Meet Dr. Shane Eckels
Dr. Eckels is thrilled to be serving the Sarasota area after spending the past four years practicing in both Orlando and Palmetto. He aims to touch every patient and bring out the best in every smile by providing exceptional dentistry through kindness, attention to detail and the use of state of the art technology.
Dr. Eckels graduated from Niagara University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in Chemistry and Business. From there he went on to Philadelphia and the acclaimed Temple Kornberg School of Dentistry. Currently, Dr. Eckels is involved in the Shepard Project Dental Study Club and the Academy of General Dentistry.
He is originally from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania where growing up he played many sports, excelling in baseball in football. While at Niagara, Dr. Eckels played collegiate baseball. He moved to Florida about 5 years ago. In his spare time he enjoys living an active life and staying fit any way he can. He loves spending time outdoors with his grills and smokers while cheering for the Pirates, Penguins and Steelers. (We hope no fights in the practice break out between the two doctors when the Cubs and Pirates play each other). Currently, Dr. Eckels resides in Lakewood Ranch with his wife Amanda and cat Rory.
