Meet Dr. Kevin Smith

Dr. Kevin Smith

Dental Anesthesiologist

Oregon Health & Science University

Loma Linda Medical Center

Dr. Kevin G. Smith hails from the Great Northwest. He was born and raised in Portland, Oregon.  After pursuing a Biology Major in college and a two-year mission for his church in Seoul, South Korea, he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Oregon Health and Science University  in 2002. 


Dr. Smith's post-doctoral training included an internship at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio with the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, where he became well acquainted with hospital protocols and emergency rooms.  He entered Dental Anesthesia Residency after matching to the distinguished Loma Linda University program, whereupon his wife and four daughters moved to sunny California. During his training in Loma Linda Medical Center, as well as in several affiliated surgery centers and hospitals, he gained valuable experience in various applications of anesthesia delivery ranging from transplant and neurosurgeries to spine surgeries and pediatric ENT and dental cases.  Importantly, his training included an emphasis on pediatric patients and patients with special needs in both the hospital setting as well as the ambulatory surgery center and dental office settings. 


Dr. Smith and his family enjoyed their previous time in Texas so much that they made it their destination after residency. Dr. Smith adores his wife and four daughters and can always be found near them, happily doing anything from grocery shopping to bird watching.  His general warmth, gentleness, and concern for others make him a favorite with patients in the setting of dental anesthesia.
