Sheldon Hough, D.D.S. - Graduate of USC School of Dentistry, Served 4 years with Marines as a Navy Corpsman (1969 - 1973). Because I have fought prostate cancer, you will not find any cutesy slogans or mottos in this advertisement. Nor will you find a list of services offered because of course we perform dental services. Cancer has given me a personal knowledge of fear and of the compassion that can help one through that fear. If you are looking for a dental office that wants to truly understand your concerns; and you want to be treated with compassion, please call for an appointment (even if you just want to make an appointment to talk before an actual treatment appointment, that would be fine - call us). By the way - Marine families, I know how difficult it is to choose health care providers when you are new to the area. I have learned how difficult that is when I was searching for my own cancer treatment. I know the drive is a little further, but I promise you I will do my very best to treat you as if you were my own family. Because I served with you, I know the meaning of "Marine Family". My wife, Tara and I not only have lived in this community for 30 years; but, we truly serve this community, and not just in dentistry but for its betterment in many service organizations, too numerous to mention in the advertisement If we are to truly provide a service, our patients must feel that each staff member is dedicated to serving their patient's needs and that all systems and procedures of the office were created to facilitate that end... We want your experience with us to be positive. The staff makes every effort to assure you are comfortable and relaxed. Please feel free to let us know if we can make improvements.

Dr. Hough has a hard time with patients who question his expertise. He is very defensive and unprofessional. He does seem nice at first as long as you remain passive and accept his word as gospel. He refused to treat me because I questioned his evaluation and told me his path for treatment was to ensure the avoidance of a law suit. He did nothing to make me feel better, charged my insurance for a full exam even though he did not complete it. He refused to give me a copy of my x-rays even though I was willing to pay for them upfront. He is very condescending and uses analogy and metaphor to explain simple medical information. Also, my son had a cavity filled by Dr. Hough, three days later he developed Bell's Palsy on that same side. Coincidence, maybe, maybe not. Overall he delivers poor service. If you want to be treated like a turnip he is good at that.

Dr. Hough may come off as a &q...

Dr. Hough may seem like a nice person, but his dental work is very inferior to other dentists. This was confirmed by my family's having to have his work corrected and/or redone by other dentists.



Dr Hough is a great dentist! ...

Dr Hough is a great dentist! I went to him as a kid and he was the first dentist I ever had that didn't hurt. Now I am living back in my hometown and I take my family to him. His staff is very nice too.
