About Dr. Jerry and his staff:


Dr. Schonfeld was born in Bronx, NY in 1938. The family moved to Richmond, VA in 1948. After high school, he earned his BS degree from the University of Richmond and his DDS degree from the Medical College of Virginia (now VCU). He continued his education in the US Air Force from 1961-1963. Upon completion of his USAF time, he then opened his office in the Simonsdale section of Portsmouth,VA and has been there ever since.


The philosophy of the practice has always been to inject humor and caring into the relationship with patients to put them at ease and remove forever the fear of the dental office. The doctor and staff treat everyone like family. Patients are seen on time and treated one at a time. In addition to the usual numbing drugs they also use relaxing gas and relaxing oral medications. Our unique therapy dogs are available to sit in your lap during treatment.     


Dr. Schonfeld continues his education yearly in order to keep up to date with advances in dentistry. Patients' records and insurance are never placed on computers to ensure privacy and to ensure that all information is immediately available and not subject to computer failure or invasion.

His friendly staff always puts you at ease. From the moment you walk in the door, you are treated like family.
