Jordon Caine Smith, DDS
I love being a dentist. I know, seems strange. But if you can imagine the joy I feel everytime I rejuvinate a smile, correct a child's outcome, replace a front tooth, or remove someone's pain, you'd love being one too. Marry that feeling with the technology we have at our fingertips today, and it only gets better. I have a lot of fun tools to help you become better, and I have a lot of fun doing it. I'm your backup to all things smile related. Let me tell you how I got here....
My desire to become a dentist started in high-school. My dentist took a lot of time to talk with me and inspire me to consider the profession he loved. So after high-school, I enrolled at Rogers State University and off I went. I received my Bachelor's degree in Molecular Biology from Rogers State University. This degree is considered the "pre-med" degree and covers the subjects of biology and chemistry that most relate to the foundation of medicine. All I can say about this degree is too much chemistry!
Following my Bachelor's degree, I attended the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry where I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.). As a senior student, I was humbly awarded the "Excellence in Endodontics" award, only 1 of 2 students in a class of 55 that would receive this. I was also chosen to be part of the "Pediatric Honors Group", of which only 5 students were chosen. We were given tougher cases in the pediatric department and honored as the best of our class treating children. I was also given a certificate of recognition from the AAID (Academy of Implant Dentistry) for ourstanding achievement, and earned the Edwin L. Wilson Award, given to the student of his or her class that demonstrates the greatest level of patient care at OU.
After graduation, and prior to starting Breathe M/D, I worked in several dental offices where I gained considerable experience in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and oral surgery, but no one was doing it the way I envisioned. So after some planning and gathering of resources, I started my own office, Breathe Modern Dentistry.
When I graduated from Oklahoma, I remember the Dean saying our degree was "simply a contract, an agreement to be a student for life." He was right, and I've enjoyed furthering my education ever since. By regularly participating in continuing education, I stay aware of the latest technology and dental treatments available. My patients deserve the best, and continuing education allows me to provide my patients with more options and better results. The majority of my CE has come from LVI Global located in Las Vegas, known for their education is neuromuscular, physiologic, and cosmetic dentistry. Neuromuscular dentistry is a dental treatment philosophy intended to correct a "misalignment" of the jaw at the temporomandibular joint and to produce a balanced bite.
To compliment my studies in neuromuscular dentistry, I have studied with the Facial Beauty Institute and founder, Dr. Steve Galella, to further my understanding of proper facial development, TMJ treatment, and orthodontic correction. Proper facial development, beginning at the age of six, must be achieved to reduce the instances of TMD (Temporomandibular Diseases), breathing related sleep-disorders, abnormal facial profiles, and complications of the bite. Regardless of the age however, we can improve and correct most issues with facial growth and development to correct a variety of problems that plague so many people in our area.
Commitment to Community
I am truly blessed to live and work in such a wonderful community. I enjoy getting to know my patients and their families, and it is such an honor to know that I have made a difference in so many of my patients' lives. We were blessed to be awarded the Broken Arrow Chamber's "Business of the Year for 1-15 employees" in 2017. It was truly an honor and a blessing to know that our involvement in the community was noticed. I couldn't ask for a better job or for better people sharing their smiles with me. I look forward to working and sharing the same with you too.
