I found Dr. Shoemaker in January of 2013. I had already had extensive dental treatment but found I was still experiencing a lot of pain. I felt like my teeth were falling apart and had not found a dentist that acted as if he wanted to truly help me. I had experienced previous traumatic and bad dental experiences. I was having a hard time chewing and swallowing. I had to be very careful on choosing what foods I ate. My jaws and muscles were sore from grinding my teeth together. I was feeling tense and irritable concerning my dental situation. I was afraid I was going to lose all my teeth and have to have dentures. I found Dr. Shoemaker and his staff exceptional a 10 out of 10. They all were very caring. I can’t even find words to describe how comfortable I was during and after my treatment was completed. I feel 100% better. My implants are easier to clean than my natural teeth. I am able to chew walnuts now. I feel better now and find myself smiling more. I would choose implant dentistry again if needed and recommend implants to those who need them. I feel I have a long term relationship and commitment with Dr. Shoemaker and his staff both emotionally and monetarily. They were a blessing to me when I thought I was going to loose all of my teeth.
