Dr. Smith is a dean’s list graduate from UCSF Dental School, graduating in 1995. After graduating, his focus on the relationship of oral health and its effect on the overall well-being of the body led him to advanced studies with the Institute of Nutritional Dentistry. Seeking ways to further benefit his patients, Dr. Smith then focused an additional three years of study on Oral Systemic Balance (OSB) therapy. He also studied through the American College on Integrative Medicine and Dentistry. His long-standing interest in holistic health has led him to become a certified massage therapist through the Alive and Well Institute in San Rafael, and he is a trained cranial sacral therapist.
