Dr. Gilbert J. Schmidtke

In 1974, I graduated from Marquette University School of Dentistry with a Master’s Degree in Orthodontics. I opened a practice on the north side of Appleton, at that time at the edge of the city. Of course, I had no idea how things would go. But, thank God, I was blessed to meet and help so many wonderful children and parents! 

It’s almost impossible to express how much I enjoyed working with my great staff to give smiles to the kids and adults of Appleton. I only wish I could have done it forever! However, my son has the same vision and passion! I am thankful that he continues to create smiles for patients to enjoy for a lifetime!

Now that I’m retired, I get to spend a lot more time with my wife Roxanne, and enjoy our three grandchildren, Alex, Jack and Phillip.

I loved going to Schmidtke Orthodontics as a child. Now I am bringing my daughter and find it’s still the same great practice. Thank you for providing beautiful smiles for my daughter and I. – Andrea T.
My child had a difficult case. Dr. Schmidtke was sensitive to our concerns and went out of his way to make sure we felt comfortable with the care. – Robert F.
I decided to pursue orthodontics as a 43 year old woman. I admit, at first I wasn’t thrilled with the idea of wearing braces as an adult. The staff at Schmidtke Orthodontics quickly put me at ease with the decision I had made. They took the time at every appointment to explain exactly what was going to be happening. The time flew by and I am so happy I went through with it. My smile looks great and I feel much more confident. – Susan V.
If you’re looking for a top-quality orthodontic experience, I highly recommend Schmidtke Orthodontics. Dr. Schmidtke and his staff are second-to-none. They will have you smiling beautifully, and the friendships you’ll make along the way are truly priceless. – Deb S.
