I had a tooth that needed to come out. My dentist suggested I see Dr. Shoemaker to have it removed. So in April of 2013 I meet Dr.Shoemaker and his great, friendly staff. He removed the tooth and asked what my plans were for the rest of my teeth. I had chalky teeth that keep chipping and breaking off. He suggested that I have a complete dental physical and allow him to show me options for my missing teeth on the lower as I had a 10 year old partial that I was not wearing. Dr. Shoemaker found that I could replace that partial with a fixed implant bridge or an implant supported partial or denture. I knew I wanted a fixed implant bridge. Dr. Shoemaker and his experienced staff took wonderful care of me. His assistants always made me want to keep my appointments as I always enjoyed my visits and time with each of them. We became family. They even worked with me financially. It was worth the investment of time and money as I am so very pleased with my results. I smile all the time, visit and socialize with everyone. I no longer have to cover my mouth when speaking to someone or eating something. I love my gravy and fries found I will have to careful as I have added a few pounds as I am enjoying eating again. I would never allow any one to take photos of me. Now I am posing for pictures all the time! Dr Shoemaker’s office was a perfect fit for me dentally and social. I would do my treatment again if I needed it. I am thankful for all they have done for me.
