When it comes to preserving, enhancing and beautifying our smiles, we all want the best. The best care. The best service. The best results. It’s as simple as that.

She listens so she can best understand your particular needs. Then she strives to provide the highest standard of personalized oral health care using her skilled training in the latest advances in dental technology.
Following a brief career in the field of biochemistry research, Dr. Smith discovered that her talents involved helping people. She graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1978 and went on to further her skills in a General Practice Residency with the United Stated Public Health Service in Baltimore and then in New York City. She came to Houston in 1981 where she was fortunate to learn the disciplines of gold foil and gold casting from the Masters and then helped teach those techniques to motivated dental students in an elective course at the Dental Branch. Dr. Smith continues to personally fabricate many of the crowns, onlays, and gold inlays for her patients. Her artistic talents with tooth shape and color have extended to creating beautiful smiles with porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding. Her professional memberships also include the Academy of Operative Dentistry, The Southwest Society of Oral Medicine, the Greater Houston Dental Society, The Texas Dental Association, and the American Dental Association.
As a native of Denver, Colorado, Dr. Smith loves the mountains and enjoys skiing, snow shoeing, hiking and fishing with her husband, Dr. John D Smith, Jr., an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who she met in dental school, and her faithful dogs Logan and Lacey. An avid student of the French language and culture, she enjoys French cuisine and traveling to various areas of France. Dr. Smith is an active member of the Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Houston and is dedicated to their ministry of offering support and hope to the homeless community.
