Our professional team is committed to excellence, providing the highest standards of dental work and materials for your entire family in a pleasant and comfortable environment, always remembering that you, the patient, are the reason for being here.
Our entire team is educated and trained to use state-of-the-art procedures and technology, and our dental assistants are fully licensed. Our front office staff is highly skilled in insurance matters and will endeavor to address your needs in all areas concerning your treatment.
We believe in the importance of patient education and promise to speak candidly about your treatment options and progress. Intraoral pictures of your teeth are taken, and your needs are thoroughly reviewed with you.
Several options will be reviewed, so your financial situation will be considered as well. Not everyone can afford the Lamborghini treatment plan, but restoring your smile and chewing ability can be accomplished with a treatment plan you will be comfortable with. We can stage out your treatment so you can smile and eat while going through the process of completing your treatment plan.
Many dental colleagues, hospital ERs, and medical offices from pediatric to plastic surgery to oncology have referred difficult cases of all ages (from 6 months to 103 years). Some were phobic children and adults looking for an alternative to sedation or hospitalizing for their needed dental work. Others just needed to find an office that would understand them.
If sedation is necessary for a child or adult, we can block out time in Health Park Hospitals operating room dental suite and perform any needed dental care under the sedative supervision of a hospital anesthesiologist. Dr. Schwartz has been on staff at all of Lee Memorial Health Care Hospitals for over 20 years.
Ive been fortunate enough to run a thriving family dental practice in Fort Myers, FL since 1992. During that time, Ive had the privilege of working with families that are the best clients a dentist could ask for. My greatest reward continues to be watching my patients grow older with an attractive, healthy smile and absolutely no dental fear.
I began my career at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, earning a Bachelor in Science and subsequent Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) and a minor in periodontics from the University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. I was proud of making the Deans list all four years, set a school record for operative dentistry and periodontal work, including surgeries. I am so honored that I was a student of that outstanding school and its programs. The training and education given have allowed me to live up to my belief of Committed to Excellence all these years.
In the beginning, our office was small, about 1500 sq. ft. and was originally owned by a pediatrics dentist (kids-only). We took over in August 1992, the day of Hurricane Andrew, and converted it to a full family Dental office, seeing patients of all ages. Over the years, we have made several house calls and even a gas station call on the way out of town. Our clients have my direct cell phone, and we are available to them 24/7. Being able to help someone with answering a question can make all the difference with peace of mind and potentially avoid a problem.
In 2000 we started the process of designing a new space, and in 2003 we built this wonderful and modern office building with a touch of artistry and uniqueness. The building won 3 awards for Best Unbuilt in 2003, Best Built-in 2005, and the Best Medical/Dental Professional building statewide in 2006. Building through two hurricanes and a cement shortage, we occupied in June 2005 and planned to be here until I cant pick up a toothbrush anymore.
Our patients understand that pre-planning is critical in dentistry. Being able to see the end through each step from the beginning is very important in order to restore a patients dentition and oral health. We also use only the finest materials and labs in the United States. We do not send out our work to China. We also stand behind our work. Crowns have an offer of a 7-year warranty and free lifetime maintenance on sealants.
