"The way I see the practice of dentistry, is that it is a wonderful opportunity to support the health of the community. As I work to make others stronger, I am made stronger in the process. Partnering with my skilled and friendly team, we see lives transformed by bringing healthy, attractive smiles to our patients."
-Michael A. Smith, DDS

Meet the doctor

Michael A. Smith, DDS
Dr. Smith is an active member of the American Dental Association, the American College of Prosthodontics, the Tennessee Dental Association, the Memphis Dental Society, and the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. "My community is very important to me. I am actively involved in my local church, Bellevue Baptist, and participate in a mobile dental clinic, providing dental care to low-income families."

Experience

"After completing my dental training at the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in 1977, I was invited to teach in the pre-clinical and clinical settings. It was only a year and a half into teaching that I was invited to enter the prosthodontics residency at the V.A. where I completed the 2 years post-doctoral program in 1981. I returned to teaching for 20 years and built a private practice in Dentistry. I love to learn, teach, and care for others. Staying informed of new information is very important for providing my patients with the greatest level of care. To keep on the cutting edge of restorative dentistry, I attend continuing education courses annually. Staying involved with the greater dental community is also a great asset. I was born in eastern Tennessee and raised in a medical family. I am one of seven children, and six of us are involved in some aspect of the field of medicine. I currently reside in Memphis with my wife, Rene. We have three grown children, Brandon, Anna, and Stuart, a daughter-in-law, Ashley, a son-in-law, Larry, and a daughter-in-law, Nina. When I'm not in the office I enjoy grilling and gardening."
