Dr Smith literally saved my life! I’d had nerve pain in my face for 6 years and seen so many doctors with no answers. Dr Smith found a tooth infection and I had the tooth pulled in a few days and the pain was gone! Can’t believe no one caught this before. The infection could have gone to my heart overnight at any point and killed me. Everyone in the office is so helpful and kind and Dr Smith talks to me like I have a brain, which I appreciate!

About fifteen months ago, I went to see Dr. Susan Smith for my oral health care. Upon discussing my treatment plan we decided it would be appropriate for me to have Orthodontic treatment using "Clear Choice" aligners, but there was one complication I have three implanted teeth. Dr. Smith was able to work around those obstacles and the result is I now have a beautiful smile. My husband and my family give me complements on my new smile. I found Dr. Smith to be a very competent and compassionate care giver and her staff equally competent and compassionate. I want to thank Dr. Smith and her staff for my excellent care. I highly recommend Dr. Smith's office for your future dental care. Sincerely smiling Tam

My husband had been going to her for years, and always struggled with his gums. I began going to her when I got on his insurance. I had a small cavity. She waited a year to fill it and by that point I needed a root canal instead of just a filling, In the meantime, my husband's gum disease got worse. We switched dentists, his gum disease got better, and my cavities were acted upon. I'll never go back to such a consistently negligent dentist.

Dr Smith and her team not only provide top-notch oral health care, but help you understand how your dental habits and routines make a difference in your overall health. I am way more motivated to keep my gums and teeth healthy. The office is really comfortable and convenient, and everyone who works there is friendly and helpful. It does take a while to get an appointment, though. It's a very popular practice.
