Dr. Shapiro is experienced, thorough, honest, funny (though his humor might not be for everyone) and just an overall great dentist. He doesn't deal with insurance, so that keeps his cost down. That may be an annoyance for some, but we don't have insurance. He treats our whole family and all 3 kids have had great experiences with him. His assistant, Vicki is wonderful. His office is not the most up-to-date, but that doesn't change the excellence of his practice. One of my favorite things about him is that he prefers to under-treat. One dentist wanted to charge me $400 a side for scaling, but Dr. Shapiro said, and I quote, "Well, [your gums] are nothing to write home about, but better home care should take care of that." If I had to make a criticism, it would be that he's sometimes not the absolute gentlest when he's working, but the outcome is always worth the discomfort. Overall, you may find a cheaper dentist through a discount program or something, but you get what you pay for, and you'll never be disappointed with the service Dr. Shapiro gives you.

Went to Dr Shapiro after fancy dentist on Peachtree St recommended a $2500 treatment plan after looking in my mouth for 20 seconds. Dr Shapiro's sense of humor made me feel relaxed and he understood that I had a limited budget. After a thorough exam and cleaning he recommended nothing more than a 6 month follow up. If you are looking for a simple dentist who is not trying to sell you the latest expensive treatment in order to pay for his fancy office then Dr Shapiro is your man.

dropping this man as my dentist was the best move I ever made. He is unpleasant and made every session even worst by his unfunny teasing of the assistant he then had, a nice woman named Avis. Most of the work he did on me is now having to be done at great expense.I wish I had reported him to the dental assocation . Maybe I still can.
