A native of New Orleans, Dr. Schulze attended the University of New Orleans as an undergraduate, and then went on to Louisiana State University School of Dentistry graduating in 1981. Prior to entering private practice, Dr. Schulze served a two year externship with the U.S. Public Health Service.

Throughout his career, Dr. Schulze always had a drive to become the best dentist he possibly could. He is a perfectionist and it shows, not only in his attention to detail, but also in his advanced training and continuing education. Staying at the forefront of his field was important to Dr. Schulze for the entirety of his dental career. In 1986 he began furthering his pursuit of excellence at the renowned Pankey Institute, as well as receiving advanced training at Misch International Implant Institute. He has also received training at the Las Vegas Institute where he recieved his advanced anterior aesthetics certificate, the Hornbrook Institute, the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, as well as at the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry. A true artist, Dr. Schulze endeavored toward dentistry that was both excellent in form + function and esthetically pleasing to both he and his patients.

Dr. Schulze always took pride in developing a trusting relationship with his patients so they could collaborate toward optimum dental health together. His successor at Island Tower Dentistry, Dr. Jonathan Van Dyke, takes this goal equally seriously.
Dr. Schulze has always made time to actively participate in the community. As a past President of the Collier County Dental Association, he was instrumental in establishing a dental assistant program at the Lorenzo Walker Vocational Training Facility for Collier County Schools. Dr. Schulze traveled to Guatemala with other Rotarian’s to help establish a dental clinic for orphans there. Dr. Schulze balances his passion for dental work with his love for his wife and their three children. They enjoy boating and exploring our beautiful Florida coastline.
Dr. Schulze never wanted to have the biggest practice, but the best, where superior dentistry is delivered with five star service and where doctor and patient work together to set goals and determine what is best for lasting dental health. Dr. Van Dyke carries on this mission wholeheartedly and can’t wait to bring Dr. Schulze’s amazing legacy of superior patient care into the future.
