Dental Associates Patient May 30, 2017
told me not to make noise when I felt the pain, I couldn't help that, it hurt

Dental Associates Patient May 28, 2017
Dr. Knapp explained what I need to take care of first in order to get good results. He expressed concerned for things I was unaware of as it relates to my treatment. I even remembered asking him if he did not think it was too many of my teeth he was taking away from me. He showed and explained why the teeth needed to be extracted. Now that I have completed the extraction I can feel the extra space created by it. I was not using those teeth at all they we just crowding my mouth and affecting my dental hygiene. Thank you Dr. Knapp I trust your judgement.

Dental Associates Patient May 22, 2017
Dr Schmidt did an excellent job explaining my procedure. young lady helping with insurance papers also very good.

Dental Associates Patient May 14, 2017
He put me at ease with a joke.

Dental Associates Patient May 07, 2017
good

Dental Associates Patient May 07, 2017
Went exactly as planned.

Dental Associates Patient May 05, 2017
Dr Schmidt seems rushed every time I was in to see him for extraction and treatments. He has a great personality but seems so very rushed and "on to the next one."

Dental Associates Patient April 21, 2017
bad experience surgeon said I can't extract tooth as you are on actenol for osteoporosis He didn't look in my mouth previous exrays from March 17 did not show the change as my filling and inner tooth had since fallen out

Dental Associates Patient April 21, 2017
never saw dentist before procedure. Only saw him in front office and said he was all done. No other comments.

Dental Associates Patient April 16, 2017
I have always appreciated his friendlyness and open communication.

Dental Associates Patient April 09, 2017
he didn't say much I just had a tooth pulled

Dental Associates Patient April 04, 2017
He was very friendly and would have spent even more time with us if we had any questions.

Dental Associates Patient March 29, 2017
He seemed like he was trying to get through his information as fast as possible... he did not let us stop him to ask questions. It came across like he wasn't concerned about our concerns.

Dental Associates Patient March 27, 2017
did not like my 1st dentist that is why I went away for awhile do like my new dentist

Dental Associates Patient February 21, 2017
He is very "down to earth."

Dental Associates Patient February 19, 2017
good

Dental Associates Patient February 18, 2017
Condescending attitude. Rushed through appointment. "Bedside manner" pretty poor overall. Door was open during exam with ladies talking loudly in the hallway. Could hardly hear what the dentist had to say.

Dental Associates Patient February 13, 2017
he put me at ease, I was very nervous about the procedure.

Dental Associates Patient February 05, 2017

Dr. Schmidt did an excellent job! I'm very happy with the results of my procedure, so far.

Dental Associates Patient December 23, 2016
Dr Schmidt never talked to me after the wisdom teeth were pulled. I would haved liked to hear how it went since since I had to sit in the waiting room.

Dental Associates Patient December 14, 2016
Dr. Schmidt was up-front and honest about the long timeframe involved with the implant. I appreciated that. A different consultation with a different oral surgeon in Appleton just told me what he thought I wanted to hear.

Dental Associates Patient December 11, 2016
Dr Smith is very knowledgeable

Dental Associates Patient December 11, 2016
First time with Dr. Schmidt, felt very comfortable with him and his staff.

Dental Associates Patient December 06, 2016
I am very pleased with Dr. Schmidt and I am glad he has been treating me. I have felt I was in good hands and not once lost confidence. He has a unique way of connecting with you and also gets the job done expediently and displays complete confidence.

he made me feel so comfortable and at ease unlike the other surgeon I had. he truly made a traumatic experience for me and calmed me down.

Dental Associates Patient October 18, 2016
dentist was above excellent

Dental Associates Patient October 06, 2016
I was very unimpressed with this dr. He didn't so much as say hello when he walked in or introduce himself to me or my daughter. Very short and uncaring. My daughter was uncomfortable because the light was shining in her face and instead of maybe offering sunglasses like many dentists do or showing any sort of care, he said sharply for her to tip her head back. He looked at the problem for a couple seconds, really looked like he hardly glanced. I have no interest in this dr. caring for my child, especially in a surgical setting.

