I rarely review medical practitioners but Dr Schweier truly deserves a five star for his warm professional bedside manner, meticulous examination and very effective but gentle treatment of oral cavity as well as other dental issues. I can tell he has a ‘patient first’ mentality and is very honest in his assessment. He won’t advise you treatments (especially costly ones) unless he feels you truly need it. I’ve had my fair share of dentists in three different states (NYC, GA, NC) but Dr. Schweier by far is the best. I can say this because (1) right before Labor Day, I woke up with severe tooth ache. I had no idea why. The clinic was able to see me that same day and Dr Schweier was able to quickly pinpoint the root cause after a thorough examination — it turned out my tooth nerve had died and I needed a root canal. He had a strong sense of urgency and really wanted to make sure this gets addressed ASAP as more severe things can happen if the root canal treatment gets postponed. Keep in mind root canal is not a short process and I was nervous about going back home with a tooth ache and things getting worse. Even though he had a tight schedule, he was gracious enough to move things around and treated me right away! If he hadn’t done that, my Labor Day weekend would’ve been miserable with the severe front tooth ache and I would be worried about infection. I really appreciate his sense of urgency and care for me! (2) I dread any form of cavity drilling and mentioned this to Dr. Schweier. In my experience, anesthesia never eliminated the pain and that nerve pinching discomfort from drilling. But today during my visit, Dr. Schweier and his assistant Joice were super gentle and made the drilling and cavity filling absolutely painless!!! To my surprise, this is a first for me! He joked he’ll increase the anesthesia dosage but I’m sure his skilled techniques played a big role. He and Joice really make a great team and he treats his staff with respect which is great. (3)receptionists and assistants are very professional and nice. I also got my teeth cleaned here by the hygienist – she’s very thorough and takes her time. I definitely recommend Dr. Schweier for anyone!
