looking for a local dentist

If you have the pleasure of living in the Lakeland, Florida area and are looking for a local dentist, look no further. Dr. Sheumaker is not only a contributing community member here in Lakeland (he served as president of the local dental association amongst other community service), he has also been serving our community as a local dentist for more than 20 years now!

We know you and your family want a dentist that is close to home, so you can coordinate many of your daily activities as seamlessly as possible and take the family group to the dentist at the same time. A local dentist can save hours missed from work and school that you want to spend on quality time with your family instead of on a lengthy drive for regular dental checkups. And if you are ever faced with a more urgent need, you’re going to need a dentist quickly who is close to home.

If your toothache needs emergency care, we’ll be right there as not only your local dentist, but hopefully also the dentist you would choose for quality of care. We’re here to help. Here is a short list of some of the signs to watch for to know that you need a dentist urgently:

  • Intense tooth, mouth, or jaw pain or aches
  • A loose adult tooth.
  • Persistent sores, soreness, or swelling in your gums, mouth and or jaw.
  • An infection at the root of your tooth (this is known as an abscess and can be very serious if left untreated)
  • Bleeding and aching throughout your mouth

You don’t want to be forced to make a decision once you are already in severe pain or distress. Having a good relationship with your local dentist is the best way to feel confident you know where to go in an emergency. Here at the office of G.R. Sheumaker Jr. DDS, we offer discounts to all non-insured patients as well as accepting plans from Delta Dental, Cigna, MetLife, Humana, and Comp Benefits.

We offer a 10% discount for new patients as well. We want you to get the care you need!
