Dr. Smith has been on my mind today & as I found this guestbook online, I realized it is coming up on 2 yrs since he got his wings. My daughter was a patient of his and she just loved him. He was so good to us & I will always remember his lust for life. We had no clue he was going through any of this, as he always had a smile on his face & would always crack a joke with us. We will forever be grateful we knew Dr. Smith. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Alicia & Katie McKinney
Dr. smith is the ONLY doctor I can say...I genuinely loved and will TRULY miss...I found out that he passed away about a year ago when I needed my retainer replaced, and I still can't comprehend it! I have never gone to a doctor's office with such WARM Atmosphere...he made me feel as if I had the most BEAUTIFUL set of Teeth! His entire STAFF was SUPERB...thanks to the CHARACTER of the head!! Dr. Smith was an "All Around" GREAT GUY!!! Great LEADERS, EMPOWER their entire STAFF and PATIENTS, and Dr. Smith did just that!
Rob always had a smile and some kind words throughout our residency at U of D. A fine doctor with great humility. While Rob fought bravely, and I'm sure with a smile,it is a great loss to the orthodontic community and all who treasured him. My prayers are with his family.
I'm really sorry to hear that Dr. Smith passed away. Three of my children have braces that he put on. We will miss him.
You will always be in my smiles and thoughts!!
Dr. Smith you will surely be missed. As a former pt. I enjoyed my visits to the office. May God continue to bless your soul and your family, and staff.
Dr. Smith gave me confidence I never had in 20 years of my life. He was so sweet and kind to all of his patients! I will never forget everything he has done for me and my siblings in his practice! He will be greatly missed!
Thank you Dr.Smith for leaving such a good impression in this world.You were such a sweet man and knew how to make each person feel special.Today we had to return back to your office to get the last of the braces off and it was all we could do to walk in knowing you wouldn't be there.You would have been proud there was a gorgeous wreath on the door and it was business as usual.Thanks for being a part of so many lives.
Cathy,Wes & Lexie Needham

I will never forget the first time I met Rob, we were invited to his beautiful home for a crawfish boil. He treated us like family, and felt like a friend we had known forever.
