A friend referred me to Dr. Shoemaker in December of 2000. I have been a patient ever since. I was missing several teeth and wore a partial that I hated. Any time I ate food would get under the partial making my eating experience miserable. I am from El Salvador where, because of the war we did not have dentist’s who could fix our teeth. Dr. Shoemaker & I felt that implants would be the best solution for my lifetime smile. So in 2007 and 2008, Dr. Shoemaker performed my implant surgery. My whole family sees Dr. Shoemaker, he is a good dentist. I am so thankful I now live in a place where I can have a good doctor who is able to replace my teeth with dental implants and care for all of my dental needs in one office.
