Dr. Glenn Schmidt, DDS, MS
Dr. Glenn Schmidt is a proud New Orleans native who knew from an early age that he wanted to become a dentist. He graduated from Jesuit High School, got his BS from Loyola University, and graduated from LSU Dental School in May of 1985. Dr. Schmidt actually put himself through dental school by doing carpentry, which he would end up putting to good use in the months following graduation. Dr. Schmidt renovated a quaint, historic uptown home, and transformed it into what patients today know as Riverbend Dental Center, a state-of-the-art dental center that opened its doors in September of 1985.
Dr. Schmidt's philosophy is simple. Offer patients the best, cutting edge care, and treat patients as he would his own family. Dr. Schmidt and his team take a friendly, genuine approach to patient comfort, and they believe in really getting to know their patients so they can provide them with the best treatment options for their individual lifestyles and budgets. The Riverbend Dental Center staff is highly trained and experienced in all areas of dentistry, whether it's an ultra sonic cleaning, sleep apnea, invisible orthodontics, TMJ, or replacing missing teeth with dental implants. Dr. Schmidt has lectured around the country to dentists on a number of topics, and in order to stay up to date on all of the latest techniques and breakthroughs in dentistry, and takes about 250 hours of continuing education credits a year at courses and workshops around the country.
Dr. Schmidt is a devoted and proud father of three, and while his children are now successful young professionals, he still remains active in their lives and the causes that are dear to their hearts. Dr. Schmidt recently crafted and donated a doll house in the shape of a cupola for the Sacred Heart auction and fundraiser, his daughter's alma mater. Dr. Schmidt also participates in global mission trips with some of his fellow colleagues to help those in third world countries who would otherwise have no access to dental care. He is a contributor to the book Secrets of Peak Performers, and loves mentoring dental school students who often reach out to him for guidance and support.
