Dr. Byron T. Smith - Orthodontist

Dr. Byron was
born and raised in Dothan, Alabama.  He attended college at Auburn University majoring in Biomedical Sciences.  He graduated Auburn with a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences- Summa cum laude.  He furthered his education at University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry graduating in the top 5% of his class.  After dental school, his desire to see a different part of the country moved him to the West Coast.  There, he started his Orthodontic Residency at the University of California, San Francisco.  He truly enjoyed seeing a different part of the country and spending time in California, however, he began to miss home and his family.  He and his wife decided to move to Marshall County, a place they found to be one of the most beautiful areas in the state!

Dr. Byron has an amazing and supportive wife, Hillary, whom he has been best friends with since the 4th grade.  They have a 3 year old daughter, Ellie and a 1 year old daughter, Adelaide.  Dr. Byron and Hillary also have a crazy Basset Hound, Thelma, who has a big personality.  If you see the Smith family around town, stop and say hey!

Obviously, one of Dr. Byron's favorite hobbies is creating amazing smiles!  He feels that being an orthodontist is the greatest profession on Earth and he strives to make your treatment as fun and exciting as possible.  When not straightening teeth, he enjoys spending time with his family and taking in outdoor activities such as watersports, wakeboarding and snowboarding.
