Dr. Schmidt is happy to provide advanced dental procedures such as Endodontics, Implants, and Dental Cosmetics.

“My ideas about dentistry are straightforward: Do what is right, and do it right. I appreciate the opportunity to evaluate and correct dental problems that would otherwise have an unfortunate effect on people’s lives. Emotional and physical health depend on a healthy mouth. It makes people happy to have a great experience and the dentist, and it makes me happy to provide that experience! Interacting with patients and staff brings me a lot of joy. I love doing detailed and meticulous tasks, and I could not imagine a better career choice. There’s a lot of value in what a healthy smile can do for a person.”
