Patient Comfort through Personalized Care

From your first visit to our Lincoln Park dental practice, our team strives to ensure your needs are met and concerns addressed. Rather than rushing right into care during your first visit, we take our time, going at your pace and comfort level.

We believe that taking the time to get to know our patients as the unique individuals they are allows us to provide the best care for your smile. Rather than rushing right into care on your first visit, patients meet with our Lincoln Park dentists first.

During this consultation, we discuss your goals and concerns, encouraging patients to ask questions about their smiles and oral health. By taking the time to develop and foster relationships with each patient, Dr. Shackleford and Dr. Galayda are able to really focus and address your specific needs. 

Providing Affordable Care for Every Patient

Our dedication to personalized care goes beyond treatment planning for each unique smile. We know that navigating dental insurance coverage and third-party financing can be confusing. At The Dental Clinic, we believe that the cost of care should never prevent patients from receiving the care they deserve. In addition to accepting most major credit cards, our Lincoln Park practice also accepts CareCredit no-interest financing. 

Our Downriver dentists also also accept a number of insurance plans, including Guardian, Aetna, Cigna, and United Concordia to name a few. Our insurance manager is happy assist patients in determining their coverage and can answer any questions you might have about your plan’s benefits.
