Our Staff

Denise – Dental Assistant

My name is Denise. I started here in 2004 but I have 20 years of experience. As a matter of fact, Vivian (the receptionist) and I went to dental assisting school together. I am married and have two children. I love the beautiful location of this practice. The patients that I have met are really great and really seem to enjoy coming here! I have learned different techniques from Dr. Schwedfeger and I am impressed with his enthusiasm for dentistry. Assisting Dr. Matt is fun too! It is a really laid back, fun atmosphere. The staff is great and have all been here forever. There is little to no turnaround here. I am glad to have found this dental team and I’m proud to be a part of it.

Dorothy – Business Manager

Hi! My name is Dorothy, also known as Dee. I began my career with Dr. Schwedfeger in 1987 with a background in insurance. I had no dental experience whatsoever. Thankfully, Dr. Schwedfeger had enough faith in me to give me the opportunity to learn – and that I have! I am now the Business Manager and I love being part of the “Village Smiles Family”. I also have a wonderful family of my own: a great husband and three grown children and a beautiful new grandaughter who lights up my life!

Vivian – Staff Manager

My name is Vivian. I have been with Dr. Schwedfeger since 1985! I joke that that is half my life, but it is! We are very close-knit and I can’t imagine doing anything else. He is like a brother to me, and the girls here are awesome. Dr. Schwedfeger is very friendly, approachable and a really nice guy. I literally watched Dr. Matt grow up! I have thought that since day one. I have become very close to many of the patients and I find humor to put them at ease. I started out as his assistant and after many titles and transitions, I am now the Patient Care Coordinator. Dorothy and I have been here the longest. We sit side-by-side every day at the front desk and are always here to greet you and help with all your dental needs. She is one of my very best friends outside of Village Smiles, too. Call for an appointment today! You will love this place – I guarantee it!

"Ever since I was a child, I was embarrassed by my smile. The best thing I've ever done for myself is to have veneers done at Village Smiles. Your first impression is your smile - I love mine now." -- Katie F. ~ Pittsford, NY
"After being hesitant about having veneers, I finally went forward and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. I continue to receive compliments on my smile. Dr. Schwedfeger and his staff were great. I just wish I had the veneers done sooner!!" -- Brad K. Rochester, NY
"People comment on how great my teeth look all of the time. You have turned a self-proclaimed “ugly duckling” into a beautiful, confident swan, and thank you just doesn’t seem to be enough." -- Heather G. ~ Pittsford, NY
"Dr. Schwedfeger is an artist in his trade who truly cares about his patients. He did laser surgery to raise my daughters gum line. She was thrilled with the results and kept mentioning how amazed she was that it didn't hurt. She hasn't stopped smiling since!" -- Wendy D. East Rochester, NY
"I can’t thank you for all you have done for me. My new teeth look and feel great! I don’t think I have smiled this much in years!! Your staff and your work will always get the highest recommendations from me." -- Chris P. ~ Penfield, NY
