Family and General Dentistry
As a trusted family dentist in Waxahachie, TX, for 20+ years, Dr. Craig Smith is like a primary care doctor for your teeth.
A general dentist is required to complete four years of undergraduate school followed by four years of dental school and a passing grade on the dental licensure exam. With all of this requisite training and much more, Dr. Smith is qualified to effectively diagnose and treat a wide range of dental health issues for your family!
After graduating from the University of Texas Health Science Center Dental School, Dr. Smith opened his Ellis County family dentist office with the support of his wife, Deborah. The Smiths continue to serve patients and families together, offering concierge dentistry services that far exceed the typical standard of care.

The connection between oral health and general health
Having a general dentist is extremely important for maintaining healthy teeth and spotting dental problems before they develop into bigger issues. Dr. Smith recommends professionally cleaning your teeth every six months to remove hardened food debris, called tartar, which can cause serious issues such as gum disease.
Even more importantly, your dental health is connected to the health of the rest of your body, too. Studies show a link between gum disease, heart disease, diabetes, and even pregnancy problems. It is important that your family dentist be willing and qualified to develop a customized dental health care plan that takes into consideration your entire health history and your unique oral care needs.
