Karen did a great job on my teeth! She’s very thorough, answers any questions you have, and she’s always fun to talk with.
Coming from CT, I had a beautiful smile created from a great dentist in New Haven several years ago. I moved to New Hampshire and looked for the best to take over care. It just so happened that my New Haven dr traveled from CT to VT specifically to have HER OWN smile created by Dr Shanard and highly recommended Dr Shanard. She was absolutely right. Dr Shanard is very meticulous in perfecting your look. She is extremely patient and caring. She and her excellent staff take the time to explain thoroughly procedures, and expectations. I can’t say enough about Contemporary Dental Arts
Dr. Shanard and the staff are amazing!
UPDATE TO EARLIER REVIEW:I have now been a patient with Contemporary Dental Arts (Dr. Lauren Shanard) for nearly three months. I am undergoing a massive amount of work - replacements of many old crowns, three new implants, and a redo of 20-year-old veneers - and while the cost is staggering (as it generally is for this type and quality of cosmetic and restoration work), I am confident that I am making a wise investment at the right place. In the past, I was never charged for temporary crowns (that was a substantial expense at this office which I did not expect), but I have also never had such beautiful provisionals, which I appreciated as the lab took a while to create my permanent crowns (and Dr. Shanard sent them back to be redone because they were not quite perfect enough, also much appreciated). Dr. Shanard is superbly skilled with her hands, aesthetically discerning, medically informed, and up-to-date on the newest dental techniques. She will not settle for "okay" and spends extra time to reach her ideal. She maintains a very good network of related specialists (including my equally excellent periodontist and endodontist, with whom cooperative communication has been exemplary). Dr. Shanard‘s entire staff operates with the same high standards, as well as thoughtfulness and respect for their patients. The sophisticated facility is immaculate. I am now about one-third of the way along in my treatment plan, and up to this point, the results have been exceptional - far better than the work I had done by Manhattan dentists during my many years of living in that city. ORIGINAL REVIEW:As a new patient, I was graciously welcomed into Dr. Shanard‘s beautiful dental office. I was neither rushed nor pressured, considerate accommodations were made for my comfort throughout, and all staff were so very kind and professional. Dr. Shanard is thorough, knowledgeable, compassionate and patient. She clearly explained everything to me in both a medical and easily understandable manner. My initial experience has been excellent and has given me hope in my complex case. I look forward to continuing the relationship.
The new girl that cleans your teeth is fantastic! Penny at the front desk is always wonderful. I always have anxiety about going to the dentist and they are very understanding of that. Highly recommended!
