Dr. John A. Smith - Mini Dental Implant Dentist John Smith, DDS

John was born in Greenwood and graduated from Greenwood High School.  From there he attended the University of Mississippi at Oxford, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Biology.   Next he attended The University of Tennessee College of Dentistry on a   U S Navy Scholarship, graduating with the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery and the rank of Navy Lieutenant.

Dr Smith then served on active duty for three years with the US Navy Dental Corps at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina. There he worked in a dental clinic with 45 other dentists, many of who were specialists in the areas of oral surgery, endodontics, oral diagnosis, prosthodontics, and periodontics.  This was an excellent training ground and allowed Dr. Smith to develop his dental skills with the aid and supervision of several dental specialists.  As a result of this experience, he has been able to provide specialty care to his private patients in many cases without the need for a referral.

After leaving active duty with the Navy, Dr Smith moved to Greenwood and set up a private practice in General Dentistry in 1982.  He continued his work for the military by serving in the Reserves on weekends.   As a dental officer in the Naval Reserves and the Army National Guard, Lt Colonel Smith provided dental care for many servicemen and received a reserve retirement in 1996.

He also enjoys road bicycling, boating and computing.
