I came to see Dr. Shoemaker in March of 2001. I had a toothache and after his gentle, conscientious approach to my care, I quickly became a patient of his practice. Dr. Shoemaker placed crowns on my front teeth and no one has ever commented on them because they look like my own natural teeth. I was in need of a partial or implant on my lower right. After analyzing the area, my specific teeth, and x-rays etc. Dr. Shoemaker and I opted for fixed teeth with implants so that I could chew. Knowing the amount of education he has had in placing implants, I knew I was in excellent hands. Due to the doctor’s exceptional treatment I don’t notice which of my teeth are natural or implants I did not think about the money as my lower teeth were failing, and I wanted permanent teeth for chewing, not removable teeth. I do not regret choosing implants. They have been the perfect solution for my dental needs. He did an amazing job with my entire mouth. He always takes his time with me and makes me feel comfortable. In my 11 years in his practice I have had minimal pain. Dr. Shoemaker and his staff were kind and always willing to answer all my questions through out my treatment.
