I was a new patient at Riverbend Dental Center. I was simply trying to find a new dentist since I was new to the area. I had seen his commercial on NOLA Marketplace. On the commercial, the dentist seems caring and professional. But don't let that fool you! First, I waited over an hour in the waiting room. I was then seated in the exam room where I had to wait another 45 minutes before being seen by Dr. Schmidt. When he finally came in and began his "exam" he instantly began talking about money and how much I was ready to spend. Being of very modest means, I explained I would like to opt for the cheapest of the treatment options. Then, he started a whole spiel about the treatment option that I chose was a "Chevy" and the treatment option that I should choose was a "Cadillac". Personally, I was slightly offended because due to my Chevy being parked right in the parking lot! During the visit, I had to use the restroom. I have to say, I've seen cleaner restrooms in gas stations! The toilet was horrifying! I refused to use it. He was verbally abusive to several of the staff who, by the way, were the ONLY highlight of my visit. They were very professional and experienced.

Dr. Schmidt did my initial check up. The second time I went in to get the work done, his assistant was the one to help me. The assistant did not wait for my mouth to get numb before working on my teeth. When I told him that I was still in pain he added more anesthetic and paced outside of the room impatiently for about 3 minutes before coming back in to continue working. I went everything he did on my teeth. My eyes shedding tears the whole time. Aside from that, he was annoyingly chewing gum the entire time he worked on my teeth. He got it done really fast. But I ended up having to return to the dentist office two days later because I was in more pain than what I had initially started with. Dr. Schmidt ended up having to redo everything that assistant did. Dr. Schmidt was so mean to his nurse that she quit in the middle of him working on my teeth. The nurse that replaced her asked my if I had noticed how mean Dr. Schmidt had been to her and shook her head. There was such a negative vibe in that office. I will never return and I do not recommend any one go to him! His office is not certified by the Better Business Bureau.

Possibly the worst experience at the dentist I have had. Should receive zero stars. It was my first time there and I will never go back. The staff at the desk and the hygienist were superb. However, I was kept waiting for almost an hour until the doctor could see me. When he did come to look at my teeth he was aggressive and didn't even wear gloves! To top it off, I saw him yell at and harass his employees. This is definitely a practice I would never recommend.

Dr. Glen Schmidt is a great dentist! So is Dr. Delahousaye. Patients can watch t.v. with headphones throughout the visit. Overhead speakers play contemporary, lyrical songs. The building is a typical, one-story, wooden uptown cottage with tracklights, hardwood floors, and windows everywhere. The employees are attentive, personable, and devoted to the patient's comfort.
