A/Prof Paul Schneider enjoys the unique ability he has to contribute to the health, well-being and improved self esteem of so many people. He enjoys getting to know every patient and watching young patients "come out of their shell" as their appearance and comfort improve throughout orthodontic treatment.
After practicing orthodontics for almost 30 years, A/Prof Paul Schneider still loves coming to his clinic every day. "My father was a dentist, and I learnt from him the value of exceptional patient care. Each patient I see presents a different clinical challenge as well as an opportunity for a personal connection. I enjoy taking the time to know each person I look after, and giving them a positive orthodontic experience.
A commitment to educating the next generation of orthodontists led him to accept the role of Associate Professor and Head of Orthodontics at the University of Melbourne.
A/Prof Paul Schneider is active in the community and his practice supports local sporting teams and a junior choir, as well as a charity for disadvantaged and homeless youth.
