I have had the pleasure of being Dr. Smyka's full time assistant since 1995. I graduated from Northern Michigan College as a certified and registered dental assistant. I look forward to serving you in our caring and comfortable atmosphere.


I am a dental hygienist for Dr. Smyka and have been an employee here for 17 years. There are not a lot of occupations where you can help people and have so much information at your fingertips. I graduated from Ferris State College and absolutely love my job.


I graduated from Ferris State University as a dental hygienist and have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Smyka and his great staff since 2004. Meeting and working with all the new and existing patients has been a joy. I love educating patients about their dental needs.
