Dr. Smith Dentist AZ Family & Kids Dental

Dr. Smith


Dr. Smith served as a dentist in the United States Navy for five years after completing an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency. He traveled the world, serving onboard two different ships and was responsible for establishing the dental department of the USS ANCHORAGE (LPD-23). He continues to serve in the Navy Reserves.


After graduating I had the honor to serve as a dentist in the United States Navy for five years. My first year was spent in an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency where I received additional training in all of the dental specialties.

The next four years in the Navy took me all over the world as I served onboard two different ships, the USS PEARL HARBOR (LSD-52) and the USS ANCHORAGE (LPD-23). As part of the commissioning crew of the ANCHORAGE I had the responsibility to establish the dental department and led the combined medical and dental departments as the ship was brought to life and put in to service.

I am fortunate to continue my military service in the Navy Reserves.

Throughout school and my career I have been supported by my amazing wife, Erica. We are the proud parents of 3 daughters and 1 son. Family is everything to me, and I love spending time with them.

I approach dentistry as I approach life, with a good attitude and an open mind. I’m all about teaching the patient and letting them make an informed decision as opposed to telling them what to do. I encourage questions and want patients to understand what their options are.

My goal in dentistry is to work with people to provide quality treatment in a comfortable environment. I want to connect with patients and earn their trust.
