Dr. Lee Smith, DDS
Lee Smith grew up in Colorado Springs, which he affectionately calls “the greatest city.” When he was a child, Lee’s mom, Sharon, was an assistant to a local dentist and, as a teenager, Lee shadowed the dentist to learn more about the profession.
“What appealed to me was the personal contact with so many people and being able to make a difference in the way people feel about themselves and the way the world would see them,” Dr. Smith says.
Lee attended Regis University for his undergraduate education and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine in 1994. As a young doctor, Dr. Smith joined the practice of Dr. Al Ernster in 1994, and in 1995, Dr. Smith bought the practice, becoming the owner and lead dentist.
