I have been a patient of Dr. Shoemaker’s since June of 2002. In February of 2008 Dr. Shoemaker removed a back lower molar and placed a single implant. The extraction and placement of the implant was uneventful and so easy. I had absolutely no problems. Today, December 2012, I don’t even think about the implant not being my natural tooth. I brush and take care of it as if it were one of my own. It functions beautifully. I am very happy as one of Dr. Shoemaker’s patients. Everything in his office runs smoothly. He and his staff are the best!
