Dr. Schmidt met his wife during dental school and married her shortly after graduation. Mary Beth is a native of Chicago (she grew up in Elmhurst) and is a fellow IU. graduate. She is an avid runner and a former NCAA All-American track star. Today, most of her time is devoted to their four children; identical twins born November of 1997, their youngest daughter in April of 2001, and their son born June 3, 2009. Their decision to move to the north side of Chicago in late 1998 was an easy one. Callie, Kelsey, Courtney and Cole have lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins here, and they have always admired the area. They really enjoy exploring the coastline of Lake Michigan. In his spare time, Dr. Schmidt enjoys boating, sailing, swimming, cycling, and rollerblading.
Dr. Schmidt truly looks forward to meeting each of you and getting to know you as a neighbor.
