Welcome to Our Practice

In June 1977, a newly graduated dental student, Barbara Ann Schneider DMD, purchased this practice from Dr. Vincent Barr at it's former location on East Main Street. In June 1982, Richard D Schneider DMD joined his wife in the blossoming practice at 670 East Main Street.

1992 brought big changes with the contruction of a new office on the west side of town! Dr. Schneider and Dr. Schneider practiced together for another two years before Barbara retired in December 1994.

We are a family oriented practice and we look forward to serving your family's dental needs!

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "This is the best dental office in our area. They are really friendly. Whatever comes up, the dentist and his staff help you navigate it. It doesn't matter how often you need to update your schedule, they are always patient too. I'm so glad this is our doctor."
    Lana P.
  • "I discovered something amazing after I had an emergency situation with my mouth. I contacted them and they worked me in. My last dentist just couldn't make room for me. It's amazing when someone is willing to help you end unyeilding pain without a trip to the emergency room with people who aren't skilled in the specific area."
    Edward R.
  • "When I touched base with Dr. Schneider's office last week he was able to work me in on short notice. Yes, worked into a dental clinic schedule fast. My mouth was sore thanks to an abecess. The doctor handled it and I began recovering."
