I had seen Dr. Shoemaker years ago. I switched dentists due to insurance coverage. Many years had past, I had not seen a dentist in at least the last four years and with the dental problems I was having it was time to find one. I decided I would call Dr. Shoemaker and see if he could help me. So in July 2016 I found myself in his office. After a complete look see at my mouth, Dr. Shoemaker, my husband and I discussed my dental problems and the different treatment plans that would benefit me. I had had some poor dental treatment in the past and was reluctant to move forward but after our discussion, seeing the pictures and the x-rays of my mouth I knew I had to do something for myself and my mouth. The destruction from neglect in my mouth was evident and it was even more obvious that Dr. Shoemaker had a great plan to solve all my dental problems. It was time for me to move forward with my treatment. The care I received from Dr. Shoemaker and his staff was great! I felt loved! They are a great bunch of people. They were kind and always kept me comfortable. Thanks to Dr Shoemaker and his dental team, I am no longer afraid of the dentist or my dental appointments! I am able to eat what want and am able to chew up everything- even my favorites-onions! I smile easier now and am no longer ashamed of my smile. My mouth feels like it did years ago when I had my own healthy teeth. I am able to pronounce my words again. I can speak better! When I compare Dr. Shoemaker’s office to the other offices I have experienced I feel he has more technology to help him with his patients and that the years of extra education and experience sets him apart. I am happy with my treatment and so excited that I can eat again. I always refer my friends and family to Dr. Shoemaker.
