With the monies I paid to preserve my
teeth I could have bought a lot of nice things, but over the years,
most of these things would have been gone or forgotten. Yet, I still
have my teeth and a beautiful smile which most people tell me is my
best asset. I Believed it when I had most of the work done and I
believe it even more today that these monies were the most meaningful
monies I ever spent!
Hi! My name is Carol Nelson and it is a real pleasure for me to let
everyone know what a wonderful dentist Dr. Sanford Schwartz is. I
especially appreciate his, "We can always do something" attitude.
When I first went to Dr. Schwartz almost ten years ago, I didn’t think
much, if anything, could be done to save my teeth. I hadn’t taken
care of them for many years. All I knew was that I didn’t want to be
For a long time, I had thought of finding a dentist and even went to
one, but he painted such a negative picture that I gave up. Then I
read about Dr. Schwartz. He had graduated in the top five percent of
his class from New York University and upon graduating had been an
instructor there. I liked what I read and made an appointment.
I found Dr. Schwartz and his staff to be kind and caring. One of the
reasons I had put off going to the dentist was that I was embarrassed
because my mouth was such a mess. Dr. Schwartz and his staff put me
at ease immediately. My first visits consisted of different ways of
handling the work to be done. I couldn’t believe it, I actually had
We’ve all heard it said, “You get what you pay for.” I still remember
my husband’s disbelief when I told him the costs involved. Needless
to say, Dr. Schwartz doesn’t come cheap. Even payment was made easier
because of the plan that his staff arranged for me. With the monies I
paid to preserve my teeth I could have bought a lot of nice things,
but over the years, most of these things would have been gone or
forgotten. Yet, I still have my teeth and a beautiful smile which
most people tell me is my best asset. I believed it when I had most
of the work done and I believe it even more today that these monies
were the most meaningful monies I ever spent!
One thing I especially like about Dr. Schwartz is that he is always
available to his patients. Once when he was on vacation, I called the
office and heard that the office was closed. Before I knew it, he was
calling me to see what was happening. As I write this I can’t recall
the reason for my call, but I do remember his timeliness in returning
my call. Another thing I especially like about him is that he is
constantly learning and improving his dentistry knowledge and skills
and updating his equipment. His is a state-of-the-art office.
Now, almost ten years later, I schedule an appointment every three
months for maintenance care. I’ve read that most people hate going to
the dentist, but not me. I really enjoy it. It’s like visiting old
friends in a warm and relaxing environment.
I thank Dr. Schwartz for his care and for giving me the opportunity to
share my message with you.
I used to be self-conscious about my smile. I now consider
it one of my greatest strengths.
Thanks for helping build my
I feel much healthier now that my teeth are fixed. I can
People compliment me about my teeth all the time. Dr.
Schwartz did a wonderful job!
I found Dr. Schwartz soon after I was engaged to be married. He
was able to eliminate the insecurities that I had with my smile. I was
confident on my wedding day and my only regret was that I waited so
long to find him! Thanks.
Before Invisalign I used to hesitate to show my teeth. Now, thanks
to Dr. Schwartz, I get endless compliments on my “nice” smile!

Thanks for endless hours of pain & torture – for all the “fun” working
with these eye teeth. But, most of all – thanks for giving me my smile
back! Bless. . .
Dr. Schwartz & Staff,
A warm thanks to you, Dr. Schwartz, and those who assisted you during
my recent visit to your office. All of you made “the dreaded visit to
the dentist’s office” an almost unstressful, but painless visit. I
appreciate the attention from all of you.
Thank you and all of your staff for the lovely houseplant. It really
brightened up my day. Also, thank you for the wonderful work you have
done and are going to do in creating a better smile for me. I can’t
tell you how many compliments I have received just with the
temporaries on. I can’t wait to see the end result. Also thank you and
your staff for working me in on an emergency basis. I really
appreciate all you have done for me.
With sincere appreciation for your kindness. We both thank
you so much for helping us out at the last minute!!
