Keeping Up with the Schmidts – Our Tropical Getaway

August 15, 2016

Stephanie and I had the opportunity this year to take a trip – just the two of us. It’s been awhile since we’ve had any kind of vacation. Even longer since she and I have had the chance to get away by ourselves. We traveled to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands where we enjoyed […]

As he approaches his 40’s and reflects on the dental journey behind him it has been a long road of pain but a journey with the long game in mind.  Sure, he had braces as a kid much like his peers.  A few fillings in college after late nights and a diet change from high […]

A Lasting Smile Implanted

May 17, 2016

She complained that she had bad teeth her entire life. Regardless of how often she brushed, flossed, and even went to the dentist on regular occasion – nothing seemed to work.

A Smile Well Worth the Wait

April 13, 2016

Like so many people, this particular patient was focused on his family first and the thought of attending to his own smile was not even on the radar.

This patient was in her late 20’s and she had always been terribly embarrassed to smile. She would always want to get in photos where only her left side was showing. This led to every time that she could choose a side during a photograph with a group or by herself, she would make sure only […]

Overcoming Dental Fear With Sedation Dentistry

February 22, 2016

A wonderful patient came to our office as a referral from some sedation education that she found on our website. She’d been avoiding the dentist for a quite long time. She was in her early 40s and she felt that she could do cleanings and had done cleanings in the past, but anything more than a cleaning […]

Yet, too often patients who desire straight teeth will delay their treatment. Some patients will even […]
