What Makes Us Different

Our vision is uncompromising commitment to excellence achieved through the highest quality dental care, while also forming and maintaining relationships founded on sincerity, trust and individualized care. We believe that all people should have the opportunity to retain their natural smiles throughout their lives. Through home care and pain-free restorative dentistry, we are dedicated to making it possible for our patients to keep their teeth healthy with optimum function, comfort and appearance

An Individual Relationship

Most patients that are new to our practice tell us how they had been treated like a number, instead of an individual in their previous dental office. Here at Dr. Smythe’s office, we take the time to get to know you and your special needs and priorities. Our practice’s vision is to provide cutting edge materials and treatments, while maintaining individual relationships with each of our patients. Our philosophy will allow you to experience superior dentistry in a warm and caring environment.

Comfort Guaranteed

We are dedicated to relaxing and comfortable dentistry. We use the newest and most effective techniques to make your dental visits as pleasant as possible. These include oral sedation, electronic anesthesia and frill-free technology. We will find what is right for you. As the saying goes, nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care. We care!
