    As a proud lifetime resident of Morris County, you will find Dr. Smith’s engaging personality and gentle touch to perfectly combine for the ultimate patient experience.

    Dr. Scott Smith, son of Dr. Edward J. Smith, graduated from one of the top globally ranked dental schools, New York University College of Dentistry, and then completed his residency for General Dentistry at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. He also obtained additional training in the specific niche of Implant Dentistry at both the renowned Nobel Biocare Training Institute and Zimmer Biomet Institute.

    Drawing on his years of experience and education, Dr. Smith is easily able to provide for a wide array of patient cases. Ranging from family care for both children and adults to highly advanced complex patient care, Dr. Smith’s captivating smile and outstanding bedside manner will put every patient at complete ease.

    While he enjoys a robust dental practice of Family Care Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry and Dental Implants during the week, when Dr. Smith is not attending to patients, you can find him playing tennis, golf or practicing his self-taught chess game or competing in local tournaments.
