Dr. Paula J. Schmidt

Dr. Paula J. Schmidt grew up in the small town of Morrill, Nebraska. After graduating from dental school she moved to the Jackson area to create her first practice so she could offer residents high-quality care in many aspects of dentistry. Recognizing that specialty dental care often meant driving two or more hours to neighboring cities, she quickly made it a priority to expand her areas of expertise to offer her patients nearly every kind of oral care such as implants, orthodontics, and prosthodontics. Her commitment to continuing advanced education means she is always knowledgeable about the latest state-of-the-art technology, materials, treatments, and procedures in the industry. Her most recent training has been focused on Sleep and TMD Therapy. She is fascinated with the correlation between sleep and breathing disorders and whole body health.

Dr. Schmidt’s comprehensive, whole body and mouth approach is what distinguishes her practice and ensures her patients enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile that will last a lifetime. She looks forward to working with her team every day to improve the smiles and lives of the residents she shares the community with.

When she is not attending seminars to hone her skills or helping out in the community, Dr. Schmidt is very health conscious and can be found exercising with her husband, Dwayne, at their CrossFit gym. She has a soft spot for animals and enjoys fostering dogs as well as spending time with her own two dogs. She also enjoys hunting, hiking, and reading.

Dr. Michael J. Wine

Dr. Michael J Wine and his wife, Jane became permanent residents of Teton Valley in 2013, but have enjoyed a second home there since 2008. In February of 2014, after 30 years of owning his dental practice in Ohio, Dr. Wine joined Dental Care of Jackson Hole and Dental Care of Alpine, as a part time associate Doctor.

Dr. Wine began his career in medicine as a Pharmacist, having graduated from Ohio Northern University with a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy. Five years later, he graduated Cum Laude from the Ohio State University College of Dentistry. Dr. Wine is an accomplished Dentist, as well as being a leading educator in the field of Dental Pharmacology.

In their spare time, Dr. and Mrs. Wine love spending time outdoors enjoying all that the area has to offer. In the winter they ski and snowshoe. During the summer, they ride horses, hike and simply enjoy the area and their semi retirement.
