Dr. Schaller And Family Praise Veteran Dentist
Paul Mabe, DDS
I have never written an endorsement for a dentist. I have been spoiled by always having good dental care, and my family has also had top dentists. However, Dr. Paul Mabe is such a gift to SW Florida that we felt, as a family, the need to let others in on our finding.
First, "Dr. Paul" is profoundly kind. He is kind to his younger staff, new staff and also to patients. He does not have a mean bone in his body. His calls and emails to check on you come from real concern. He is quick to respond to even slight discomfort to make your experience fully pain-free.
Second, he has a lust for learning. The other day he came across a book on biofilm dental infections, and had read most of the book in 48 hours. He does not merely read the trivial hours required to keep his license, but studies to be a better doctor. Reading that book would earn him no required dental education hours, and he did not care. He thought it would make him a better doctor.
He is a superb thinker. When faced with complex problems he walks you through your options very clearly. He is so smart he makes the complex clear. Since he has over 20 years experience he has wise and experienced options.
Dr. Paul moves at a speed you prefer. If you have obligations after your session, he has you out so you will not be late. He is always on time.
Finally, he has learned many lessons treating the very poor in many different countries in South and Central America, offering lessons that apply to USA and EU patients.
The bottom line is simple. Good luck finding a kinder, smarter, more up-to-date, and considerate dentist in SW Florida.

Dr. Paul Mabe was born and raised in Shawnee, Kansas. He attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry where he graduated and received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1990. After practicing 23 years in a busy private practice in Kansas, he has relocated to Florida with his family where he has maintained an active Florida Dental License since 1999.
Dr. Mabe established his private practice focusing on all aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry for children and adults. Additionally, he is proficient in orthodontics, molar endodontics, prosthodontics and the routine placement of dental implants, bone grafting surgery and the early removal of impacted third molars.

In the courses that Dr. Mabe teaches, he presents a thorough, practical approach to implant placement, restoration and surgical procedures for the general dentist who wants to further their implant and surgical experience and knowledge. His passion to mentor others is born out of the mentoring he has received from professionals of various industries who have invested in him, encouraging him to reach further, dig deeper and bring out the best in himself so he could give to others.
Serving the underserved around the world has been a hallmark of Dr. Mabe's professional career. Since 1990 he has traveled to places like Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic offering hundreds of thousands of dollars of free dentistry to people who would otherwise not be able to afford dental treatment.
