Dr. Sam Smith has been practicing orthodontics here in the Boise area since 2001. Among many things, he learned the value of hard work growing up the oldest of 10 children from Nampa, Idaho. Dr. Smith did his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University, where he majored in biology. He attended dental school at the University of Louisville and received his DMD in 1998, where he graduated in the top of his class with many honors. Dr. Sam stayed at University of Louisville for his specialty training in orthodontics as well as his master's degree. Although Dr. Smith loved Kentucky and the southern hospitality, he was very excited to return to Idaho and set up his practice.
Sam and his wife, Hollie, have six children. They love spending time together as a family. Dr. Smith loves the outdoors, boating, fishing, skiing, playing golf, and basketball. Did we mention he loves golf and basketball? He also stays busy volunteering in the community and with his church.
Dr. Smith absolutely loves going to work each day. Being an orthodontist is his dream job, and he doesn't think he will ever get tired of it. He loves the end result as well as the people he gets to associate with on a daily basis along the way.
