He is 1 of 34 dentists in Texas and 1 of 596 United States dentists with diplomate status with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
He has been performing implant dentistry in his practice for more than 27 years. He is one of the first dentists to go through the advanced implant dentistry training at the Misch International Implant Institute and has been personally trained by Dr. Carl Misch, the founder of that institute. Dr. Misch is known as a world-renown implantologist, clinician, author and teacher in implants for more than 35 years. Dr. Shoemaker’s extended experience in the academic aspects of implant dentistry as well as the hands on experience he receives every time he trains with Misch International Implant Institute, has allowed Dr. Shoemaker to not only keep up to date in the ever changing field of implant surgery, but has also allowed him to bring many of these new developments to Texoma for the exclusive treatment of his dental patients. Dr. Shoemaker continues to travel in and out of the state to perform advanced implant surgery and training every year.
For 18 years, he worked closely with the Women’s Crisis Center of Sherman in restoring not only the smiles of abused women but their lives as well. Dr. Shoemaker, in 1998, was nationally featured and recognized by Time Magazine and talk show host, Maureen O’Boyle. Ron Clark, Texas House of Representative District 62 also sent a Resolution adopted by the House of Representatives acknowledging his service to the community. The Sherman Democrat and Dallas Morning News featured articles about his years of service to the women in the Sherman community.
He and his wife Tammy have raised three boys in the Sherman area. He enjoys playing golf, weight training, snowboarding, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, birding, fishing, playing the guitar and singing. He is an active Sabbath-school teacher for 6-10 year olds in his local church. The family treasures their time together and the friends they have made in the Texoma area.
