Dr. Robert Smith, originally from Windsor, Ontario, graduated dental school at the University of Western Ontario in 1986. From the beginning of his career, Dr. Smith enjoyed the artistic element of dentistry, creating smiles for patients that are beautiful and functional in a comfortable and relaxing environment.
Dr. Smith completed an internship at St. Joseph’s and Victoria hospitals in London, Ontario, where he received training in hospital-based oral surgery, pediatric and special needs dentistry. Dr. Smith practiced as an associate in London before purchasing a small solo dental practice in 1987 where he began serving Amherstview and surrounding communities. He has loved serving these communities ever since. In 2005, Dr. Smith opened Lakeview Dental to accommodate a growing patient family. He takes great pride in Lakeview Dental’s state-of-the-art dental clinic in Amherstview.
Shortly after moving to the Kingston area, Dr. Smith met his wife Brigit. A native of Kingston, Brigit worked for the Frontenac Children’s Aid Society for more than 20 years. Together, they have a daughter, Sydney, and a son, Simon. As a family they enjoy skiing, traveling and outdoor recreation. Dr. Smith has been an active participant in a variety of sports along with volunteering as a youth hockey and soccer coach.
Dr. Smith stays current with the newest in Implant, Complex Restorative and Cosmetic dentistry, and is one of the few area dentists to offer Sleep Dentistry and Conscious Sedation.
