Dr. Ron Schmidt
Dr. Ron Schmidt has been practicing dentistry for over 28 years. Upon graduating from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 1984, he opened his private practice and taught at the dental school for 6 years. His zeal for patient care is evident by the countless hours he spends on continuing education, keeping up with the latest advancements in dentistry and technology to give his patients the best care available. He has also completed extensive training in implant dentistry, full mouth reconstruction, Invisalign orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry. He prides himself on giving his patients the same attention to detail and quality, whether it’s a simple filling or a more complex full mouth reconstruction. Dr Schmidt develops close relationships with patients, treating them as if they were members of his own family.
In addition to Dr. Ron's full time practice in Menomonee Falls, WI, he also practices part time at Dental Studio 101 in Scottsdale, AZ.
Along with his passion for dentistry, Dr. Schmidt's passion for motorcycles is evident throughout his office. Some patient's have nicknamed the office the "Harley Museum West." So if you don't find Dr. Ron in his office working with a patient to create their perfect smile, you might see him on his Harley riding through the southeastern Wisconsin countryside.
