Dr Shane Retirement

After 50 years of practicing dentistry, I have decided to pursue a hopefully happy retirement.  Monday, April 25th will be my last day.  Time has passed quickly and I still enjoy dentistry, but I have developed other interests along the way.

I have received great support from past and present staff, for which I am thankful.  Dr. Detmer and Dr. Reynolds will be continuing the care for all of my patients.  My wife and I look forward to continuing with their care as well.

I want to thank all of my patients for their support over the years.  I wish you all of the best in life and as you continue on at Blue Ash Dental Group.

Yours in retirement,
Dr. Michael Shane

Please Welcome Dr. Kyle W. Reynolds

Dr. Kyle W. Reynolds, DMD, is a 2009 graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. After 5 years practicing in West Chester, Ohio and Harrodsburg, Kentucky, he joined us at Blue Ash Dental Group. Dr. Reynolds prides himself on taking time to get to know each patient and discussing treatment options that meet each patient’s specific priorities and needs. Whether it’s been 6 months or 6 years since your last dental visit, you won’t feel judgment from Dr. Reynolds. He will only focus on the next step in getting you back to optimal oral health. When he’s not in the office, Dr. Reynolds loves to stay active. He frequently goes on foreign dental mission trips to remote locations like Honduras and Micronesia. When it’s warm, you can find him on the golf course (normally searching for his lost golf balls), and when it’s cold, he loves to ski. He’s an avid college sports fan and you might spot him wearing his Kentucky blue on game day!
