Meet Dr. Randy Shook
I was a senior in high school when I wrote for my term paper “I want to become a dentist because…” Little did I know what a wonderful profession I had chosen! Having the ability to create a pleasant experience for my patients, learning about them as individuals and getting to hear their stories has been a joy for the past 35 years. Without question, the best part of my day is helping and interacting with my dental friends! I learn so much from them. When I recently had a short sabbatical from dentistry, I found there was a major hole in my life! Then, I had the opportunity to join the Regis Court Dental Associates team and I was so excited to once again help my dental friends!
Education and ExperienceI was born in Eau Claire WI and soon after my family moved to northern Wisconsin where I learned to enjoy the outdoor life. My nickname from my kids is “Nature Bob”. I attended UW- Superior and graduated with a degree in Biology and Chemistry. I then moved to Milwaukee and attended Marquette University Dental School where I graduated in 1983. I have worked as a general dentist for the past 35 years and have owned 3 private practices. I served as an Air Force Dentist and was honored and humbled when I received the Meritorious Service Medal. I truly believe I have lived a blessed life and feel it is important to give back to my community. I volunteer at The Chippewa Valley Technical School Dental Clinic as well as the Free Clinic here in Eau Claire. I am a member of the Wisconsin Dental Association, Western Wisconsin Study Club and am a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry.
Outside of the Office
During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife Sheila (a dental hygienist with me at Regis Court Dental Associates) and our dog Shadow. We have 3 grown, married children and 1 grandchild. It keeps us busy traveling to see them as they are spread across the world!!! During the summertime I enjoy the water, kayaking and fly fishing. I do like to golf, but sometimes I find it just too darn frustrating!!! I have developed a passion for wood carving and many nights you will find me down in my wood shop. I am excited to join the wonderful team at Regis Court Dental Associates in helping them continue their goal of providing quality dental care!
