Dr explained all my treatment options and cost involved
You could tell he is a get the job done type of guy, pretty fast in and out on to the next one...
felt very good about this Dentist
I was very nervous but the dentist and his assistant made me laugh and feel much better.
First time seeing this dentist. He hit me in the shoulder which I thought was a little inappropriate and it hurt a bit. He also seemed like he was having a bad day because he was sort of short with me--so was the gray-haired woman who first helped me. Not Liz. She was great.
The dentist is superb -- Ive seen him before for a similar procedure. He did a great job both times.
This was the first time I saw this Dentist, he made it clear he does extractions and didnt know anything about dental outside of that area, which made me a little uncomfortable.
This Dr. Schmidt in Appleton was very caring and concerned about my heart & age.
Dr. Schmidt is excellent.
this is not my first visit with him and hes always top of his game! excellent surgeon!
This was an amazing, because Im terrified of fillings and the like, and they were very understanding of that and made sure I knew exactly what was going on.
The doctor was absolutely amazing. He was relatable, kinds, encouraged questions and concerns to be addressed, quick, professional. During the surgery his assistant Kathy went above and beyond to make the patient feel comfortable and relaxed, it was an amazingly comfortably surgery experience.
he is awesome
very informative and made sure my questions were answered and very attentive.
Dr. Schmidt made me feel at ease and was wonderful!
Very nice personality and humor. He does his job well.
Very professional and people orintented with the common person for understanding the issues about your teeth.
this dentist has terrible bedside manner. He was rude and short with me when I asked questions. He made me feel dumb for asking my questions. He was rough and caused pain to my child during his brief exam. He tried to tell me they didnt have a 3D X-ray on my child on file when I knew he had it done there. (eventually they found it). If we did not have the supplemental plan with Dental Associates saving us money on the procedure I would have went to another dentist instead after this interaction. I am concerned about how he will treat my son the day of his procedure.
I have never had such a good experience with a dentist ever. Im totally pleased with the care I received
he had a good experience, considering he is paranoid about going to the dentist
Dr. made me feel comfortable and at ease about surgery.
Very short with us. Seemed irritated with questions I had. Never smiled, or was even remotely friendly. Im sure he does great work, but really needs to be approachable to every patient...and their parents.
He was amazing. Kept making sure I was okay the whole time.
I was so scared and it was just shrugged off. I felt the procedure and the dentist didnt believe me. I left feeling everything. It was very traumatizing.
Dr Schmidt and his staff are amazing!!
I really appreciated the staff telling me about tea bags to help stop bleeding. they sent me home with 3 bags which I did need. also called oncall dentist and was advised how to continue to control bleeding.
Not very friendly Talked behind my back not to my face
Dr. Schmidt took the time to explain procedure. Never appeared rushed and actually fit me that day to have it.
Had three teeth pulled. in and out in under a hour. Next day little discomfort. Excellent work. Dental surgical assistant very attentive and knowledgeable.
Pleased with all of the staff!
wrong tooth pulled
very friendly and warm and caring.
first time I had ever seen Dr. Schmidt and he made me feel that I was in good hands.
Again no probems
I like the wording Rather than pull your tooth he said we will wiggle it out. Means the same but excellent wording using wiggle
Felt very comfortable w/dentist & asst.
all good, no complaints, plus all the other staff. their great
No concerns! I am a Customer Service Rep for a local insurance company & expect a lot of from others that are in the same career.....Both assistant & dentist were EXCELLENT.
professional and relaxed environment
He was in and out with no real discussion. Just got the job done
Seemed like dentist just wanted to get me in and out. Asked if I could go closer to home for wisdom teeth removal and he very rudely asked why are you even here then?
This was a short follow up from wisdom teeth only.
dr.schmidt is great.
it might be a better idea to explain care and what to expect after teeth extraction before the surgery as I didnt comprehend anything after anesthesia.
Dr. Schmidt was very kind. He helped ease my pain in a gentle and effective way. He even tried to bring a smile to my face knowing the discomfort I was feeling!
