I was displeased with my previous dental care and knew my daughter saw Dr. Shoemaker. I decided to call his office in 2011. After meeting Dr. Shoemaker and discussing my dental history and what I liked and didn’t like about my mouth, he did an exam and took x-rays. I had no molar teeth on the upper left and was unable to eat on that side. We discussed placing implants so I could eat on both sides of my mouth and not wear out the teeth on the side I was chewing on. I decided I wanted teeth so I could eat well again. My surgery went fine and I am glad I can eat better now. Dr. Shoemaker is very through and a true perfectionist.
