Dr. Eric Shieh, DDS

Dr. Shieh greatly values prevention, open communication, and efficiency. He believes that no dental treatment can perform better than a patient’s natural teeth, so it is of utmost importance to maintain their natural teeth for as long as possible!

With so many dental providers to choose from and many ways that dentistry can be practiced/applied, Dr. Shieh believes that it is important to have a dental provider that has the same values as their patients and that will inform, prevent, and treat their dentition in a manner that best suits them. The dentist-patient relationship is best applied to both dentist and patient as a life-long commitment that communicates and works with each other.

Dr. Shieh’s family has a long history in dentistry as his grandparents and relatives worked in the dental field either as dentists, dental hygienists, or dental technicians. Although his parents were very open minded and wished for him to pursue whichever career he was interested in, he found himself attracted back to dentistry and passionate about dental health.