I was presented with only one treatment option. When I asked about any other treatments I was told that I wouldnt be happy with the (one) other option . I have taking very good care of my teeth and had a failing root canal tooth pulled this summer. My root canal was the result of a fractured jaw that happened in a car accident when I was 14. I asked about a partial or implant for another alternative treatment plan. I was told I would forget about having a parcial and bite into an apple or something. I repeated I was not in any way shape or form comfortable with the option (only one offered to me) they were pushing. I was very clear that I was not on board with them pulling two more (healthy teeth), and grinding down two more teeth to make a bridge. To me this seems overkill. I was very clear that I didnt agree with affecting 4 teeth to fix pulling one bad tooth. I explained to them that I was very concerned about removing more heathy teeth. I likened if to if I had a infected hand they were going to remove it at the elbow, no wait better yet remove it at the shoulder to make sure they got it all! And I said that very same thing to them to stress that I was not comfortable with the option they wanted to do. I cried the whole way home. the next day I contacted another dentist that gave me other options for bridges and for implants. I am looking into a second option as of now. Staff and everyone involved has been respectful and professional. I just would like to consider ALL treatment plans.
Dentist was straight forward. He is retired military like me and I understand the language he uses.
Dr Schmidt is thorough, professional and personable.
I loved Dr. Schmidt!! Made me feel so comfortable and did a great job!!
My wisdom teeth were extracted on 6/26/17. That evening on his way home, Dr. Schmidt gave me a house call in order to check on my wounds. This kind gesture greatly reassured me that I was healing properly.
excellent top to bottom
Dr. Paul Schmidt = excellent!
Ok. provider just introduced himself and walked out.
told me not to make noise when I felt the pain, I couldn't help that, it hurt
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.
Dr Schmidt did an excellent job explaining my procedure. young lady helping with insurance papers also very good.
He put me at ease with a joke.
Went exactly as planned.
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."
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
never saw dentist before procedure. Only saw him in front office and said he was all done. No other comments.
I have always appreciated his friendlyness and open communication.
he didn't say much I just had a tooth pulled
He was very friendly and would have spent even more time with us if we had any questions.
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.
did not like my 1st dentist that is why I went away for awhile do like my new dentist
He is very "down to earth."
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.
he put me at ease, I was very nervous about the procedure.
Dr. Paul Schmidt was excellent, his demeanor put my daughter at ease right away ( and mine).
De Schmidt was very professional and fast didn't feel a thing getting my tooth out.
Dr. Schmidt did an excellent job! I'm very happy with the results of my procedure, so far.
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.
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.
Dr Smith is very knowledgeable
First time with Dr. Schmidt, felt very comfortable with him and his staff.
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.
doctor seemed to be in a hurry
Very nice dentist
Felt a bit rushed.
Dr Schmidt is very personable and friendly and commands a relaxing aire of 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.
dentist was above excellent
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.
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
I thought he was wonderful
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.
I highly recommend and prefer Dr. Schmidt when a tooth needs to be pulled.
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!
he made sure I was comfortable and tried to make getting a tooth pulled fun, and oddly enough he made it less Scarry
BOTH DENTISTS WERE PROS, I LIKE BOTH OF THEM I JUST HATE TO GO TO THE DENTIST
went to doctor with oldest son, and had no problems so came to him with second for wisdom teeth removal too
dentist never talked to me as a parent before or after an oral surgery. son said his bed side manner was poor. commented how he didn't have good veins
DONE BEFORE I EVEN REALIZED IT.
Good experience nice facilities
gave options, knowledgeable of situation
very informational from the doctor
The dentist seemed in a hurry and was not gentle during the extraction. He seemed to doubt that I was still in pain after 3 injections for numbing.
took time to explain everything so we knew what to expect
although i waited long Dr. was pleasant one.
Felt very confident by the knowledge of the doctor and his staff.
A+ for Dr. Schmidt!
Dr. Konopka is a wonderful dentist. Very caring.
i had complete confidence in dr schmidt and the appointment i was coming in for
Very friendly and informative.
dr.schmidt made me feel very comfortable and i do not like dentist he made me feel very at ease
Quick check up to see if I am healing.
Dentist respected my need for more numbing once I felt pain.
not personable. . felt like just a number.
Dentist was great & very reassuring
Dr. Schmidt could not have been more thorough.
Dr was not able to review X-ray in time to inform us of a change in treatment
Dr. Schmidt is very pleasant with a great sense of humor and compassion that puts patients at ease.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
Not a good listening to patient. Tends to talk about tangential topics and unrelated to treatment personal opinions. This makes me comfortable.
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!!!
he was great!
