About Your Dentist

Eric Smith, DDS,MD

I am dedicated to working collaboratively with my patients and help them achieve and maintain optimal oral health.  I particularly enjoy how dentistry combines art and science in order to create beautiful, healthy smiles. When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them that I make people smile, literally. I am thankful to have the opportunity to provide every patient with a satisfying dental experience.

My Mission

I strive to provide my patients with high-quality dental care while forming trusting, caring and long-lasting relationships. I understand that being in a dental chair can be overwhelming, therefore, as your dentist, I will make sure to ease any anxiety and gently guide you every step of the way. My goal is for every single patient to walk away from our office feeling great about themselves, their teeth and our practice.
