Ever since he can remember, Dr. Smith has had positive experiences at the dentists office. He grew up with a huge gap in the middle of his front two teeth, and after undergoing orthodontic treatment as a teenager, he personally got to experience the amazing confidence boost that came from having a straighter, more attractive smile. At that point, he knew that he wanted to provide that very same happiness to the people around him and the rest is history.
After attending Arkansas State University, Dr. Smith achieved his dental doctorate at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Before opening his own dental office, he worked at a variety of different dental offices across Northeast Arkansas, Southeast Missouri, and Memphis, gaining lots of value experience along the way. As for continuing education, he has completed courses with companies like Nobel Biocare and Versah regarding dental implants, BOTOX/Juvederm training with the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, and hundreds of hours of online training through Dentaltown!
Dr. Smiths parents live in Brookland, and he has a brother here in Jonesboro who works as a pharmacist. His wife Candance is a physical therapy assistant who also runs their downtown venue (The Smith Venue). In his free time, he loves renovating homes and cooking Gordon Ramsey is a hero for him! He and Candace are always trying out recipes. Weekend trips are also a big priority. They love seeing new places regularly and being able to spend quality time with family.

Holly loves coming into work each day because it means she gets the opportunity to change peoples lives by making their mouths healthier. Building genuine relationships along the way is extremely rewarding too! An Arkansas native, she attended college at BRTC and Arkansas State before completing dental hygiene school at the Southern Illinois University. Today, she is certified in nitrous oxide and has her local anesthesia permit!
Outside the office, Hollys favorite thing to do is spend time with her family, which consists of her husband, her daughter, and her two fur children. Any chance she can, she loves to be outside, especially around the water. In fact, Daytona Beach, FL is one of her favorite vacation spots! Spending time on the river with her family in the summertime is something she cherishes.
Scaling and root planing is a type of dental cleaning that is specifically designed to stop gum disease in its tracks. First, any plaque and tartar that has accumulated near the gum line are removed (scaling), and then the roots of the teeth are slightly reshaped and smoothed (root planing). This prevents future infections while also kickstarting the healing process by allowing the gums to quickly reattach to the teeth.
