    Dr. James L. Schmidt & Associates


  • Thirty three years ago I had crowns installed on several of my front teeth, for cosmetic reasons. This year I realized it was time for a change , I went to Dr. Schmidt for a consultation this spring, and today I cannot stop smiling. Dr. Schmidt replaced the existing crowns , added 4 existing crowns on top, and eight veneers on the bottom teeth. It took 4 painless procedures to give me the confidence to smile again.
  • I felt that my comfort and concerns were the most important issue at hand! Your entire office made me feel important instead of the other way around. Thank you. I have always feared the dentist and also have an irrational fear of loosing all my teeth like my parents. To all of you, thanks, for making me feel important today. Your professional and comforting office deserves to be commended.
