Kyle Shank, DDS

Dr. Shank understands that many people have extreme phobias and anxieties about going to the dentist. That’s why he puts a heavy focus on making patients feel comfortable, taking additional time with each patient as needed, and making their visits as stress-free, relaxing, and non-pressuring as possible.

As part of his commitment to staying on the leading edge of his profession, Dr. Shank has previously held a position as an adjunct faculty at the Indiana University School of Dentistry where he instructed third and fourth year dental students in restorative dentistry and prosthodontics. By staying abreast of the latest innovations and technology, he is able to provide the best possible care for his patients, both in terms of a better patient experience as well as the quality of the treatment they receive.  In 2017 Dr. Shank started his own dental lab, Indianapolis Digital Dental Lab (www.IndianapolisDigitalDental.com) to better serve his patients as well as those of a small number of doctors whom he chooses to work with.

Dr. Shank and his staff are especially proud of the very personalized attention they provide to each of their patients. From seeing patients on time to the personal follow-up calls and accommodation of emergency cases, Shank Center for Dentistry has earned a reputation of exemplary customer service.

When he’s not teaching or creating beautiful smiles for his patients, Dr. Shank enjoys traveling, spending time with friends and family, playing the guitar, participating in shooting sports, and running or exercising. He lives on the south side of Indianapolis in Greenwood with his wife, Dr. Brooke Shank (orthodontist), and their two miniature schnauzers, Chloe and Audrey.

My experience with Dr. Shanks office was excellent. I was not only extremely comfortable the staff was very respectful and polite and I can honestly say that this has been the best experience and my 31 years of going to the dentist. Words can't even describe how happy I am that I not only got to save my tooth but the pain was very minimal I'd like to thank everyone at the office especially Dr. Shank.
