Dr Roy Gordon Smith

Specialist Orthodontist. BDS Glasg 1968; DOrth Toronto 1977.

Dr Roy Gordon Smith has a wealth of knowledge and experience in orthodontics with a particular interest in transforming the smiles of adults. He received his dentistry degree from Glasgow University and worked in and around Glasgow for a year before relocating to Canada.

He qualified with the LDS (RCDS Ont.) and began private general practice in Hamilton, Ontario. After 7 years he returned to the University of Toronto Dental Faculty and obtained his Diploma in Orthodontics. He then opened a private orthodontic practice in Hamilton where he remained for 19 years.

The call of Scotland proved to be too strong and he returned with his family in 1996 where he established an orthodontic practice in Bellshill, Lanarkshire, which he sold several years ago.

Roy has a Canadian wife and two sons. He is a Rotarian and a Paul Harris Fellow and in his spare time he enjoys golf and fly-fishing.

Watch this short video to hear how Roy came to specialise in Orthodontics and how he has helped patients both young and old.



"My patients have benefited greatly with beautiful smiles. Many of them have told me how happy they were at family occasions like weddings. Orthodontics is a very gratifying profession."

Dr Roy Gordon Smith
