Cosmetic and General Dentistry

Dear Valued Friends,

We are excited to introduce Dr. Matthew Shachat as our new practice owner.

Dr. Shachat is a graduate of Tufts University with a degree in Chemistry. He attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston and graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Medicine.

Upon graduating, Dr. Shachat focused on providing treatment to underserved populations in rural Massachusetts and later in Chicago's South and West sides. He did further training in pediatric dentistry involving nitrous oxide and oral sedation.

Dr. Shachat aims to provide a non-judgmental and positive experience, especially for those with dental anxiety. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, the Illinois State Dental Society, and the Chicago Dental Society.

Outside of work, Dr. Shachat enjoys trying new restaurants, visiting national parks and baking. On a typical Saturday you'll find him reading a book in the park with his corgi, Cannoli.

I also want to share that I am making substantial changes in my life and for my family. We will be relocating to South West Florida. This has been a difficult decision to make as I will be stepping away from the dental practice and I have enjoyed treating each and every one of you. It is difficult to say goodbye and we are very excited about the new adventures my whole family is about to experience.

I will be assisting in the transition and I assure you that Dr. Shachat will continue to sustain the reputation and standing that the office has managed to build for over 13 years. He will be retaining our wonderful and competent staff and I am confident Dr. Shachat will excel in this role and bring amazing new energy to the practice.

Once again, thank you for being a loyal patient over the years and we look forward to seeing you at your next schedule appointment.

Yours truly,

Dr. Laurie Schumacher
