He went to undergraduate college at Nebraska Wesleyan University, a small Methodist university in Lincoln, Nebraska. Dr. Shainholtz attended Nebraska Wesleyan University before entering Dental School. Again, his emphasis was in the sciences and played in the Band. He was a member of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity there.

Dental School began in the fall of 1981 at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry, the day after his twenty-first birthday. Dr. Shainholtz could usually be found in the Endodontic or Oral Surgery clinics when he wasn’t directly involved with a patient of his own. While he knew he had the skill level to enter a number of specialty programs, he loved so many aspects of dentistry that he decided to specialize in all phases of quality dentistry.

Upon graduating from dental school in May of 1985, Todd came upon this practice in Eagle, Colorado after finding out about the opportunity from several different sources, namely trade advertisements, dental suppliers and even a family friend. Since then, he has built his practice upon quality care, empathy for his fellow man and listening to his patients. Our philosophy revolves around giving you, our patients what you want. Dr. Shainholtz is obsessive about continuing education, always wanting to learn new procedures to benefit his patients.

Dr. Todd likes to ski in the winter, as well as vacationing in various tropical locations involving both surfing and scuba diving. In the summertime he likes hiking, biking and hitting the mountain roads in his ’66 Bronco. Also he likes stand-up paddle boarding in the Colorado River and local lakes. He plays trombone in local musicals and even played with a rock band. He plays great music in his office, usually classic rock and the blues, but he takes requests!
