When people want to look and feel good, we believe we have the privilege to guide them through this process. Our mission of providing only the highest quality dental care for our patients separates us from the purely insurance-based care that competes mostly on price. Through educating the community on quality dentistry and the latest techniques, we believe our patients receive a higher standard of care.

Dr. Schikowski attributes the success of his practice to his totally supportive dental team; the love and support of his wife, son and daughter; and his personal devotion to excellence in the field of dental health, one patient at a time.

Thirteen years ago I decided that I wanted to improve my smile. There were missing teeth and spaces, the ones I did have didn’t sparkle. I pulled out my telephone book and went to the yellow pages looking for a cosmetic dentist. There he was, Dr Eric Schikowski and Stow Dental. I called and made an appointment for a consultation. The staff and Dr Schikowski were amazing, they made me feel very comfortable. I explained why I was there and what I was looking for and a plan to improve my smile was in the works. The end result of all their hard work was I had a beautiful smile. When I am asked about my teeth I give out Dr Schikowski’s name and telephone number. The way a person feels about themselves shows when they have a beautiful smile, your confidence is beaming. Dr Schikowski and his staff do is change lives for the better. I love you all!!


Getting veneers at Stow Dental Group has been a wonderful experience. The procedure is relatively painless and the results are spectacular! Dr. Thompson and his entire staff are kind, caring and extremely professional. I can't stop smiling!

Trust, is the word that comes to mind when I think of Dr. Iati and his staff. Being a one of a kind patient and asking for a 'Masterpiece Smile' was no easy task. To top things off, I moved to Newport Coast, California in the middle of my procedure.

I could have easily selected another dentist and joined the Hollywood Stars, but I knew Dr. Iati had a mission that no other could accurately attempt to complete. It wasn't just slapping on veneers for a sparkling white smile. It was a complete adjustment of my bite. Even after Dr. Iati suggested we select a dentist in my area to help with the procedure, I refused and was willing to travel back and forth to accomplish our goal.

No other doctor or dentist has ever been as concerned about me as a patient and I was not about to give that up. He personally called me at home after each procedure; he would check up on me through email or a phone call just to see how I was feeling or if there was any change. When I was down and complaining, he would listen and help me through it.

Now, I feel it was well worth the wait. I have no more headaches or jaw pain, just that 'Masterpiece Smile' I requested when I first sat in his chair. Mission Accomplished! Thanks, Dr. Iati!!
