About Dr. Smith
Dentistry is the perfect balance of Dr. Smith’s two personal passions: science and creativity. As a former musician, Dr. Smith wanted work that was creative and let him work with his hands, while giving him the opportunity to use his knowledge and skills to help people in life-changing ways. Millbrae Smile Center, his new home, has given Dr. Smith just that opportunity.
With a scholarship to play piano in their chamber orchestra, Dr. Smith received his B.S. in Biology from Widener University, graduating with Advanced Honors in General Education. While in college, Dr. Smith volunteered with the American Red Cross, which had a profound impact on him. Experiencing the rewards of helping others in need, he became determined to find a career that would allow him to practice his interests while also serving his community. He went on to receive his DMD from Temple University, and completed his general practice residency at Hackensack University Medical Center. Dr. Smith is now a member of the American Dental Association, and he is thrilled to be a recent addition to the team at Millbrae Smile Center.
Growing up, Dr. Smith was inspired by his trips to the orthodontist. He marveled at the doctors’ ability to change smiles and fix people’s teeth, and at the fact that he always left feeling like he had a great experience. That focus on a positive patient experience influences Dr. Smith to this day. His goal is to be there fully for his patients, and to put them above all else. Not only does he offer high quality dental care, Dr. Smith works closely with each patient to make sure any fears they might have are alleviated, and all their questions are answered. He believes oral health is an essential component to systemic health and living well, and he doesn’t take that responsibility lightly. He builds trust with his patients through reliable care, open discussion and conversation, and the use of modern technologies to help them visualize and understand the care they are receiving. Above all else, Dr. Smith wants his patients to be comfortable, and to feel comfortable asking him questions. He believes that’s the key to an enduring doctor-patient relationship, and to a lifelong commitment to oral health.
My number one goal is to make each patient's experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Originally from the East Coast, Dr. Smith loves taking full advantage of the Bay Area’s mild climate. He also loves spoiling his dog, Arthur, by taking him on long hikes. Dr. Smith enjoys local film festivals, and he is becoming a little bit of a foodie, always keeping up with the restaurant scene. He still plays piano, which scratches his musical itch and helps him stay dexterous for his work at Millbrae Smile Center.
