You’re likely to find that Bear Creek Family Dental exceeds your expectations. We genuinely care about your health, comfort, and satisfaction, and this shows every time you interact with us - whether over the phone, during an examination or consultation, or after your treatment. We will give you our undivided attention, professional skills, compassionate touch, and do everything we can to make your visits as pleasant as possible.
Our team is dedicated to continuing education. Our practice invests in equipment that will make appointments more relaxed, diagnosis more accurate, and treatments more precise with predictable, positive results. We know that scheduling visits for your family can feel time-consuming and stressful, and that dental care may seem out of reach because of budgetary constraints - and this goes without mentioning any potential stress about dental work! At Bear Creek Family Dental, we do what we can to remove obstacles in the way of you and your loved ones getting the care you deserve.
We offer family block appointments for your convenience, and our comprehensive service mix makes it easier for all dental care to be provided under the same roof. Last but not least, we have flexible financing options in place so that you don’t have to delay the care you and your family deserve.

We know you’ve got a life to get back to after your visits, and the fewer appointments there are to schedule, the better. That’s why we offer same-day services and accommodate emergency appointments.
Digital x-rays and intraoral cameras help us obtain high-resolution images within minutes while reducing your exposure to radiation. We can snap the photos while you’re comfortable in the chair, and you can see what we see while we see it.
If you’re anxious about dentistry for any reason — from negative past experiences to a fear of the sounds and smells associated with dental offices — we can take the edge off with the assistance of light sedation in the form of nitrous oxide.
Dental implants are truly the best option when it comes to replacing missing teeth and stabilizing dentures. Dr. Shull has the advanced training and technology to be able to provide dental implants from the comfort of your dental home.
