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 allowed him to bring many of these new developments to Texoma for the exclusive treatment of his dental patients.