Dental Associates Patient September 23, 2016
Staff was very prompt - first appointment, I was actually the one late- staff did see me anyway and was very polite. It was my fault - not theirs- it will not happen again - sorry

Dental Associates Patient September 18, 2016
I thought he was wonderful

Dental Associates Patient September 15, 2016
Dr. Schmidt was up-front and honest about the long time frame involved with the implant. I appreciated that. A different consultation with a different oral surgeon in Appleton just told me what he thought I wanted to hear.

Dental Associates Patient August 21, 2016
I highly recommend and prefer Dr. Schmidt when a tooth needs to be pulled.

Dental Associates Patient August 15, 2016
I have had great results with Dr. Schmidt. I respect his experience and recommendations and I feel confident and comfortable. I like his friendliness and conversation. A good guy!

Dental Associates Patient August 14, 2016
he made sure I was comfortable and tried to make getting a tooth pulled fun, and oddly enough he made it less Scarry

Dental Associates Patient August 02, 2016
BOTH DENTISTS WERE PROS, I LIKE BOTH OF THEM I JUST HATE TO GO TO THE DENTIST

Dental Associates Patient July 20, 2016
went to doctor with oldest son, and had no problems so came to him with second for wisdom teeth removal too

Dental Associates Patient July 17, 2016

DONE BEFORE I EVEN REALIZED IT.

Dental Associates Patient May 23, 2016

Dental Associates Patient May 23, 2016

Dental Associates Patient May 16, 2016
great

Dental Associates Patient May 11, 2016
took time to explain everything so we knew what to expect

Dental Associates Patient December 30, 2015

Dental Associates Patient December 13, 2015
Dr. Schmidt could not have been more thorough.

Dental Associates Patient November 13, 2015
Dr was not able to review X-ray in time to inform us of a change in treatment

Dental Associates Patient November 03, 2015
Dr. Schmidt is very pleasant with a great sense of humor and compassion that puts patients at ease.

Dental Associates Patient October 27, 2015
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK

Dental Associates Patient October 21, 2015
Not a good listening to patient. Tends to talk about tangential topics and unrelated to treatment personal opinions. This makes me comfortable.

Dental Associates Patient September 30, 2015
It took me 30 years to have confidence in a dentist after seeing Dr. Paul Schmidt I will be DEAD before I ever trust a dentist again!!!

Dental Associates Patient September 13, 2015
he was great!

Dental Associates Patient August 21, 2015
The dentist was very nice, polite. I just felt a little rushed at the post-op appointments and had questions that went unanswered. The surgery itself was brief, quick, and to the point- which was good.

Dental Associates Patient August 10, 2015
Great.

Dental Associates Patient July 29, 2015
explained procedures relative to my age, budget and appearance

Dental Associates Patient July 28, 2015
top notch

Dental Associates Patient July 27, 2015
Dr. Schmidt was thorough and looked up information for my health & well being!

Dental Associates Patient July 23, 2015
I did not feel I received an adequate exam for the dentist to determine if I was a candidate for an implant

Dental Associates Patient June 29, 2015
Dr. Lang is gentle, soft spoken, fine dentist.

Dental Associates Patient June 26, 2015
very good

Dental Associates Patient May 29, 2015
The dentist took the time necessary to explain the procedure thoroughly.

Dental Associates Patient May 27, 2015
good

Dental Associates Patient May 08, 2015
Explained everything very well, even showed me my ex-rays and explained what we could do, or not do.

Dental Associates Patient April 02, 2015
Good, considering it was two teeth extractions.

Dental Associates Patient March 23, 2015
Very quick and easy procedure

Dental Associates Patient March 09, 2015
Very friendly. Examined results of previous work, and indicated everything looks good.

