“As an adult patient, making the choice to seek orthodontic treatment was not an easy one. Over time, I had developed a crossbite that I know would not correct itself and would only worsen with time, which is what lead me to begin my search for an orthodontist. I visited three orthodontic providers, prior to being referred to Parks & Schmit by an acquaintance. By the time I visited with Dr. Schmit during my initial consult, I was fairly well versed in the various types of treatments that may be needed to fix a crossbite, given my previous consults. During my initial consult, Dr. Schmit and his staff listened intently to my concerns and constructed a personalized treatment that was aggressive, yet not invasive to my everyday lifestyle. I knew immediately following my consult that Parks & Schmit was the right place for me and signed on immediately during that initial consult; no other consult had provided the level of professionalism and personalization that Dr. Schmit’s did. During my 18 months of treatment, I could not have been more pleased with the treatment that was provided by Dr. Schmit and his amazing staff.

“I now have an amazing, beautiful smile and have gained friendships that I look forward to continuing.”

— Stacie S.


“My time spent at Parks & Schmit Orthodontics was more than enjoyable! Everyone was always so nice and happy when I went in there. During my appointment, they would talk to me about my life and I loved keeping them updated every three months. At the end of the visit, they would always give me extra Chap Stick because they know how much I love theirs. I walked out of their office happy and smiling after every visit. Because of Parks & Schmit, I can smile confidently wherever I go.

“Thank you for all your hard work!”

— Sophia

“Thanks,”

— Molly O’D.


“The friendly staff at Parks & Schmit Orthodontics made each visit enjoyable. At the end of every appointment, we were updated on the progress of my daughter’s teeth, and told what we could expect to see in the following month. Having two locations made it very convenient to schedule appointments around school and other activities.

“I highly recommend Parks & Schmit as the orthodontist of choice!”

— Maria E.

I loved the thank you note and picture in the mail!”

“One of the many reasons I enjoy coming to P&S Ortho is how organized, comforting, and enjoyable their entire staff is. As a parent, I was extremely nervous when my son went through the process and everyone in the practice made me feel comfortable. I have continued to be very impressed at every appointment with the organization of the practice and the continued comfort I have. I would recommend P&S Ortho to anyone!”

— Lisa V.


“Thank you for letting me get braces. I loved having them on. You stayed with me the whole time, and I am thankful for that. I love the camper, too! My teeth feel weird without them on but I will get used to them! I will help pay office the bill when I get older. Love you, Mom and Dad!”

— Jesina


“We had a truly amazing experience with Dr. Schmit and his staff. You will notice I use the word ‘we’ as our son, Reid, was the patient, and he was the first priority. However, Dr. Schmit also treated the rest of the family with the same respect, kindness, and care.

“Reid had a prior orthodontic experience that was not positive. He was scared, and on top of that, he has a terrible gag reflex. We were referred to Dr. Schmit by some friends. He was recommended so highly that we thought it wouldn’t hurt to have a consult. It took a little coaching and support from mom and dad, but Reid agreed to a consult. When we arrived, we had the opportunity to meet with, and speak to, a very warm and kind lady that took the time to develop a relationship with Reid in the time she had. She helped him to feel comfortable versus scared or intimidated. It was evident that (the relationship) was the first priority, and the next was to explain to Reid how the process worked and answer any questions. In addition, as Reid’s mother, I also received all of the necessary information and was provided the opportunity to ask questions, so nothing was left unanswered prior to leaving. We also had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Schmit. He was kind to Reid and spent time getting to know him, developing rapport, and ensuring that both Reid and I understood the process and had the opportunity to ask him any questions. He began developing a relationship with Reid from the initial consult and continued it all the way through to the very end.

“Following our first visit, we were sold. Dr. Schmit, and every person that we came in contact with, were kind, warm and genuine (including Dr. Parks who filled in for Dr. Schmit once while he was on vacation). I specifically would like to comment in regard to Lisa, as she spent the most time with Reid during his care. She is one of the kindest, sweetest, and most caring people you will ever meet. As a person (at Parks & Schmit Orthodontics), you really matter, and their customer service is top notch!

