Accepting new patients

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

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!

My family just loves Dr. Schmidtke he is always so nice, He cares about his patients and their families.
Dr. Don, as we call him, is the friendliest Doctor that I have ever met. He listens to everything I have to say and strives to make everything perfect. The staff is super friendly, scheduling appointments is a breeze, and we are in and out in no time! I would recommend Lakeview Orthodontics to anyone and everyone.
Lakeview Orthodontics is the best place to get braces, especially after finding out Dr. Don Schmidtke is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics and everyone made me feel at ease and comfortable.
