Why Choose Our Practice?
When it comes to picking a dentist, we know that you have options. Personalized, gentle, comprehensive patient care is our number one priority.
Here are just a few things that make our practice unique:
Care and Commitment
From the front office to the exam room, our practice is made up of professionals who take your oral health very seriously. Using state-of-the art equipment designed with safety and efficiency in mind, we are able to offer top-notch care. As you walk through our office, you will notice that everything is clean, comfortable and thoroughly sterilized. Your safety and comfort are our priority. What our newer patients often tell us is that after looking at all of their options, they choose our office because they have not been able to find the level of service with the clinical excellence that Drs. Schmidt provide.
Honesty and Affordability
We know that the cost of care can be confusing. In addition to offering a number of in-office payment options to fit your budget, we also give you up-front cost information on your treatment ahead of time. We offer various forms of dental financing with credit available in time frames that fit your needs. As a courtesy to our patients, we submit dental claims to all insurance carriers. We always have been, and always will be, an unrestricted “out of network” provider allowing us to offer the best care possible to all of our patients. A simple phone call to your dental benefit carrier will tell you how your plan pays for “out of network” providers. Many dental benefit carriers dictate the type of treatment their clients receive by limiting the payment amount allowed to their providers. This forces the dental providers to select materials and laboratories to fit that budget. It’s just for that reason we have decided to remain out of network. We believe in using quality materials and materials best suited to an individual patient. We are an unrestricted practice and intend to keep it that way.
Health Centered Dentistry
Holistic, whole body, health centered dentistry is what we offer. When it comes to dental health we must also include whole body health. Every system in your body is connected therefore it makes sense to address issues that could be affecting dental well being. With Dr. Pamela Schmidt having her naturopathic degree and having an on site health coach, we offer simple holistic solutions to some of the typical health problems that plague society today. We are also proud to employ the use of ozone and offer safe mercury removal. The health products we stock are carefully chosen for purity, non-toxicity, and effectiveness.
Easy Access to Dental Care and Information
We know that your time is valuable to you, and that’s why we offer extended office hours on select days, dental appointment reminders, and a quick turnaround time on calls and appointment requests. We are happy to answer any questions or concerns in the office, over the phone or via email.
Comprehensive Dental Care in One Location
At Schmidt Dental, we are qualified to handle all aspects of your care, so you are always surrounded by people that you trust. If we must refer out, we promise to send you to carefully vetted colleagues who apply the same professional principles in their office that we do in ours.
We respect and understand that many patients experience dental anxiety. At our office, we do everything we can to make sure that your experience is as enjoyable as possible. By communicating clearly what you can expect during your treatment, we are often able to alleviate dental fear. We offer warm blankets, neck pillows, and one of our treatment rooms even has a massaging chair. We encourage you to bring headphones and music to listen to during your treatment. Alternatively, we have new relaxing technology called Nucalm. Nucalm is a natural and safe way to alleviate dental fear. Check out our dental anxiety and phobia page for a full description.
At our practice, you aren’t just a patient. We take an interest in you and your oral health needs. We think you’ll find a friend in your dental professional during your visit!
