February marked the first anniversary of Z Dentistry in Northlake, and the community has been all smiles ever since. It’s the place to go for beautiful,
perfect smiles — thanks to the talents of Dr. Zachary Smith (or simply, Dr. Z) and his dedicated team.
From the moment the practice opened in 2020, it has been Z Dentistry’s mission to deliver an unrivaled patient experience through modern comprehensive dentistry, including implants, restorative, Invisalign, emergencies, and light sedation. So many folks have made Dr. Z their dentist since 2020, and they all appreciate the difference he has made in their lives. This includes giving them the radiant smiles they always wished for.
“Our vision is for Z Dentistry to be considered a widely trusted place where people value creating healthy smiles,” Dr. Z said.
That vision has become a reality.
To convey his commitment to the community, Dr. Z not only opened his practice in Northlake, but he also chose to live there. His busy office brings patients across Northlake, Roanoke, Justin, Westlake, and surrounding Fort Worth locations. Dr. Z’s desire to treat patients like neighbors and family sparked the team’s passion for relationship-based dentistry. Their goal is more than simply treating patients. They strive to form relationships built on trust with each and every patient, beginning with the first visit. Understandably, visits to the dentist can be unsettling. Patients who receive an unrivaled positive experience from that initial appointment feel less anxiety, and a relationship built on trust will form. Given his reputation for extraordinary skill, educating the patient, and “bedside manner,” many of Dr. Z’s new patients have heard about him through referrals. And the likelihood of his patients recommending him is high.
Dr. Z earned a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston. After graduating, he wanted to expand his technical skills further, leading him to earn a specialty certificate in a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry program (AEGD) at the Texas A&M College of Dentistry in Dallas. This additional training beyond dental school is typical of Dr. Z going that extra mile toward excellence. In fact, continuing education is still an integral part of his life. Always current with the latest in technology and innovations in dentistry, he is driven by a passion to give you the smile you deserve. Consequently, Dr. Z has more educational training than many, including more complicated surgical procedures, extended training in dental implants, and being a certified Invisalign provider with the tools to give you the highest continuity of care. For the most part, he does it all. And he does it well.
Adding to his credibility, Dr. Z is honored to have memberships in the Texas Dental Association, North Texas Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Dental Association. In addition, he is published in the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry Research.
Because he cares about establishing that doctor-patient connection, Dr. Z practices transparency with every patient regarding Z Dentistry’s processes and procedures.
“Instead of going to the internet for answers, I or my staff will be happy to answer your questions,” Dr. Z said. “We want to be your dental resource.”
He will thoroughly discuss specific procedures with you and develop customized treatment plans. This doctor goes above and beyond to ensure his patients are well-informed and comfortable before and after their visits. In fact, he personally follows up with patients the day after they have undergone a dental procedure or had sedation. It would be great if your dentist offered you his (or her) personal cell phone number in case you had clinical questions, but who does that these days? Dr. Z does! Another example of why Dr. Z rises head and shoulders above others in his profession.
Outside of the office, Dr. Z competes at a high level in endurance athletics. This includes triathlons and marathons, all of which require extreme discipline and dedication. His athletics mirror the kind of professional dedication, strong work ethic, and commitment to his craft that he demonstrates daily in his practice.
Z Dentistry provides patients with the finest in modern technology. Everything is digital in the office, with all the amenities to make you comfortable and give you the highest level of treatment. You can trust Z Dentistry to make your oral health a top priority and deliver an unrivaled patient experience. That isn’t just something they promise – it’s truly what they do. Now that’s something to smile about.
