Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Tim G. from Arnold, MO (Source: Yelp)


Had two root canals several months apart as well as a few cleanings at this dentist. First visit was an emergency and they managed to get me in the same day I called (to my ENORMOUS relief – I couldn’t even close my mouth at that point) despite having a very busy schedule. Both roots were surprisingly painless and have held up just fine, and my teeth are probably the healthiest they’ve ever been now. Staff are all very nice and professional and clearly care about providing a quality service. I’ve had some bad dentistry done in the past (never, ever let them put a drill in your mouth until you’re good and numb) and I’ve been perfectly satisfied with Plaza Health so far. Don’t let the few one star reviews scare you off, some people just can’t be bothered to care for their teeth and would rather blame the dentist than take responsibility for their own actions.

I can’t begin to explain how well taken care of I always feel after visiting Dr.Schmidts team. The phobia of dentist visits have been severe since childhood with me. But Linda is always so patient and thorough in explaining what she’s about to do that I almost instantly feel relaxed. Even their receptionists are top notch. After my last Dentist stopped using my health care provider and learning about some deep gum issues that need some serious care, I struggled finding a new location for awhile and Plaza Dentistry really was a gem find.

Patti M. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


I want to start by saying that I have been terrified of dentists since childhood. For years I would only go to the dentist if something broke or hurt. A broken tooth led me to Dr. Schlotz and Plaza Health Dentistry. I was so scared at my first visit but everyone was so nice and understanding about my fears, they put me right at ease. I am so comfortable with the entire team that not only did they fix my broken tooth, they did implants on my upper teeth replacing a very old partial. I love my new teeth and not having to worry with a partial is so nice. Dr. Schlotz promised he would not hurt me and he kept that promise. If you are afraid of the dentist like I was, do yourself a favor and go to Plaza Health Dentistry. You won’t be sorry.

Best dental office ever!!! The front desk girls are so welcoming and warm your heart with smiles, hellos, and positivety as soon as you walk in!! The dentist, dental hygienists, & dental assistants are also really really sweet and comforting! Also very organized and communication is 10/10. They got me in and out super quick too! Hands down best place u can go for cleanings/ any teeth problems.

Melanie V. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


Very comfortable waiting area. They got me back quickly for my free consultation, and treated my spouse and son like they were actually there not empty chairs. Consultation went great and they were able to do an exam right after without an appt for that. Very friendly assistant and dentist. Thorough and ask lots of questions. Look forward to going back and actually getting the work done.

Jim L. from St. Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient here for a short time. Today, I inadvertently showed up for an appointment to have two temporary crowns installed. They could have ‘blown’ me off, since it was my error, but after consulting with Dr. Schmidt, they were able to work me in with great results. Can’t say enough about the care and attention they show their patients.

I had fairly severe tooth pain and called for an appt. The staff got me into the office within a few hours and proceeded to assist me in scheduling an appointment with a specialist for a needed procedure. The Doctor also prescribed me some pain relievers to get me through which I really, really appreciate. Excellent staff with fantastic service and patient care. I’m going back and would recommend them to other people.

I usually do not enjoy the dentist, so I hadn’t been to one in a number of years, however, I will be returning to them regularly. The staff from start to finish was knowledgeable, thorough, and fun. Great experience! ….also great music! Update 12-21-20: went back for the 6 month cleaning and the first visit was not a fluke. Still the best around. I never thought I’d say this, but I’m looking forward to going back in six months.

Becca S. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Plaza Heath Dentistry for several years. Originally I saw Dr. Fitzgerald (he retired) and now see Dr. Schmidt. The office is always clean and they do their best to make patients comfortable. The staff is very friendly and does a good job of answering questions and concerns. They use a lot of modern technology in their treatments. For example, I need a mouth piece when I sleep. Rather than using wax or plaster (the old way), they did 3D imaging of my mouth to make it. Getting an appointment is usually fairly easy and they accommodate different work schedules. The only thing I wish is that they still did extractions/oral surgery.

