David J. Smith, DDS
Dr. David J. Smith was born and raised in Central California. After completing high school, he proceeded to Salt Lake City, earning his bachelor’s degree from the University of Utah. He again moved East to attend dental school at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he graduated cum laude.
Once he earned his Doctorate in Dentistry, he was fortunate to pursue his dream job of being an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon when he was accepted into a residency program in New Haven, Connecticut.
At the Hospital of St. Raphael and Yale-New Haven Hospital, he received comprehensive training in facial trauma, orthognathic surgery, general anesthesia, dentoalveolar surgery, surgical implant placement, and bone grafting.
He also was able to take part in specialized training in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology at the Long Island Jewish Hospital in New Hyde Park, New York.
He and his family are excited to be back west in California and be part of such a wonderful community and works out of Visalia, and Hanford offices.
