I had seen Dr. Shoemaker many, many years ago. I was having digestive problems from not chewing my food properly; my lower teeth were in terrible condition. Since I was living in Durant Oklahoma I found him again on line and contacted his office by e-mail asking about an appointment to discuss possible extractions and implants. My first appointment with him was in February 2016. We discussed numerous options for solutions to my teeth problems and found the best one for my pocket book and that would have the best long term success. Dr. Shoemaker was very thorough in explaining the process and the time line for my chosen dental treatment. I found Dr. Shoemaker and his staff to be fantastic! They were very enthusiastic and pleasant through out my treatment. After my treatment was completed I found I am able to relax while eating. I can now chew my food thoroughly and not swallow it partially whole. My stomach is no longer upset after eating. I’ve always smiled a lot but I no longer wonder if people can tell if I had dentures or not. My teeth are GREAT! Having teeth that meet properly and being able to chew properly is such a big deal for my health! I do have a denture on the top but having the lower implant supported denture is so solid and strong it really has improved my eating. I am able to get the most nutrients out of my food now! I would absolutely recommend implants to everyone who needs them. I enjoyed being treated with respect and care and with no sense of judgment for the shape my teeth were in. Dr. Shoemaker and his staff were genuinely concerned with my well being and sincere about making sure everything they did for me was right and that my dentistry turned out the best it could possibly be! Call me crazy but I enjoy seeing my dentist!
