Dr. Mark Smith is a dentist at 525 Dental in London, Ontario. Dr. Smith was born and raised in the Windsor area along with 10 siblings. After graduating high school, Dr. Smith attended the University of Toronto to complete his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. Going back to his roots, Dr. Smith went back to Windsor to work at a dental clinic with his brother, Dr. Tom Smith, as well as instructing at St. Clair College in the dental hygiene program.
Eager to explore Canada, Dr. Smith and his wife, Cathie moved to Vancouver where he worked as a full-time associate. While in Vancouver, Dr. Smith attended many study groups and focused his studies on Prosthodontics and Endodontics. Three and a half years later, he and Cathie found London and loved it so much, they made it their home.
Working as an associate and eventual partner to Dr. Bill Walker, Dr.Smith gained the education and experience needed to maintain an already respected, well established dental practice. Dr. Smith, Cathie and their four children have been living in London for the past 25+ years.
