Ashley D.

Awesome dentist and office. Im terrified of the dentist and they made me feel extremely comfortable and we're very patient with me and i appreciate that. They also didn't try to talk me into procedures or anything i didn't want done. Can't recommend them enough.

Lindsey L.

Took my son here for his dentist appointment and not only were they in time and efficient but the Dr.Schmidt and the hygienist Theresa made my four year old actually ENJOY his visit. Highly recommend going in and seeing them for the dental needs!

Angela C.

I have been afraid of the Dentist for years. First Dentist in a long time that I feel comfortable going to.

Nancy H.

Great dentist, excellent support Team and outstanding customer service.

Rick C.

You know you're in the right place when the dentist, dental assistant, hygienist, and office staff are all welcoming and professional. I told Dr. Schmidt I'd rather try a day in jail than go to the dentist. He made it his priority to make my visits as peaceful and painless. I hid from dentistry for many times in my life but I won't hide from Dr. Schmidt.
