Dr. Michael Schumacher, Columbus Dentist

“I began my career in general dentistry many years ago excited to help people maintain their oral health for a lifetime. Times, materials, expectations have changed, but I continue to treat each patient as I would wish to be treated; striving to deliver the best treatment value to each individual patient, based on their comfort level.”
