"Needed to have a jaw teeth pulled, had been to another dentist, he gave me 9 shots and couldn't deaden tooth,I was already scared and this didn't help my situation. Returned back to my old dentist, and met Dr.Schmidt, he gave me some personal time to calm my nerves, talking about out families, explained what was going to happen and I questioned the scary questions,"the in case the teeth break or things go wrong". He assured me it was gonna be okay. I was still tensed and still scared, the first two shots didn't do much as hurt, though I was so tensed, I could have squeezed a golf ball into a basketball. Dr. Came back minutes later check my teeth for tender spots not numb yet, just a little tweeking and a few minutes later it was time to pull my teeth, with the laughing gas, and cracked nerves, all I felt was a little pressure, heard a small crack and the whole ordeal was over. I could have had a ?? attack I was that tensed and wound up, it was all for nothing, my experience with Dr. Schmidt was MARVELOUS, I have already recommended my family and friends, good dentist are like looking for a needle in a haystack, when you find one Spread the word."- B.W. / Google / Jul 30, 2018