“Making it through this entire experience was something that I did not think my eight-year-old son would or could do. Every person that assisted Reid along the way was so supportive and encouraging. I can say today that Reid would do it all over again, and his teeth look beautiful!

“We are fans of Parks & Schmit Orthodontics, which includes every person we came in contact with. We would highly recommend Parks & Schmit Orthodontics to anyone in need of these services.”

— Lisa P.


“Professionalism and results.  Two wonderful reasons why Parks & Schmit has shown itself to be an excellent practice for orthodontic treatment. The doctors along with every member of their staff made my experience pleasant, organized, and in the end well worth it!”

— Kevin D.


“The first time I walked into Parks & Schmit, my teeth were going every which way and I didn’t like to smile for pictures. Dr. Parks assured me that he could make my smile perfect; he was right. I now have a beautiful set of teeth and love to smile all the time. The team at Parks & Schmit couldn’t have been more helpful or great to work with throughout all my years with braces!”

— Jonathan M.


“I just wanted to write a short letter to express my thanks to Dr. Clayton Parks and his amazing staff for giving me my beautiful smile back again. I had braces as a teenager and stopped wearing my retainer a few years ago (and of course, they got crooked after that!). At first, I was a little nervous and maybe even a bit self-conscious going back into braces as an adult, but the porcelain braces were barely even noticeable! Many people commented that they looked like a retainer. The atmosphere in the office was fun, friendly, and relaxed. Everyone went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and welcome!

“As a dentist myself, I had a lot of questions and concerns along the way; Dr. Parks was really great about addressing all of them. Best of all, I’m thrilled with the outcome!

“I would recommend Parks & Schmit Orthodontics to anyone!”

— Dr. Shayna Schumacher


“My experience with Dr. Jason Schmit and staff has been wonderful. From the first consultation to the “end” result, I am beyond thrilled! Everyone there is so professional and supportive. I recommend them highly!”

— Donni B.


“Words cannot express my heartfelt gratitude for everything you have done for me over the past two-and-a-half years.

“I was someone who was very self-conscious about my teeth for many years before coming to your office. Through your expertise, care, and concern, you have certainly eliminated this negative feeling. I never thought the day would come when I could smile wholeheartedly without being embarrassed about my smile. That day has finally come and it’s because of you that I’m actually proud of my smile!

“It has been a long journey, but the result is truly unbelievable. When I look in the mirror, I am still amazed at the transformation! I never thought such improvement was possible. Ever. I cannot believe the change in my appearance and confidence, but also the amazing and positive difference to my daily life.

“As an entire staff, you are truly priceless. I am forever grateful for the bonds and friends we have forged over the past two years. It is bittersweet for me to have completed my orthodontic treatment because I will no longer be able to visit with you on a regular basis.

“I am so lucky and proud to tell anyone who asks that, ‘Dr. Schmit did this!’ ”

— Darlene


“I received the before-and-after pics in the mail today. It brought tears to my eyes. I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for my daughter.

“Courtney and I came to you. Courtney was made fun of every day, multiple times a day, and had no self-confidence. Thanks to you, Dr. Parks, and staff, Dr. Frederick, you all changed her life. She now has friends, she is not teased at all, and has so much self-confidence! I am forever in your debt! I thank you from the bottom of my heart! All of you are literally part of our family now!

“I have a little program on my phone to have fun with pictures. I’ve made a little timeline of ‘our’ journey. I’ve included it for you. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy what you have done for Courtney!”

— Laura L.


“Getting my braces at Parks & Schmit was a great experience. Everyone was so nice when I came into the office. From my very first appointment, they made sure I wasn’t scared or nervous. They always gave me compliments on my smile, or talked to me about something I was wearing and the activities I’m involved with. They really got to know me, made me feel important, and everyone was genuinely nice.”

— Claire L.
