Dr. Schmidt's philosophy on Dentistry:
"I believe that as dentists we are treating the whole person, not just the mouth. Science has revealed connections between oral and systemic health. My goal as a dentist is to also treat the person, by listening to their concerns and desires. A person's smile is a very important part of who they are. I want my patients to feel good about their teeth. By working together we can set achievable goals for a beautiful and healthy smile."

You’re never fully dressed without a smile.
