I was looking for a new general dentist in September of 2009 and an acquaintance in Gainesville told me about Dr. Shoemaker. I phoned and made an appointment with him. After meeting Dr. Shoemaker and his wonderful staff I was pleasantly surprised to find he was also highly trained in implant dentistry which, for my needs, was a plus. I felt and continue to feel that he is extremely knowledgeable and a great dentist. I am really enjoying the benefits of my implants. I can eat anything I want and now have a great smile!
