Dr. Shumway is the best dentist I have been to in my 67 year old life. I feel very comfortable being in his care and I am deathly afraid of dentists.
This was an outstanding experience and I could not have left happier. Excellent service. Would recommend them to friends, family, and anyone looking for a dentist.
These guys are awesome! They took good care of me and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. I will be coming back!
Dr. Shumway and his staff are fantastic! They really go the extra mile to make sure you are getting all your dental needs and to make sure you are comfortable.
More knowledgeable, helpful, and honest than any other dentist I’ve been to. I will be recommending Dr. Shumway at Spokane Family Smiles to anyone who asks.
I cracked an old filling and it was loose. Dr Shumway was able to get me in at the beginning of the next week. Employees are always friendly and helpful. I highly recommend them.
Very grateful to have Dr. Shumway as my dentist. Friendly staff and a great experience every time.
Spokane Family Smiles is an excellent dental experience! The staff is so friendly and always remembers my name and family. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!
You know you are part of the family from the first appointment. Dr. Shumway and his staff will continue to be the place for me and my family for the foreseeable future.
The entire staff is wonderful. I was amazed at how comfortable they made me feel! I would highly recommend them to anyone, especially someone who is fearful of dental work.
When it comes to making dreams come true with your teeth, they are the Walt Disney of Dentistry. Choosing Spokane Family Smiles will be the best decision you can make for your mouth.
By far the best dentist I have experienced. He makes sure you’re always comfortable and explains what he is doing every step of the way.
The whole staff is very nice. Dr. Shumway always makes sure you’re comfortable and is really good at explaining what he is doing.
Absolutely one of the best dentist offices I have been to. The appointment went smoothly and I was kept well informed of what was going on and if there were any issues.
Always a pleasure to visit. Very friendly, warm, and inviting. Very pleased with the dentist and the staff there. They keep me in tip top shape when it comes to my teeth.
I contacted Dr. Shumway on a Saturday and he returned my call personally. He offered to see me in one hour even though his offices were closed. This is ‘above and beyond’ patient care.

Common dental cleaning questions
How frequently do I need to attend dental cleanings and exams?
In order to maintain optimal health, we recommend that most patients attend Spokane Valley dental cleaning and exams twice a year about 6 months apart. For patients experiencing gum disease, more visits might be necessary.
What age should my child start going to the dentist?
We recommend that children come to their first appointment around age 1, or when their first tooth comes in, whichever comes first.
Why do I need to get a teeth cleaning if I brush my teeth?
Great question! While brushing and flossing do an excellent job of removing bacteria from your mouth on a daily basis, a regular “deep clean” to remove built-up plaque is necessary. This will reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
