I had been a patient of Dr. Shoemaker’s since 1987. I had a tooth that had to be removed and I did not want to wear a partial or anything removable so a single implant was the perfect answer. My implant experience was a good and right decision for me. Dr. Shoemaker and his staff kept me well informed at each step and what to expect along the way. I have more confidence and can eat whatever I want without thinking about it now. The implant allows me to keep my smile. The investment of time and money was worth it and I recommend implant dentistry for those who have missing teeth. Dr. Shoemaker and his staff are perfectionists. Not only does his work look right but it feels right which is so important. Dr. Shoemaker is different than the dentist’s I have seen in the past. I will only see him!