Pat S. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


After selecting Plaza Health Dentistry and Dr. William Schlotz based on on-line research and reviews, I felt compelled to give my own review about my recent treatment.  I am one of those people that go to the dentist every 6-months  for check-ups and cleaning (for over 20 years).  My regular dentist began to cut back his hours and I knew that I wanted to have some cosmetic work done on my front teeth, so I went to Plaza Health Dentistry on Watson Rd., in St. Louis.  The x-ray results were disastrous.  Multiple cavities, over-filled teeth, etc.  I was shocked.  With only 3 visits to Dr. Schlotz, my teeth have not only been repaired but the natural looking veneers have improved the appearance of my smile.  And as a public speaker, that was very important to me.  Several comments about my experience at Plaza Health Dentistry would include:  A team that operates like a well-oiled machine; polite, experienced and caring, an updated array of technology and photo imaging techniques and an accounts payable team that actually understands insurance.  All in only 3 visits.  I recommend Plaza Health Dentistry if you are looking for that healthier and improved appearance of your smile. – Pat

I went here for the first time today, and also my first time to see a dentist in quite some time. All of the staff I encountered were super friendly. They didn’t make me feel embarrassed for how long it’s been. During this time they also took precautions and made me feel very safe. So happy to be taking my dental health seriously and to have found a place that makes me feel comfortable.

I’ve gone to Plaza Health for a few years now and they are always very proactive about my dental health without scolding and make me feel very welcome every time I go. I have bad doctor/dentist anxiety and the staff here are exceptionally patient and helpful to people like me: they explain everything that they’re doing if it’s a new thing. My comfort is one of their highest priorities so I highly recommend them. They’re kind and considerate and will work with you or have options when it comes to payment plans if you’re in need of that. It helped me get some of the much needed work done.

I recently had some extensive work done by Doctor Schmidt and her incredible staff and I can not thank them enough for the excellent care and compassion I received. Doctor Schmidt took all the time I needed to discuss and thoroughly explain what I needed and listened to my expectations and her and her wonderful staff far exceeded my expectations. They made sure that I was never in any pain and let me know what they were doing every step of the way. I’ll never go anywhere else to have work done and I now have a great smile again. I can’t wait to go back whether for cleanings or future work that may be necessary. These people are the best!!! Bar none!

MaryAlice Hausman (Source: Google)


I never thought I would look forward to going to the dentist… but I do NOW‼️ The staff, all incredible women, make the experience pleasant and pain free. They truly care which is obvious as soon as you reach the front desk to the chairs in the back where the work is done. They educate and inform me on whatever procedure is to be performed. I could go on and on about this practice which I was so blessed to discover after so many disappointments.

Steve B. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Plaza Health Dentistry for 6 years with very good results. From my teeth cleaning to major dental work I feel very confident that I’m in good hands with the Staff at Plaza Health Dentistry. Dr Schlotz is the best dentist I have ever had. He makes you feel very comfortable and at ease. What I enjoy the most is how friendly and comfortable everyone makes you feel from check in to something that is major work like an implant. Everyone from Dr Schlotz to the staff makes your visit to the dentist a very comfortable experience and I would highly recommend Plaza Health Dentistry to any of my friends. Is a matter of fact ,my whole family are patients of Dr Schlotz. My 11 year old son even likes going to the dentist, Prior to Plaza Health Dentistry I was a patient of other dentists in town and I always felt uncomfortable sitting in the dentist chair because the rooms were so small and stuffy. At Plaza Health Dentistry, the 2nd floor office is spacious, open and very comfortable with relaxing decor. You will be comfortable with its high ceilings, spacious rooms and large windows to view out of giving you a very comfortable and relaxing feeling. Give Dr Schlotz and the staff your next dental appointment, you will have a great experience.

Carol S. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Schlotz has been my dentist for several years and has always been very professional in my dental care. I trust in his opinion about how to treat my dental problems as he never rushes into a certain treatment unless he’s sure about the outcome. Recently he did an overlay on a tooth he previously treated and deducted the amount charged on the original tooth. Not many dentists would stand behind their work as he did. Dr. Schlotz has been our family dentist as my husband also has been treated by him. We are both very happy about his services and care.

