Meet Dr. Z

Doctor & Owner

Dr. Zachary R. Smith

Dr. Smith’s core as a dentist is to provide relationship-based care through a comprehensive approach to dentistry. His background strikes a balance between dental excellence and athletics. Academically, he has experience in scholarship, teaching, and research. Alternatively, as an endurance athlete, he has immersed himself in persistence that allows him to pursue all these interests equally.

He received a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston. During his time in dental school, he earned two national Ethics Awards and worked on projects that landed him in dental magazines and the national dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon.

Upon graduating, he felt he had more to give and wanted to expand his technical skills. This drive led him to earn a specialty certificate in a one-year advanced education in general dentistry program at the Texas A&M College of Dentistry in Dallas, which gave him additional training beyond those graduating from dental school.

Today, Dr. Smith is honored to be a part of these dental organizations: Texas Dental Association, North Texas Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Dental Association. He is a certified Invisalign® Provider since 2019 and has extensive training in dental implants. By 2021, he qualified for his Fellowship status in the Academy of General Dentistry by completing a rigorous examination and completing over 500 hours of continuing education since his graduation, well above the 24 hours required by the state. He is awaiting his award presentation in 2022.

Outside of the office, Dr. Smith competes at a high level in endurance athletics including Ironman triathlons and marathons. The commitment he puts into his life outside of the office is the same, if not more than he puts into his practice. At Z Dentistry, our aim is that the sum of Dr. Smith’s experiences will give patients an all-encompassing type of dentistry by means of true patient connections.