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.
explained procedures relative to my age, budget and appearance
Dr. Schmidt was thorough and looked up information for my health & well being!
I did not feel I received an adequate exam for the dentist to determine if I was a candidate for an implant
Dr. Lang is gentle, soft spoken, fine dentist.
The dentist took the time necessary to explain the procedure thoroughly.
Explained everything very well, even showed me my ex-rays and explained what we could do, or not do.
Good, considering it was two teeth extractions.
Very quick and easy procedure
Very friendly. Examined results of previous work, and indicated everything looks good.
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.
Dr. Schmidt was amazing. He was very personable and made me feel informed and comfortable.
Again, it went well, greatest discomfort was the shot near the nerve (necessary!) but all was done professionally, minimal discomfort, healing well.
Absolutely no follow up
My follow up appointment, I was in extreme pain and the doctor didn't seem to really care. The actual surgery was excellent, though.
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.
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.
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.
I would definitely refer people to Dr. Schmidt and/or Dental Associates (and have done so in the past).
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.
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.
I did not feel real comfortable with Dr. Schmidt. I felt he was a bit blunt and did not show compassion.
It was very good. I had oral surgery and was very scared but it was a wonderful painless experience. Everyone made it very pleasant
Dr. Schmidt has a most unusual method for the evaluation process.
i had a very good experience.
Dr. Paul Schmidt mad my daughter feel relaxed, she is not worried about having her wisdom teeth taken out.
Dr. Schmidt was very helpful in describing my upcoming appointment.
The least painful tooth extraction i have ever had.
Everything went well.
Dr. Schmidt does a great job and makes seeing him very easy because I know he is very good at what he does.
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.
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!!
The staff was very friendly and very helpful.
Very 'people' friendly dr.
Dental Associates continues to impress me with modern facilities, knowledgeable doctors, and helpful/friendly staff. Service is always outstanding!!
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.
Enjoyed the cheerfulness of the staff.
Very well run facility. Good management.
Very thoughtful competent. Friendly & relaxed!
Very helpful painless and easy
DENTIST DID NOT EXPLAIN ALTERNATIVES AND PROCEDURES
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.
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!
I would rate all a six if I could.
Dr. Schmidt came recommended to me by a former dentist office, ensures my decisions to stay with DA.
Awesome bedside manner!
Great people. Very friendly they all make you feel comfortable and welcome!
I thought the receptionist were not professional talking about clients to each other for all of us waiting to hear. I know its wide open therefore unless you close it in they should not discuss patients out loud.
Great very great.
We are beyond very happy. Well beyond.
Very good experience.
no bad experience and was great
Dr. Schmidt is wonderful.
I was very impressed the way things went.
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.
4 days later I am in worse pain then ever, cannot open my mouth, cannot eat.
They were very thorough and answered any questions I had.
He expressed positive thinking for my concerns about my child's procedure... he answered all my questions.
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.
Dr. Schmidt made my daughter feel comfortable through jokes and silly comments.
Dr. Schmidt had bad bedside manners, seemed very rushed and not very caring. I will NEVER go to him again.
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.
Very friendly - especially with teenage children - Kids liked him a lot. Let us know what to expect.
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
Dr.Schmidt was friendly and made the patient relaxed.
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
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.
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.
Did not feel like this dentist acted in a very professional manner at times.
I feel like he was slurring words together and I couldn't understand. However, that's not a problem. He was a good dentist.
Not offered any options, and neither dentist explained WHY an extraction was necessary.
The exam and biopsy went well.
very good with Adam
Not satisfied with time and explanation of procedures to be done
Dr. Schmidt made me feel very comfortable he has great bedside manners.
So far everything is very satisfied
He asked how and what I was feeling. He made sure I was comfortable enough before continuing.
Very professional & personal.
My only complaint is that Dr. Schmidt talks a lot and very fast so it is hard to digest his advice/knowledge.
His listening skills are zero. His language is fine. His communication skills very poor.
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.
Dentist was great, it was the length of time to see him that wasn't right.
An excellent experience.
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.
I was referred to Dr. Schmidt by my primary dentist. Excellent.
I had a good experience with my wisdom teeth surgery.
Dr. Schmidt is fantastic!
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.
It only hurt when he injected by gums & I expected that!
25 to 30 minutes to pull 17 teeth a little rough.
