Our Dental Patients Say it Best

“Dr. Shelley & her team are a fun group of professionals. I actually have fun when I visit the dentist! They always know what my insurance covers and will let me know if there is anything that insurance may not pay. I have been going to this office for over 13 years and have been seen by Dr. Shelley for nearly 17 years. I have never had any issues with the care I have received nor with insurance or billing practices. I have recommended family, coworkers and many friends to their practice based on the overall experience, it’s simply the best!”

Brian M., Powell, OH |

“I discovered this office by doing my research and reading reviews... Today was my first visit...I honestly have to say, my time with them was an all around great experience. I don't typically write reviews unless I'm impressed and today Powell dental group impressed me. They really took the time to explain and motivate me and were so kind and pleasant to be around that I almost felt like I've known them for years!... These people are friendly and well educated. I recommend them 100%”

Mike J., Shawnee Hills, OH |

“I am a huge fan of Powell Dental Group! Prior to coming here, I had bad experiences but the staff at Powell Dental Group, especially Dr. Shelly, are great. They put you at ease with a nice environment, are very gentle with the procedures including when needles are needed and have a very high-tech office (digital x-rays, LCD TVs w. headphones during longer procedures, etc). Multiple of my friends go here now because of how I rave about them - and I rarely feel this excited about a place, let alone a dentist office.