Dental Associates Patient January 31, 2015
felt like the dentist was there to collect a check. he was checked out and didnt make much eye contact. this appointment could have been a 5 min conversation on the phone. Paying a consult fee for this appoinment felt like robbery it was like adding insult ti injury. It was a waste of time.

Dental Associates Patient January 23, 2015
Dr. Schmidt was amazing. He was very personable and made me feel informed and comfortable.

Dental Associates Patient January 19, 2015
Thumbs up!

Dental Associates Patient January 12, 2015
Again, it went well, greatest discomfort was the shot near the nerve (necessary!) but all was done professionally, minimal discomfort, healing well.

Dental Associates Patient January 05, 2015
Absolutely no follow up

Dental Associates Patient December 29, 2014
My follow up appointment, I was in extreme pain and the doctor didn't seem to really care. The actual surgery was excellent, though.

Dental Associates Patient December 15, 2014
Thank you!

Dental Associates Patient December 05, 2014
Very bad bed side manors. Also very short don't feel like an questions were answered spent more time in waiting room than talking to anyone.

Dental Associates Patient November 30, 2014
Dr. Schmidt and his immediate staff were very friendly and answered every question I had. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Schmidt the first time I met him. I was considering a dental implant and Dr. Schmidt answered all my questions. He told me what other options I had in case a dental implant would not work for me. He encouraged me to call him if any other questions occurred to me after I left. On each visit to his office I was made to feel very welcome and every procedure done went well. I was very pleased and would most definitely recommend Dr. Schmidt and his staff to anyone who is considering having the same procedure done.

Dental Associates Patient November 30, 2014
Again, I felt very comfortable in Dr. Schmidt's care. His staff was warm and friendly and Dr. Schmidt took the time to answer any questions I had, saying he was glad I was asking questions.

Dental Associates Patient November 30, 2014
I would definitely refer people to Dr. Schmidt and/or Dental Associates (and have done so in the past).

Dental Associates Patient November 30, 2014
During my last visit Dr. Schmidt stopped mid procedure and asked if I was okay. I assured him I was and he told me to let him know if anything changed.

Dental Associates Patient November 30, 2014
Everyone I dealt with were very friendly and professional, from the front desk to the person taking x-rays to Dr. Schmidt and his immediate staff. I actually looked forward to going to the dentist for once.

Dental Associates Patient November 25, 2014
all good

Dental Associates Patient November 17, 2014
I did not feel real comfortable with Dr. Schmidt. I felt he was a bit blunt and did not show compassion.

Dental Associates Patient November 16, 2014
It was very good. I had oral surgery and was very scared but it was a wonderful painless experience. Everyone made it very pleasant

Dental Associates Patient October 31, 2014
Dr. Schmidt has a most unusual method for the evaluation process.

Dental Associates Patient October 25, 2014
i had a very good experience.

Dental Associates Patient October 21, 2014
Dr. Paul Schmidt mad my daughter feel relaxed, she is not worried about having her wisdom teeth taken out.

Dental Associates Patient October 16, 2014
Dr. Schmidt was very helpful in describing my upcoming appointment.

Dental Associates Patient October 12, 2014
The least painful tooth extraction i have ever had.

Dental Associates Patient August 03, 2014
nice guy

Dental Associates Patient July 31, 2014
Everything went well.

Dental Associates Patient July 31, 2014
Dr. Schmidt does a great job and makes seeing him very easy because I know he is very good at what he does.

Dental Associates Patient July 29, 2014
He was fast and said I needed further tests it could be anything from a simple immune system problem to cancer but I wold need further tests. Then told me to schedule a biopsy.

Dental Associates Patient July 28, 2014
excellent

Dental Associates Patient July 23, 2014
Dr. Schmidt is a great oral surgeon. Has always been concerned for my well being. Always been quick to see me in emergencies. His team is just as great!!

Dental Associates Patient July 22, 2014
Very good.

