About Us

Lisa Schnell, DDS

Dr. Schnell earned her DDS at Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1985 after completing undergraduate studies at IU in Bloomington. Since then, she has pursued postgraduate education, earning well beyond the state’s required number of continuing education credits each year. Dr. Schnell also attended the world-renowned Scottsdale Center for Dentistry where she took advanced courses in aesthetic restorative dentistry.

After practicing in the Crystal River area for nearly 20 years, Dr. Schnell opened her own dental office, Signature Dental Care, in early 2009. She serves patients of all ages with contemporary family and cosmetic dentistry. As a member of the American Dental Association and West Coast Florida Dental Association, Dr. Schnell is a vested member of the professional dental community. Her favorite professional experience comes when a fearful patient overcomes their anxiety and embraces comfortable, rewarding dentistry.

Originally from Indiana, Dr. Schnell is married and has two adult children, FSU Graduates, and a grandson who lights up her life. When she isn’t creating sensational smiles, she enjoys scrapbooking, spending time with her family, reading, and traveling to cooler climates.
