in San Antonio, TX |
I was living in the valley and needed upper and lower jaw surgery. Had many consultations with different surgeons and nobody was able to perform the surgery I needed. Soon thereafter, I found out about Dr. Schmitz in San Antonio who is/was more than capable to do the surgery I needed in order to chew food normally. No words can express how grateful I am for my straight teeth and ability to chew normally thanks to Dr. Schmitz. Your teeth are in good hands with him.

I had my wisdom teeth removed and it was an easy experience. They filed my insurance claim and I just paid a copay. I will take all my kids as soon as they need their wisdom teeth out.
