Dr. Véronique Smith Hoffman
Dr. Véronique Smith was born and raised in Houston with her two brothers to a French mother and American father. During her studies in biology at UT in Austin, her interest in different languages and cultures compelled her to study Spanish and spend time in Argentina. After college, Dr. Smith attended dental school in San Antonio, where she had the opportunity to participate in several dental mission trips serving communities along the border near Eagle Pass and Laredo. The experiences cemented her resolve to use her profession as an opportunity to promote the dignity of everyone she works with. She believes that a key to this dignity is an honest and respectful relationship that allows her patients the space to make informed decisions that take into account their own values.
After completing dental school, Dr. Smith returned to Austin with her husband, Ian. She takes CE courses throughout the year to maintain her skills and increase her knowledge of the various subjects of dentistry. She is also a member of the ADA, as she considers it very important to participate in and support organized dentistry.
When not working with patients, Dr. Smith spends plenty of time reading, cooking, and gardening. Besides being important for your oral and overall health, good food is part of the “joie de vivre”!
