I have been with Dr. Shoemaker’s practice since July 2008. I had a sister who had implants placed elsewhere and I wanted to discuss the options with Dr. Shoemaker and see if implants would benefit me. We decided that implants would be a great fit to replace the removable partial, that I disliked so much. I have had a good experience with Dr. Shoemaker and his staff and am very satisfied with the outcome of my treatment. I was always comfortable during my visits. I have to learn how to smile again since my teeth are so pretty. I feel like my implants are firmer than my natural teeth. I can eat and chew all the foods I like with no more stomach problems. My implants were expensive but were worth the time and money I have spent. They really are great! I still think they are better than my natural teeth. I recommend Dr. Shoemaker and his office to anyone who is looking for a family environment with a friendly and wonderful staff!
