Valparaiso Orthodontic Practice Launches New Website

September 12, 2016

VALPARAISO, IN – A Valparaiso orthodontic practice recently unveiled a new website with user-friendly features and easy online scheduling options.

Orthodontic Affiliates, operated by Dr. Randy Schmidt, is a leading choice for all orthodontic services in northwest Indiana. The new website,, launched this summer and is compatible with all web browsers and mobile devices.

“We wanted our patients and local residents to have easy access to great information about our orthodontic services,” Dr. Schmidt said. “The new website accomplishes this through its sleek and uncluttered design and intuitive features.”

The new website has easy-to-use tools; detailed information about practice services; video testimonials from Orthodontic Affiliates patients; and convenient online patient forms. Site visitors can also find monthly blogs that include information about advantages of orthodontic treatment, orthodontic treatment tips or even news about orthodontics.

Dr. Schmidt and his practice partner, Dr. Tom Surber, also have written a book about 21st century orthodontics. The e-book, available for free download on the practice website, includes information about the newest orthodontic treatments available in dentistry.

“With a visit to our website, patients can learn about the ways in which they can work with us to change their smile,” Dr. Schmidt said. “The more patients can learn about their treatments, the more relaxed and confident they can be with the procedures.”

Orthodontic Affiliates is a regional state-of-the-art northwest Indiana practice that serves patients of all orthodontic needs and ages. The practice has locations across the northwest, including Munster, St. John, Portage, Merrillville, Lowell, Valparaiso and Michigan City. Patients can expect modern orthodontic care at Orthodontic Affiliates locations, as the practice has options that fit within any lifestyle.

The doctors also can correct bone development issues or resolve problems with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

Dr. Randy Schmidt is a lifelong Hoosier who graduated from Chesterton High School. He attended Indiana University in Bloomington for his undergraduate studies and was accepted into IU’s dental program after just three years. Dr. Schmidt graduated from dental school with honors in 1981 and was inducted into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society. His dental school professors also selected him for the Senior Operative Dentistry Award. He stayed at Indiana University to achieve his certificate in orthodontics in 1983, receiving his Master of Science in Dentistry the same year.
