Dr. Nargiz Schmidt is a prosthodontist – a dentist who specializes in reconstructive, esthetic and implant dentistry.
Prosthodontics is one of nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. It is the dental specialty that encompasses the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of patients’ teeth to improve the oral function, comfort, appearance and health of their teeth when teeth are missing, infected, or when a patient wants an esthetic upgrade for their teeth.

In addition to the numerous awards for academic and clinical achievements in pharmacology, clinical dentistry and biochemistry, she devoted two years to private practice as a general dentist before making the decision to become a prosthodontist.
