A Legacy of Care.

Since 1953, three generations of our family have put our passion for dentistry to work in our community. We have been building an ongoing legacy of quality care, trust, and service for more than 60 years.

1953

Dr. Oscar Edward Smith

Dr. Oscar Edward Smith had an incredible journey to become a dentist. Born in a family of seasonal migrant workers, Oscar loved flying and became a pilot. Later, as a master of the Stearman PT 13 aircraft, he came to be a Flight Squadron Commander in Pensacola, Florida, training pilots for World War II.

After the war, he went to the University of Oregon and later on to North Pacific Dental College (which later would become the University of Oregon Dental School). He began practicing in 1953 as one of the first pediatric dentists in Eugene. He and his wife Delila had 7 children.

1973

Dr. Steve Smith

Dr. Steve practiced dentistry for over 40 years in the Eugene/Springfield community. After graduating from the University of Oregon Dental School (later to become Oregon Health and Sciences University) he joined his father Oscar in the family practice in 1973. The father/son tandem practiced together for 7 years at their 1405 Mill Street office. Throughout the years, Dr. Steve has been known for his ability to put children at ease and guide them through dental care.

Dr. Steve has also been recognized for his commitment to dentistry in Oregon as he has served as trustee, vice president, and president of the Oregon Dental Association. He and his wife Linda are the parents of 5 children and 24 grandchildren.

Three generations of high-quality dental care.

Preventive Dentistry

We provide exceptional preventative care, including exams, cleanings and digital x-rays. Early detection of dental problems is essential to gain optimal oral health. The American Dental Association recommends that all patients schedule six-month dental check-up exams.

Children's Dentistry

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, your child should visit the dentist within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by his or her first birthday. Early oral examination aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay. Early detection is also essential to maintain good oral health.

Emergency Care

We provide care for dental emergencies and dental trauma. Contact our office immediately if you experience trauma to your face, mouth, or teeth. We want to see you as soon as possible to ensure your oral health and safety.

Endodontics

Endodontic (root canal) therapy removes harmful bacteria from your tooth, healing infection, ending your pain and improving your health. When decay or a crack has reached the nerve of a tooth, a root canal is necessary.

Cosmetic Dentistry

We offer aesthetic dental solutions to enhance the appearance of your smile and overall confidence. Cosmetic dentistry can also improve the overall function of your mouth and teeth.

Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry is used to restore the strength and beauty of your smile. If you’ve been suffering from pain caused by decay or other health conditions, you may benefit from restorative therapy. We offer conservative treatment solutions to preserve your natural teeth, as well as tooth replacement options.
