Trish Schminke, DDS
She’s baaaaaack! As some of you know, Dr. Schminke worked with Dr. Tu for 14 years as a dental hygienist prior to her acceptance into the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. The idea of returning to Design Dental and resuming treatment for the patients she dearly missed served as motivation when the going got tough.
While away, Trish received her BS in Biology from Mt. Mercy University and her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Iowa. Although no longer a hygienist, Trish still possesses a passion for preventive and periodontal care. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking, reading, bike riding and yoga.
Trish has always valued Dr. Tu’s practice philosophy and is extremely excited to return to the Design Dental team in order to resume care for patients existing and new. Trish is looking forward to providing you with compassionate, high quality dental care.