Jessica and Carlos
Dear Dr. Schwartz and Staff,
How surprised and pleasant Russ was to receive the beautiful plant! It
is gorgeous and is on our sun porch where we can enjoy its’ beauty and
your thoughtfulness. I know you all understand Russ’s condition and I
do so much appreciate your patience with him. Again, thanks so much to
a very compassionate dental group. You’re great!
Dear Lee & Dr. Schwartz,
There are no words to describe how much I appreciate Dr. Schwartz’
doing my very much needed and desired dental work. I never thought, in
my wildest dreams, I would be able to have it done. It is truly a
dream wish come true for me. I used to watch “Extreme Make-over” while
knowing I definitely needed dental work in all areas of my mouth. I
always knew if I could have anything done – it would be my dental work
the very first thing! Now, even more than ever, I want to represent
your office in the very best way possible. To finally have my
treatment done makes me so humbled. I give you both my heartfelt
I always appreciate your fine service and caring
Dear Dr. Schwartz,
What a surprise on Saturday when a beautiful green plant was delivered
to my house! It was such a kind and thoughtful gesture! I found the
perfect spot in our breakfast nook and it looks lovely there. Thanks!
I always appreciate your fine service and caring manner. Your
hygienist, Michele, has become a good friend! Thank you again for the
handsome plant and excellent service. You’re tops!

you for restoring my smile and self esteem. You are the best!
My first visit to the office of Dr. Sandy Schwartz was for a dental
interview. When first entering the reception room I felt at home
immediately; it reminded me of my grandmother’s home complete with an
antique sewing machine identical to the one my grandmother taught me
to sew. The receptionist was very pleasant as she handed me an
During my interview I had the opportunity to meet Dr.
Schwartz. His calm, caring, personality made me feel right at home. My
immediate thought was, "This is the type of office I am looking for."
For years I was embarrassed to smile because I had
spacing between my lower front teeth. During the interview all I could
think of was, "Oh Lord, here I am in the dental office of a great
dentist and I have this embarrassing situation." To my surprise, Dr.
Schwartz made me feel comfortable and didn’t say a word about my
To make this story short, yes, I was hired for the
position of administrative assistant/insurance coordinator in his
office and have been a part of a wonderful team for almost five years
where I have seen and experienced for myself some of the best
dentistry known to man.
As a patient, I was treated with the same
comprehensive treatment as all patients receive…nothing but the best
by an office staff that practices their office philosophy of,
"Providing the very best dental care available while treating all
patients as members of our own family."
Dr. Schwartz was sensitive to my embarrassment of
having spaces between my lower teeth and one day said, ‘We can take
care of that spacing for you by placing veneers on your lower teeth.’
After discussing this with my husband, he said, ‘Honey, go for it!’ I
had the six teeth prepared for veneers, with no local anesthetic; yes,
pain free! And now I can proudly say, "Thank you, Dr. Schwartz, for
restoring my smile and confidence/self esteem. You are the best! I am
thankful to be a part of your dental team."
To my wonderful boss and team members,
Thank you for the great care that I received during my dental
appointment. It was nice to be in the chair for a change. I felt
very comfortable and I can truly appreciate what great dentistry our
patients experience first hand. It’s a true pleasure to be part of

Thank you for
taking great care of my teeth, they look better now than ever.
Dear Dr. Schwartz
When first entering your office I couldn’t help but notice the décor
was like visiting the home of a close friend; warm and inviting; not
the starchy look.
Then I was greeted
by a receptionist who stood to greet me, shook my hand when saying,
“Hello”, introduced herself and welcomed me to the office. “Wow!
This was the first time I was ever greeted so warmly in a
While seated in
your reception room I noticed how friendly your office staff was to
the patients. I even overheard, Stephanie, speaking to a patient,
offering him a discount for paying in full for his services that
day. A discount for payment in full in a dental office! I never
heard of this before.
