We are happy to introduce our new Orthodontist, Dr. Nicole Smith, DMD, MSD! Dr. Smith will be practicing at our Clackamas, Beaverton and Hillsboro locations.
Dr. Smith is originally from Massachusetts, where she grew up enjoying the many lakes, mountains and beaches of New England. After graduating from Dartmouth College, she decided to follow in the footsteps of her grandfather, her uncle and her brother, and enter dental school.
She knew early on at the University of Louisville that she would like to pursue orthodontics like her uncle, so following graduation, she went on to complete her masters and residency in ortho at the University of Washington. Dr. Smith then joined her husband in the Bay Area, where she ultimately ran her private practice for nearly twelve years.
Recently, Dr. Smith and her family decided to relocate to the Portland area, so their kids could be raised with family nearby. Dr. Smith and her family have been enjoying everything the wonderful Pacific Northwest has to offer. Some of her favorite activities include hiking, skiing, and tennis.
"I love being an orthodontist because you get to know your patients well while they are in braces or Invisalign. It is so fun to hear about their soccer games, school plays and new jobs, while giving them a great smile! In no time, it feels like everyone is part of one big family as you work together to achieve your goals. The best part is getting to see your patient's beautiful smile at the end."
