Comforts and Technology
Going to the dentist doesn’t have to be scary or uncomfortable. Our dental office strives to serve you the absolute best treatments, in a relaxing, enriching environment. While you pursue your best oral health, whether it is through a restoration for Orlando area implant dentistry, you can be comfortable. We would like you to unwind with relaxing music through headphones, settle into our thermal neck pillows and refresh yourself with our hot face towels. You will find our ambiance unhurried and pleasant, while our highly qualified team truly cares for your welfare.
Advanced technology has had an amazing impact on dental treatment in recent years. In our office, we appropriately embrace these advances. We thoughtfully evaluate each as to its true benefit for our patients. Just because something is new and advertised does not mean it gives the best product. Technology is wonderful, but our main focus is the best end result for you, our patient. Dr. Schmitt believes in the skilled integration of technology with the highly trained human hand. Dentistry and dental technology are truly an art and a science!
