Meet Schmitt Dental’s Team Members
Dr. Schmitt chose to follow the example established by his late father and entered the dental profession after obtaining his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Louisville in 1985. His undergraduate degree came from U of L as well, while he was a diver on the swim team.
He owned a private practice for more than 23 years in Louisville, KY and thoroughly enjoyed the relationships he built there over the years. After selling his practice in Louisville, he most recently practiced in Savannah, GA for 2 years. He came to Clarksville in 2013 and acquired the practice of Dr. Blevins at 1692 Ft Campbell Blvd. He most recently acquired his second dentist office location at 2313 Rudolphtown Road in August of 2017. He is now a fully integrated part of the Clarksville community. Dr. Steve is an avid U of L Cardinals sports fan, attending as many games as possible, and he also enjoys boating, hunting, and traveling. He has two children; Abbey who lives in Louisville with his Grand-daughter Gracie, and a son Brad who lives in Tallahassee Florida.
Dr. Schmitt has dedicated his professional life to providing the highest level of care to his patients, placing a strong emphasis on getting to know each patient as an individual, believing the key to a successful doctor-patient relationship is genuine interest in and understanding of their needs. He believes the patients under his care deserve a thorough and careful evaluation, as well as complete understanding of their options.
He is a firm believer in “more than the minimum” in continued learning, having taken hundreds of hours of advanced training in dentistry, studying with many of the leading authorities in the dental profession. This commitment to learning and providing the most up-to-date methods have made him a much sought-after provider of cosmetic, restorative and sedation dentistry. His goal is to provide you the best dental care possible in a comfortable setting as a dentist in Clarksville, TN.
Dr. Sara Oh
Hello, I’m Dr. Sara Oh. I completed my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at University of TN College of Dentistry in 2015. I grew up in Franklin, TN but prior to that I have lived in South Korea, Philippines, and Sri Lanka. One good thing about living all over the world during your childhood is that you have friends all over the world! But I have happily called TN home since 2000.
My goal is to practice dentistry in a friendly and relaxed environment. I enjoy getting to meet patients and know them through the years so our team can provide personalized treatment experience for each individual.
I enjoy traveling, trying different cuisines, and the arts. During my spare time I enjoy taking on various DIY projects, photography, decorating, and practicing yoga! I am excited to be a part of the Schmitt Dental team and serve the Clarksville community!

Following residency Dr. Schmitt joined a private group practice in Northern Virginia where she spent several years practicing dentistry and was recognized as one of Northern Virginia’s 40 under 40.
