I had all my teeth removed in March of 2013 and dentures placed. My bottom denture would not stay in my mouth. I could no longer speak clearly. I avoided eating in public and was withdrawing from social activities. I was depressed and had the need to feel whole again! I was no longer able to eat the foods I loved. I found Dr. Shoemaker in the yellow pages in May of 2013. My experience with Dr. Shoemaker and his staff was great! They kept me informed in every portion of my treatment. I am now able to eat anything I want – even tacos! I smile all the time and no longer self conscious. I am able to speak clearly now and would choose to do implants again. The time and the money was so worth it! I had a bad experience as a child with dentist but after becoming a part of Dr. Shoemaker’s dental family I am no longer afraid. It seemed as the other offices I had been to always had their own agenda and was not interested in my opinions. Dr. Shoemaker and his staff really listen to my input. I recommend implant dentistry to my friends and family.