Joe M. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Plaza Health Dentistry is friendly, professional and kind to patients. Dr.Scholtz and his team genuinely care about their patients and provide excellent services at affordable prices. Plaza Health Dentistry is the best dental practice I have ever been to. The team actaully telephones patients AFTER any procedure to see how you are doing. As long as I live in this area, I will always be a patient of Dr. Scholtz and Plaza Health Dentistry. It is without reservation that I recommend Plaza Health Dentistry and Dr. Scholtz.

Keith L. from Belleville, IL (Source: Yelp)


I had a tooth crack and contacted Plaza Health; I set an appointment; upon arriving at the office I found the atmosphere to be relaxing but professional, everyone at the office seemed to be upbeat.  After being examined by Dr. Schlotz they gave me a temporary crown, which relieved my pain; 2-3 weeks later I went back for the permanent crown, besides the normal numbness issue that followed, the procedure was painless; the crown they use is not just a cap on your tooth it is made with precision; I would say that Dr Schlotz has very good dentistry skills, I’m sure you would agree.

They were able to get me in very quickly. The first new patient appointment takes longer anywhere but this went by so quickly. They have loads of technology to help treat and detect teeth/mouth issues. Lindy was my hygienist and she’s hilarious, so nice and very wonderful about checking in to make sure you’re okay. I will be back with them in 6 months.

R B. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Imagine if you can your childhood memory involving the Huge Elephant, squeezed into the corner tippy toe on a stool, scared of the tiny gray mouse looking up at him. Well, when it comes to a dentist..that’s me. Scared… no shame.. Scared. Bad experiences you might say. On 12/08/2020 my life literally changed (a little dramatic?) but it did. I apprehensively went to Plaza Health Dentistry for some dental work. Let me attempt to quickly explain my experience. The employees immediately went about setting me at ease. Their manner was polite, professional and friendly, like they really did care about my health. They answered questions I didn’t know I had. Hope they don’t take offense, but it was like boarding the Starship Enterprise, the advanced technology is mind boggling. I have babbled enough… the main point I wish to make is this is the most professional technically advanced dentist office I’ve ever been in. Their work is impeccable AND I didn’t have any pain during or after treatment and it was rather extensive. I Highly recommend going here for your dental needs.

B B. from St. Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


The beat dentist EVER!!!! I am grateful for Dr. Scholtz, and his AMAZING team at Plaza Health Dentistry. They are caring and knowledgeable. They did what no other dentist could…. And I mean that literally. I had seen about 4 other dentists repeatedly over the course of a year in an effort to find a resolution for my severe toothaches caused by a high crown. None of those dentists were able to recognize that my crown was high. So they took my money, barely did anything, and rushed me out of the office. From the initial phone call to Plaza Health Dentistry, I felt good. They asked detailed questions about my situation, and seemed like they cared and knew what to do. They made a quick appointment, since I was in pain. Dr. Schlotz immediately recognized that my crown was really high. He was surprised that I dealt with this problem for so long. I told him I’d been to other dentists numerous times over the last year. So he immediately worked out a treatment schedule, because he recognized that it would take a series of appointments to adjust my high crown. My bite was off; My jaw muscles were sore because I was constantly holding the left side of my mouth higher to avoid striking the high tooth. So I was really messed up. Dr Schlotz didn’t stop until I was better. Now I feel normal, and I am very thankful and finally happy again. Please choose Plaza Health Dentistry. They know their stuff and they care.

I have the highest anxiety when it comes dental work and the staff here is beyond amazing and understanding. The dentist took care of me and comforted me through the whole process and can’t express how much I appreciate them. I will definitely refer them to everyone I know. Thanks for being so kind.



