Qualified, Friendly Professionals

When Dr. Barney Austin retired in 1997, Dr. Smith took over his practice, which was the second established dental practice in Lexington. It was Dr. Smith’s goal to build upon the excellent dental care that Dr. Austin had already given the people of Lexington for 34 years.

Two of our current team members were part of the original dental team when Dr. Smith bought the practice from Dr. Barney Austin. Dr. Smith believes in hiring the best, training them, and keeping them as part of his team in order to deliver the best patient care.

Since buying the practice from Dr. Austin, our team has more than doubled. The nine-plus person team working with Dr. Smith today has been with him for more than a combined 60 years and has over 150 years of experience in dentistry.

Our mission is to provide our patients with the highest quality and comprehensive care in a concerned, friendly and professional atmosphere. We are dedicated to delivering the most advanced techniques and technology available in cosmetic and restorative dentistry.
