Dr. Schaack has an easy-going personality that helps him to connect easily with children and parents. He has been happily married to Lisa for over 13 years and has four energetic young boys. Always smiling, it would seem Dr. Schaack is never “at work”. He has as much fun caring for kids’ teeth as he does playing ball, swimming, camping or catching bugs with his own boys. He loves pediatric dentistry!
