I had spent many hours in the dental chair prior to becoming Dr. Shoemaker’s patient. I joined Dr. Shoemaker’s practice a year ago. Everyone in his office is wonderful; we have become friends and I feel I have known them for a long time. I had a tooth removed and was traumatized by the thought of it, but Dr. Shoemaker’s staff stepped up and helped me through the loss. We did replace the tooth with an implant and at first I was not sure about it, but today, 6 months later, it feels like it is part of me. My eating and smile are great! I am glad I have my implant in place! Implants are not cheap but I truly could not put a price on mine. I talk about Dr. Shoemaker to all my family and friends.
