Welcome to the website of leading Sacramento dentist, Dr. Andrea Joy Smith! Whether you are looking for gum recession treatment, have periodontal disease, or wish to replace missing teeth with dental implants, Dr. Smith can help you. We offer a wide range of treatments to suit patients with different needs. Our site contains information on everything from the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) to mini dental implants. Take as much time as you need to look through the different pages and find the solution you are looking for!
Mini Dental Implants
Since Mini dental implants are much smaller than traditional implants, they can be placed in less time and are immediately functional. The smaller size requires less force to place and results in less trauma to surrounding bone. This means that less time is needed for healing, allowing the implants to become immediately functional. Mini dental implants are often used to hold removable dentures in place and eliminate problems such as slippage and bone deterioration.
Most gum recession treatments are considered invasive, as they involve cutting and removing tissue from one area and then attaching it to the gum line. PST™, however, involves only one small incision and no tissue removal. A tiny, pinhole sized entry point is made in the gum tissue so that special instruments can be used to loosen the tissue and stretch it over the exposed tooth root. Afterward, collagen strips are inserted through the entry point and used to hold the tissue in place. There is no need for scalpels or sutures.
Laser Periodontal Therapy (LAPT)
This is an innovative laser treatment that is used for various soft tissue procedures including periodontal disease treatment. Instead of using blades to remove tissue, a highly precise laser is used to vaporize only the affected tissue while leaving the healthy areas intact. The procedure is relatively short and must be performed once a week for about four weeks. We care about your oral health and offer advanced, high quality periodontal procedures to help you achieve your best smile.

This was my first time with Dr. Smith. I was greeted quickly and taken back quickly. Everyone was so helpful and genuinely friendly. No nervousness in site - how could I be nervous with such a confident staff? I would definitely recommend this office to anyone who is nervous about dentistry.
Andrea Smith is amazing. She is very professional and personal. She answers any concerns or questions you have. She cares very much about her patients. Her staff are fantastic. They are like family. I would recommend her to anyone. I have never left that office unhappy.
Wonderful, as always - Dr Smith and Staff as good as they get! Great Dentist and a better human being. She has worked with me to get a great smile after a lifetime of not having one...she worked with me in every way, she listened to my hopes and my budget and created a plan that worked beautifully. Thank you Dr. Smith - that is why I drive 4 hours just to keep her as my dentist. The best!
Dr. Smith has been our family dentist for the past 5 or so years, and I’m embarrassed to say that it has taken me this long to finally posting a review. No joke, I’ve had the thought to sit down, and write a review pretty much every time I’ve come in to have work done, but life just always seemed to get in the way… 😉 Anyway, we are here now, and I just have to say that if you’re looking for an awesome dentist that actually cares about you, and the health of your pearly whites, look no further.
Dr. Smith & her entire staff are SO kind, smart, and gentle! Scheduling with them is a breeze. They’ve even gone out of their way to stay late so that my husband could come in after work. You can see that the staff respects one another, and Dr. Smith. They all work hard, and seem to have fun while doing it.
Work we’ve had done: Invisalign retainers. I’ll see if I can post some before/afters soon! I had awesome results! Sedation dentistry for the husband. 😉 cleanings, fillings, and a root canal. I have a low pain tolerance, and sensitive teeth, and whenever I have work done, it is done gently, and with great care. Amanda at the front desk is more than happy to make sure that you know what your insurance will cover, and what you’ll be responsible for, so there shouldn’t be any ‘surprise’ bills.
Get over your fear of the dentist, and go see Dr. Smith! Your teeth will be glad you did. 😉 (cheesy, but true!)
Love this place. The staff was very welcoming. Andrea Joy Smith explained my procedure in detail and yes shes and true joy to be around. I will be recommending all my family and friends.
