What people are saying
"Dr Schmidt and the ladies in his office are so wonderful. I felt some welcome there. I'm someone who has bad anxiety at times and every day when my appointment came, I was actually excited to go in. The environment is relaxing, positive, friendly, enjoyable... I never had a single issue here. They treat you like royalty and take care of all of your needs. Please don't take my word for it, go check them out for yourself. You won't be disappointed."
"Very pleased with my orthodontic treatment and Dr. Andy. Angie, my treatment coordinator carefully explained the cost, payment options and the treatment plan I would receive. Everything proceeded as planned. Super staff. Very professional yet relaxed and fun environment. I would highly recommend Schmidt Orthodontics."
"Like everyone else here, I can hardly find enough good things to say about the whole Schmidt Orthodontics team - they are fantastic people and incredible professionals. I have a son who had more teeth than space and everything was taking its own sweet time to come in, fall out, and move around. Dr. Andy approached the case with patience and a eye toward keeping all of his teeth in tact. After some significant movement, he moved to SureSmile and the results are gorgeous! And in about 8 months less than I expected. Worth every minute, every tightening, every appointment, every penny! Thank you so much for your kindness. My son always enjoyed his visits with you all. : ) Can't ask for more as a parent!"
"I am absolutely thrilled with the results of my SureSmile treatment from Schmidt Orthodontics! I had the pleasure of receiving impeccable care from Dr. Andy and his team during my 14 months in braces. Everyone at Schmidt Orthodontics went above and beyond to make me feel as though I was their most important patient. Dr. Andy has a very calm and caring nature, and his expertise and knowledge were clearly evident throughout my treatment. The attention, care and open communication from his assistants and front office team was outstanding from the beginning.The office is lovely and has a very professional, yet friendly, warm and fun environment. I could not have asked for a better experience, or more beautiful teeth. I highly recommend Schmidt Orthodontics with no reservations and with great confidence."
"Our experience with Schmidt Orthodontist has been great. My daughter had her braces on for only 15 months and has a beautiful set of straight teeth now! We have had a great time getting to know Dr. Andy and his wonderful staff. They helped us find a way to make our payment plan work with our budget. My daughter loved going to her appointments because everyone was so nice. This is a very professional office that provides a high level of customer service. We look forward to Dr. Andy working on our other two children in the future."