At the time of
meeting Dr. Schwartz, during my exam, I sensed that he was listening
to me and truly cared about not only my teeth, but the health of my
gums and even gave me a cancer screen test! Coming from the North,
this was a first for me. I had never heard of a cancer screen test
of the mouth! Sure, in the past I had x-rays, my teeth cleaned, etc.
but never anything like this! The thoroughness of the exam, seeing
my x-rays on a screen in front of me as Dr. Schwartz explained my
needed treatment, gave me the feeling of confidence that I had
finally found myself a good dentist.
Thank you for
taking great care of my teeth, they look better now than ever. My
wife was so accustomed to not seeing my upper and lower teeth
because I had ground them down to nothing but stubs, that she feels
she is finally seeing my teeth for the first time in the thirty plus
years that we have been married. I now look forward to getting my
first implant! I would highly recommend you to anyone in need of a
truly great dentist.

-Michelangelo (1475-1564), the famous Italian artist-
Dr. Schwartz and Staff,
“I was that piece of marble, while Dr. Schwartz was the great artist
responsible for the sculpting. In my rare case, which is long behind
me, I had been living with the idea that neither man nor machine
could help me. I was wrong. After many years of searching for the
assistance that I required, I almost just gave up. Then by sheer
word of mouth, a family friend mentioned Family, Implant and
Cosmetic Dentistry in Brandon. We can all agree that if somebody
mentions something by word of mouth, it must be worth a look at. So,
I decided to check it out.
Upon arrival to the office I noticed the wonderful adornments and
furnishings within the waiting room, similar to sitting in your own
family room. I was treated with the utmost care and professionalism.
I never had to sign in and was never asked who I was. I was always
addressed by my first name. The staff shared stories about their own
lives, which made me feel even more comfortable. As dreaded as one
might think that going to the dentist is, I enjoyed the trips.
During procedures, I can’t even count how many times I was asked if
I was comfortable or if I was okay! Unknowingly, I was even given a
great tasting smoothie after a long visit; they anticipated that I
would be hungry! The little things that they did for me, really
helped. I soon considered everyone in the office as if they were
part of my own family.
Dr. Schwartz has all the characteristics of a savant. He attended
one of the top dentistry schools in the nations, NYU. While
practicing in New York, he became an instructor at NYU as well. He
never stops his education process. As I am writing this he is
currently becoming certified in the use of up to date anesthetic
processes. His office may look and feel as comfortable as home, but
it is filled with the most up to date technological advances
currently available in dentistry. The list of qualifications goes on
and on, really! It just boggles me as to how he remains so humble
with all his experience; when my previous dentist seeking endeavors
were on the opposite end of the spectrum of humility and comfort. I
was even able to contact him at his home, by cell phone, for
guidance way past the hours of closing, being I was in Nevada at the

relatively shy person, it was breath taking and I didn’t really know
how to react or what to say, in fact, all I did unknowingly was
smile even greater.
Thank You! From the bottom of my heart to Dr. Schwartz and all his
My dentist said, ‘that is, without question, the best bone
graft I have ever seen!
“Dear Dr. Sandy and Nancy,
You may remember me (the Aussie with the cracked tooth and in pain)
visiting your rooms in Brandon during last October. The tooth could
not be saved and so you removed it and installed a bone graft.
Whilst having a tooth extracted can never be described as a
‘pleasant’ experience, I must say that your considerate attention,
gentleness and professionalism made the whole process surprisingly
smooth and painless. Also, your taking considerable time to discuss
the matter with me made my decision easy and alleviated any
had another pleasant surprise today when I visited my own dentist
here in Australia. I intended to discuss the installation of an
implant to substitute the extracted tooth. As part of the
consultation my dentist x-rayed the site and was very surprised at
how good it looked. The graft had completely filled the socket and
had ‘taken’ solid bone. My dentist said, ‘that is, without question,
the best graft I have ever seen.’
So, Sandy and Nancy, a sincere - Thank You.”

