John A. Schacherl, DDS
Dr. John Schacherl is a Wisconsin native who established this dental practice in Verona, Wisconsin in 1976. Dr. Schacherl is a graduate of Marquette University School of Dentistry. For more than 30 years, he and his staff have provided unsurpassed patient care.

Dr. Schacherl has completed hundreds of hours of post-graduate training, including course work in full-mouth reconstruction, orthodontics including Invisalign© and Damon© System Brackets, and dental implants. Dr. John Schacherl has been a trained CEREC© dentist for more than 10 years. He received his CEREC© training at the Scottsdale (AZ) Center for Dentistry, and did his training in dental implants with Dr. Arun K. Garg, in Chicago and the Dominican Republic. He is certified in the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique®, the minimally invasive scalpel and suture-free procedure for treating gum recession.

Most recently, he completed training with the America Association for Facial Aesthetics (AAFE) in the use of Botox® and Juvederm® for both cosmetic and therapeutic uses. If you grind your teeth (bruxism) or have even cracked a tooth or restoration as a result, talk with Dr. Schacherl about how Botox® can work to quiet masseter muscles and potentially spare your teeth and restorations from damage caused by bruxing. Ask, too, about whether Botox® may be an option to alleviate head, neck and facial pain, including migraines.

In 2009, Dr. Schacherl joined the team of Sharing Resources Worldwide (SRW). With the generosity of his staff, patients, and corporate sponsors, he opened a free dental clinic in Siguatepeque, Honduras, where he and his staff return twice yearly to provide dental care to children and adults. In 2012, Dr. Schacherl was honored by the American Dental Association for his humanitarian work. Dr. Schacherl is passionate in his attention to detail resulting in beautiful smiles for patients all around the world.

Dr. Schacherl is an avid cross-country skier, who has skied the American Birkebeiner marathon cross-country ski race in Hayward, WI since 1976. Dr. Schacherl also enjoys running, bicycling, and sailing.
