Inform & Educate

We empower you to make wise, well-informed decisions for your oral health through patient education and individual consultation. We do this through the modern technology we offer. Our digital x-rays are equipped with special cavity-detecting software, and we also utilize an intraoral camera to show you what we see in your mouth. We also make sure to stay up-to-date on your medical history, current medications and any other factors that might affect your dental health and treatment.


Insurance & Billing

We are an insurance-friendly office, so please call us about your plan. We will do our best to assist you in maximizing your benefits. At your first visit to our Mentor dental practice, we will ask you for your current insurance information. We may ask you to confirm this information at subsequent visits so we can stay up-to-date and fully informed to serve you. As a courtesy to you, we file all claim forms electronically, provide postage for special claims, and we track claims for you.

Foundational Preventative Family Dentistry

In addition to providing your family with the oral health care you need we are also committed to providing you with continued education on preventative measures to reduce the likelihood of any dental issues developing.


This is especially true for our pediatric care. We are trained to help new parents learn and implement the best oral care for their newborn, especially regarding baby teeth. It can have an important impact on their developing proper chewing habits, speech, and creating good habits for maintaining general oral health.


In addition to monitoring their growth and milestone achievements, we are also dedicated to educating your child in proper preventative oral health care habits. We also pride ourselves in creating a welcoming environment that helps a child feel comfortable in their new dental home.

Dental Services for All Adults

In addition to providing the appropriate support to make sure your children receive the care they need to develop and maintain their oral health; we are equally as dedicated to providing to you the care you need. As we all age, we will inevitably need to address oral health issues that are new and unfamiliar to us. At Dr. Crystal Dental, we can offer a comprehensive range of dental services that are commonly associated with various ages. These might include periodontal therapy, dental implants, and cosmetic dental procedures that are designed to restore your smile. We will provide continuity in the dental care you receive and will base our treatments on an established relationship that is grounded in an understanding of your personal dental history.

Regular and Consistent Family Exams

One of the best ways to maintain the oral health of you and your family is to schedule regular family exams and checkups. Most exams will include evaluation of the following:


  • Any signs of tooth decay: We will use special dental instruments to look for evidence of tooth decay on the surfaces of your teeth.
  • Signs of gum disease: We will examine the gums and bone around your teeth for any signs of periodontitis, or gum disease.
  • The status of existing restorations: We will examine the status of fillings, crowns, or other restorations.
  • X-rays: Regular X-rays are taken to identify and detect cysts, tumors, decay, or bone loss.
  • Oral cancer screening: A thorough examination of the gums, lips, neck, throat, and face for early warning signs of oral cancer.

By scheduling these regular exams and checkups, you can significantly reduce the likelihood of you or any family member of developing unexpected dental health issues.

Comprehensive Dentistry

Comprehensive dentistry with Dr. Crystal Schneider, involves the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the teeth, gums and jaw. She believes that preventive care is the most important aspect of comprehensive dentistry. Dr. Schneider aims to identify and treat problems while they’re still small, which can save you time, money and more extensive dental treatment.

Cosmetic Dentistry

An attractive smile can boost your confidence, help you make better first impressions on others, and improve your personal and professional life. We provide several cosmetic dental treatments that can subtly enhance your smile, and there are many other more dramatic treatments, often called “smile makeovers,” that can give you the smile of your dreams.

Specialized Dentistry

Missing teeth can take the joy out of the everyday things we love, from smiling and talking with confidence to eating our favorite foods. All of these things can become easier again with specialized dental care. Dr. Schneider offers advanced treatments that will not just restore your smile to its former health – they’ll make it look and feel even better than before!

Teaching at Home Oral Hygiene

At Dr. Crystal Dental, we make sure all our patients of all ages know the proper way to brush their teeth.

Here are the basic steps we reinforce:

  • Position the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle toward the gums.
  • Gently move the brush across your teeth in short circular motions.
  • Brush the front surfaces, the back surfaces, and the tops of the teeth, making sure to reach the back molars.
  • This must be done twice a day for two minutes each time to remove the ever-occurring damaging plaque.
  • Floss and rinse once a day.
