In nearly every situation in life, the less metal that's in your mouth, the better. General and cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael A. Smith, DDS seems to have adopted this position. Unlike traditional dentistry, which repairs cavities with metal amalgams and covers up damaged teeth with conspicuous metal caps, Dr. Smith's Cerec-technology-driven dentistry relies on ceramic onlays, inlays, and veneers. And his composite resins fill in for missing enamel while remaining virtually invisible, like a ketchup stain on a red “I put ketchup on my ketchup” T-shirt.
Echoing this commitment to unobtrusive oral health is Dr. Christine H. Fitzgerald. A recent addition to the team, Dr. Fitzgerald brings with her the lessons that she learned during an award-filled stint at the University of Louisville School for Dentistry. Recognized for her work in endodontics, Dr. Fitzgerald also earns plaudits exhibits for the compassion and dedication that drove her to complete mission stints as far away as Honduras and as close as Pikeville, KY.
Between the two of them, Drs. Smith and Fitzgerald have more than three decades of experience. They care for patients in a calming office filled with soothing chairside candles. In addition to their in-office work, Dr. Smith also participates in a mobile dental clinic that provides dental care to low-income families.
