As some of Marco Island’s most respected dental professionals, Dr. Hermann J. Schulze, DDS and Dr. Josephine Perez, DMD have long been trusted dental resources, fielding countless questions about dentistry and oral health. Over the years, Dr. Schulze and Dr. Perez have learned that patients treasure their smile and are eager to protect it.

That is why we encourage you to post your questions or remarks online, as well as bring them up at your next visit. We also hope that you will discuss these topics with your family and friends, so that they too can benefit.
