Meet Dr. Smith

It is a privilege and joy to be able to work with our patients and give them amazing smiles. In many cases, the transformation can be life changing. I love working with patients of all ages, and helping them to achieve their goal of a beautiful, healthy smile. 

I genuinely believe that I have one of the best teams in the area. They are truly caring, wonderful people who put our patients’ welfare first. We all constantly strive to provide the best care in the most efficient manner possible. We are committed to not wasting our patients’ and parents’ time by not overbooking and by using the latest technology to perform the shortest and most accurate treatment possible. 

Education and Continuing Education

  • Undergraduate degree – Texas Tech University
  • Doctorate of Dental Surgery – Baylor College of Dentistry
  • Orthodontic residency – Baylor College of Dentistry
  • Master of Science – Texas A&M University

I believe it is important to stay up on the latest research and technologies so we can offer our patients the best treatment possible. Orthodontics is the oldest specialty in dentistry and has made great advances over the last 15 years. Our ability to utilize 3D imaging and printing has greatly increased the efficiency and accuracy of our treatment and allowed us to utilize aligner trays (no braces) for certain treatments, which has gone over well with patients.

Outside the Office

My wife Terri and I have a daughter and son who are in high school in Lago Vista. Both enjoy water sports, rock climbing, and hanging out with their friends. They both participate in band and my son plays basketball and tennis. 

I have been very active in the Boy Scouts for nearly a decade: I’ve served as a den leader, assistant scout master, scout master, camping director, climbing director, and COPE instructor. My hobbies include water sports, rock climbing, and tennis. 

I am also passionate about our responsibility as humans to serve each other and make the world a better place, one person at a time. My wife and I led and hosted a small group for our church for many years and are active in the band booster club and other activities at our kids’ school. We are also proud to provide financial support to the organizations that our patients are active in around the community.
