Dr. Schmidtke's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Schmidtke "It is my pleasure and privilege to lend a helping hand to our wonderful patients and staff as we work together to achieve amazing results every day. Orthodontics is such a special occupation, one that can make a difference in so many lives. Watching a patient's self-confidence increase throughout treatment as their smile becomes perfect is amazing. Their new smiles light up the room! Orthodontics provides a great opportunity to get to know each and every patient and family. I feel like we are all going through the process together, almost like a team sport, with the championship being a beautiful smile. It is a great bonding experience."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schmidtke "As orthodontic specialists, we not only straighten teeth, but we work to enhance your profile for a complete enhancement of your overall esthetics. We have been through three years of specialized residency training beyond dental school. This enables us to focus on your needs and deliver outstanding results often for a LOWER COST than others, who work with braces, but are not orthodontists. We treat our patients as if they are family members and will take GREAT care of you and your family!"
