"Staff and Dr. were great and the fact that they are submitting expenses to the insurance company in a fashion to get the most bang for my buck is very very very helpful to my finances. Not many other offices, if any, would even consider doing that to help the patients incurred cost."

"I always feel that I have received the best and most up-to-date dental care from Dr. Schlotz. The staff is very friendly and extremely competent."

“During a 42-year international career, logically I was driven to work with the best dentistry has, and continues to offer professionally and personally: Plaza dentistry is second to none, Dr. Schlotz and his team brought ease of understanding, outstanding guidance administratively, and leading edge diagnostic serenity. I have encouraged both acquaintances and family members to request acceptance for their future needs, whereas I am looking forward to the forthcoming required dental work. Congratulations to the entire Plaza Health Dentistry team: Excellent.”

“Dr. Schlotz is an outstanding dentist. His practice features very current facilities and equipment. I recently received an implant and crown and Dr. Schlotz did a wonderful job. His ability to clearly communicate his treatment plan with his patients is a huge asset. And he remains current on the latest advancements in treatment and equipment. His rates are very competitive and his staff is very friendly and professional. You will be very happy with Dr. Schlotz!"

"I'm very glad that I found this dentist office I really enjoy talking with the staff and i find that the doctor is very efficient in his work and really knows what he is doing , I'm very happy ."

"Dr. Schlotz's office was amazing! It was so awesome inside, way nicer than most dentist office's! Not to mention the process was quick, easy and painless! Thanks Dr Schlotz & Family!"


My new bridge operation has been well performed. The dentist, Dr. Schlotz, the dental assistant, Julie, and others have been patient centered and very helpful to my dental health.
Julie is super nice, personal and very thorough.
Dr. Schlotz has taken patient care to the highest level not only with his expert dental work, but also with his flexibility in connection with financial obligations.
Mrs. Schlotz is very personable with her office operations.
All of these people have treated me more like family than a patient.
Joseph Nolan

7 month treatment all went well.
Great communication throughout.
Each visit fast and efficient. Respected my time.
Checked my insurance thoroughly to find any coverage to help offset my expense.
No regrets.
Don Rose

My experience with Plaza Health Dentistry has been wonderfull! The entire staff is very friendly, professional and they do a great job. I had many problems with my old fillings falling out, broken teeth, a split wisdom tooth and of course a great deal of discomfort eating and drinking. After my treatment, I now feel so happy with the knowledge that I don’t have to worry about dental problems in the future. Now I only have to take care of my new teeth! If I ever do need to have a problem taken care of, I will actually be looking forward to coming back because the great people here put me in a good mood for several days! I am definitely having my wife switch to Plaza Health Dentistry. I feel like I have friends here and I wish I would have found Plaza Health Dentistry years ago.
Thomas Mana

Plaza Health Dentistry delivers a service that is second to none, they’re always up on what’s new in dentistry. With a high level of treatment to everyone, latest equipment and a warm friendly office to boot. You can find other places but none nicer to take care of your teeth. I’m sold!
Karey Dabney

I am very pleased with the dental care I receive at Plaza Dental. The care and concern of Dr. Schlotz, Julie and all staff help a nervous patient relax. And, best of all, treatments and procedures are almost painless! I have recommended Plaza Dental to other family members, and they agree, for dental needs they’re the best.
Barb Eichhorst

I have always had a “concern” about dental care and its associated pain. However, Plaza Dental Care has eliminated this concern completely with its pain control techniques and their use of sedation dentistry. Their patient care is their greatest goal & they have succeeded!
Ken Jeans

Dr. Schlotz & his team are focused on removing the anxiety of going to the dentist. The staff is friendly & professional with a personal touch.
Bob Drury

The care I receive here is great. The “dental” part is good & the “chairside-people” part is the best too. There is never an issue of pain as that is always taken care of. I feel very confident that my dental needs are met with the best care by the best people.
Julie Weber

Dr. Schlotz and his entire staff have been extremely curteous in the care given to me. The Plaza Health Dentistry Team has been excellent in making me feel comfortable at all times. I could not be happier with my smile and I appreciate the attention to detail Dr. Schlotz provided me. I have never been more satisfied with a dental practice.
Rick Battelle

I had a root canal, they had to remove the old post and put in a new post. This process was painless, he only numbed me and had great Chairside manner. He explained everything that occurred before he did it, to my wife. You can really tell he cares about the well being of his patients. His assistant was just as pleasant.
The receptionist is also very pleasant.
This is the best experience w/ a dentist we ever had.
I would recommend him to everyone.
John Haring

My experience at PHD has been over and above any expectations. All areas of customer/patient care were covered very Professionally. I would NOT hesitate to refer anyone to PHD. The term "Team Members" was true!

