Dedicated and Compassionate Smithtown Orthodontist

Dr. Craig Smith, orthodontist in Smithtown, NY

Our Doctor

Every patient is a person first and a patient second. I treat every patient like I would my own family because I truly hope to make them feel a part of my small dental family.

“Every day I wake up, I thank God that I chose to be an orthodontist. The profession allows me to meet and interact with unique and different people every day. I’m a people person. People come to see me because they want a better smile, and I take great pride in delivering the smiles they want and deserve. For a number of patients, this is a life-changing experience! It feels good to see patients, who started out shy because of their crooked teeth, leave my office after treatment with perfectly straight teeth, now confident and outgoing!”
