He was accepted to the Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1988 and graduated with honors. fter graduation he attended the University of Cincinnati for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency where he was trained in all aspects of medicine and surgery. During residency, Dr. Schimmele studied many aspects of health care in depth including adult and pediatric anesthesia, emergency medicine, general surgery, family medicine and plastic surgery. After residency Dr. Schimmele had the honor of serving as the Fellow in the department of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery, Center for Tumor and Reconstructive Surgery under the direction of Dr. Robert E Marx and Dr. Eric R Carlson, two well known leaders in the field. During his tenure as Fellow he was immersed in the concepts and practice of treating benign and malignant pathology of the maxillofacial complex along with the reconstruction of complicated bone and soft tissue defects of the region. It was during his fellowship that he became trained in advanced procedures for some of the most difficult anatomic problems involving the face and jaws. He is happy to bring those skills to the region to provide the most advanced care to our residents. Service to the community is considered natural to the Schimmeles. Both Steve and Heather are very active in the community and regularly volunteer their time for various local charities. Board and committee positions at St Elizabeth Catholic grade school, Bishop Dwenger High School, the Fort Wayne South Bend Diocese, the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, the Carriage House and Matthew 25 have been some of their favorite experiences. All these organizations help to make our community better by supporting its people in a number of ways.
