Dr. Sheldon's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Sheldon "When I got out of dental school, I took over a practice from an older dentist who had had a stroke. His office, techniques and knowledge had not changed since he started practicing 40 years earlier. I swore that I would keep up with all the advances in dentistry, including new equipment and techniques, and I have done so ever since. Dentistry is as much an art as a science, and the ability to use different skills in the healthcare environment appealed to me. I wanted to be a dentist since I was 11. I enjoy working with people and it involves people skills that appeal to me. I enjoy the challenge of restoring a mouth and improving the overall health of the patient. The smile on a patient's face, especially one who has not smiled for years, is most gratifying. DDS: Creighton University School of Dentistry BA: Psychology, University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) Member: American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, American Dental Association, Nebraska Dental Association, Omaha District Dental Society In his spare time, Dr. Sheldon enjoys spending as much time as possible with his grandchildren, working out, attending Nebraska football, UNO hockey and Creighton basketball games and reading."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sheldon "Treating patients for sleep apnea and having them come back and tell me that their lives have been changed is also exciting. They sleep better, feel better, their hypertension is decreased and they even have personality changes for the better. I hope to give every patient better health and an improved appearance."

Carmen was my dental hygienist and greeted with a smile. She is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, skillful and a pleasure to spend time with. Dr. Sheldon came by to check on her findings and was his usual happy and friendly self. He is also knowledgeable and skilled in his profession. I am so pleased to have made the change to Horizon for my dental care. What a great group of people!

My wife and I have been a patient of Dr. Norman Sheldon for many years and have enjoyed his professionalism and courtesy extended to us. I would and have recommended him to others that are in need of dental work. We have been very satisfied with the dental hygenist and office staff.

I switched to Dr. Sheldon from a dentist in a different office. He is very skillful and knowledgable, and also builds a good rapport with his patients. I hate going to the dentist but it's much more tolerable when someone as great as Dr. Sheldon is working on you. I was recommended to this office by a family member, and I would definitely recommend others.
