  • Jo Ann – Office Manager

    My interest in dentistry started very early, when I loved to go to grandfather and uncle's dental office and "help". (They were very tolerant). Dentistry has really changed from the "good old days". I moved here from the east coast 30 years ago, specifically to work for a progressive dental practice, and I've been with Dr. Schmotter ever since. We have a great group of employees, all dedicated to offering the best in dentistry.
