Five Star Patient Experiences Happen Here

If you’re new to the Parrish area or looking for a dentist that can serve your preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry needs in one comfortable, judgment-free environment, we’d love to welcome you to our office! Our patient-focused practice customizes your care according to your needs and goals—we’ll never recommend services we don’t feel are in your best interest. We’re here to alleviate pain, offer sustainable solutions, and help you achieve a smile you’ll love showing off.

If this is your first appointment with us, please let us know if you would like to hear about our sedation options.


What to expect during your first appointment

Your first appointment will take 60-90 minutes that includes a comprehensive exam done by Dr. Schnur. The goal of your first appointment is to establish a baseline. While your dental and medical information is imperative to treating you well, we also spend time getting to know you. We believe understanding your dental history, fears, desires, hopes, and stressors are just as important as your cavity risk. We create and environment that is open, honest, and non-judgmental so you feel confident you are getting the precision dental care you deserve.

If you are ready to get started, we make online scheduling easy.

He and his skilled team will complete:

  • Dental history review
  • Medical history review
  • Digital x-rays
  • Diagnostic imaging
  • Oral cancer screening

New Patient Forms

When you visit us, you can expect us to listen to and answer your questions—and if you think of more later (doesn’t everyone do that?), don’t hesitate to get in touch.

  • Based on the exam, findings, and your conversation about the report, Dr. Schnur will outline and recommend treatment options
  • Coordinating and scheduling appointments as well as payment and financing options will be discussed with our Treatment Coordinator.

Do You Take My Dental Insurance?

  • Florida Smile Design is a fee-for-service practice, which means
  • Dr. Richard Schnur is not contracted with any insurance companies, but
  • If you have dental insurance, we are happy to file claims with your insurance provider on your behalf!
  • Once your insurance company processes the claim, they send their reimbursement directly to you (the patient).

Why Don’t You Take Dental Insurance?

  • Many dentists contract with insurance providers to expand patient volume, which forces overbooking and results in less time spent with each patient.
  • Dr. Schnur has practiced dentistry for more than 20 years providing individualized care to one patient at a time. He found that contracting with insurance companies simply wouldn’t allow him to do so and continue to meet and exceed the standards of care he wants to provide you.
Flexible Financing

The Care You Need is Within Reach

At Florida Smile Design, we understand one of the biggest concerns patients have is whether they’ll be able to afford the dental care they need. If you need assistance paying for dental care, we accept payment through CareCredit®. The application process is simple, approval is instant, and you can pay your balance in affordable monthly installments that fit your budget and lifestyle.

CareCredit

GreenSky® works differently than most other healthcare financing options available today by approving patients for a loan rather than a credit card. GreenSky does not charge loan origination fees or penalize patients for early prepayment. They also offer a wide range of payment plans to choose from. The application process is simple and loan approval decisions are made (on average) in under a minute.