A dental office that really understand the unique dental needs of every customer. 5 Star’s for all the Staff, facilities , equipment. 10 Star’s for dental procedures and cost .. actually ! I would not mind to be on their comfortable chair for an additional hour or two :). Was a pleasure to see the Bill and pay. Don’t look any further .. visit them and will see how great they threat people .. by the way ! They are people too and rest for sure they take care of their dental needs .. so! they know the business from A to Z. Thank you so much .. Sincerely, a Recently Retired Army and now “ Living la Vida Loca “ as a DJ 🙂

By far the most welcoming and thorough team I’ve ever had the pleasure to sit in the chair for! I came in with concerns about a tooth that had been bothering me. Not only did they get me in quickly to take a look, they even found time for a cleaning and sufficient face time with several members of the team. My hygienist even took time to let me hold a mirror and demonstrated proper flossing technique, which I definitely needed. Every single member of the team is personable and really there to help your teeth be the best they can be. I’d highly recommend booking an appointment as soon as you can!

Rebekah W. from Maryland Heights, MO (Source: Yelp)


I am petrified of the dentist!! For this reason, it had been a long time since I had seen the dentist. I typically only went once their was extreme pain involved with my teeth. From the moment I went in for a dental cleaning at Plaza Health Dentistry, the team was incredibly caring and understanding. I was so embarrassed and fearful. There was NO judgement and they did everything they could to make me comfortable. I literally could not have made it through without Jamee, Julie, and the entire staff. Because of their support, I was able to get a totally new smile. With the different procedures that I had done, I saw both Dr. Fitz and Dr. Schlotz! They are both AMAZING!!! If you are looking for a new dentist, please consider this team. You will not regret it!

Nick G. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


After losing my long-time Dentist for decades I tried a new Chain-Dentistry-Office that came to town a few years ago. They recently closed their doors leaving me once again without proper Dental services. I was looking not only for a reputable Dentist but also a new home for all my Dental Care going forward. I met Dr. Schlotz and his Staff at Plaza Health Dentistry through a coupon that came in the mail for a routine cleaning. I had never used them before. While I expected at the very least a professional cleaning what I got was so much more! I was impressed with the quality of the coupon. It wasn’t just some slick, quickly-composed flyer to attract business. It was a highly professional-looking and informative piece. I knew instantly that the organization behind this mailer had the very same characteristics. The Staff was incredible to work with. From the Receptionists to the Billing Staff to the Technicians to the Doctors everyone was so knowledgeable and professional. They seemed genuinely happy to work for this practice and serve their clients. I was greeted with smile after smile after smile on every visit. All my questions and concerns were readily and fully answered. The physical space was attractive, comfortable, relaxing, modern and enjoyable. But what struck me most was the teamwork and consistency of service shown by all those involved in my care. They truly worked as one Team and not as individualized or specialized caregivers. While there were always other patients in the Office during my visits I was made to feel like I was the only one the staff was caring for. They did everything possible to make me feel comfortable, understand their recommendations and worked with me on pricing and policies. This was especially important since I am Self-Pay. They helped me save significantly on the costs of my procedures by informing me timely of savings during their Customer Appreciation Week. This made it possible for me to obtain much-needed services beyond the routine cleaning. Dr. William Schlotz was the consummate professional. His skills were superb. He was very gentle when working on me. He explained every procedure and action he was performing. But most importantly, he exhibited the highest level of professionalism in his care for me. He is an extremely humble person, given the supreme level of his abilities. He made me feel completely at ease giving me the highest level of confidence in the direction of his care and recommendations throughout the entire process of my multiple visits. Although this was my very first interaction with Plaza Health Dentistry I felt as If I had known this Dentist and his Staff all my life. I was treated as a long-term, valued customer and not just a one-time-coupon-binging-buyer! I cannot thank Dr. Schlotz and his Staff enough at Plaza Health Dentistry for helping me maintain proper Dental Health and ensuring a bright future of “All Smiles!” I came to this practice because of a coupon. I left finding a Home!

