Dr. Bryan Shanahan
I have been in private practice since 1991, and every day I feel blessed to have the opportunity to help people look and feel better. Along the way, I have developed so many substantial and great relationships with my patients and staff, and this is something I never take for granted.
Since I was 15 years old, I knew that I wanted to be a dentist. Back then, my older cousin Bernie, whom I’ve always admired, said he was going to be a dentist, and I wanted to follow in his footsteps. I never changed my mind, and to this day, I know that I have chosen well. I am as happy today with my choice of profession as I was when I made that decision all those years ago. I have a deep passion for what I do, and I hope my patients and team see that in me every day.
I believe that the practice of dentistry is a lifetime pursuit. I constantly seek the best continuing education programs so I can expand my knowledge and skills. By doing this, I can provide my patients with the most up-to-date information available, which greatly assists in their dental care. I have completed all continuums of education at the Pankey Institute, and I am also a faculty member for the Spear Institute and a speaker for the Pride Institute.
I enjoy learning about and working with each of our patients individually. I find it incredibly fulfilling to work toward understanding a patient’s ultimate goals for his or her mouth and embarking on a journey with the person to achieve those goals. I feel my extensive educational background and relentless pursuit of professional information and technology immensely benefit, and even exceed, my patients’ goals for their oral health.
