About the Doctor


Dr. Lynn H. Smith has been setting the highest standards of excellence in dentistry since 1990 and was recognized as one of Kansas City's top dentists in 2018 based on patient reviews.  She earned her undergraduate degree from Kansas State University and her dental degree from Baylor College of Dentistry (Dallas, TX).  Dr. Smith keeps up to date with the constantly evolving field of dentistry through her long term membership in the Great Plains Dental Study Club. She has been married to her husband, Joe, for over 30 years.  However, they have known each other even longer as they had classes together at Shawnee Mission South High School.  They lived in Dallas, Texas for four years while Dr. Smith attended dental school but soon decided to come back to family-friendly Kansas City in 1990 where Dr. Smith began her dental practice.

She has two children, Kyle, who is also a graduate of Kansas State; and Nicole, who is a graduate of Texas Christian University.  They help keep her connected to her community through their youth involvement in soccer, baseball and dance. Dr. Smith also gives back to the community with her involvement in organizations such as Overland Park Rotary, Kansas Donated Dental Society, and the Church of the Ascension. In her spare time, Dr. Smith enjoys genealogy, yoga, Big XII college sports, traveling, and participating with her book club.
