I joined Dr. Shoemaker’s dental family in 1996. My mouth was a wreck. I had been wearing a partial but it had been destroyed and I had holes and gaps in my mouth and smile. In his practice you find that Dr. Shoemaker and his staff are genuinely interested in you as a person along with your dental health. I didn’t want to be a number but wanted a dental practice who would take time to focus on me and my dental issues as an individual. Dr. Shoemaker and his staff were wonderful and excel in giving their patients the best of dental care. They make you comfortable. The communication between the doctor and assistants are excellent and they keep you informed about your dental treatment and your expected results. After 18 months or so I no longer had gaps or holes in my mouth. My smile is perfect, I can’t tell which teeth are natural or implants. Dr. Shoemaker’s hygienist is awesome. I really enjoy having my teeth cleaned. I no longer have pain when I eat and can enjoy steak, chips, and even croutons. It is wonderful to have a new smile without pain or discomfort. Dr. Shoemaker is a caring and excellent dental practitioner.
