Dr. Smith grew up in Grand Haven, MI, and is a graduate of Hope College in Holland, Michigan.  He spent a year working as a chemist for The Upjohn Company in Kalamazoo, MI, and then attended The University of  Michigan School of Dentistry, graduating  in 1990.  Dr. Smith pursued two additional years of endodontic specialty training at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry earning both a Certificate in Endodontics as well as a Master’s Degree.

During his dental education Dr. Smith actively pursued research in the dental field, and received several awards.  He presented his research at the International Association of Dental Research meeting in Dublin, Ireland, and at several other meetings in the USA.   Some of his work was also published in The Journal of Endodontics.  While attending The University of Detroit Mercy, he actively taught  pre-clinical and clinical endodontics to undergraduate Dental Students.

He is certified and licensed by the State of Michigan Board of Dentistry and Michigan Department of Community Health as an Endodontic Specialist. Dr. Smith practiced Endodontics in Marquette, Michigan in 1992, and began his private practice in  Grand Haven in 1993.  Through his career he has occasionally presented continuing education lectures to colleagues about various endodontic topics. Dr. Smith is a Specialist Member of the American Association of Endodontists, and a member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, and the West Michigan District Dental Society.

Due to a need for a larger office space to integrate new technology into his practice, as well as to provide availabilty to a larger segment of the Ottawa County population, Dr. Smith moved his practice to the north side of Holland, MI in April of 2013.

In addition to his practice as a root canal specialist, Dr. Smith also spends time with his family pursuing shared interests such as skiing, biking, and hiking.  He and his wife of 34 years also enjoy supporting their daughters in both college and high school sports.
