Dr. Smith was an amazing instructor. He was always willing to help and keep you moving forward. Sometimes it was with a joke other times it was with wise advice about dentistry. I always appreciated the time that he put in to help me become the dentist I am today. My condolences to the family. May God's love shower you with peace as you mourn the loss of Dr. Smith.
