"Dr Smith and his team are fantastic!!! My family and I moved to Bel Air about 3 years ago and have been with the practice ever since. Recently I had a tooth emergency and Dr Smith was able to fit me into his busy schedule to accommodate me. My husband, Son and I were talking over dinner last night about how great the staff, facility and Dr Smith are. We couldn't be more pleased with how our care has been thus far."
