Fred Schilling, DDS
Skyway Dental Clinic Founder

Dr. Schilling has been practicing dentistry for over 35 years. His philosophy on dentistry springs from the Latin meaning of doctor, which is teacher. Dr. Schilling believes in helping his patients understand how to achieve and keep a great smile, with the best treatment possible. He also believes that in every good dentist is an artist ready to create beauty on a canvas of a different type. Dr. Schilling practices painless dentistry using state-of-the-art tools and procedures.

Dr. Schilling’s interest in dentistry began in 1975 during his last year in the US Army, where he was stationed in Germany. He worked on base at the dental clinic and soon realized he had found his future career. Dr. Schilling graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry as a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society and opened Skyway Dental Clinic in 1982.

Dr. Schilling is a member of the American Dental Association, the Minnesota Dental Association, the Downtown Seattle Study Club, and in 2010 he became a Diplomate of the Academy of Clinical Sleep Disorder Disciplines to diagnose and provide care for patients with Sleep Apnea.

In his free time, Dr. Schilling enjoys spending time with his family at their cabin up north, oil painting, landscaping, and wood carving.

“Seeing the positive influence I can have with my patients is what drives my passion for my profession and my passion for dentistry grows deeper every year.”                                                   -Dr. Fred Schilling
