About Your Dentist

Eric Smith, DDS

"A smile is often the key thing. One is paid with a smile. One is rewarded with a smile. One is brightened by a smile." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

My Mission

“When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them that I make people smile, literally. As a dentist, I want to help others obtain their ideal state of oral health and smile with pride and confidence. My patients can depend on me to always make them feel comfortable and at ease while under my care. My primary goal is for every single patient to leave our office fully satisfied with their service and feeling great about themselves, their teeth, and our practice.”
