I have been a patient of Dr. Shoemaker’s since August of 2005. I had a bad tooth that he extracted and placed bone before he could place an implant. I have a lot of extra bone in my mouth so I could not wear a denture or partial so an implant was my best long term solution. Dr. Shoemaker and his staff have always been excellent during any and all of my treatments. They waiting until I was totally healed and didn’t try to rush my treatment. Patient care is always first in their office. My investment of time and money was well worth it. I would consider implants for future treatment if needed. I no longer have an abscess and of course the infection is gone. I chew great now. I tell others to see Dr. Shoemaker that every penny spent there is worth it and I love the place.
