One of the primary reasons I went into the orthodontics field was the opportunity to see what a positive impact my father, Dr. Lynn Smith, had on the many people he treated. It is such an honor to be able to provide a meaningful service to so many in our community.



In our practice, you are important. The pathway to your successful outcome starts with excellent diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment delivery.

For the past 50 years, I have had the great opportunity to practice orthodontics and change the lives of children and adults in my community. This opportunity has helped me grow in the awareness of those around me, and enabled me to reach out to those in need.



The intricacies of modern orthodontics are a challenge, but my passion is to provide you with very meaningful service.

The challenge of providing a mutually agreed-upon treatment plan and motivating patients, particularly adolescents, to do the things that are necessary to achieve an ideal smile is sometimes daunting.

My goal is to be sensitive to your individual needs and expectations and arrive at a successful outcome: your truly amazing smile.

Orthodontist vs. Dentist: Why Choose an Orthodontist?

While both orthodontists and dentists play crucial roles in maintaining oral health, their areas of expertise differ significantly. Dentists focus on general oral health, including cleanings, fillings, and preventive care. Orthodontists, like Dr. Brian D. Smith and Dr. Lynn H. Smith, specialize in diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities. This additional training and specialization allow orthodontists to focus specifically on aligning teeth and jaws, ensuring optimal results for teeth straightening procedures.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment offers a multitude of benefits that extend beyond just straightening teeth. Here’s a comprehensive look at the physical, mental, personal, social, and professional advantages:

Social Benefits: Having a great smile enhances your social life by making you more approachable and confident in social settings. People with straight teeth are often perceived as more attractive and friendly, which can lead to more positive interactions and relationships. A confident smile can improve your ability to communicate and connect with others, enriching your social experiences.


Professional Benefits: In the professional realm, a confident smile can improve your career prospects. Studies have shown that people with straight teeth are often viewed as more successful and trustworthy. This perception can play a significant role in job interviews, networking, and overall career advancement. Orthodontic treatment can enhance your professional image, giving you the confidence to pursue new opportunities and excel in your career.

Mental and Personal Benefits: A beautiful, straight smile can significantly boost your self-confidence and self-esteem. When you feel good about your smile, it positively affects your overall mental health, making you more likely to engage in social activities and feel confident in personal interactions. The transformation of your smile through orthodontic treatment can lead to a more positive self-image and a greater sense of well-being.

Physical Benefits: Orthodontic treatment corrects dental alignment, making it easier to maintain good oral hygiene. Well-aligned teeth reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and jaw problems. Correcting bite issues can also alleviate strain on your teeth and jaw muscles, reducing symptoms like headaches and jaw pain. Improved alignment can also enhance the overall function of your bite, making it easier to chew and speak effectively.