Dental Associates Patient July 21, 2014
The staff was very friendly and very helpful.

Dental Associates Patient July 21, 2014
Very 'people' friendly dr.

Dental Associates Patient July 21, 2014
Dental Associates continues to impress me with modern facilities, knowledgeable doctors, and helpful/friendly staff. Service is always outstanding!!

Dental Associates Patient June 23, 2014
There were several weeks between when the appointment was scheduled and when it occurred. When we saw the oral surgeon, he only had a single view and had not viewed the complete CT scan, so could not really give us much information at all, so the appointment was a waste of time. He would not give me any alternatives to a biopsy, or tell me anything that he might find other than an air cyst which would resolve itself on its own. They then proceeded to have me meet with a financial person to discuss payment for a biopsy when we didn't even know if it would be needed.

Dental Associates Patient June 12, 2014
Enjoyed the cheerfulness of the staff.

Dental Associates Patient June 12, 2014
Good organization.

Dental Associates Patient June 12, 2014
Very well run facility. Good management.

Dental Associates Patient June 12, 2014
Very thoughtful competent. Friendly & relaxed!

Dental Associates Patient June 09, 2014
Very helpful painless and easy

Dental Associates Patient June 09, 2014
DENTIST DID NOT EXPLAIN ALTERNATIVES AND PROCEDURES

Dental Associates Patient May 29, 2014
Good.

Dental Associates Patient May 27, 2014
horrible experience. i felt discomfort throughput my entire procedure. not only discomfort just flat out pain. and i cant get ahold of anybody to talk about my pain im atill haveing after the procedure.

Dental Associates Patient May 20, 2014
Dentist and assistant were very helpful throughout whole procedure. Talked me through everything the entire time to let me know what was happening and to calm me down. I was very pleased with how fast the procedure went and how well they treated me. I was scared coming into the surgery but during it i realized I had nothing to worry about. Very nice people and they knew what they were doing and were very professional about it!

Dental Associates Patient May 14, 2014
I would rate all a six if I could.

Dental Associates Patient May 11, 2014
excellent experience

Dental Associates Patient May 05, 2014
Excellent dentist.

Dental Associates Patient March 31, 2014
Dr. Schmidt came recommended to me by a former dentist office, ensures my decisions to stay with DA.

Dental Associates Patient March 30, 2014
Awesome bedside manner!

Dental Associates Patient February 19, 2014
Great very great.

Dental Associates Patient February 10, 2014
We are beyond very happy. Well beyond.

Dental Associates Patient January 30, 2014
Very good experience.

Dental Associates Patient January 27, 2014
no bad experience and was great

Dental Associates Patient January 24, 2014
Dr. Schmidt is wonderful.

Dental Associates Patient January 07, 2014
I was very impressed the way things went.

Dental Associates Patient January 06, 2014
Dr. Schmidt asked me several times if I had any questions or concerns about the procedure he was performing and I felt very comfortable asking him questions.

Dental Associates Patient December 16, 2013
4 days later I am in worse pain then ever, cannot open my mouth, cannot eat.

Dental Associates Patient December 13, 2013
They were very thorough and answered any questions I had.

Dental Associates Patient December 02, 2013
He expressed positive thinking for my concerns about my child's procedure... he answered all my questions.

Dental Associates Patient November 05, 2013
He was very caring. I did not even feel the needle. That is the best part. He is always happy too when I am there. I would recommend him again. I will spread the word.

Dental Associates Patient October 28, 2013
Dr. Schmidt made my daughter feel comfortable through jokes and silly comments.

Dental Associates Patient October 28, 2013
Dr. Schmidt had bad bedside manners, seemed very rushed and not very caring. I will NEVER go to him again.

Dental Associates Patient October 21, 2013
Was very happy how Dr. Smith handled something he wasn't really prepared for, as I think I was a total surprise for him, as I was just squeezed in from having come in on an emergency from a few days earlier.

