Meet Dr. Dylan Schneider

Changing Lives, One Smile and One Person at a Time

Orthodontics has been my calling since I was a teenager with braces. I realized the tremendous impact an orthodontist can have as I watched my own transformation. Being able to smile with confidence stays with you throughout your life, whether you’re smiling for the prom, senior portraits, wedding pictures, or a job interview. Knowing you look your best is a huge confidence boost, and people can tell when you’re really happy.

One of the best things about being a local orthodontist is having time to really get to know my patients. I’m interested in their activities and love hearing updates about their latest adventures and successes. Because orthodontic care works for all ages, I’m surrounded by a dynamic group of people. Each person has stories to share and we’re always talking and laughing.

There’s no feeling that compares to taking off a person’s braces and seeing the joy on their face as they look in the mirror and see that they’ve acquired an amazing smile! I cannot imagine anything more rewarding than being an orthodontist!

Chesapeake Orthodontics

Our team members genuinely care about each patient who comes to our practice. They do everything possible to ensure people feel welcome, at home, and engaged during visits. By being warm and friendly, encouraging questions, and meeting each person’s cosmetic dentistry needs, our team creates a positive, comfortable environment.

Education and Continuing Education

I completed my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. Then I enrolled at the University of Michigan, where I completed my orthodontic residency.

I have a passion for treating patients using advanced, aesthetic techniques, including clear braces and Invisalign® clear aligners. These treatments enable people to maintain a confident smile throughout orthodontic care without anyone knowing they’re in treatment.

By taking a range of continuing education courses in cosmetic dentistry, I stay at the leading edge of advancements in the specialty. This ensures my patients receive the best care while achieving their new smile!

Beyond the Office

Spending time with my wife Laura and our young daughter and son is a priority when I’m not caring for patients. I love being outside and traveling, and am a huge football and basketball fan, especially when cheering on the Michigan State teams!

Helping Others

I co-chaired the 2016 Southern Maryland Mission of Mercy in Waldorf. As a local orthodontist, this was very important to me, and we were able to provide much-needed dental care to more than 800 underserved people! These types of events can make a huge difference: they relieve people of dental pain and allow them to get back to enjoying life.

Our Patients Love Us

“Both of my sons are patients there and actually enjoy going to see Dr. Hao. He is very easy going and made my children feel very at ease. The job he did on their teeth was exceptional, which was my number one priority when taking them there. But the real bonus was how nice and approachable Dr. Hao and his staff are. He always took the time to meet with me and explain what he was doing and answer my questions.”

“Dr. Schneider is the best!!! I went for an appointment that actually wasn't at that time. He gladly threw us right in the schedule with no issue, did my daughters check-up and we went on our way!! Absolutely thee best around!!”

“Dr Hao is the GREATEST doctor you could ever ask for! He has done an amazing job on my oldest daughter's phase one! We were so impressed and couldnt wait to send our youngest to him!!! He is wonderful with my girls and our family loves him!!!”