My overall rating for Dr. Schlotz and his whole staff is #5. The dental work I have received has been excellent and I would recommend his to anyone
Everyone is friendly & kind and do their best to make you as comfortable as possible.

Overall Rating (1-5) = #5

I find the care I have received here is always very conscious of my comfort level. It can be such items as seating position in the exam chair; taste of any chemicals used; thorough cleaning; very courteous staff and always everyone is friendly and very skilled. This gives me confidence to entrust my dental needs to Dr. Schlotz + staff.
Mary Bettendorf

Dear Dr. Schlotz and the Plaza Health Dentistry staff,

Greetings from Virginia Beach! I bet you never thought I would actually send you a letter; sorry it has taken me so long...I didnt forget! Anyway, I just wanted to thank you all for such a wonderful experience. My new smile has truly changed my life. That sounds so dramatic, but it's so true. I love to smile and laugh and not have to worry about my teeth! I have always been a happy person but you would never have known it because I was always so self conscious of my appearance. My friends and family knew I wanted to have my teeth fixed but always told me I looked fine the way I was, now they all look at me and say "I can't get over how great your smile is." It's been about four months since I got my new smile, and I still love smiling at myself in the mirror, I am still as giddy about them today as I was the day I left your office. Thank you all for being so patient and calm and going above and beyond to get me fixed up for Christmas, Dr. Schlotz, you are an angel for coming in on your day off...meeting my boyfriend's family with a beautiful smile was the best gift anyone could have given me. Mel, you are wonderful, and sweet, thanks for making all of my visits fun, I hear the community college offers a great photo class, maybe you should take it up as a hobby! :)! Chris, you have such patience, you always handled my tons of phone calls and issues with a smile. You were all wonderful; you turned my apprehension into a wonderful experience, I couldn't be happier with my new smile or my decision to come to Plaza Health Dentistry!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Stephanie Brewer

To whom it may concern:

Going to the dentist has never been an enjoyable activity for me. As a child, my dentist was a bully who told me, "It doesn't hurt!" whenever I cringed in pain. Also, I have terrible gag reflex, and he belittled me for it.

I am now thirty six years old and a new patient of Dr. Schlotz's. I recently needed some dental work done and while he was treating me, he saw me cringe. He had used the Wand, but he quickly diagnosed that I had an additional nerve going to my tooth so he administered more Novocain. For almost three decades, this had gone undiagnosed and caused me much pain and avoidance of dentists in general.

The staff at his office is friendly and always calls me by name. In addition, they are competent as well as friendly and professional.

An interesting aspect of Dr. Schlotz is that he enjoys using the latest tools in dentistry, what I joke to his as his "toys." Actually, these tools make the appointment interesting, but also less painful. He engages my other senses in that he has an MP3 player and stereo headset for me to listen to while he is working, and the dentist chair is also so comfortable that I always feel like I could take a nap. Imagine me taking a nap while getting dental work done!

Regarding my gag reflex, everyone is so nice about it. Dr. Schlotz has a tool that minimizes gagging, so it barely is an issue anymore.

I like that he explains procedures to me and allows time for questions. He asks for input and makes conservative recommendations.

I volunteered to write a testimonial for PlazaView Dental Care because I don't dread going to the dentist anymore. Here I was diagnosed with a rare condition, called by my name from the moment I walked into the office and treated with respect and dignity. Added to all that is the fact that everyone enjoys a great sense of humor.

Enjoy your time with Dr. Schlotz and the staff at PlazaView Dental. I do.
Sincerely,

Stacey J. Stahl

My very good experience with Plaza Health Dentistry.


I am in my late sixties and it had been over 15 years since I had been to the dentist.

In October, I decided I could no longer put off my long needed dental work.

I was experiencing problems with deterioration of old fillings and had several teeth with old fillings that had broken off. I had to be very careful about what I ate and how I chewed.

Since I needed a lot of remedial dental work and I have always been self-conscious about my smile (because my teeth were not attractive) I decided to investigate improving the general appearance of my teeth.

I chose to go with Plazaview Dental because I was very impressed with the thoroughness of Dr. Schlotz's examinations, the explanations of treatment techniques, the fact that they offered "sedation" dentistry and Plaza Health Dentistry's Crestwood location was a plus.

Dr. Schlotz directed his staff to take full diagnostic x-rays and mouth impressions, then he prepared a detail treatment plan and reviewed it with me very thoroughly.