Dental Associates Patient September 26, 2013
Very friendly - especially with teenage children - Kids liked him a lot. Let us know what to expect.

Dental Associates Patient September 06, 2013
Dr. Schmidt is an extremely competent and compassionate dentist. It made the entire extraction/implant procedure almost enjoyable... Always asked if I had any questions, answered them thoroughly and understandably and encouraged me to call if I had other questions

Dental Associates Patient July 25, 2013
Dr.Schmidt was friendly and made the patient relaxed.

Dental Associates Patient July 25, 2013
I really like Dr. Schmidt. I have seen numerous dentists and have had a lot of work done. I felt like he took every possible direction he could to make my experience a good one even though I was not going to enjoy my visit no matter what happened

Dental Associates Patient June 17, 2013
After a failed root canal attempt which was a very bad experience at your Green Bay location, I was anxious and in pain. Dr. Schmidt fit me into an already busy schedule and performed the extraction procedure quickly, efficiently and painlessly.

Dental Associates Patient June 10, 2013
Dentist appeared knowledgeable but it felt a bit routine and scripted- he quickly explained everything but did address questions well. I was shocked that we were in there only about 10 minutes and the bill was $96 uncovered by insurance.

Dental Associates Patient June 10, 2013
Did not feel like this dentist acted in a very professional manner at times.

Dental Associates Patient April 23, 2013
I feel like he was slurring words together and I couldn't understand. However, that's not a problem. He was a good dentist.

Dental Associates Patient April 08, 2013
Not offered any options, and neither dentist explained WHY an extraction was necessary.

Dental Associates Patient April 01, 2013
The exam and biopsy went well.

Dental Associates Patient March 18, 2013
Wonderful interaction!

Dental Associates Patient February 04, 2013
very good with Adam

Dental Associates Patient January 29, 2013
Not satisfied with time and explanation of procedures to be done

Dental Associates Patient January 24, 2013
Dr. Schmidt made me feel very comfortable he has great bedside manners.

Dental Associates Patient January 21, 2013
So far everything is very satisfied

Dental Associates Patient January 20, 2013
He asked how and what I was feeling. He made sure I was comfortable enough before continuing.

Dental Associates Patient January 15, 2013
Very professional & personal.

Dental Associates Patient December 28, 2012
My only complaint is that Dr. Schmidt talks a lot and very fast so it is hard to digest his advice/knowledge.

Dental Associates Patient December 27, 2012
His listening skills are zero. His language is fine. His communication skills very poor.

Dental Associates Patient December 21, 2012
I did note that when Paul Schmidt, D.D.S. had ask me a question when working on my teeth had stopped to let me answer. I just wish he would of made a preplan on how would communicate LOL.

Dental Associates Patient December 20, 2012
Dentist was great, it was the length of time to see him that wasn't right.

Dental Associates Patient December 19, 2012
An excellent experience.

Dental Associates Patient December 19, 2012
Went to two Dental Ass, one in Appleton, then went to Fondulas which was closer, the doctor I had was very nice. Had two tooth pulled and he was quick about it. Will go back.

Dental Associates Patient December 14, 2012
I was referred to Dr. Schmidt by my primary dentist. Excellent.

Dental Associates Patient December 13, 2012
I had a good experience with my wisdom teeth surgery.

Dental Associates Patient November 21, 2012
Dr. Schmidt is fantastic!

Dental Associates Patient November 14, 2012
I was very apprehensive to have a wisdom tooth pulled, Dr. Schmidt and his assistant were very in tuned to my worries and put me at ease. Dr. Schmidt was very personable and did an excellent job.

Dental Associates Patient November 02, 2012
All good.

Dental Associates Patient October 26, 2012
It only hurt when he injected by gums & I expected that!

Dental Associates Patient October 22, 2012
25 to 30 minutes to pull 17 teeth a little rough.

Dental Associates Patient October 16, 2012
Good experience.