Dr. Schlotz and everyone at Plaza Health Dentistry in Crestwood, MO are awesome. I have been a customer for 8 years. Their customer service and dentistry skills are world class. I have been to many dentists but stopped looking when I found Dr. Schlotz. He is the rare combination of perfectionist, artist and scientist. He, his assistant, Julie, and the rest of the staff focus on your comfort and care from the moment you arrive until you leave. . Plaza Health Dentistry hygienists are top notch. They give you great advice on how to keep your teeth and gums healthy. The front desk staff are very friendly and take care of all of your appointments, billing, and insurance needs. I highly recommend Dr. Schlotz and his staff 🙂 Please contact them at 314.843.0500

I had a great experience at Plaza Health today. I had 3 fillings done and I was definitely a little nervous before (and I’m a nurse!), but it ended up being such an easy experience. I was given a button I could press that would stop the drill if I felt any pain (but I didn’t need to use it – actually the drilling felt good, like a massage!) because the numbing stuff worked so well (and I only felt a tiny pinch when they used their wand numbing system). The entire staff worked hard to make sure I was comfortable and felt welcome. No wait before the procedure. I feel really excited that the decay is gone and that I did this before it all got more severe. I highly recommend getting any fillings/procedures or cleanings done at Plaza Health!

Dr. Schmidt and her crew are the best in St. Louis. They are professional, kind, and friendly. I always feel safe and welcome when I go. They make going to the dentist a pleasant (and sometimes humorous!) experience! I highly recommend Dr. Schmidt and these professionals! I love Dr. Schmidt so much that I followed her from her last workplace in St. Charles.

Laura Woodss (Source: Google)


Dr. Schmidt and the great ladies at Plaza make going to the dentist enjoyable! I love to hear them interact, laugh and do anything they can to make you feel more comfortable. I’ve been going here for YEARS, and my cleanings are always a breeze. They also handle my insurance efficiently. I’d give them 100 stars if I could!

Mark B. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


Plaza Health has always provided friendly and timely service and they’ve been there when I’ve had a couple dental “emergencies”. The dentists and staff are knowledgeable, professional and sympathetic. I’ve been through a couple of root canals with can very very scary but they got me through it. I would recommend Plaza Health to anyone looking for great dental care in the St. Louis area.

Love everyone at the office. Everybody is so friendly and so welcoming, you always see them smiling. From the moment you walk in you’re treated as if they know exactly who you are and that they’ve known you for years and not like you’re just another patient. They are all very understanding about how nervous a patient can be at the visit and they do everything they can to comfort them.

Barbara Holland (Source: Facebook)


Their work is excellent. Everyone is very professional but also very friendly. The only thing I have against them is there due to exams that cost me $68 every six months that I really cannot afford. It’s the cancer check and something else. I’m almost 80 years old and I really don’t need those scans.

Brett Quinn (Source: Google)


I hadn’t been to a dentist in a long time. Mainly due to the cost and lack of quality insurance. Many things have changed over the years and it was time to find new dentist. I chose Plaza Dentist merely on a few reviews I read. Unsure of what I was getting into I made the leap around 6 months ago to give it a try. From the moment I walked in I felt like I had made a great decision. Every person in the office I spoke with was friendly and polite. Not that fake polite where they are saying it from behind a fake smile. Everyone seems to enjoy their work and co-workers. I loved it so much I told my wife about it and she made the switch. Being that I hadn’t been to a dentist in years I figured I would get a talking too. Nope, the staff understood the situation. It’s hard to find places like this, but well worth it.

Carolyn J. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Schlotz is by and far the best dentist I have ever visited. Schlotz is kind, gentle, knowledgable, and personable. Schlotz cares about his patients’ health, comfort, and well-being. Schlotzs’ practice is full of kind, knowledgeable, and well trained staff as well. I always feel very confident that the dental work I am getting done is essential, well-done, and tailored to my specific needs. Schlotz takes the time to do the job right. He always makes sure I feel comfortable and safe to speak my opinion, which is a great quality to find in a dentist. My only concern about Plaza Health Dentistry is the lack of communication between me and the staff about the procedures I was having done. I really wish I could have had a sit down, or at least a written documentation of what I was getting done, how it would be done, and what I could expect. I felt a little out of control while having my veneers done. I always went into the appointment not knowing what was going to happen — however, because of my trust in Schlotz and his practice, I was still always at ease.
