Laurie Shepherd, DDS (Oakland, CA)
Re: Anyone have a great dentist?
Dr. Laurie Shepherd in Montclair is simply wonderful -- the best dentist I've had. I found out about her here after a not so great experience with a Rockridge hipster dentist. I think if you check the archives you'll find other posts recommending her. Though she is not a pediatric dentist, she's been caring for my 10 yr old son for several years as well. Office (510) 339-1045 actually has parking too. Please tell her I happily sent you... Basha
Re: Dentists in Montclair
Dr. Laurie Shepherd in Montclair is absolutely wonderful: warm, communicative, extremely knowledgable of updated dentristry practices, and an excellent clinician. I have a difficult set of teeth and Dr. Shepherd has attended to my ''issues'' and concerns superbly. Her office is right next door to the Montclair donut shop and Chevron gas station (with free parking in the lot behind the office). Her hygenist Michelle is wonderful. Her office is very updated and pleasant. Her techs are gentle and friendly. Can't recommnend her highly enough. Laurie E Shepherd, DDS - General Dentist 2087 Mountain Blvd Oakland, CA 94611 Ph: 510-339-1045

Dr. Laurie Shepherd in Montclair Village is AMAZING!! Cindy
Re: Looking for Dentist for 3year old
I would recommend Dr. Laurie Shepherd. She's in Montclair on Mountain Blvd (#510-339-1045.) I actually found her through many recommendations on BPN. She is a family dentist. My four year old son loves her and she is patient, gentle and explains what she is doing as she does it. She has all kinds of little treats she gives the kids (new toothbrush, toothpaste, stickers, etc.) so they look forward to going. She is also great with adults (and I am not a big fan of going to the dentist.) Good luck! Sarah
Re: Dentist for spirited 6-year-old
We are extremely happy with Dr Laurie Shepherd, who also takes care of our teeth too. She's in Montclair at 510-339-1045. My daughter actually likes going to her!!! We have a very spirited child who was very afraid of the dentist, even more so after we tried a visit to Dr. Denise Bass-Allen. That visit traumatized my child for months-- Denise was rude to her, made us wait a long time, and the office layout was terrifying to my 3 year- old, since all the chairs are in the open, and you can watch all the other kids. Some of those kids were not exactly enjoying their visit...
Fan of Dr. Shepherd
Re: East Bay woman dentist
I've been happy with my dentist of 4 years, Laurie Shepherd in Montclair. She and her staff seem pretty relaxed and friendly, with a good emphasis on preventative care, and happy to answer questions. I've got Delta Dental, which they've billed with no problems. I've not needed any major work, just cleanings and a few fillings. Evette
I cannot recommend LAurie Shepard enough. SHe is a fabulous, gentle and caring dentist for adults and especially for children. My kids actually love to go see her, and ask to go. She is very personal and really spends time to talk about dental care or whatever the issue is. She is also very pragmatic and helpful in terms of advising what treatments to do when according to your needs and your dental insurance coverage. we wouldn't go anywhere else! kristin
RE: Dentist who doesn't push x-rays
Have you called Laurie Shephard Page to see what she says about X-rays? I've found her to be very helpful and her staff very responsive. Maybe that would be a good first step.
Our entire family sees Dr. Laurie Shephard in Montclair, she is very good with our five year-old. JB
Please respond. I found Dr. Laurie Page-Shephard's (Montclair) name in the archives, with one very brief note about a nice crown she gave someone once. I'm wondering: does anyone have any long-term experience as her dental patient? I am very dentist-shy, having just come off a year of near-constant dental work with a San Francisco dentist that has left me in a lot of discomfort. I need to have a bunch of dental work redone (a crown, a filling, and an assessment of whether I'm allergic to certain dental materials), and am nervous. Lisa
