Welcome to Smith and Larson Family Dentistry!

Our dental office is home to a team of compassionate professionals lead by Dr. Cheryl Larson and her daughter, Dr. Jessica Smith. Our dentists provide individuals and families throughout the Ludington, Scottville, Custer, Manistee, Pentwater and Hart communities with comprehensive dentistry in a modern, family-focused environment. We deliver care that emphasizes patient-first solutions with the same friendly and respectful manner we would expect to be treated ourselves.

Since becoming a licensed dentist in 1982, it has been Dr. Larson’s goal to provide dentistry that is highly reliable when diagnosing, treating, and preventing oral health concerns for every smile. Dr. Smith moved back to the Ludington community in 2019 to provide comprehensive, compassionate and painless dental care to the community that she grew up in and loves. From treating your child after they’ve developed their first tooth, to placing full dentures for a parent or grandparent, our dental team is here to serve you!

Our knowledgeable and accommodating staff is always available to assist you and your loved ones. Regardless if you’re a patient of record or visiting us for the first time, we provide on-call emergency hours, so you can receive the professional dental care you deserve when you need it most!

Individualized Dental Care for All Ages

Smiling family in a dental clinic

Drs. Larson and Smith understand that every patient has their own unique oral health needs, smile goals, and expectations of treatment. To better serve you and your family, our dentists take the time to get to know you as an individual, rather than purely focusing on the issues at hand. Because our team finds immense gratitude in being your trusted dental care professionals, we never push procedures or treatments, choosing instead to communicate with you and provide education on the importance of optimal oral health.

Our available services provided at our office includes but are not limited to:

In addition to providing general and preventive services for all ages, we also work closely with trusted specialists like oral surgeons who place dental implants and pediatric dentists who can perform intricate surgical procedures when your child requires specialized care. Our team will help set up consultations with these specialists to ensure you and your loved ones receive the best dental care possible.

Quality Dentistry through Modern Technology and Treatments

To deliver patients of all ages with exceptional dentistry, we’ve equipped our office with advanced technology that also uses modern treatments. Dental x-rays allow us to obtain accurate images of your teeth, gums, jawbone, and neck without the need for messy impressions. Intraoral cameras allow us to take pictures inside your mouth and show you exactly what we are seeing. Advanced tools such as these allow us to explain your needs and educate you during oral health examinations.