With confidence I decided on a full makeover involving numerous crowns, veneers on my front upper teeth and replacement of any old black fillings with modern white fillings on teeth not crowned or veneered.

Treatments started in December and were completed the following May and I am very happy with the results.

My teeth are now better that ever! It is so great to smile without feeling self-conscious. I can eat raw apples, raw carrots and corn on the cob, and I no longer have to worry about which side I am chewing on.

With my new teeth, people seem to respond differently when I smile at them. I have had friends & acquaintances do a double take when I said a smiling "hello". Family members have said I now have a "celebrity smile".

Dr. Schlotz and his very capable staff (especially Julie, Melissa, Melanie) did a wonderful job with compassion and skill.

Throughout the treatments, they minimized my anxiety by explaining what each treatment involved and they would explain each step as they were doing it. They were all very skilled and sensitive to minimizing my pain and discomfort.

I could not be happier with the results of Dr. Schlotz's dental work.

Thank you so much Dr. Schlotz, Julie, Melanie and Melissa.
Gus Nelson

I was treated courteously by the Doctor and all his assistants. Very professional. They seemed very thorough.

Our family have been patients of Dr. Von Rump since the 60's. Back then I had a mouthful of fillings that needed replacement. I am pleased to say since that time I have had great check ups, thanks to his good work.

Dear Plaza Health Dentistry,

My visit with Plaza Health was a wonderful experience. I am a christian and feel God brought this dental office to me. My first contact was with Julie, she was on her day off and answered the call, I felt I knew her, she was so concerned, caring and made me feel she wanted to help after I had several bad experiences with Dentists in the past or I could not afford their costly fees. Julie had positive concerns to help me with my dental needs. Julie is an angel to me and I treasure her dearly as all my expectations came through. I came to the office & met Dr. Schlotz & staff and felt very comfortable after being very nervous of Dentists. I was very pleased with his work & manner. In one week I had new teeth & fillings that had not been replaced in 10 years due to not finding a comfortable Dentist. I'm so pleased with my care. I thought I could not do my procedure. Chris, Dr. Schlotz, and Julie helped me to get over my fear. I am so happy to have a nice smile.
God Bless Respectfully,

Valerie Karpinski

Keep up the GOOD work.

I am very pleased to tell you that I have been getting a lot of compliments on my teeth. You and your professional staff have been very caring and have always made me feel important while I am in your chair. I always feel that you all go the extra mile to make sure I am well cared for.
The good advice on how to best take care of my special periodontal needs has made it easier for me to make sure my dental hygiene is the best it can be.
The invisalign for my upper teeth really was a quick and painless way to straighten my teeth. The work you did to take care of the gaps in my lower teeth was really great, and makes a huge difference in my appearance. I am also thrilled that I had the perio-laser procedure to stop the bone loss from periodontal disease.
While in your office I have received a painless care from your entire staff. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone for the best dental care anywhere. I want to thank everyone at Plaza Health Dentistry and let you all know that I appreciate the great care you have all given me.
Sincerely,

Dora Peters

What were your expectations and how did we exceed them?
You guys got the fear out of me, I like dentists now.

The experience that my 10 year old son and I receive whenever we visit Plaza View Dental gives going to the Dentist a whole new meaning.
The Drs. as well as the entire staff go far and beyound expectations to see that our every need is met. From the cleanliness of the facility, the friendliness of the staff, to the painless method that is used so that our dental work is without discomfort. That means so much to me because I have very sensitive teeth which has caused me in the past to neglect Dental visits because of the discomfort.
I walk into Plaza View Dental's door with NO FEAR because I know whatever it is that I'm going for, the Drs. and staff there will take care of it.
After becoming a patient of Plaza View Dental, I would not attempt to trust anyone else for my son or I, and for someone as particular as I whenever it comes to my health, and my son's health, that say alot.
Thank you,
Kyanna Smith

Michael Temm (the cake guy!)

With panic attacks and much fear I would enter a dentst's office.
After hearing of Dr. Schlotz's pain-free technique on KSIV radio, I decided to get a needed root canal done.
From the initial call to the office to walking out the door, the whole staff was wonderful! A warm, friendly, and comforting atmosphere was appreciated!
The techs kind words, gentle touch and use of headphones all added to my comfort.
Dr. Schlotz continued the experience providing comfort in his technique. I believe I have found a place where I feel I can trust their words "pain-free".
Thank you to Dr. Schlotz and his staff for showing mercy to a fearful one.
