Small business is the lifeblood of our community – business owners pour their hearts and souls into their businesses.

Not only are these businesses talented at what they do, but they enrich our communities with their numerous contributions and involvements, and help to grow and support our local economy. We celebrate some of these businesses here in our special Great Community Businesses Special Advertising Section. We encourage you to spend a little time reading these spotlighted profiles and getting to know these businesses. And be sure to stop in and say hello – and tell them that you saw their Great Community Business highlighted in the pages of Style Magazine!

A. Rademacher, D.D.S.
Micki, Carolyn, Dr. Rademacher and Sue

A. Rademacher, D.D.S.

3301 Ponderosa Road
Shingle Springs  |  530-677-1403

Dr. A. Rademacher, D.D.S. and his highly trained staff head up his dental practice on ten gorgeous acres, located at 3301 Ponderosa Road in Shingle Springs. Dr. Rademacher has been serving the citizens of El Dorado County since 1967, offering General, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry.
    Dr. Rademacher is also known to be an avid pilot of 35 years and enjoyed being a volunteer member for 20 of those years with “The Flying Samaritans” which provide free dental care to the Mexican citizens south of our border.
    After becoming a pilot during World War II he trained bombardiers, then earned his degree at Northwestern School of Dentistry. Dr. Rademacher was later re-instated in the Army during the Korean War and assigned to Letterman Army Hospital in Presidio, San Francisco. Working side by side with his lifetime mentor, the world-renowned Dr. Shira, they gave hope back to the soldiers that had been critically injured by Napalm during that conflict.
    On a personal note: I have been in this profession for many years now and am still finding it enjoyable and challenging. We live in a beautiful area that shouldn’t be taken for granted, and I am so grateful to be a part of this wonderful community.
    I love to learn and to implement the many new and exciting procedures that have evolved in the ever-changing sciences and technology of today.
    I am proud to say that along with my excellent staff my patients are a part of my extended family. So many have become my close friends. We provide our patients with the same courteous honest evaluations that I would want for my family and myself along with our commitment to provide quality dental care.
    As we continue to provide care for our many established patients and friends we look forward to meeting and caring for the new patients that are joining us.
