Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

While growing up in Minnesota, Dr. Schnieder’s childhood dentist always gave kids funky-looking sunglasses to wear and even made balloon animals with a compressed air syringe. He even let her squirt the water like a squirt gun while in the treatment chair! In short, going to the dentist throughout these formative years was a fun and exciting experience, and it inspired her to want to follow the same career path and leave patients smiling as well.

Where Did You Study Dentistry?

Midwestern University

Dr. Schnieder’s college career started at St. Cloud State University, where she achieved her Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences. From there, she graduated from the inaugural class at Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine in Glendale, AZ, earning her Doctor of Dental Medicine. Today, she continues to be passionate about expanding her clinical skills and regularly attends SPEAR study clubs and Seattle study clubs to learn more about advanced techniques in the dental field. She is also a current member of the Arizona Dental Association.

Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?

Stack of books

Dr. Schnieder and her husband just had a sweet, cute baby girl named Laila in December of 2018! They also have two Welsh Corgis at home named Scooter and Roxie. When she isn’t busy at the dental office, you can usually find her attending her book club, doing yoga, and spending lots and lots of quality time with her brand-new baby. She is also a black belt in Tae Kwon Do!
