Invisalign

Invisalign clear aligners provide an effective way to straighten your teeth while remaining virtually invisible. Wearing the comfortable, customized aligners will gradually shift your teeth into their correct position. Correcting teeth alignment is imperative, not just cosmetically, but for overall health. Invisalign offers the best of both worlds: comfortable, efficient straightening with an essentially invisible appearance.

Dr. Smith's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "Dr. Smith, DDS is an esteemed member of the Doctor Mastery Program. The five-year program consists of clinical training conducted by world renowned clinicians, from building on foundational skills and advancing to mastery of the most complex dental care. For over 36 years, I have had the opportunity to practice in a truly great profession. I am honored that my patients open themselves up to me, sharing their honest concerns and allowing me to help them improve and maintain their overall wellness and dental health. I am rewarded every day by the wonderful interactions I have with such a wide variety of personalities, from my great office staff to each and every patient. I am passionate about helping people! Education My education has enabled me to provide only the best and most effective treatments for my patients. I attended the University of Tennessee Dental College, graduating in 1977, and completed my prosthodontic residency at the Veteran's Administration in 1981. Most of all, I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the importance of good dentistry over a lifetime. Continuing Education Staying informed of new information is very important for providing my patients with the greatest level of care. To keep on the cutting edge of restorative dentistry, I attend continuing education courses annually. Staying involved with the greater dental community is also a great asset, and I am currently a member of the American Dental Association, the American College of Prosthodontics, the Tennessee Dental Association, the Memphis Dental Society, and the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. Outside the Office I was born in eastern Tennessee and raised in a medical family. I am one of seven children, and six of us are involved in some aspect of the field of medicine. I currently reside in Memphis with my wife, Rene. We have three grown children, Brandon, Anna, and Stuart, a daughter-in-law, Ashley, a son-in-law, Larry, and a daughter-in-law, Nina. When I'm not in the office I enjoy grilling and gardening. My community is very important to me. I am actively involved in my local church, Bellevue Baptist, and participate in a mobile dental clinic, providing dental care to low income families."
