About The Smile Institute

We use the best:

We use proven and tested materials that last. With so many patients living well into their 80s and 90s, we always plan for longevity.

We do it right:

We offer leading-edge technologies such as digital X-rays and cone beam scanners. We use advanced systems that provide predictable results.

We do it now:

We sequence treatment accurately and finish cases on time and on budget.
