Our History

Dr. Schindler and his wife, Lynn, opened Schindler Family Dentistry in August of 1979 on the corner of 3rd & Boulevard.  Many of the people that came into the practice during those first 10 years, remain loyal patients today.

The practice then moved to Northbrook Mall for the next 15 years. In 2004, due to growth and the need to expand to add another doctor, Schindler Family Dentistry moved to its present location at 210 W Century Avenue.  In June of 2007, Dr. Katie Stewart joined the practice, and in January of 2010 she became a partner, and Schindler Family Dentistry became Schindler & Stewart Family Dentistry.

The past 10 years have seen substantial growth and expansion in the clinic.  In September of 2014, Dr. Steven Deisz, D.M.D. joined the practice as an associate and has been a great asset to this quickly growing dental practice.

Meet the Dentists

Robert Schindler, D.D.S.

Dr. Robert Schindler, along with his wife, Lynn, opened Schindler Family Dentistry in 1979.  Dr. Bob was raised in McClusky, ND.  He did his undergraduate studies at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND.  Dr. Bob then attended Creighton University in Omaha, NE and received his D.D.S. in 1979.

Dr. Bob enjoys the variety that a day of general dentistry brings.  Treating all aspects of his patients, young and old, has brought him great satisfaction.

Dr. Bob has stayed very active in the church he attends, Grace Point. He has worked in all areas of church ministry from 2-3 yr olds – children’s ministry – teens, as well as serving as an Elder.

Dr. Bob’s interests have always involved the outdoors.  Time spent hunting, fishing and working with his two dogs at the “hobby farm” are his idea of a great day away from the office. Dr. Bob also enjoys traveling.  His wife, Lynn, and daughter, Mikaela, are always willing companions.

In 2013 she was honored with the “New Dentist of the Year” award by the NDDA, and in 2015 was named one of the Bismarck Tribune’s “40 under 40” professionals.

In her free time, Dr. Stewart enjoys spending time with her wonderfully supportive husband, Nathan, and her three beautiful, but spunky daughters, Braelyn, Jaedyn and Ashtyn.

Dr. Steve enjoys the variety that general dentistry provides. He is eager to learn and constantly looking for CE courses to continue to grow his dental knowledge, having already completed a 300 hour course on dental implants before graduating dental school.

Dr. Steve is very excited to be back in his hometown where he enjoys the year-round outdoor activities North Dakota has to offer. He enjoys exercising, playing music, and spending time with his wife, Jill, and their son, Benjamin.  They enjoy traveling to visit friends & family, or staying home with their dog, Kirby and cats, Joey & Stella.

I have been using Dr. Schindler and Dr. Stewart Family dentistry for over 25 years. My experiences have always been very good, no matter what I needed to have done from cleaning my teeth, to filling cavities and getting crowns! 

~ Hannelore D

Most people have terrible memories of going to the dentist, myself included. Each time I visit Schindler & Stewart Dentistry here in Bismarck, I am welcomed with a smiling face. The professionalism and honest approach and passion Dr. Katie Stewart has, makes me feel so comfortable when lying back in the awesome massage chair with a bright light shining down on me, mouth wide open…who else can make something like that feel “comfortable”. It’s been years since I have seen a dentist for the fear of unprofessional people with their hands in my mouth. I can promise you, I will never wait that long again thanks to Dr. Katie and her staff, you truly are amazing!!
