Kyle Smith, DDS - Dentist
Dr. Kyle Smith is an East Tennessee native and is excited to be permanently back home serving our community in Karns, TN. Dr. Smith is a graduate of The University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, where he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 2015 after four years of comprehensive dental education. Before that time, he attended Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, where he completed his prerequisite dental coursework and received his bachelor's degree in Spanish language.
Dr. Smith remembers his undergraduate years as some of the most influential of his life, as he was given the opportunity to participate in several study abroad programs (stretching over six different countries) as well as extern in a variety of dental practices.
Dr. Smith considers traveling and dentistry among two of his favorite passions in life and is thrilled for any opportunity where he may combine the two. In 2013, Dr. Smith served in El Salvador as part of a medical and dental missions team and in 2014 was selected to travel to the Faculty of Dental Medicine in Sofia, Bulgaria as a student ambassador from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry. Dr. Smith considers himself blessed to now call East Tennessee home again and looks forward to greeting all patients with a warm smile and an exceptional attitude.
In his free time, Dr. Smith enjoys spending time with his fun-loving dog, Nehi, who we are training to become a dental therapy dog!
He also enjoys reading, hiking, and visiting new places. Many patients are surprised to hear that Dr. Smith has an identical twin, who also lives right here in Knoxville! He also has an older brother, Brett, and has one niece and three nephews. Dr. Smith looks forward to having children of his own in the future and is very close with his family, who for the most part all live in the East Tennessee area.
Owning his own dental practice in his hometown community has been a long time dream for Dr. Smith. Beaver Creek Dental is 100% owned and operated locally by Dr. Kyle Smith, who intends to serve our community for years to come.
