DR. ALEXANDER SMITH
Dr. Smith grew up in Bend. He has always loved Central Oregon and his home town. Growing up Dr. Smith enjoyed snowboarding, playing soccer, golfing, fishing, Boy Scouts (he is an Eagle Scout) and drumming in school and social bands. In 2004, Dr. Smith graduated from Summit High School and headed to the University of Oregon. Go Ducks! Dr. Smith graduated from the University of Oregon with a bachelor's in Human Physiology and a double minor in business and chemistry.
Dr. Smith then started his 10-year out-of-state journey by attending The Ohio State University for his dental education. It was during dental school that Dr. Smith’s passion for comprehensive dental care, surgery, and digital technology was born and nurtured. This is also where Dr. Smith met Dr. Tom Spoonster and their friendship began.
After he graduated from Ohio State University and he served as a Captain in the United States Army for four years. Dr. Smith was stationed in Seoul, South Korea, and Ft Bragg, North Carolina where he worked closely and collaborated with many dental specialists, oral surgeons, periodontists, endodontists, prosthodontists, and orthodontists.
DR. THOMAS SPOONSTER
Dr. Tom Spoonster was born and raised in northeast Ohio. He earned a Bachelor of Science at the University of Dayton while majoring in pre-medicine/ pre-dentistry. He then attended The Ohio State University College of Dentistry where he met Dr. Alex Smith. They quickly became very good friends, bonding over mutual interests in music, skiing and snowboarding, and an eagerness to help others by keeping up with the latest and greatest ways to treat their patients. During their senior year in dental school, they traveled together to Dr. Smith’s hometown of Bend, OR, to ski Mt. Bachelor.
It was then that Dr. Tom knew he would one day like to move west to enjoy more of the outdoor activities that are so prevalent there. After Dental School he completed a general practice residency at Mercy Medical Center in Canton, Ohio. There he received hands-on training with many representatives of the various dental specialties including endodontics, pediatrics, periodontics, oral surgery, and orthodontics. He also did full mouth rehabilitation for patients with developmental disabilities under general anesthesia in an OR setting.
He felt that this time was important in gaining more experience in procedures such as root canals and implants so that he could better care for his patients.