Testimonial With A Smile
By Leslie Fraze
"My experience with Invisalign was like a dream come true. In less than two years, my teeth are straight, and most people didn't even know I was wearing the clear plastic retainers. Dental assistant, Brenda, kept me motivated throughout the virtually painless process, and I loved my hygienist, Diane's comment: ‘I almost didn't recognize you! Did you buy a new mouth?' My husband has been very supportive throughout. He was surprised I'd waited so long to get my teeth straightened, but they didn't have Invisalign years ago. My friends tell me I look years younger, and my husband can't keep his EYES off me! Many thanks to Dr. Schwartz, Brenda and the rest of the great staff for such a great experience - and terrific results."
"Adrienne was wonderful – very caring, patient, concerned. Diane is always
outstanding – what a wonderful part of your team."
"This office is spectacular? I am amazed at the friendly atmosphere; everyone is
professional and I have always referred you! Thanks."
"This is the best
dentist I have ever been to. Thanks."
"I was tired of my
prior dentist putting me in pain so I decided to change after 18 years. I’m so
glad I did. I love the updated technology you use and the doctor’s skills. I
now have no more thoughts of pain when I hear the word ‘Dentist!’ Wahoo!!!"
"Just keep smiling as you were when I first walked in your office. Thank each of
you for making me feel so much love and as if you had known me all my life. May
God bless each of you."
Lizzie M. Wright
"This will now become my Family Dentist."
amazing! Very caring, knowledgeable and I always feel ‘at home’ not at a
dentist’s office. Dr. Schwartz is great and you can tell he loves what he does."
"I appreciate the
fact that the staff always takes time for me; I am their only concern when
seated in the chair."
"I have always had excellent service. Please keep up with the good work in
staying abreast of all of the latest in information. I appreciate knowing that
my overall health is just as important to the staff as it is to me."
"Staff is friendly
and caring. Sandra Caballero, hygienist does quality work; office is clean and
homey. Dr. Schwartz is interested and sensitive to his patients needs."
"Dr. Schwartz and his diverse staff run a first class operation. There is no
other dental office that I would rather go to."
"A visit to Dr. Schwartz's dental office is like a visit with family. From
the moment you walk into his office you feel the family atmosphere. In fact, the
only thing more beautiful and warm than his waiting area is his staff."
Excellent, As Always!
"Dr. Schwarz and his team are wonderful. I feel lucky that I found them
when I moved to FL. They amazingly make your dental visits very pleasant and
painless! I would highly recommend them to anyone."
"Diane is very knowledgeable. I have taken the information she supplied me
about oropharyngeal exercises, found her original article and researching more
about it in my own field of oral motor and tounge movement. Thanks for your
motivation to research the subject Diane."
"I love going to this dentist. They are awesome in the care they give to
fraidy cats like me. I have very sensitive teeth, and don't like going to the
dentist. The package of nitrous, earplugs, and a massage is a very calming
experience. Sandra was the bestest! She even knew when my massage would stop,
she would stop what she was doing just to turn it back on. Don't change a thing.
I come to your office just for all of that."
"It is always good to know I am going to be treated with respect and you
are looking out for the best interest of my teeth."
SMILE, you’re in great hands!
"As a public speaker, my appearance and especially my SMILE are of utmost importance to me. Trusting that smile into the hands of another can be a very nerve-wrecking event. I had previously heard great reviews of Dr. Schwartz and his incredible staff, but none of them did justice to the unbelievable experience I had! Dr. Schwartz and all personnel were extremely friendly, educated (and informed me of what they were doing during the entire process), patient, and gentle, constantly asking if I had any concerns or questions. Furthermore, inter-staff relations also really impressed me as each employee communicated with their coworkers in an unusually polite manner filled with please’s and thank you’s. The office was beautifully decorated and comfortable and far exceeded (my already high) sanitary standards. My teeth have never looked more beautiful or felt more clean. In my latest visit, Dr. Schwartz repaired a chip in my front tooth that had nagged and haunted me for some time. Honestly, the repaired tooth looks better than it ever had pre-injury. Thank you Dr. Schwartz and Company. There is a reason why I drive over half an hour and past countless other dental practices to see you! There is no one better with whom to trust your pearly whites! (And if they are not pearly, they can get you there too!)"
