Meet Our Team
Donna - Registered Dental Hygienist. "I started practicing dental hygiene in 1988 in Eugene, Oregon. Following a move back home to Boise, I have been with A Reason to Smile since 1995. I enjoy working with Dr. Smith because I feel we are able to offer a warm and friendly approach to dentistry that is carefully combined with advanced technology. I feel that preventive care and education are extremely important to optimal dental care. I am not only concerned about the beauty of my patient's smile but also about the overall health of my patient. I cherish all the many relationships I have had the privilege to develop with my patients and their families. I live in Eagle with my husband Monte, where we raised our daughter Ariel. I enjoy spending time with family and friends in the many outdoor activities Idaho has to offer. My current obsessions are skiing, paddle boarding and white water rafting."
Brooke - Registered Dental Hygienist. "I have been practicing dental hygiene for 5 years and absolutely love what i do - mostly because of my wonderful patients! I love helping others and feel so lucky to play a role in the transformation of smiles. I have lived most of my life in Boise. I love this area because of all the outdoor opportunities. Hiking, biking and whitewater rafting are a few of my favorite things to do. I also enjoy playing the piano and traveling all over! I try to always have a trip to look forward to. I believe in working hard and playing even harder. :)"
