He is committed to to thoroughly educating his patients on the state of their oral health and looks to incorporate conservative procedures whenever possible.

Dr. Schuiling was raised in Aurora, Colorado but currently resides in St. Charles, Illinois with his wife, son, and daughter. He is proud to join Dr. Dean Lodding as a member of the Smile for Life Dental team. As a child, Dr. Schuiling was interested in science and art.

Today, Dr. Schuiling utilizes his knowledge and experience to enhance oral function and create aesthetically pleasing results from the many treatments he performs.

In 2005, Dr. Schuiling received his undergraduate degree from Hope College in Holland, Michigan. Following his graduation, he went on to study at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. There he earned his DDS degree in 2012 and continued on to complete a General Practice Residency at Loyola University Medical Center. During this time, he underwent advanced training in general dentistry and developed a strong foundational knowledge for cosmetic and restorative techniques.

Dr. Lodding and Dr. Schulling are so friendly and knowledgeable! My kids are happy after their checkups, which is hard to beat. The staff are welcoming and helpful.
