BRIGHTON — On the eve of Mountain View Family Dental’s fifth anniversary, Dr. John Schmidt has announced plans to move to a newly constructed state-of-the-art facility later this month.
Dr. Schmidt — or John, as he prefers to be called by his patients — first opened Mountain View Family Dental’s doors to the Brighton community in July 2009. Currently operating at 2700 E. Bridge St., the practice will be opening the doors on its new location less than a mile away — 191 Telluride St., Suite #3, in the Telluride Business Park — on Tuesday, June 17.
“I believe in taking the time to listen to and understand my patients’ needs,” Schmidt said in an announcement of the move, citing his motivation behind designing the new office. “We have simply outgrown ourselves and the only way to truly support the growing community without sacrificing patient care was to design a bigger space with brand-new equipment.”
The facility — which Schmidt spent the past year developing with a team of professionals — will boast a full-service surgery suite, multiple hygiene chairs, top-of-the-line operatory chairs, a private consultation room, and software developed for patient education. These additions paired with new techniques learned by Dr. Schmidt through higher-education courses are what he believes will foster better dental experiences for his current and future patients.
“My goal is to really put an emphasis back on preventative care,” Schmidt said. “Let’s stop the problem before it starts, and if we can’t, let’s make your treatment as comfortable as possible.”
MVFD also plans for an open house in August, with a date to be announced soon.
“It’s been a really great five years," Schmidt concludes, “I’ve grown to really love the city and, more importantly, I’ve grown to love the community.”
