Dr. Smith graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration U.C. Berkeley in 1985, and a Juris Doctor from U.C. Los Angeles in 1989. After practicing law in Alabama, Dr. Smith graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery from U.C. San Francisco in 1998. He then took over his father’s dental practice in Norwalk, and practiced there over 20 years. Two separate cars crashed into his medical office building and shut down his practice, forcing Dr. Smith to relocate. His wife, who has family in Idaho and Montana, and his older sons all enjoy fishing, hunting and skiing.
