Dr. Sam Axelrod

For over 30 years, Dr. Axelrod has been at the forefront of the technology and techniques utilized within the field of General & Family Dentistry, along with a special interest in Cosmetic Dentistry. Widely respected by colleagues, peers and patients alike, Dr. Axelrod is always striving to offer the finest dentistry available anywhere.

Even from his earliest days practicing, he realized that patient comfort – keeping the patient relaxed and at-ease – is a crucial part of the dentist/patient relationship. This is clearly evident throughout Your Smile Dental Care. The practice is a living testament to Dr. Axelrod’s ongoing commitment to raising the bar for patient care. Along with the Your Smile team, Dr. Axelrod has created a relaxed environment, combining vast knowledge and experience with the latest techniques and technology to focus our expertise on you, the patient. Gentle, caring, yet highly professional - it’s the example Dr. Axelrod sets for all to follow at Your Smile Dental Care.

Whether it’s for a simple family check-up (even a child’s first visit – your child is special and we treat him/her as such) or much more advanced cosmetic work (such as shaping, veneers, crowns or implants), Dr. Axelrod and the Your Smile team will ensure that your visit, and your smile, is extraordinary.

However, for patients it’s Dr. Young’s personal approach that sets him apart. Relaxed and non-judgmental, Dr. Young is fantastic with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of various conditions associated with gum disease. It is his gentle, yet frank and no-nonsense approach that patients truly appreciate. Highly qualified, highly respected, and highly regarded by his patients – that’s our Dr. Shawn Young.
