I had lost many of my teeth to gum disease and knew I did not want dentures. A friend referred me to Dr. Shoemaker for an evaluation. I was a very nervous dental patient during my initial exam, but Dr. Shoemaker and his team were wonderful. In just a short time, I felt as if I was with family. We determined dental implants would be my best option. Dr. Shoemaker has a great chair-side manner and I could not have asked for a better group to perform my dentistry. It has been a great experience. I find myself smiling more now and many of my friends tell me how great I look. I can honestly say that my quality of life has improved and that while implant dentistry is expensive, I would do it again if necessary. They feel like my own teeth. I always tell everyone about my dental care and Dr. Shoemaker. He is the best!
