Dr. Shaun Smith, DDS

Orthodontist

Professional statement

Dr. Smith was born and raised in Jamaica and graduated from Campion College in Kingston. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering at the University of Florida and started his career working as a Process Engineer for Praxair Corp in Kingman, AZ. He made a career change in 2006 and pursued his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree at Howard University in Washington, DC. Dr. Smith graduated Magna Cum Laude and was inducted into the National Dental Honor Society – Omikron Kappa Upsilon (which is reserved for the top 10% of the graduating class). He continued Orthodontics training at Howard University and submitted research to the Journal of Clinical Dentistry on Orthodontic Movement of Taurodont Teeth and on Resistance to Sliding of Different Archwire-Bracket Combinations. He implemented and grew the Orthodontics program at five offices in the Tidewater area of Virginia for a national dental franchise called Kool Smiles. Kool Smiles was primarily a medicaid office, and strict approval guidelines meant only the most difficult cases were approved for treatment. This afforded Dr. Smith the opportunity to complete many of the most difficult Orthodontics cases for patients in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Hampton and Newport News. Dr. Smith moved back to Florida in March 2018 and brings his invaluable skills to patients in Miramar and Coral Springs.
