Anonymous, Lehigh Valley

Dr. Shear is excellent - the best. Professional, caring and genuine. He is extremely knowledgable, gentle, and thinks about what is needed. His decisions are based on care. He doesn't rush to expensive treatments. 100% recommended. Great Doctor and staff.

Anna A., Northampton, PA

Dr. Shear is a perfectionist. He pays great attention to detail and really, you're not done until *he's* done. But when he's happy with the work he did to your mouth I promise, *you* will be happy. He is a total wizard with that $#@! Cavitron, far better than anyone else that's ever worked on my mouth. He's been my periodontist for 20+ years. Under his guidance my dentition has improved tremendously. Medical specialists are not inexpensive but there comes a time when we reach a certain age and we need their guidance. Dr. Shear is tops!

Walter C., Bethlehem

I have a long history of dental issues going back to a broken cheek bone as a teenager( some 20 years back). I've been having a lot of restoration work done over the last few years, and that included two recent periodontal procedures (November 2018 and February 2019). I talked to different periodontists in the Lehigh Valley, but ultimately felt most comfortable and confident with Dr. Shear. He is excellent, detailed and cares for his patients - plus he has a sharp wit and his staff could not be nicer- they're responsive prior to appointments and procedures, answering any questions you might have and follow up the day following the procedure just to see how you feel and if there is anything you need. I would and will recommend Dr. Shear above anyone else around.

Margret R., Bethlehem

I have been a patient of Dr. Shear's for over 30 years. I trust his judgement, his expert advice and his skill. He is the best.

William K., Bethlehem

I have been a patient of Dr. Shear's for many, many years. I have had multiple surgeries, multiple implants and visit the hygienist twice a year. I am totally convinced that had I not gone to Dr. Shear 30+ years ago, I would be wearing dentures. He is extremely good at what he does. The staff is very professional and caring. The hygienist, Rebecca, focuses on every aspect of my dental health and also has additional insight as to how I can continue to maintain my health. This group in simply the best!

Callie H., Coopersburg

Terry H., Palmerton

Mario P., Lehighton

I have been a patient of Dr. Shear's for more that 12 years. I have had some unique periodontal challenges for Dr. Shear which were quickly solved. Dr. Shear is very meticulous and professional in his work, experienced first hand through implant surgery. Dr. Shear is always available for questions or concerns. He exhibits a friendly, positive and professional attitude. In my opinion, Dr. Shear is an expert in his field providing the best care possible. I recommend Dr. Shear to anyone expecting excellent periodontal care. I have the highest respect for him and his practice. Also, thanks to his excellent and friendly support staff.

Caring professionals providing excellent dental care.

Gary F., Bethlehem

Have been going to Dr. Shear for over 10 years and he and his staff have always been thoughtful, knowledgeable, helpful and professional which is why I keep coming back to his office. He keeps in contact with my primary dentist when he finds something that needs to be followed up with. The office has always been extremely clean even before the coronavirus pandemic. They even think of patients by having a supply of bottle water to help calm the nerves.

Raymond H., Bethlehem

Dr. Elliot Shear always strives to provide the very best quality treatment for his patients in helping them maintain good oral health. He achieves this by constant study of new treatment modalities and advancements in the dental literature he reads both subscribed and online and by the numerous courses and the periodontal conventions with the lectures he attends. Dr. Shear is a very caring person for his patients well being throughout their treatment and nothing is more important to him then producing a successful outcome for them. He and his Staff provide a kind, professional, treatment environment for their patients always. Additionally, and most importantly, Dr. Shear works very closely with his referring dentists, be they general practioners or specialists. He makes himself available to these referring dentists by phone, by meeting directly with them to discuss complex cases, and his staff provide the very best correspondence and updates to these referring doctors keeping them well informed of the shared treatment progress of their patients. This precise and frequent communication is absolutely critical for good patient treatment. It was my pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with him for over 38 years before I retired. When I referred patients to him, I always had the confidence that they would receive the best of dental care and sound judgement in their treatment planning. Sincerely, Dr. Raymond Haggerty, Retired
