Welcome to our Practice

Welcome to Lakeland Family Dental, the Oconomowoc dental office of Drs. Eric and Samantha Ruiz!

Our practice has been serving families in the area since 1987, when Dr. Sheild first opened the doors. Although the name of the practice has since changed, we are proud to continue the tradition of providing outstanding, gentle, compassionate, family-centered care!

You’re Our Highest Priority

When you’re visiting our practice, you are our main focus! As a husband-and-wife team, Drs. Eric and Sam understand and respect how important it is to treat people like a part of the family, and you can expect this kind of attention and care at each and every appointment.

We offer our care to the entire family. From toddlers to great-grandparents, we provide personalized care that’s customized to meet your needs, regardless of what stage of life you are in!

A Wealth of Treatments and Services

We know how much simpler life is when you don’t have to hunt all over town to get the care your family needs. Along with providing treatment to all ages, we provide a complete selection of services, from the simplest preventive treatments to advanced and complex care such as orthodontics with Invisalign or tooth replacement with dental implants.

At Lakeland Family Dental, we follow a conservative treatment philosophy. This means that we won’t try to sell you on services that you don’t need. One of our goals is to preserve your good health and help your teeth last you a lifetime. We know that with regular preventive visits, you can avoid many common problems, and just like you, we’d much rather avoid a problem in the first place!

But when you do need treatment, don’t hesitate to give us a call. From fillings to crowns to emergency root canals and extractions, we are here to help you when you need us!

A New Kind of Dental Experience

Who says that dental offices need to be cold, clinical, and uncomfortable? We certainly don’t think so!

We’ve added all kinds of details with your comfort in mind. While you are having your teeth cleaned, kick back and relax with soothing warm blankets, pillows to gently cradle your head, music and headphones to drown out the sounds of the office, and relaxing aromatherapy to help your mind drift away.

If you need a little extra help relaxing, talk to us about nitrous oxide, often known as laughing gas. We want you to feel comfortable and calm throughout your appointment, so please let us know what we can do to help you have a great experience.

Are You Ready to Get Started?
