I've been very pleased with the service I've received at Dr. Schmidt's office. The entire staff has been very helpful, friendly and professional. They all made my procedure incredibly easy and painless. I would definitely recommend going here for dental work.
Excellent care as usual. Great staff.
Quality staff, environment, and dental equipment. I eagerly anticipate my future visits.
I have worked in the dental profession most of my life. I chose Dr. Schmidt because of his commitment to quality continuing education. I have a high level of trust for his technical ability. He and his staff all have a great chair side manor. I highly recommend Masterpiece Smiles.
Crowns are never fun but he talks you through it and makes sure you are comfy and calm. His staff is always delightful too. I totally trust him. He is very efficient and gets you through it quickly and professionally. Very kind demeanor also.
As always, Dr. Schmidt's front office staff greeted me by name as soon as I walked in. The wait was very short for a busy Monday morning. The dental assistant was courteous, professional and made me feel like I was in very capable hands. When Dr. Schmidt came to to take care of me, he was pleasant and friendly. He is a great dentist and I always feel like I receive expert care. I'm never there longer than I need to be, but never rushed off.
The dental hygienist gave me the most thorough cleaning I have ever had. I came in to do the zoom whitening treatment and almost decided that I didn't need it after the cleaning. I am glad I went through with the zoom. The results were amazing. The dental assistant that applied the barrier did a great job as I only felt a few "zings" now and again. The doctor was very kind and performed a short but detailed exam before I got started. I would highly recommend the staff here and plan to use them for all my dental needs in the future.
Dr. Schmidt was very professional and friendly. I enjoyed my visit and am happy to become an established patient!
Could not have asked for a better visit. I was a little nervous as it was my 3.5 year olds first visit to the dentist. Everyone from the receptionist to Dr. Schmidt was fabulous. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and we will definitely be returning.
Doctor was very friendly and professional. Finished the appointment early. My pain was minimal during the procedure and afterwards.
Had a great experience at this Dentist office! New to the area and have been trying to find a dentist I like for a while. I will definitely be going back to see Dr. Joseph Schmidt and his awesome staff! Jona at the Front desk is very kind and accommodating. The hygienist was friendly and did a great job! Clean, welcoming, friendly environment! Very much appreciated! Highly recommend!
I am a dental professional and chose Dr. Schmidt because of his choices in his continuing education. The experts that he has chosen to align himself with are top notch. After my first visit today, I can only say, I think I made a great choice in selecting Dr. Schmidt as my new dentist here in Austin. He and all of his team are very personable and knowledgeable. The office was very nice and well maintained. I feel very confident about continuing my relationship with Masterpiece Smiles.
My search appears to be over when it comes to the dental services rendered by Dr. Schmidt and Team! I've been very please thus far. The professional/friendly staff and makes each visit a breeze..
Dr. Schmidt has been my dentist for over 20 years. His expertise, integrity & genuine compassion has earned him the title of "My Dentist For Life". Thank you, Dr Schmidt for 20 years of wonderful compliments.
Unfortunately someone dropped the ball and I had to wait several weeks longer than I needed to with an exposed root for a temp cap on my back tooth. I was told they were checking on the cap repeatedly and then finally that it had been ready and unsure why it didn't get shipped. The experience was not good and left a lasting impression on me.
Dr. Schmidt is one of the best dentists I have ever known. I have been a patient for 25 years.
He is quite personable and very competent.
It was quick and as always he is very forthcoming about answering all my questions and extremely pleasant and encouraging. The staff is very helpful as well.