"The staff at Dr. Schwartz' office is absolutely wonderful and reassuring. They do terrific work and make me feel at ease. I am a new patient, but have already recommended them to numerous other people."
"Dr. Schwartz is great and so is Brenda, the make you feel so comfortable and you forget where you are at. I have never felt any pain while any work was being done. This is the best Dentist that I have ever been too."
Thanks to Dr. Schwartz
"Thanks to Dr. Schwartz and his wonderful staff for taking good care of me each time I visit for a checkup or a treatment. I actually look forward to my dental apt. when I used to be in a state of fear and anxiety before becoming a patient at Dr. Schwartz office. Thank you Dr. Schwartz and all the very professional staff."
"My husband and I went for a consult regarding Invasilign. Dr. Schwartz and his staff were very informative and able to answer all of our questions. We made a decision and look forward to continued visits to improve me smile!"
Same Day Crown
"I never really want a trip to the dentist, but Dr. Schwartz always goes out of his way to put me at ease. He even offered me laughing gas to help relieve anxiety, but it wasn't even necessary because I never felt a thing! I really feel comfortable in his office, and his people (Nick and Nancy this time) are very professional and personable. The new Sirona CEREC machine formed my new permanent crown while I waited -- no temporary crown or return visit! I could not be happier. Thank you, Dr. Schwartz, for your dedication to a top-notch, professional clinic."
"Dr Schwartz and his staff are wonderfully professional, friendly and make me and my children feel at home. My visits are always like visiting with old friends. I have recommended several friends to Dr Schwartz and to Sandra Caballero and they have thanked me profusely!!!"
Dr. Schwartz and his staff have been awesome
"Dr. Sandy and staff have been awesome. I broke a tooth on New Years’ Eve and called the office on Wednesday and they were able to fit me in on Thursday afternoon. I commend this group of talented people in the way they have taken care of me despite my phobia of dentists. My experience with this group has been so positive that I have been able to get the work done that was greatly needed. My implants are a wonderful improvement in the way I feel about myself. I am a walking testament to Dr. Sandy and his staff."
"Excellent experience! Dr. Schwartz and his staff treated me with utmost professionalism and highest standard of care. I am truly impressed and grateful that his office will be caring for my family. Thank you Dr. Schwartz!"
"As usual, my dental office experiences are always pleasant and the staff makes you feel like family. My visits with Diane are very professional and she provides a wealth of information that has helped me take care of my teeth and my wellbeing as a whole. During this last visit, I had another doctor appointment afterwards and the staff was able to get me in and out in time for me to arrive at the second appointment on time. Keep up the good job!"
"Dr. Schwartz was recommended to me back in 2005 and I have regularly seen him since then. He and his entire staff are always very friendly and knowledgeable and very pleased with their services. I highly recommend him."
"Professional service by a very professional team, and there attention to their patients’ needs and details are second to none. Dr.Schwartz runs a very well-oiled machine, and you get that feeling when he walks into the room."
"Dr, Schwartz and his team are very friendly, caring and made me feel extremely comfortable throughout the procedure. The care provided by Dr. Schwartz, Brenda and Nancy was excellent. The also provided excellent care to my husband and four of my children as well during their visits. Thank you!"
"Consistently great service at your practice. My only suggestion is that you offer laser hair removal and pedicure during service! Imagine, a clean mouth and clean upper lip as well!!! Brought in my 89 year old mother and she was very impressed...a wonderful review from her since she is the world's biggest scaredy-cat (which is where I get that trait from)."
"I am the biggest dental phobe. I am so happy to have had the positive experience yesterday. I'm thrilled with the way my teeth look! Dr Schwartz takes his time makes you feel totally comfortable and it was PAIN FREE!! Thank you so much Dr Schwartz."
Warm and friendly
"As always the office experience is pleasant. The staff warm and friendly. My visit for cleaning with Sandra very professional as well as caring. I found that with diligent regular cleanings my gums have improved 100%. Thank you Sandra"
