Dr. Smolinski's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Smolinski "Dr. Donna's dental education began with an A.A.S. Degree in Dental Hygiene from Erie Community College in Buffalo, New York. While practicing as a hygienist in various dental offices throughout multiple states, Donna experienced firsthand the callous, mechanical delivery of care that is often the norm in the industry. Vowing to improve the system from within, she committed to becoming a dentist while balancing a life as a naval officer's wife and mother of two small children. This meant taking dental school prerequisite courses in three different states and seeking admission to a dental school that was nearby to her husband's duty station in Charleston, South Carolina. Despite her husband's deployments and even a category 4 hurricane that ravaged her home, Dr. Donna graduated from the Medical University of South Carolina with multiple awards for academic and clinical excellence. While most graduating dentists would normally either become employees or buy existing practices, Dr. Donna was determined to achieve her goal of independent practice with utmost speed. Just six months after she graduated, Sensitive Dentistry was born. She gave careful consideration to this name. She is especially sensitive to those who have experienced disagreeable dental care elsewhere. She strives to educate patients on their condition and listen to their concerns. She uses only the highest quality materials in her practice and lives by the adage, "treat people like you want to be treated." Beyond the practice, Dr. Donna enjoys life as a wife, mother, and grandmother. Her passions include cooking, gardening and decorating. Her aesthetic touches, as well as her husband's photography, make a visit to her dental office a relaxing and enjoyable experience. At Sensitive Dentistry Donna L. Smolinski, a dental office in Port Charlotte, Florida, our mission is taking care of you and taking care of the planet. While doing so, we will focus our efforts in offering and providing only the most compassionate dental care of the highest possible quality."
