist and a caring doctor. He takes a strong interest in his patients and spends the time to do the best job possible for them. I have recommended my entire family to him over the years and if the 12 of us everyone continues to use him and everyone is pleased. He is knowledgeable, is an excellent dentist and has a soft touch. His staff is also nice, courteous and friendly
